4.78/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

The pour is a hazy golden color with a nice fluffy white head.

The smell is very floral with hints of fruits, mostly citrus. Also a bit of buttered biscuits as well.

The taste is initially a mix of tropical fruit with slight floral hints coming through. There is also the presence of cloves and other spices I can't put a finger on. The finish is a blend of yeast that is warmed very slightly by the alcohol.

The mouthfeel is light and pleasantly light and fizzy.

This is an amazing brew overall. Very complex smells and flavors are found with every sip. Even towards the end of the glass I struggle to connect what I am tasting to other tastes and smells so I'm just going to give up and simply say that this is an excellent example of a tripel that I would gladly have any time.

2.83/5  rDev -34.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Looks nice. Golden in color with a huge frothy white head. Slight amount of lacing, nothing spectacular.

Smell: Smells strongly of yeast and a slight hint of citrus.

Taste: The yeast is overpowering, just like any other unfiltered "ale on lees" beer I've had thus far. Just when I think I can taste citrus, the yeast takes over. I can't help but get the same overwhelming taste out of all of these. There is a warming alcohol taste at the very end, but no too overpowering... probably the best thing about this beer.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated.

I'm really not sure how people can drink these types of yeasty beers regularly.

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

A - Beautiful golden color, looks like wheat in the sun. Some minor lacing.

S - Very yeasty, but good.

T - Leaves a little to be desired, citrusy, but overall nothing lasting or memorable.

M - Carbonated a little too much for a tripel, in my opinion.

D - Would make a decent session beer, but not one to impress would-be beer buddies.

4.65/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

From a 750ml bottle into a Tulip glass.

Visual (4) - Very foggy, golden in color, thin quickly dispersed head (for a Tripel). Gives the appearance of an unfiltered wheat beer, except without the active head.

Aroma (4) - Spicy, malty, alcoholic undertones. Fine sweetness hidden under the initial sniff

Mouthfeel (5) - Spiciness continues, more-so than the initial smell. Beautifully complex. Yeast creates an active coarse feel.

Taste (5) - Instantly complex, spicy and interesting. The alcohol is initially masked by a spicy, herby flavor but still kicks at the end. True to the Belgian Tripel style, the flavor lingers at the end

Overall (4.5) - I was hoping for more head (especially from a Tripel in a Tulip glass) and the aromas seemed to dissipate too quickly, especially compared to the fantastic, lingering and complex mouthfeel and taste of the beer itself. This is a fantastic tripel and one of my second or third favorites in the style. Very much worth picking up a bottle (or two) to savor.

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

Pours a nice golden color with a haze and nice white head. The head lingers and fades into nice lacing that stays the length of the beer. Smell is wonderful citrus and spices also a hint of clove. Taste is delicous very bright floral citrus with undertones of yeast and hops, a very balanced taste not too sharp and very bright. The mouthfeel is very smooth and clean not overly carbonated and not flat like some tripels. Drinkabilty is great except for the high abv but an exceptional tripel to have. Couldn't session it or it could spell trouble.

Bottle from a four pack of La fin du Monde. Into an oversized Burgundian wine glass.

Poured slowly to avoid sediment. Really a beautiful dark straw color. Thick one inch head with little retention. It would have laced the glass, but didn't stick to the glass.

Smells remarkable - golden delicious apples, a bit of clove, and some honey. No hint of the alcohol.

Tastes with honey balanced with malts finished off by bitter hops. The fruit flavors are present, but masked by the more traditional beer flavors.

A little dense - a touch more carbonation would have been well appreciated, but it works without it.

Easy to drink, but a real sipper. A great take on the tripel style.
