3.7/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

My first review!
What amazes me most about this beer is that it is made in large quantities by a brewery owned by Sleemans, yet it is every bit a beautiful craft beer. And it can be bought at the Beer Store in a case of 24 for $46.95 making this just under 2 bucks a beer. It's not often you can enjoy a beer this good for that little.

Pours beatifully into a snifter leaving tiny lacey bubbles after the fine white head dies down. Thick slow legs. Swirling it around a bit excites the bubbles again and opens up the banana champagne aroma.

Tingles at the front of the tongue, opens up spicey and sweet then recedes at the back of the mouth into hints of banana and a kiss of alchohol that is very subtle at 9% ABV. I get a citrusy cream soda taste throughout that is just delicious. I'm very glad it is so easy to get a hold of these beers and I'm introducing all of my friends to it.

Merry Christmas all!

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

Cloudy orange color with a foamy think head. Awesome head retention And lacing. Sticks to the glass the whole time. Put it up to a light and you can see carbonation bubbles rushing to the top. From start to finish this Tripel looks great!!

Very crisp aroma. Hints of orange peel, coriander, cloves, bread, and some sweetness from the alcohol.

A fruity tartness hits the tongue at first. Tart like a fresh orange. After that hings of cloves, bread, yeast, and an almost sugar like sweetness. But, this ale has a great balance because the yeast and the grains just pull through.

Light body made refreshing and crisp from the carbonation. At 9% abv they do a very good job at hiding this because is a very very! drinkable Tripel. Probably one of the best damn Tripel ales I have tasted.

Hands down you must try this Ale and now it is easy to find (at least in my state). Can I have some more?

4.1/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured into perfect pint glass. Best before date of 3/8/14

A - Deep straw golden color. Pours a big off-white head with medium sized bubbles that receed to a nice cap of foam.

S - Has a great lemon zest smell to it. Some quieter spicy phonolic notes. Mild candy sweetness. The alcohol becomes aparent after the beer warms.

T - A little bit of lemon citrus comes across right away but begins to be sugary sweet. Finishes a little alcoholic but is hidden well throughout. Also a pretty dry finish.

M - Hits the heavy side of medium for body and has a nice prickly medium to high carbonation.

O - I enjoyed this beer alot. I tend to shy away from tripels, am usually not a fan but I have enjoyed this over other tripels I have had.

A: unfiltered creamy butter with hint of orange. 1 finger white head dissipated quickly.

S: Belgian yeast. No fruity esters. Slight banana.

T: Tastes like a really nice Belgian ale? Good. Alcohol is extremely hidden. Balanced.

M: Spot on and crisp finish. Cleanses palate but not spicy.

O: Great balanced hi octane Belgian style strong ale. Really well hidden booze makes this an easy drinker but will cloud judgements 3 times as fast.

4.38/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22 oz bottle, cork and cage, date code on bottle but undecipherable, purchased 7/2011 from a reputable bottle shop and well stored in temperature controlled conditions since.

Poured into a Duvel Tulip Signature Glass.

Pours a nice frothy one finger head, which slowly reduces to a thin cap which lasts.
Beautiful straw color, with very lively carbonation, small bubbles stream from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma first hits you with very refined and classy yeast, followed by some very light citrus and even fainter malt. After warming some orange peel and coriander come forward. While very enjoyable the smell could use a little more intensity.

Crisp delicious entry on the palate of yeast and toasty malt. Very refined, elegant flavors that remind one of champagne. Orange peel and banana flavors and a slight hoppyness develop as this ale warms. Medium full mouth feel with a wonderfully refreshing carbonation.

Good finish of citrus, yeast, and light hop/malt.

This is undeniably delicious ale, but after having their Trois Pistoles which blew me away, this leaves me a little underwhelmed.
That being said this is an excellent Triple, with very refined aromas and flavors. Excellent balance and skillfully brewed. The 9% ABV is never even remotely noticeable.
