4.25/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bought a bottle, poured into a goblet glass

appearance: dirty blond, the appearance of blue moon comes to mind. Not much head, which dissipated quickly anyways

Smell: meh... average smell. smells citrousy, kinda sour. As it warmed up (20 minutes later), aroma finally came out.

Taste: this is actually where I like this beer a lot. Very complex flavor that is beyond my command of words (or my knowledge of beer). Citrousy, tart, light fruits, almost white wine to champagne like. The taste of yeast is very apparent. no maltiness or hops noted initially, but later becomes very apparent.

Mouthfeel: goes down easily, palatable. stickiness like a hefeweizen due to its yeast content. no strong alcoholic or metallic overtones noted.

Overall: very flavorful beverage, but i feel that it did not quite match my expectations (probably because I was unrealistically expected too much). I would try it again.

First impressions: Very, very good, a tart/sour belgian, lots of carbonation, and a heavy yeast flavor. As I get in a little deeper some more subtleties come out, some good and some detrimental. Pours a hazy gold, with a thick head that quickly dissipates to wet lacing. There is a lot of really great flavors to pick out in the nose: orange, lemon, banana, clove, coriander, some yeast and sour apples. Taste is similar, but with a huge bread and yeast presence, with a touch of honey. Lots of carbonation, but leaves your mouth a bit dry.

Admittedly, tripels are not my expertise, so as far as true to form I can't really comment. It was very enjoyable, and there were many fantastic nuances to pick out and examine. Another great brew from Unibroue.
