Obtained from a Sommelier Selection six pack of Unibroue beers. This was the crown jewel of the pack. I had no idea I was in possession of the top-rated Tripel on all of BA in this bottle until recently. Side poured with standard vigor from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice, two finger pillowy white head that sticks around for a minute but leaves little lacing. Nothing special about the packaging. Heavy carbonation action can be seen in the bubbles inside the glass.

Smell - Smells wonderful, like a big, yeasty fruit bomb. All tripel, all the way.

Taste - The taste is very layered, with the initial creamy smoothness of breads and yeast followed with a slight fruitiness in the middle. Apricots, a little banana, and other fruits are all present on the palate. An excellent drink. There is a hint of alcohol, but nothing overwhelming. Just enough to let you know its there.

Mouthfeel - Finishes smooth and creamy, with pretty substantial carbonation.

Overall - I can see why this beer is so highly rated...it deserves it. Excellent from the time it is poured into your glass until the last drink. Highly recommended, I will buy and drink this again. This is a strong candidate for one of the best beers I've ever had, and I wouldn't be ashamed to show up at any beer party with this in tow.

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

A: Nice light golden color. Hazy with a big head with a good dynamic of bubbles.

S: Pinapple, peach, lemon, orange, grass, wheat. Very nice.

T: As with the smell it is very complex. All the same tastes as listed above but the finish pretty nice. There is a little must like with most tripels but it is overshadowed by fruity flavors. Also a good sweetness.

M: Very bubbly. While not being overwhelming it has a bit of a rough feel to it. Otherwise sits pretty good with a light medium body.

Overall a very nice showing. Certainly shines above most tripels. It's pretty widely available and worth checking out.

served from a bottle into a snifter-style glass

A: nice golden cloudy color with two-finger foamy white head that shrunk but stayed around throughout. No lacing.

S: honey, wheat, mildly spicy

T: Refreshing - honey, wheat, mild orange/citrus, malts. Sweetness level is just right. Very little alcohol taste.

M: good body with moderate level of carbonation. not syrupy at all.

O: Outstanding tripel, probably the best one I've ever had. Worth seeking out.
