4.38/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 25.4 oz/750ml corked bottle.

APPEARANCE: Hazy, yellow and bubbly. There is a half finger head initially and very little lacing, the head dissipates after a few minutes.

SMELL: reminded me of champagne, apples/pears and peppery.

TASTE: In a word complex. Citrus and fruity with taste of pears and banana, yeast and pepper, the alcohol is present but very well hidden. The hops are subtle and in balance with malt.

PALATE: Sticky, medium bodied, effervescent.

OVERALL: I truly enjoyed this beer and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys the tripel style. I salute Unibroue for making a delicious beer and selling it at a reasonable price and for offering in a 4 pack or 25.4 oz bottle option. This brewery makes excellent beer and apparently has an outstanding sales/marketing department too. I can't wait to try more of your beers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A:
Pours a hazy dandelion-esque yellow with a creamy, gloppy white head. Good retention; no lacing to speak of.

S:
Sweet and yeasty on the whole with strong pepper, cane sugar, and soap. Quite fresh smelling.

T:
Rich and crisp. Peppery and heavy with yeasty goodness. It finishes fresh and floral with some citrus notes and a vaguely boozy twinge.

M:
Prickly with a creamy head, it is a tad syrupy after a while but doesn't linger too bad and is pleasurable overall.

O:
Really tasty Tripel. It verges on too yeasty but that is the only thing that I can think of that is even close to wrong with it. Really enjoyable beer. Better than one would think.
Sweet but not sticky. Well-carbonated. Easy drinking. But don't be fooled she packs a wollop. Would have again. Worth finding.
