I dispense with my ordinary long disclaimer, discussion of methodology, preamble, and anecdote.

This beer is undrinkable. It tastes like a tarted-up wheat beer or Blue Moon. I hate wheat beer. I can't judge this according to style - sorry. I had one sip and almost spit it up. I had high expectations for this beer, and was severely disappointed. I'd rather have ten Bud Lights topped off with a Pabst than a single shot of this crap all eight days of the seven-day week.

Avoid like the plague.

To style (16E: spicing is allowed): 50/100
To taste: 6/100 (yes, you read that right, SIX)

4.2/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Color- hazy gold, with a small, pure white head.

Nose- lemon, coriander, pepper.

Palate- creamy and light, but with a good alcohol backbone. It is spicy and pleasantly dry, with a hint oakiness. A bit of alcohol wafts into my sinuses.

Very good, but not as refined as might be wished. Good with food.

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

Poured into a snifter

A - Hazy golden amber with a huge white head. A pretty bold appearance, for sure. Not much lacing.

S - Bold fruit aromas and yeast dominate. Pear and banana. Clove. A strong and inviting aroma profile.

T&M - Very complex malt flavor profile, a hint of yeast, and spice. Herbal hops, fruit, and malts finish. A carbonation bite is mixed in., but doesn't even come close to covering up the bold flavors. Medium to full bodied. Smooth with a clean finish. 9% abv, but iI can't taste a drop of alcohol.

D - Great flavor makes this easy to drink. THowever, high abv and the body is capable of being filling. Still, it's so good that it's still fairly easy to drink

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

A: Poured to a hazy orange with a two-finger, fluffy head that sticks around forever. Champagne-like carbonation - tight bubbles and rising throughout the beer.

S: Initially a citrus zest scent. Smelled a bit of banana bread as well.

T: Sweet, but not cloying. Orange zest. Other, lighter fruits are noticeable as well. A little bit of cloves at the finish.

M: Highly carbonated, but smooth and creamy. It really coats the tongue well. All of the right flavors stay with you.

D: In a word, outstanding. Didn't notice the alcohol content until the second pour from the 750ml bottle. I think that I could sip this one for a long time.

Virginia

3.98/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Straw colored with thick pure white head which dissipates quickly. Reasonably cloudy, with lively carbonation.

S: Smells of lemons with bread and banana sweetness.

T: This follows the smell - lemon, biscuit, banana, and some spiciness. The yeast flavors linger, coaxing me into another sip... and another. There is also some tartness late in each taste but this subsides to a nice clean finish. No alcohol comes through which is scary at this ABV.

M: Thick and creamy, with lots of carbonation with tickles delightfully.

D: This beer is full of flavor, alcohol, and carbonation -- putting these back would do a real number on you. For a Tripel, though, it is a real treat. I will enjoy this again for sure and would eagerly share it with friends.

4/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a two finger white head, lots of lacing, beautiful orange colored body, I can see all the carbonation rising to the top. Gorgeous.

Sweet orange candy, tropical notes, citrus on the nose, fresh orange. Slight pine aroma as well. Hard to describe but they all go together so well.

Bit of spice with tropical fruit and citrus notes on the tongue. Rather mild bitter taste, and pretty nice balanced. Refreshing taste. Bit of piney and earthy notes on the tongue. Leaves a dry citrusy-like aftertaste. For a 9% ABV, the alcohol is hidden very well.

Medium body with lively amounts of carbonation.

Really good Tripel from Unibroue.

5/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Every bit as good as advertised. 12 oz. bottle poured into a Belgian goblet.

A -- Golden, deliciously golden. You couldn't artificially color a beer better than this. A sprightly mousse that fades to nothing almost immediately.

S - Light malt, with a hoppy hint. Really sets you up to enjoy the taste.

T - A home run of taste, again the light malt hits the tongue, blends easily with a citrus and slight sweetness. If you find Delirium Tremens too sweet, this is a tripel you should try. Each sip invites another immediate sip.

M - The carbonation keeps it light in the mouth. It has that Westmalle Tripel mouthfeel that takes me back to La Morte Subite in Brussels. This is brewed by Canucks? By God, someone up there knows how to brew an ale!

Overall, a great brew. Now I believe all the raving about this ale.

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.
