look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - 4.5/5
A beautiful hazy golden orange, with loads and loads of off-white foam.

Smell - 4/5
Belgian yeastiness and spices, as typical in a tripel. Perhaps a hint of banana.

Taste - 4.5/5
Yeasty and spicy, tastes thoroughly belgian. Some fruitiness. Only slight to moderate sweetness. Delicious take on the belgian tripel style.

Mouthfeel - 4.5/5
Moderate amount of high-intensity carbonation. I love the prickly sensation as the beer moves through my mouth and down my throat. Very crisp. Medium-full body.

Overall - 4.25/5
This was a pretty great beer. Don't know if I can recommend it enough.

My taste buds don't agree with most. Decent beer, but not high on my list.

Fantastic Belgian style beer that really tastes like the classic Belgians. Reminded me of a smoother version of Gulden Draak. Some fruit flavors. Bold with some interesting spicing but very drinkable almost TOO drinkable, this stuff would be dangerous on tap. Love love loved it.

BBD 10/1/17. Pours a hazy gold with a touch of amber. World class head volume and retention, outstanding lacing.

Classic tripel nose with a bit of clove and subtle sweet fruit notes.

Medium body with a bit of creaminess. Nicely carbonated with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly rush in the finish.

The flavor profile is intense, somewhat complex and somewhat balanced. It begins with some fruit flavors that are quickly overcome by phenolic clove. Phenolic clove dominates from almost the start. The middle brings a bit of malt sweetness but never achieves balance. The somewhat dry finish has a medicinal clove characteristic that lingers. Alcohol also shows a bit of astringency as an aftertaste as it warms.

Wonderfully fresh and easy to drink

Look - fantastic white head that sticks around, golden and rich cloudy color

Smell - Flowery, citrus, grapefruity, very refreshing

Taste - reminds me of a pinot grigio, grapefruity, crisp flavor that goes down well

Feel - An unpretentious bite from the carbonation gives way to a smooth cool aftertaste.

Straw in color. The nose is mildly funky. The flavor is even more funky and accompanied by a perfumey essence, as well.

I didn't have a best by date on this bottle so I not sure how old the ale was when I bought it. Smelled of fresh bread when opened and it had nice carbonation but little or no head. Excellent flavor of bread and yeast and a nice amount of carbonation on my palate. I would like to try it again to see if the offering varies.

Funny thing about this beer is the more I drank it, the less I liked it. Left a bitter aftertaste. I'll stick to Maudite.

Like triples but don't love them but this is very good. Well put together where the spice level is perfect. Very drinkable but a bit carbonated. Not my favorite style but I can appreciate this beer.

Poured into a tulip beer glass a hazy tangerine-golden color. I poured it quickly into the glass and a large lacy head was created, but the big lacy head dissipated quickly. The effervescence though was strong and throughout the drink there was a stream of bubbles rising to the top. The aroma is very gentle. It has a gentle clover fragrance. It is like setting out a blanket in a park in a field of clover, but you have to stretch your head beyond the blanket to smell the fragrance of the clover flower. The beer has a slight pear and small orangy tinge of taste. The end of the taste though with each sip is spicy, but balanced to the touch. This is an excellent Belgium Tripel and reminds me a great deal of Delirium Tremens, which is saying a lot and says how good this beer is. This Quebec, near Montreal brewery, does it right. Enjoy this quality Belgium Tripel category beer.

I am not a fan of craft beer, and hearing that this was from North America concerned me. This beer surpassed my expectations. It does an exceedingly great job of meeting or beating many Belgian breweries.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a chalice.

A - Poured a murky golden orange, big, crispy head.

S - Spicy esters, banana, and a bit of straw.

T - Very sweet notes of tropical berries and tart fruit dominate from the front, with a light, almost oat-y maltiness. The sweetness fades into a residual spiciness.

M - Medium-light body, crisp carbonation.

O - The flavors are few, but are very pronounced and speak well in the beer.
