Somewhat heavy mouthfeel, not as light as I remembered it - might have been something about me drinking it straight out of the bottle.

The head was a bit more diffuse than I remember it, but was fairly durable, especially considering that it came out of a bottle. Color was a deep golden, fairly translucent.

This is a beer that I'll always enjoy, but it's a bit too heavy for me. Given its similarity to a hefeweizen, I'd probably grab a Weihenstephaner instead. That isn't much of a knock, since the other is one of my favorites, but as the former is widely available, it does mean I won't buy this often going forward.

A- Hazy gold. Pours out with a thick head even with a slow pour, but it subsides and a hint of foam lingers afterwards
S- Sweet fruits and a full blast of Belgian yeast; slight hint of alcohol
T- Strikes the perfect balance of sweet and bitterness. Other tripels I've had have been a bit too bitter for my taste, but this sublime beer finds that sacred balance.
M- medium, appropriate carbonation; slightly sticky - the taste lingers nicely
O- Easily in my top 3 beers; Unibroue sure knows what they're doing!

A-cloudy opaque gold with a foamy white head; good retention and lacing

S-fruity esters abound. Banana and yeast are strong

T-marches hand in hand with the aroma's dominant characteristics

M- thinner but it holds up well to the strong flavors. A slight bubble on the tongue

O-a truly delicious Belgian-style Tripel

Good Belgian Tripel that exudes the belgian yeast flavor and aroma.

A: A nice orange color with a solids 1 1/2 finger head.

S: A sweet and yeasty aroma that is indicative of the Belgian style.

T: A sweet well balanced Tripel with the presence of well proportioned spice notes.

M: Good mouth feel with a nice level of carbonation .

Overall: A well conceived Tripel. Not my typical type of beer, but a nice change of pace, and very enjoyable.

12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip glass.

A- Hazy golden-orange color, big and fluffy white-colored head. Minimal lacing. Carbonation bubbles rise, yeast sediment settles. Attractive.

S- Light fruits and spices, peppery and floral. The sweet and sour funky yeast aroma is direct from Belgium, per se. It's complex and powerfully aromatic.

T- Banana, pear, tart fruit and yeast flavors. Some spices, clove, sugary too.

M-Tingly and tart. Medium body and carbonation. Sour with a candied finish.

O- A lot of beers deliver 9.0 abv, this one completes the formula with the looks, aromas, and flavors of a true Tripel.
