look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

It had been along time since I had this treat. Thanks for sharing it at a bottleshare Dennis

Look: Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a 1/2 inch bubbly white head and good retention with some circular lacing

Smell: Banana bread, clove and some spices. Belgian yeast gives it a slight funkiness

Taste: The beer starts off with a slight funk from the yeast and then the banana bread flavor kicks in for the style it work nicely. the beer finishes with some citrus and a hint of spice

Mouthfeel: Not quite medium body and high carbonation that stings the roof of your mouth a bit off putting

Overall: This is one of the better triples I have had and one of the few beers from unibroue that I actually like.

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

A: Poured into a goblet. Appears a hazy golden orange color with a large white head that settles and leaves a fine layer of foam on top. Can see a ton of tiny bubbles rushing to the surface in the light.

S: Fruit (banana and pear), honey, spice and alcohol. Think there's some floral hops in there too.

T: Mirrors the smell but with more complexities, banana, pear and strawberry-like fruitiness followed by a big punch of sweet and earthy spice. Floral, honey-like hoppiness is nice in the snappy, dry finish. Sweet and spicy residuals coat the mouth.

M: Medium body with an incredibly lively carbonation. Almost perfect.

O: Excellent.

Poured into my trusty highball from the bottle with dinner.

Appearance: I don't know if the fridge conked out or something, but there was an enormous amount of foam with this beer, even when poured sideways. When the head finally dissipated, leaving nice lacing, it was golden at the edges and a dark straw at the centre, and more than a bit cloudy.

Smell: smoky and quite spicy, which was unusual, faint sweet and fruity notes.

Moutfeel: a perfect balance of thickness and fizz, it goes down very well.

Taste: it delivers on the promises its smell makes, with a nice piquance in front and not excessively hoppy. It finishes a bit citrusy, and malty. Very interesting, and very smooth for its alcohol content (9%)

Drinkability: it goes down well without offending the senses, and while it is not to my usual taste, it is quite nice, with a pleasant buzz to boot.

2012 bottle poured into a chalice.

Cloudy golden pour, 3 inch cream head, good lacing.Reminds me very much of other Unibroue brews in smell (and taste) smell of almond, pear, raisin. Taste much the same, light creamy, flavorful, amazing mouthfeel. Probably the most 'easy' of all the unibroue's in terms of drinkability and find-ability. Highly recommended.

This is a great, easy drinking tripel. It is complex and well made and is something I should buy more often.

It produces a nice head and great lace. There is a reasonable amount of haziness and little or no sedement (unexpected).

The taste is very light for such a big beer. The aftertaste is the highpoint - wonderful. I would like the beer if it were more tart, but I like it the way it is just fine as well. Recommended!
