Poured from bottle into Omegang tulip glass

Pours golden honey with a tight three finger pure white head - overflowed the glass. Spicey nose with cloves and pepper. Very subdued pepper and maybe cardamon spice combined with lots of honey and apricot/peach. I've not had a lot of Belgian-style beers, but this is my favorite so far.

This beer is a cloudy golden yellow, with a huge merangue like head of snow white foam that lasts a very long time and sticks like glue, leaving loads of lace.
Smells of fruit (pears or peaches?), light clove, earthy yeast and a bit of alcohol only begin to describe the complex aroma of this brew.
Awesome flavor, rather sweet and fruity, lots of complex spice flavors, clove and and a fruity flavor that I can't quite pin down that resembles the aroma. Very complex and tasty.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, even with the higher carbonation of this beer, long lingering finish of hops and fruit.
An outstanding beer, one of my favorite Belgian styles and not too pricey to boot.

Corked and caged, this beer pours a golden straw color, the light seems to get trapped in the cloudy body and brightens up the glass. A thick white head crowns the top of this beautiful pour and hangs around till the glass is half empty.

A heady aroma floods my nose- spicy, peppery, and fruity scents mingle quite pleasantly. It is strong, but clean and not overpowering. The belgian yeast character really shines through here.

The taste delivers everything that the aroma promised. The hops balances the yeasty spice, the bitterness dancing around the edge of my palate. Crisp, robust yeast flavors take center stage, hiding the malt sweetness.

A medium body with a good dose of carbonation cleanly washes way the fruity yeast flavors, leaving a lingering peppery flavor before the crisp finish.

This is everything I could want in a Belgian style Tripel. The funky tones of the Belgian yeast are in full force without overpowering my palate. The body is not too thin but washes down quite easily. Everything is in perfect balance.

A: Freshly poured, a hazy amber/gold, leaning orange. Light, fine foamy head, dissipates quickly leaving a thin surface rim and floating remnants. Beautiful lacing in repetitive cascading patterns.
S: Malty, coriander, sweet, orange
T: Strong malt, yeasty, mild citrus bite
M: Full, creamy, light, dry finish
O: One of the most satisfying beers I've had. The flavors are perfectly balanced, and while it's easily drinkable, it has a respectable alcohol content making it an excellent social choice.

Presented in a 750 shared with a few Canadians in my sisters garage. This was my first go at a Tripel and quite frankly this style is not for me, great beer, just not for me.

A - Poured a hazy yellow into a gold rimmed chalice with a thick white foamy head. Lacing throughout, a very attractive beer.

S - Fruity and spicy, peaches pepper and clove are initially present with a cinnamon and apple back.

T - Sweet and yeasty, not an expert on this style but it took some time to get used to. I thought the alcohol would be too overpowering but it wasn't which was nice.

M - Very smooth with a dry finish. Tons of carbonation and very light on the tongue.

D - I guess you could drink more than one, the fellas I was with did, but for me one was perfect. Recommended.

I am not a fan of this type of beer but do appreciate that many folks like them. I had it recently at a beer tasting. The appearance was cloudy and light yellow with a big head and a lot of carbonation. Taste was typical of a fruity vegetable beer. Mouthfeel was average. Smell was definitely fruity and citrus like. Overall this is a good beer for the style and is definitely drinkable if you are the pretentious type who follows the crowds who have nothing better to drink. However, it is better than an American adjunct brew.

Poured into a tulip glass it produces an inch of head that leaves lacing in clumps. The appearance is golden and somewhat cloudy. The aroma is of cloves, coreander and malt. The taste is very spicy with cloves and malty richness. Maybe a bit of citrus there. The feel is rich with a clean finish.

Seems like something best sipped after a rich meal. It's not something I'd knock down while mowing the lawn.

Defintely something I'll return to when I'm in the mood for Belgian Tripel.

C: The color is a light hazy yellow which looks like lemonade in the narrow end of the glass and like a hefeweizen on the wider end. The color also has a light pink hue which is kind of a plus. With a light pour it produced about a quarter inch of head, which dissipated in about a minute.

S: Light Citrus notes. Not much going on here. It smells to me like a slightly more complex hefeweizen than the Blue Moon standard. I guess that makes it slightly above average in this category.

T: This is where this beer really shines. At first taste you will definitely taste the citrus and the coriander in the beer. The best part of the beer in the complex aftertaste which really can't be described easily. The first taste is the best because your taste buds haven't yet adapted to the flavors and the alcohol, which is noticable but not a dominant presence here.

M: When pouring the beer I noticed that it poured thicker than your average hefeweizen or pilsner, which tend to be watery. Well, there's no arguing it now. It has excellent mouth feel. The beer has some weight which gives it an excellent body and also a slight bite on the tongue from the carbonation.

Overall Grade: B+/A-
