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.

Darkish straw color, a bit hazy/cloudy. Pours a nice head with a tremendous amount of bubbles that never stop.

Has a spicy smell of cloves mixed in with some fruits, apples and pears come to mind. The scent could pass for champagne.

While I can't pick up either apples or pears in the taste, I could pick up the tartness from the fruits. A bit of a peppery taste.

There's a real refreshing crispness to the beer. It tries to start off smooth, but with the spices and tart fruit, it ends with a bit of a bite that extends well into the swallow. A good drink year yound, but would be exceptional in the warmer months.

This is a good beer and it's easy to drink despite the spices, tartness, and the high alcohol that you'd never guess to be that high.

I drank this tripel out of my snifter at cellar temperature.

Upon pouring, a large three-finger, pure white cloud for a head and a slightly hazy, bright straw-gold color. Looks like a Belgian ale, all right.

An aroma of green apples, grapes, yeast, and earth. Some flowers in there too. Pleasant.

The flavor, to me, is straight-forward and simple, but also excellent. 'Tis the beer equivalent of a perfect loaf of white bread, that basic food which is so taken for granted despite its necessity. Long into the finish, I also get a little taste of white wine.

It feels like a Belgian ale. What did you expect from a tripel? Bubbly.

Very nice. Nice enough that I'd drink this one anytime.
