look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A - Deep golden color, large foamy head, lots of bubbles rushing to the surface

S - Yeasty with a slight hint of citrus with a distinct freshness

T & M - Sublime, smooth and yeasty with just a slight hop bite. Fruity, perhaps apricots. Finishes first with a bit of pepper, and then, finally the alcohol presents itself.

D - The alcohol content makes it hard to drink a lot of these but the taste is so wonderful that you just want to grab another one.

Pours a cloudy bright gold with a highly carbonated one inch head. Smells like flowers. There is also a sweet citrus smell. The taste is very sophisticated and very complex. Again there is a sweet citrus taste. It's very light in the mouth despite the heavy yeasty (<- not a word, but it should be) appearance.

I'm not giving this a 5 and I think I should explain why. I find that this beer, as good as it is, is too sweet. A little more bitter aftertaste and a little less sweet citrus flavor would move this beer closer to perfection.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? One of my all time favorite brews. Beautiful blonde complexion, incredibly complex nose and the perfect balance of spice, fruit, malt and hops makes this brew dangerously drinkable. It really does not get much better than this. Kudos to Unibroue for retaining the quality of this fine tripel over the years.

Exceptional in every way.

A- Sizeable two finger foam that turns to nothing quickly, hazy pale color that looks like other similar beers

S- I mean this smells like a woman should, it is beautiful like fresh baked bread, banana, clove, all sorts of spices but especially pepper. You just want to shove this up your nose and smell it all day.

T- This beer is so delicious, talking about flavors almost seems ridiculous. This is an adult beverage in more ways than one. It is one of the few beers that tastes identical to its smell. Definitely an acquired taste (I would make another immature comment, but that would be in poor taste) as I didn't like it when I first went to Canada.

M- Lighter than you would expect, it is not syrupy, however this is no lightweight, gives you a full mouthfeel while you are drinking it, and has a novelty effect if you leave it on your tongue for a few seconds (feels like pop rocks on your tongue)

D- You will feel the 9%, but you won't taste it, or feel it in your stomach. If you want a legal high this is the way to go, drinking a pitcher of this at a hookah bar was stronger than anything else I have ingested in the last year.

From what I have had so far this is my favorite belgium style brew, I have had only a few tripels, however from what I have tasted I can not imagine a more flavorful 9% beer that hides the alcohol flavors so well.

A&S: Pours a murky pale yellow with a nice head that bubbled up slightly even though I was pouring conservatively. Smell is fruity and sweet without any scent of hops.

T&M: Mouthfeel is very crisp with a slightly dry aftertaste. A lot of carbonation. Taste is very fruity and a little sweet. My most recent foray into this style was very boozy in taste, so I'm impressed how the alcohol is hidden beneath the malts in this brew. A very nice taste, not too heavy, tastes great on a warm summer night like tonight.

O: I purchased this one after my last try of a tripel when I saw that this was the highest rated in it's style. It definitely is very good, I can't saw with certainty that it's better than all others in this style, but still very tasty. I would definitely be willing to shell out the money again to drink this one.
