750 mL bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on 12/17/2012. Review date 9/30/2013.

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color. Hazy, opaque appearance. Carbonation bubbles streaming up the glass. Approximately a finger of a creamy, white head consisting of tight, white bubbles. Recedes slowly, leaving a persistent lacing. Very good looking tripel.

Smell: The aroma kicks off with a pop of fruity sweetness, lots of grape character, a bit of apple, some underlying dark fruits (figs/raisins) and a citric tartness. Beneath this there are hints of malts and bready notes, cracker-like qualities. Finishes with some earthy characteristics and a black peppery spiciness. Very complex aroma as it unfolds in the nose.

Taste: Starts with a sweetness, less pronounced than the nose. Many fruit characters, some champagne-like grape flavors, some orange and green apple as the sweetness fades into a slight tartness. This is carried along the tongue as it fades into the malt flavors, some cracker and biscuit breadiness, leaving a spicy finish, notes of pepper and clove, some general baking spice flavors. As complex as the nose, a joy for the tongue to pick apart.

Mouthfeel: Good body to this one as it first hits the tongue, a powerful scrubbing from the numerous carbonation bubbles scrubs over the tongue, leaving a sharp tartness. A bit of a powdery feeling as the bready notes start to hit on the taste, which grow into a velvet smoothness as it finishes. Leaves a bit of warming from the alcohol at the end which just pairs perfectly with the spicy finish. Fantastic stuff.

Overall: This is an excellent beer. An absolute joy to drink. Perhaps best of all, it's so readily available and at around $8.49 a bottle in this area, it's greatly affordable for the quality. If this is the end of the world, this beer is not a bad way to go out at all. Wonderful stuff from Unibroue.

A triple that seems to stir triple the amount of conversation...

Pours an amazing golden yellow with a huge head that sticks around until the end. I certainly can't ask for more than that.

Smell is beer concentrate... spicy lemony bread, grains and earthy hops.

The balance of flavors in this beer are most likely the deciding factor in its reputation... such a nice balance allows a solid spectrum of spices, warm banana bread, grains, esters, sour cream, pears... really every sip has a few miles to it, as every flavor fights its way to the top.

Mouthfeel is "float" consistency of creamy fizziness.

A solid, oldschool, thorough sipper, and the benchmark for balance in the triple category.
