4.23/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Nice light golden color. Hazy with a big head with a good dynamic of bubbles.

S: Pinapple, peach, lemon, orange, grass, wheat. Very nice.

T: As with the smell it is very complex. All the same tastes as listed above but the finish pretty nice. There is a little must like with most tripels but it is overshadowed by fruity flavors. Also a good sweetness.

M: Very bubbly. While not being overwhelming it has a bit of a rough feel to it. Otherwise sits pretty good with a light medium body.

Overall a very nice showing. Certainly shines above most tripels. It's pretty widely available and worth checking out.

La Fin Du! Love the name! This beer has a golden misty look to it.. I think the taste has a bit of a Belgian Tripel type of spice going.. I not to huge on the smell.. It has your typical Ale smell with a hint of Tripel smell to it.. Top 250 maybe yes but the lower end of the 250 in my opinion ..

4.24/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: A cloudy honey-golden color with a sizeable white creamy head. Head eventually fades a bit (to about a 1/4 inch), leaving white lace down the glass. Pretty typical for a brew of this style.

S: A decent nose on this one. Sweet malts and coriander up front, slightly floral undertones, finishes off kind of spicy (cloves, I'd say) with a peppery alcohol tingle.

T: Starts off a tad spicy. Clove and alcohol notes tingle the tip of your tongue, but fade rather quickly. Sweet malt, coriander, hints of orange and SLIGHT twangs of other citrus seem to be the forefront of the flavors. Finishes off with a wave of warming alcohol. However, this is a lot smoother than one would assume for 9% ABV.

M: Tight, crisp carbonation even after pouring. A little more carbonation than the norm, I thought. Overall pretty creamy, with a smooth finish.

O: While the flavors on this one excel far beyond most, I'm just not flabbergasted by how good this one is. It's definitely a beer to be sipped slowly and respected. Well-rounded flavors and a smooth, creamy drinkability make this a wonderful beer to relax with an truly enjoy. It's just not something that'll find its way into my regular pick-ups.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a snifter.

A-Cloudy yellow/apple colour. Moderate head with little retention. Lacing occurs in a complete wall formation when I tip the glass.

S-Very fruity with spicy pepper and clove. Moderate yeast aromas.

T-Light malts and significant fruit sweetness give way to black pepper and cloves.

M-Moderate to full mouthfeel with significant carbonation. Finishes sweet.

O-A great tripel and plentiful in these parts. A go-to for any occasion.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Yellow-orange pour, slightly hazy, with a thin dissipating white head. Fruity aroma, with mandarin orange, peach, and Belgian yeast. Flavour is sweet and almost syrupy, with a slightly bitter edge, reminiscent of orange marmalade or peach syrup. Bready notes and lots of Belgian yeast in the flavour too, classic Unibroue taste. A bit of caramel and apple as it warms. Dry, sweet, bready finish. A great Tripel.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Golden yellow, very vibrant color with a huge haziness that makes the beer extremely opaque. Very volatile, leaving an enormous, cloudy white head. The nose hits with some cooking spices, cloves, fruits and fruity esters, and a slight medicinal background. The taste follows through with heavy clove and banana up front, all based on the background of warming alcohol. Bubblegum comes through midway, as well as faint grape and orange. As the beer starts to warm up, I could taste some pear and sweet peaches coming out, too. Aftertaste is left with a nice helping of yeast and malty-bready flavors, along with a dash of clove and alcohol.

This is a well done tripel ale. Balanced extremely well and fairly complex - load of fruits and esters can be picked out of this one. Sweet, without being too sweet, and fairly mild on the palate for a 9% ABV brew. Bravo.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle pours into my glass a hazy golden yellow with a massive three finger head of creamy foam that billows up in the glass. Super fast moving active carbonation rushes up the side. Seems a tad bit over carbonated. Aromas start with spicy grains and light fruity aromas as well. Banana and apple are present along with clove and pepper. Earthy yeastiness about it. Quite robust, it almost smells creamy. Nice.

First sip brings a malty sweetness upfront that quickly give way to a ton of spicy, fruity flavors. Banana notes mingle with clove and pepper accents. The house yeast really shines through here with an earthy aspect to it as well. Flows down and finishes with peach and lemon accents, quite creamy with only a hint of alcohol. Tasty triple.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good creaminess. Carbonation is quite fast paced as it rushes down with each sip. Overall, a very enjoyable triple that also packs a bit of a punch as well. A couple bottles and I'd be feeling quite nice.
