A: Translucent yellow with orange hues. Beautiful.

S: Bready sweetness with slight fruits

T: More of the same, literally. An exponentially sweet and bready taste. Amazing.

M: Gives every other tripel a run for its money. A shining star.

O: Perhaps my favorite beer brewed. A perfect balance of every criteria.

Pours light blond with four or five fingers light fluffy head.

Smells light and citrusy, think it comes from the yeast.

Taste is very smooth, very refreshing. Orange peel. Very well done triple.

Re review on tap at bottleworks clear blond big head, smell hoppy fluffy belgium flavors.

Taste sharper, banana and clove and gum.

Think it might be a bit different on tap.

Special brewers reserve bottle using spirals of oak from the 17 Grand Reserve.

Darker than the regular, hazy, smell tart bitter oak fruit and honey.

Taste carbonated, herbal, sweet oak, caramel, soft yeast, spice, pretty awesome stuff.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Westvleteren XII trappist glass
From: Trader Joe’s in Goleta, Calif.
Price: $8.99 for a variety 4-pack
Purchased: July 5, 2013
Consumed: July 6, 2013
Misc.: Best before Jan. 31, 2016; Foil wrap on bottle cap

Poured an orange golden hazy color with 1-2 fingers of off-white head. Good uneven foamy lacing along the sides. Great retention all the way down.

Smelled orange rind, cloves, green apples, grapes, kiwi and faint bananas. Also unknown Belgian spices.

Tasted similar to smell. Cloves, green apples, nutmeg, sweet grapes, other sweet fruits and lemon grass. I did not do this explanation justice.

Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long, smooth, crisp finish. Just goes down well.

Just so good. I’m 2-for-2 (thank you Trader Joe’s) on this variety pack so far. Once again, just so good.

Appearance: Beautiful golden color with orange-red hues. Nice tall, persistent head. Looks delicious.

Smell: Smells a little dank, sweet, maybe a little grassy. Not incredible, but it's pleasant.

Taste: Tastes very smooth and almost neutral at first, then sweet, then bready? Very smooth throughout, well-balanced and delicious. I think I'm missing something, though.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, pretty light, full, pretty perfectly carbonated.

Overall: Pretty good, I definitely enjoy it. But I think I'm missing a bit of the "wow" factor.
