12 oz brown Unibroue style bottle. Foiled. Beautiful bottling and label is spot on with great styling as usual from the Canadian brewer. Poured this into a stemmed Belgian tulip. Somewhat of a thinner style tulip rather than the balloons I have.

A - yellowish straw golden with touch of bright orange. Body has some haze and cloud too it. A small amount of sediment floating within its bright colored body. Head was massive and fluffy and sat nicely atop this Canadian Belgian style ale.

S - orange fruitiness with clove, Belgian style spices, and pepper spice. Magnificent yeast aroma as usual from these guys. Very fresh bready with a character of freshly bailed hay. Pear and lighter fruit make up the last wafts in the nose.

T - very similar to the nose with a blast of peppery spices and lighter fruits. Orange creeps up from no where and goes hand in hand with clove and the Belgian style spices. Yeast characters taste as good as smells. Fresh all over with an awesome funkiness to it. Slight fruity esters in the finish with some more spices.

M - medium bodied and a truly great Tripel. Excellent texture and stays true to the style. 9% abv goes nearly unnoticed in the mouth as the alcohol takes a back seat to the incredible flavors. Complex yet still balances the feel nicely. A very enjoyable sipper.

O - IMO this is the best Tripel made outside of Belgium. We all know Belgium brewers produce some of the worlds best tripels, but this one compares to many of them. It's done in a traditional Tripel style and has the class to back it up. Unibroue aren't playing around with this brew and Its honestly a must have for just about anyone. A great big abv brew for warmer weather for sure.

I dove deep into the Triple scene. My first was the Westvleteren 12 that my dad sent me. From what I've heard, this was the closest readily available beer to that. I have since tried the Rochefort 6-10 and I will say that I'd take the 8 and 10 over this if I had to. The LFDM has a perfect smell (once you get past the mile high fizzy head) and its initial taste is spot on. However, this beer took my breath away from the pure alcohol finish. Still a great beer but not what I was expecting

12-oz bottle to tulip, best by 4-2015

A: golden straw color, massive off white head, with large irregular bubbles on the surface, recedes to a thin ring on the edge to the end
S: spicy yeast, clove, light banana, pear, light bubblegum
T: very little going on, nothing extraordinary. sweet malt, spice (clove, pepper), alcohol

this is similar to Westmalle's Tripel, though less astringent . . . good drink for a 90-degree Chicago night
