Pours a hazy light gold from the tap. Big, foamy white head that holds for a bit. Smells of hay and fruit. Nice blend of apples and pears hits the tongue, with a touch of white grape. Smooth, crisp mouth. This is an excellent tripel that is light and refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured into a snifter, a huge head appears with vigorous carbonation. Head recedes quickly. Appears almost champagne-like.

Aroma: Musty, farm yard aroma typical of the Belgians. Spicy, notes of coriander, almost bubblegum smell (possibly from the addition of Belgian candi sugar). Delicious aroma...

Taste: Delicious! Spicy, hay-like, farmy Belgian flavor. Very full flavored. Sharp & tangy, and finished clean on the palette. At 9% ABV, alcohol very well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp & clean. Really smooth for the high ABV%. Very high carbonation gives the impression of champagne or sparkling wine.

Drinkability: Very, very drinkable! I have a weak spot for this Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Easy drinking, smooth & clean.

Comments: Excellently crafted! This is my favorite beer at this time. Awesome. Very well balanced & flavorful. High ABV hidden with finesse behind the wonderful flavors. This is truly a delicious Belgian-style beer from Unibroue...

4.95/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - Slightly hazy light orange, which a dense whipped head, which maintained through the glass, with clingy lacing. Nice carbonation.

S - Slightly fruity, with clove and spicing notes.

T - Here is where the beer shines. Classicly tripel with spice, clove, fruit. Smooth complexity makes this brew a standout. 9% ABV is so well hidden that this is deceptively devilish. Very, very well made.

M - Smooth and silky. Nicely carbonated. This beer just swims on the tounge.

D - Would it not be for the 9% ABV, this beer would be an all night drinker. This beer is so well done that all the flavors, aromas, and textures meld so well as to make this a really drinkable tripel. Possibly my favorite tripel.

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

A - Hazy light golden color with a white bubbly head. Some lacing.

S - Sweet and spicy. Clove, some banana, and a subdued pepper aroma. There seems to be alot of other things in there, but I can't pick them all out. Maybe apples or pears. Truly marvelous; if thay made an air freshner of this I'd buy them out.

T/M - In my opinion, the malts get in the way. Nice and bubbly/frothy feel. Spicy bite of cloves and pepper. Mild ripe fruits, apples, pears and definately banana.

D - The alcohol sneaks up on you, but it is incredibly well hidden. I'd have another in a heartbeat, but I'd pay for it!

4.15/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark Yellow/Orange. Looks thick. You can see 1/8-1/4 inch of yeast on the bottom.

S: Complex, strong, dangerous.

T: Strong taste. You know you're drinking something with a lot of alcohol in it. After taste stays for a long time.

M: It feels warm and varied in the mouth.

Overall: Excellent if you can drink just one. Too strong to drink all day.

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.
