look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a lightly hazed golden. Small champagne like bubbles race to the top, battling the sediment for the quickest path to join their fellows in the thick white head. Aroma is medium fruity (banana and apple), and lightly yeaty. Flavor is apple and banana, ending clean and dry with some yeast undertones.

4.1/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy, on the lighter side of golden. One-finger head leaves minimal lacing.

Smells spicy and full of Belgian yeast. Pepper, clove, banana, apple, some mustiness.

Taste is smooth and comes on strong in the last half. Very spicy in a peppery way. Sweet and fruity. Finishes with some alcohol and lingering banana flavors.

Mouthfeel is medium, a bit creamy on the end. More carbonated that the pour would suggest.

This is a very solid beer, and very easy to find. Unibroue makes quality stuff.

4.4/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy orange body with a tight large white head. Excellent lacing on this guy.

Candi sugar sweet aroma. Tropical fruit papaya, mango. Nice clove and pepper to complement the sweeter aroma.

Banana mango clove estery fruity combo hits the tongue nicely with a good complex flavor profile. Finishes dry with a residual alcohol twang.

Phenomenal beer full of flavor. Large chewy full carbonated body. My perfect non-stout morning beer with to sit around and be lazy watching college football/basketball (go jayhawks)

4.35/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a cloudy, bright, straw-colored light amber. Beautiful two finger creamy head. Very persistent and leaves excellent lacing. Well carbonated. Very nice looking...Like Sophie Marceau (yea, yea I know she's not Quebecoise...get over it)...Elegant, beautiful and timeless...

Aromas are chock full of good stuff...I get sweet malt and Belgian yeastiness right away - very robust. Some coriander...Some fresher notes, too, like lemonade way in the back. Nice and balanced...This is looking like a World class ale so far...

Flavor is luscious, like Sophie's very feminine body...The head and body of this beer are creamy and flavorful...Carbonation swells up initially, but there is a fine malty creamy texture to it that is a pleasure to feel. This gives way to an early middle that starts off tangy, and then immediately moves into a warm series of flavors: nice malt component balanced very nicely by the yeast...they meld in perfect harmony. This is a less spicy version of a Belgian ale...But something about it is more subtle and nuanced. The malt and yeast dance around a little, until they finally give way to a slightly hoppy and understated bitterness that lingers for a good long time. Excellent beer. It's around $9/4-pak, so it ain't cheap or expensive. ABV is awesome at 9% and completely and totally masked. This is wonderful and drinkable to a fault. Many people would get very hammered off this ale. It's excellent on all fronts and hardly any fault to it. Must find and drink. Perfect any time of year, also...

What I like most: The beautiful, nuanced flavor profile, beautiful appearance, wonderful nose...pretty much everything.

What I like least: the price, and just barely a fault here.

Verdict: World class ale from Chamble, Quebec. Absolutely must find.

This was poured an immediately developed a HUGE foamy white head, with very small bubbles. The retention was excellent and when it (finally) died down it left excellent lacing around the goblet. The body was unfiltered with sediment suspended, and color chaging from light at the bottom to dark gold at the top. The aroma was of bananas, apple, citrus, cloves and sweet candy and fruits.
The taste was excellent, with an complexity as rich as I've tasted. Bananas, citrus, and clove were most present while sweet candy, yeasts, hops and fruits were defintiely there in spades. It was extremely creamy and enjoyable, with mild carbonation. This is truly an excellent beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A- Pours a hazy straw color with tall light white head.

S- Light citrus notes with a mice yeast twist. Light sweetness and hints of cloves in the background.

T- Leads with subtle lemon and apple notes, midpalate is yeast twist of sourness, with fruit juice sweetness on the finish.

M- Light, crisp, and refreshing. Could be a touch light on the carbonation but nothing that can't be wrung out to desired levels.

D- 9% what? This stuff drinks like uber delicious sparkling cider. Very light yet complex.

4.18/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter. "Best before 07-31-11."

Pours a yellowish orange, cloudy, with a smallish head (that may have been the result of a sub-par pour).

Nose is fruity and sweet, with a fair amount of spice. Flavors of banana and spice (clove?) dominate. Slight alcohol burn that comes in at the end, though it's pretty well hidden. Surprisingly light mouthfeel, but I have very little experience with tripels. Lots of small bubbles. Ends on the dry side, with almost a chalky feel.
