A - poured a translucent haze of gold with almost two fingers of large bubbled fizzy white head. Head dissipated somewhat quick to leave little bit of a collar. Good amount of legs, no lacing.

S - aroma is very yeast forward with a nice peppery bouquet of Esther's with lots of fruit notes, mostly banana with some apple. Slight medicinally and sweet. Not too much alcohol but is present.

T - taste is just amazing, for a triple it is really sweet opposite of the supper attenuated versions I'm used to, not a bad thing... Tastes sort of like an imperial Saison without all the dryness I expected. Lots of fruity notes, mostly banana throughout. Ends in a nice quenching bitter, can't stop going back for more.

M - surprisingly crushable for the abv, this does not want me to sip it, I should have poured it in a pint glass... Drinks like a refreshing Saison or the like.

O - I think this is great, it is different from what I would expect in a triple, being hazy and more on the sweet side, but that by no means takes away from how great this is. It has a great complex fruity Belgian yeast character and is very refreshing. I had this first probably 9 or so years ago when I first started getting into craft, and didn't like it then.... Now this has got to be one if not my favorite triples.

Very smooth. Hard to believe that it is 9% ABV. Nice fruity (pear) flavour. I would buy again.

Had this in a bottle and really enjoyed it. I've been getting more into Belgians lately, and this Tripel was a strong representative of the style. Great balance and very well crafted. It's dangerous because it's 9% ABV but you don't feel the alcohol, so be careful! But do make sure you try this if you find it anywhere, because it's well worth it.

This is actually my second Belgian style beer I have ever had, so unfortunately I cannot really compare it to anything.

It's golden-orange with a white wispy head. It smells like champagne. Some funky, banana, and clove in the taste, all nicely balanced. This beer is chewy with fine dense carbonation.

Overall, I liked the MadElf (my first ever full Belgian style beer) better, but I can imagine why this is rated higher. It is well-made and well-balanced. I have opened up a whole new beer chapter.
