Poured into a snifter.

A: Cloudy golden color with one-finger, off-white head that left a nice film. Good lacing.

S: Wheat and tropical fruit aromas. Belgian yeast.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Spice and Belgian yeast.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Slightly warm.

O: Great Tripel. Looks phenomenal in my glass and smells great.

I faced the end of the world with a tulip glass.

Appearance- I am greeted by a bone-white, two-finger, puffy crown of foam. It has great retention. The cap is craggy and loaded with small bubbles.

The cloudy body is the color of sunflowers. The beer leaves behind no lace.

Smell- This one is full of Belgian fruits. There is banana, red apple, and a little clove. It is very clean, but at the same time, generic Belgian notes.

Taste- The palate follows the nose pretty closely, and that is usually a good thing. So much clove, banana, and herbalness up front.

It also has some citrus quality to it mid-drink and in the finish, lemon being the most obvious. This is pretty good!

Mouth feel- A solid medium body with a little zip from the carbonation that is a nice touch. This is not the kind of beer that you want to be flat.

Overall- This is a pretty good beer with a Belgian personality. The flavors are a little straight forward, but they are well done. And it helps that it is so drinkable.

Bottle poured into Ommegang stem glass, a nice Christmas present from my girlfriend.

Two finger head

Hazy straw color

S: Barley, cloves, spices, sugar, and a whiff of alcohol.

T: Candi sugar, barley, banana, grapes, and hop bitterness.

M: Light and refreshing

Overall, this is a great beer that betrays its alcohol content. I could not tell it was 9% ABV, but it is still not a session beer. Truly, it is worth trying. I'll have this in my fridge again.

750ml brown glass bottle with hood and wire cap over a cork served into a La Chouffe tulip in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are extremely high given its current ratings and the recommendation of a friend. Acquired at Davidson's Liquors for $6.99.

A: Pours a three finger head of no cream, bad thickness, and pretty good retention. Colour is a nontransparent light honey-gold.

Sm: Pleasant light malt, moderate crystal malt, honey, heavy lemon peel, and clean barley. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Heavy lemon peel throughout, with some light tame spices that I quite fancy. Some ginger and clove. Tastes like a hefeweizen and witbier combined, brewed with Belgian yeast. Has some yeast, but not a significant amount. The alcohol doesn't come through at all. The lemon is a bit overdone, in fairness. It is quite estery. Nicely balanced excepting the lemon. The yeast on the finish is lovely. Well built for the style, but it does resemble other styles (as afore noted).

Mf: Smooth and wet, but actually a touch too thick. Suits the flavours pretty well.

Dr: Very drinkable, especially for the high ABV - which doesn't come through. I'd like to try it aged, but I don't know that it'd be best on-draught. A nice little tripel that deserves revisiting. At $6.99, there's no reason not to age it. I just wish they'd tone that damned lemon down.

750 ml bottle served in a goblet, reviewed live:

A - Pours a murky straw/honey golden color with a thin, 1 finger head. Retention is pretty poor, but excusable for the high abv.

S - Strong pale and crystal malt foundation gives way to honey, banana, clove, and citrus esters. Very pleasant and inviting.

T - Lemon, clove, unidentified spice, honey and pale malt meddle nicely. It's complex and subtle. The alcohol comes through on the finish, but it fit's and isn't overbearing. Very well built. Reminds of wheat with Belgian yeast.

M - Light and carbonated well. This ain't your ordinary tripel.

D - I'm impressed by this one. It's subtly complex, and easy drinking to boot. For the price and quality it'd be hard to better.
