4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy golden body with a firm 2 fingers of foam. Solid retention with minimal lacing.

S - Thick yeasty aromas. Banana, Belgian candi, golden raisins, pears, citrus and floral hops. A touch of basement dust as it warms.

T - Banana, pears, clove, lemon grass, white pepper. Wheaty malt holds strong before drying out on the finish. Mild hops provide a spicy grass character

M - Creamy, full but light body with perfect carbonation.

One of my favorite Tripels. The wheat-like malt effortlessly blends with the yeast esters and spice to create a smooth easy drinking beer.

not that this beer needs more good press, but it is quite representative of the style. golden colored tripel with noticeable Belgian yeasty esters on the nose. mouthfeel is light, with a touch of creaminess on the end. lots of fruit qualities waft up when the beer is consumed and seem to linger in its long finish.

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

A - Cloudy golden yellow appearance. Lots of bubbly head formed quickly and dissipated slowly to a thin white layer

S - Yeasty and sweet malt smells. Caramel malt and sugars with hints of citrus hops/orange peel.

T - Sweet sugary taste with bits of citrus flavor and just a bit of alcohol. Bready yeast flavor - biscuity finish. Very inviting sweetness of the added malt is well balanced with just enough hops and the yeast. Covers up the high ABV well.

M - Smooth and easy to drink with only moderate carbonation

O - Excellent beer and a treat to enjoy. A great Tripel. The sweetness and bready flavors are outstanding and well balanced. The high ABV is only noticeable after finishing your second glass! Would highly recommend

3.23/5  rDev -25.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: It is a very foggy light yellow with no head when poured.

S: Very fruity. There are aromas of banana, citrus, and lemon. Very strong aroma.

T: Just ok. The aromas mentioned above carry over into the very bold taste.

M: Very very fizzy. The beer is watery.

O: The only reason I bought this was because it was on the top 100 and I wanted to try a tripple. I was not impressed and I am surprised it was on the list to begin with.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Beautiful hazy orange with lots of swirling carbonation bubbles and a thick white head.

S: Sweet, yeast, fruity. Slight cloves hint. Can't exactly put my finger on the fruit, perhaps banana?

T: Yeasty into a malty banana bread type flavor with a spice finish.

M: Very refreshing the high amounts of carbonation make this beer a real refreshing drink.

O: There's a reason why this is cult status at this point. Very easy to drink and well made.

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

Enjoyed this 12oz silver foil topped bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a very hazy orange hue with a HUGE, 4-finger, white, frothy head that lasts forever! Great trail all the way down the glass and ends in a persistent solid lace. Brew fizzes with every sip

S: Strong Belgian sweet candi smell followed yeast aroma with hints of fruits and phenols.

T: Sweet smooth brew at first taste followed by a heavy malt and alcohol warth that transcends the whole body. Hints of spicy cloves and yeast in the background and finishes slightly sweet.

M: Very strong and boozy. Heavy body and heavy carbonation.

O: Wow – this brew kicks some ass. Definitely a sipper at 9% abv

3.98/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden yellow with clouds of yeast floating around. There's 1/2" of soft, foamy, soap-bubble-like head with decent retention. The nose has notes of coriander, wheat, apples, straw, and a hint of lemon. The taste is orange peel, coriander, faint lemon, alcohol phenols, and faint red apples. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, warm, and well carbonated.

This is a well balanced, rather complicated tripel. The flavors mesh well though the coriander can be overwhelming at times. Overall, though this is a great example of the style.

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

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a goblet, best before 2-8-14 date on the back. This pours a nice hazy light golden color with a decent white head which quickly dissipates. Smells of cloves, banana, coriander, malts, very nice. Feel is medium with high carbonation. The tastes are many of the same spices and malts with a nice dry finish, this beer is excellent and meets expectations.

4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle served in a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow with a large white head. The head resides fairly quickly and there is not much lacing left behind.

Smell: A wonderful mix of sweet and spicy. The aroma has a strong malt background with a slight hint of fruitiness such as grape and citrus. The finish is slightly spicy.

Taste: The taste is similar to the aroma with a wonderfully complex malt underpinning with a lovely wave of fruity overtones such as mango and citrus. Everything is perfectly balanced with a finish full of clove spiciness and a warming alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel with a good level of carbonation. Very well attenuated. Super easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Overall: A wonderful beer. Flavorful, complex, easy to drink. It doesn't get much better than this.

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

Appears a natural hazed golden with quickly dissipating white head.

Smells like fruity belgian yeast, white grapes, apples, citrus, some grains.

After a very welcome initial spiciness the flavor emerges as a slightly darker fruit than the nose, with white grape, apple, citrus, berries, tropicals. Lots going on here. A great flavorful beer.

Mouthfeel is superb. Great level of spice, perfect carbonation, medium body.

Overall a delicious beer.

Personally my favorite beer. Hence the straight 5.0 rating. It looks right, smells rights and tastes right. It has a wonderfully complex flavor that no other beer I have ever tried has lived up to. They all seem to simple in comparison.

I always have a stash of 750ml bottles around for consumption.

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

Cloudy orange body with a tight large white head. Excellent lacing on this guy.

Candi sugar sweet aroma. Tropical fruit papaya, mango. Nice clove and pepper to complement the sweeter aroma.

Banana mango clove estery fruity combo hits the tongue nicely with a good complex flavor profile. Finishes dry with a residual alcohol twang.

Phenomenal beer full of flavor. Large chewy full carbonated body. My perfect non-stout morning beer with to sit around and be lazy watching college football/basketball (go jayhawks)

4.18/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance – A blonde amber color. Good head that stays with the beer. Champaign style bubbles.

Smell – Cider, spice, malt, citrus, and a touch of honey.

Taste – The smells above also describe the taste.

Mouthfeel – Medium body with good carbonation. Dry finish. The 9.0% a.b.v. is well hidden.

Drinkability – This is a good beer, but as far as tripels go, it’s not one of my favorites. Too cidery for me.

You will love the look, taste and feel of this beer! I gave it to friend of mine and I thought he was going to leave his wife!
With an almost zen-like golden amber color, this crisp and strong beer goes great with pizza, steak, a concert, a wedding anniversary or your favorite team opening up a can of whoop-ass on a rival.

Tastes great on a warm day and represents the best of North America. Uhhh, can you tell I dig this brew?
Thank you, Canada!

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

Golden, tinting yellow beer, with creamy white head.

Sweet yeast aroma with banana and pineapple. All blends well into a nice sweetness.

Sweet taste too. A very well blended mix of bread, banana, even peach. A bit more carbonated than I like for a tripel. But overall an excellent example of the style.
