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

750ml corked and caged pours into my chalice a golden yellow with 3+ fingers of head that slowly fades to a light lacing on top.

Smell is bold fruit esters that define the style, hints of breadiness.

Taste is bold and fresh. Lots of esters in play; apples, strawberries, lemons, some spiciness, hint of alcohol in the back of the mouth along with a faint herbaceous quality. Light grains throughout. Really strong example of the style.

I can't help but feel that there are a number of these tripels and Belgian pales that are slightly over carbonated for my liking, while others like Brooklyn 1 seem to nail it. Fin du Monde is well carbonated and on the edge of falling into that over carbonated group for me.

On a side note, this beer pairs quite well with cigars.

Really, a top quality beer with only a few quibbles that keep it from matching up to my all time favorites.

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

12 oz bottle poured into a oversized wine glass.

This beer poured a huge 3 finger head without effort. Half the head popped out of the top of the glass and held tight. Beer was a hazy golden with orange hues.

Smell was of Belgian yeast of course. Crisp and lemony with earthy tones. Alcohol comes through as it warms.

Taste is also lemony, tangy, bready, grainy, and a light apple taste.

This is a nice foamy smooth beer in the mouth. Goes down way too easy for it's 9% ABV. This is an outstanding beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer pours a golden color with a huge thick white head that settles down quickly into a manageable size. This beer is highly carbonated like champagne and leaves belgian lace on the side of my glass. Aroma is malty sweet with plenty of fruitty esters and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is fruitty and spicy, clove with a hint of banana. Malt flavor is there in the taste and also a bit of hops to balance the bitterness. I wonder if this beer is spiced or if it is all from the yeast. Nice mouthfeel but a little to carbonated for my liking, however, once the beer breathes for awhile it dies down to a reasonable level. Good drinkability for the style and the abv but definately not a session beer.
