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

Nice pale color, huge meringue head that lasts the entire glass.

Smell is spicey, fruity, clove, grapefruit, just a huge, complex aroma.

Flavor is yeasty, flavors found in the aroma, just phenomenal flavor.

Mouthfeel is light and dry. Highly carbed.

Highly drinkable, I could drink this all night long.

Poured into a Chimay glass.

A: Pours a golden orange that has a medium sized head with minimal lacing.

S: Largely has a funky smell combined with bananas and apples; also has a light citrus hint.

T: Bubblegum and banana jump out initially in this flavor with an orange/apple aftertaste. Alcohol is noticeable, but very light. The beer also gives off a nice warming sensation.

M: Perfect mouthfeel; not too thick or thin.

D: 9% is strong, but this beer is still surprisingly drinkable; not too heavy either.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: A cloudy honey-golden color with a sizeable white creamy head. Head eventually fades a bit (to about a 1/4 inch), leaving white lace down the glass. Pretty typical for a brew of this style.

S: A decent nose on this one. Sweet malts and coriander up front, slightly floral undertones, finishes off kind of spicy (cloves, I'd say) with a peppery alcohol tingle.

T: Starts off a tad spicy. Clove and alcohol notes tingle the tip of your tongue, but fade rather quickly. Sweet malt, coriander, hints of orange and SLIGHT twangs of other citrus seem to be the forefront of the flavors. Finishes off with a wave of warming alcohol. However, this is a lot smoother than one would assume for 9% ABV.

M: Tight, crisp carbonation even after pouring. A little more carbonation than the norm, I thought. Overall pretty creamy, with a smooth finish.

O: While the flavors on this one excel far beyond most, I'm just not flabbergasted by how good this one is. It's definitely a beer to be sipped slowly and respected. Well-rounded flavors and a smooth, creamy drinkability make this a wonderful beer to relax with an truly enjoy. It's just not something that'll find its way into my regular pick-ups.

750 ML bottle with an expiration date of 4-6-14.

I had to use pliers to get the cork to budge and it left the bottle with a really loud pop but no overflow. It looks slightly hazy in the brown bottle and I can see some sediment.

A- Pours a slightly hazy gold color into a snifter with a one inch head that quickly dissipated to a foamy cap. Many lines of tiny bubbles.

S- What a magnificent nose. Sweetness, probably the alcohol but under that the malt and a hint of hops. Fresh fruit and floral notes. Deep, rich and persistent.

T- The taste is amazing. Mango, pineapple, mildly sweet up front giving way to a cider like tang at the finish. Some yeast notes in the finish.

M- Full bodied, carbonation is noticeable like a good sparkling wine. Carbonation yields to a velvety texture.

O- This is a very complex, well made triple with a huge flavor profile. I really want to give this a 5 but I didn't get the big creamy head that is supposed to be typical for this style. I'm not sure it is reasonable to expect a creamy head since this is bottle conditioned with carbonation that reminds me of fine Champaign. I am going to make this a regular part of my lineup and look forward to pairing it with food.
