12 oz bottle dated "best before" 7 Sept., 2012

Pours with a white head. Plenty of sediment in the bottle, much of which remains despite a light swirl mid-pour, but some of which comes out at the end of the pour tainting (aesthetically) the center of the white head. Head has excellent duration but leaves little lacing. Liquid is a cloudy yellow-gold.

Mainly fruity yeast and (apparent) spices in the aroma, with a touch of hops and hints of apples, bananas and pears. The taste is also quite yeasty-fruity, with hints of apples and apricots, and even some dark fruits. The high ABV is very well hidden in both the aroma (until it warms up) and the taste. Seems like there is more flavor in the finish than earlier on. Lightly tart.

M: refined, champagne-like feel, although with more body.

O: not my favorite style, but quite enjoyable nonetheless. I can easily see others giving this a very high rating. Flavorful and refreshing, but better as a slow sipper than as a session brew. Complex aroma and flavor.

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

Aroma is very nice. Fresh banana bread with lots of spice. Sweet, richly flavored, very tangy. This does seem like too much of a good thing, and so many crippled tripels could use a dose of that flavor. Lots of fruit flavors, seems to have pear and champagne to me. Possibly a touch of hops, but the bitterness seems to come from the yeasty mix. Every sip renews the strange complexity of this stuff. Bitter aftertaste that renews the desire for another sweet sip. Hot and sultry stuff.

I've had this 12 oz bottle for a year, and a screw cap, no less. It still says "best before 05-27-13." Years to go, according to these optimistic Canadians.

If you consider price and availability there isn't a better tripel. The spice note in the aroma and follows into the taste is something special, almost peppery in the aftertaste,i don't get alot of fruit in this one although there is definitely a sweetness back there somewhere, hard to go wrong with Unibroue and this is their best.
