4.5/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out of a 750ml bottle into a chalice. Served cool.

Pours a hazy dark yellow body and a very thick white head. Take your time on the pour, it's worth it.

The smell is outstanding. Clove, lemon, all sorts of herbs, light candy. Tastes like it smells. Not boozy at all for a tripel.

Carbonation is pretty high if you are impatient in drinking it.Take your time and you will see why the beer scores so high. The flavors are layered, never over the top and keeps you wanting more.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz. into a tulip.

Pours a hazy yellow with a bleach white head, some light orange hues are noticable the longer I look. Oh how I love the smell of a Tripel! Apple, pear, clove, black pepper, yeast, and booze. Getting some earthy tones off the first sip, that black pepper is back also. This beer definitely doesn't hide the fact that it's 9%. This beer is smooth at first, but i'm not digging the carbonation on the way down. Overall a very very solid Tripel, but I've had better.

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

Poured from a 26.4oz bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours a beautiful glowing hazy gold with a huge head of fine, white foam. Great retention.

S: Pungent soapy yeast, bright pale malt sweetness, poached pear, juicy nectarine, little bit of pineapple. A hint of horseblanket.

T: Sugary blanket of soft, yeasty esters. Vanilla bean, golden raisin, angel cake, white peach, cloves, coriander. Spicy phenols give way to some subtle yeasty funk. A little metallic in the finish, with a breath of fresh pale malt, spices, and a little alcohol.

M: Almost thick-bodied, creamy.

O: Incredibly smooth, complex, and balanced. It should be hard to find a better tripel.

4.4/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden yellow with about a finger width of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles present.

Smell - Yeast, banana, clove, spices, hint of lemon, slightly grassy.

Taste - The banana and clove flavours stand out, followed by some spiciness. Leaves a hint of clove on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with lots of good carbonation. Slight fluffiness to this body.

Overall - Good representation of a tripel by Unibroue. I like that the fruity banana/clove flavours did not overpower the entire beer. One of my favourites to come back to from Unibroue.
