I've had this beer many, many times so this review is from memory (shared a 750 last night). I always serve chilled to well chilled, pours golden/ light orange with a billowy head that disappears within a few minutes. smell is fruity, spicy, slightly herbal. Taste has a wide range of flavors that seem to show out at different times, banana/ clove, sweet almost caramel malt flavors, some how dry and effervescent yet with a smooth creamy finish all at once. great for a toast, nice to sip (or guzzle) with food, just watch out for the 9% abv 'cause you cant tell it's there.

12oz bottle poured into a branded La Fin Du Monde chalice.

A: Golden/Amber color with some haze. Bone white head is comprised of fine bubbles. Great retention. Wispy patches of lacing.

S: Fragrant floral and fruity aromas of sliced pear and apple blossom. Apricot too perhaps, and golden raisin. Vague herbal undercurrent. Yeasty. Peppery phenols. Toasted biscuit.

T : A melange of tropical fruits up front. Mandarin orange, apricot, orange marmalade. Sliced pear and apple blossom too. Dash of confectioner's sugar sweetness. This is all balanced by mildly bitter grassy and herbal flavors and alcohol. Toasty, biscuity malt base. Peppery and slightly medicinal phenols. Powdery yeast throughout. Finish is doughy and herbal.

M: Medium-thick body. Full, round, and creamy-soft. Fine carbonation scrubs firmly but gently. Awesome texture, very well structured.

O: As close to perfection as it gets. Bar none one of the most well-structured and well-balanced brews out there. Its potency commands respect, and when sipped slowly and contemplated it offers a most memorable and rewarding experience. A must-drink for any enthusiast of Belgian-style beers.

Hazy orange. Small white head. Smell is fantastic; belgian yeast esters throwing out sweet banana aromas, maybe some funky apple and a hint of orange. This tastes sweet, banana like and just a hint of booze. Highly carbonated, and a warming sensation from the alcohol. This is an outstanding tripel.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Best before date of March 14th 2016.

Poured a murky, light golden color with a 1-2 inch white head. Nice lacing.

Aroma is light and citrusy with some malt and fruit notes. I notice some grapefruit smells along with crackers.

A hoppy, fruity taste at the front is followed by stronger malty, biscuity flavors. Slight bitterness but nothing overwhelming. Has a medium-bodied mouthfeel with a decent amount of carbonation.

Overall this is a great beer that definitely hides its 9% alcohol. It really is quite refreshing for a heavier beer, almost like a lager or pilsner, but it has way more flavor than most beers in those categories.

One of my favorite brews. First time I had it, there was a match lit inside my cheeks and the parade had begun.

Was a great beer overall. Was very smooth an had a nice fruity taste. The alcohol was well hidden. Can't wait to have this one again!
