12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A - Orange-gold with plentiful carbonation and one inch of dense, bone-white head.

S - Fruity scents of peach and mango, candi sugar, nutty yeast.

T - Mellow fruits - peach, golden raisin, mango - with white pepper and clove. The beer is subtly sweet with enough spice and hop bitterness for good balance. Nutty yeast flavor rounds out the palate.

M - Prickly carbonation perks up a smooth, round body.

D - This is a solid, reliable beer that's worth revisiting from time to time. Dangerously quaffable with its hidden alcohol of 9 percent.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a clear pint glass. Best before 03-25-13.Paid $2.99 at John's Market.

A-Pours a hazy pale yellow to light amber hue with a one finger, beige head with poor retention and virtually no lacing.

S-Fruity, malty, spicy, and sweet. Very pleasant aroma of cloves, pears, apples, almost reminiscent of hot cider. Nice.

T-Elegant balance of spice and everything nice, I mean there a very pleasant sweet pear taste with a clove and pepper like yeast presence. Definitely improved as it warmed. Quite nice.

M-Very smooth for 9.0% ABV. Carbonation level is spot on. Mouthfeel is nearly luxuriant. I enjoy rolling this around before swallowing.

D-A very fine beer that is more affordable than many other triples.

As is evident by my numbers, tasting the beer was not nearly as satisfying as looking at the beer. du Monde poured a foggy, light, straw yellow with an inflated head. The lace was exceptional. The smell was sweet and pungent with lime and other citrus flavors. The taste was a little too carbonated and it was a tad too tart for my liking. The alcohol and pepperness in the beer was just not balanced by anything else. It did have some good, rich malts and first rate bitterness. Overall a good brew, but I am not yet sold on them.

The BJCP gives this as an example of a Tripel, but I tend to agree with the BA, Belgian Strong classification. I drink this often, I decided to finally give it a proper review.

It pours a hazy yellow with a beautiful crisp frothy lace head. A sweet aroma suggests fruit perhaps peach. It has a creamy character that is full of carbonation. The 9% ABV is not noticeable in the taste or mouthfeel making it very drinkable. The finish is effervescent and clean. It’s very flavorful and downright delicious.

Unibroue makes fine products and this is not exception. As I mentioned above, I have this somewhat regularly and I anticipate many happy returns.
