12oz bottle poured into a chalice.

Pours a nice hazy gold. Small head and not much lacing.

Oranges on the nose, as well as a biscuit/malt smell. Light floral notes as well. Maybe even a little banana.

Good malt taste, with some fruit and slight booze. The alcohol mixes well with the fruit making it more of a citric acid type feeling than a boozy type taste. Definite oranges as well as some spice. I taste a little banana as well, like a weizenbock. Very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Slight carbonation, but not overwhelming.

Good beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a huge, thick white head. Great retention, head never fully disappears. Aroma is fruity, with bananas and spice. Taste is of clove, pepper, fruit, and a bit of a grassy finish. Good beer but not up there with St. Berny's tripel in my opinion.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottle is marked best before June 2015.

Look: golden body that is cloudy with yeast and sediment. A gentle pour gives a two finger head of white foam that lasts a long time. As I drink, there's only a little lace left behind in this beer and it doesn't stick around for very long.

Smell: Belgian spices, clove, pepper, fruity smells of pears and peaches, and a hint of citrus peel.

Taste: the fruit from the aroma stands out with hints of spice and a bit of alcohol. There's a bit of a phenolic taste as well as some orange peel. Its sweet without being cloying and there are some yeast flavors in here too. Nothing here is over powering and it all works together nicely. Well balanced tripel.

Feel: medium bodied, nicely carbonation, hides the alcohol well.

Drink: easy drinking and you could have a few of these if it weren't 9% alcohol.

Overall, a pretty good tripel. I've yet to have a tripel that particularly impressed me but this one comes close. I can see why this is such a popular tripel. I would recommend giving it a try. Cheers!

The colour of this beer was golden. Heavily gaseous out of the bottle, with a large and loudly bubbling white head. The head died down rapidly and the heavy carbonation fizzled down to a dull roar. Yeasty bits were visible, suspended in the view. No lace formation. Looks good.

The smell was spiced and clovey with some degree of sweatness notable. A somewhat yeasty presence also lingered.

The taste was very refreshing and crisp. These guys seem to be able to brew these styles with the perfect amount of spice character that doesn't leave you feeling like you just drank a glass of potpourri. Very tastefully done and delicious. Apple flavors and a pinch of hoppy dryness add complexity to the spice backbone. Good bite and a nice crisp mouthfeel with a slightly clovey finish left over. Very highly drinkable with a very pleasant flavor. Another solid brew from the Nordiques.

Pours a cloudy dark straw color with a fluffy white head that settles down to a thin skim.
Smell is nice. Bready, sweet, wheaty malt with a hint of lemon. It smells like what I imagine a strong German Weisen would smell like.
Taste is bold yet smooth. Heavy on the sweet malt. Lots of malt here, not a lot of bitterness, and the alcohol is expertly hidden. This is a tasty brew. It reminds me of Andechs Weissbier even though they're not the same style. But that's certainly not a bad thing to be reminded of Andechs.
If I have one complaint, it's that this bottle is overly carbonated. The taste is smooth, but all the bubbles exploding in my mouth adds harshness that impairs drinkability a bit.

Congrats to our northern neighbors for creating this amazing brew that I now have on my favorites list.

It's a dark golden color with a boat load of white foamy head that doesn't die easily. It's rather cloudy, and this one had a few chunks of dark sediment that my first one didn't. The aroma is mostly fruit with a bit of wheat. The flavor just blew me away. A bit of wheat, then lemon, orange, cloves, spices. A rather complex mix that are strong and plentiful. It knocks your taste buds out and makes you ask for seconds. It finishes just a tad tart but still sweet.

This beer poured as nice straw color, with ample bubbles, complete with some spontaneous carbonation in the glass.

It smelled of horse blanket and flowers,with a hint of sugary sweetness. There is also a faint yeasty scent to this beer as well.
The taste was crisp and clean, slightly bitter in the front, finishing with a nice little bite that ended abruptly, very dry.
Nice bubbly beer, with gobs of carbontaion, medium in body.
This beer is polished! I could get my swerve on drinking this bad boy! Clearly my favorite Unibroue product.

Poured into Stella glass

A: Absolutely beautiful brew, perfect golden amber hue. Two finger head than kept for a long while and then disappated but not all the way.

S: Smell is wonderful, I get a bit of floral and perhaps corriander.

T & M: If a friend who only drinks macros had only one beer to drink to be introduced to the world of craft beers this is the one I would pick. There is so much to the mouthful it is hard to place all the different flavors that are there. It is a truly amazing beer.

D: Heavens yes it is drinkable, it is 9% ABV but there is no hint of the high alcohol as I'm enjoying this truly superlative beer.

This beer truly stands atop the summit of all brews and should be tried by all beer drinkers once.
