Nice cloudy golden hue pour. Fizzy head.

Smells yeasty. Prominent clove, coriander, and pepper.

Flavour pushes through of clove, coriander and pepper in the end. A mild bitterness. Bread and yeast more pronounced as beer comes up to room temperature.

Smooth, dry and crisp-medium carbonation. Flavours last.

Nothing to pick apart here. A really solid beer that can be enjoyed at anytime of year.

One of my favorite Belgian style beers, and by far my favorite that I've had from this brewery. Just now getting around to reviewing it, though.

A: Cloudy, rich yellow color. Head is maybe 1/2 a finger, and falls down to a thin layer relatively quickly.

S: Belgian yeast, Candy sweetness, stone fruits. Alcohol comes through as well, lending a richness of aroma. Amazing smelling beer.

T: Sweet malts hit up front with a slight ester fruitiness. The sweetness gives way to a slight bitter taste and a punch from the alcohol that keeps the beer from being cloying. Overall impression is that of a sweet beer that is wonderful balanced with the other elements.

M: Pretty heavy on the carbonation, medium bodied and slightly sticky.

O: As I said: One of my favorite Belgian style beers. Infinitely drinkable, it balances all the flavors nicely and not only keeps the 9% alcohol from overpowering the taste of the other elements, but actually incorporates it into the balance. Really a great beer, worth going well out of your way for.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into chalice

A: A cloudy, golden yellow orange with a tight white head that stays forever. Has awesome lacing that paints the glass all the way down.

S: Hops, fruit, definitely alcohol.

T: A yeasty hoppiness with pleasant sweetness from various fruits. Strong alcohol presence, but a nice balance.

M: The perfect carbonation, it almost feels like the liquid is non-existent in your mouth, all you can feel is the flavor.

D: Good for such a strong beer. The flavors are so good and combined with the excellent mouthfeel it's hard to put down.

Notes: A very nice tripel. Great appearance and a nice overall combination of flavors and aromas make this an very enticing beer. My first non-Belgian tripel and a very good one at that.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip glass

Appearance: Huge 3 finger pillowy looking head with excellent lacing. Bright vibrant yellowish orange hue with modest cloudiness. Very good looking.

Smells: Smells like apple juice, lemons and oranges mixed with bready yeast and corriander. Nice earthness and a good strong yeast aroma that is sweet.

Taste: Tastes amazingly clean and refreshing. Apple and pear notes with some spiciness and well rounded yeasty components. Clean crisp and hides the 9% abv like none other. Truely a perfect beer.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is spot on. Kept the head for the whole session. Light weight for its abv, yet it was extrememly balanced. Would have liked it a bit more viscous. After taste lasted a moderate amount of time.

Drinkability: Despite the high abv i could drink this all the time. perfect for all year round. Warms well too.

Pours a very hazy golden straw. Half an inch of white head that dissipated quickly.

Lots of yeasty, bready aromas that radiated up even while pouring up to my nose 18 inches away. On closer smelling, there's some very nice pear scents along with the yeasty phenols and the bready malt. Complex but simple at the same time.

Great, surprising sweet fruits in the taste. Light, crisp and bright but full of flavor. Lemon, apple, and pear sweetness along with some spice in the finish -- Not clove-y but similar. though cleaner. A clean bit of bitterness at the finish just to crisp up the palate. Certainly one of the 2 or 3 best Belgians brewed outside of Belgium that I have tasted.

Very light in the mouth and full of carbonation. This is an extremely easy to drink beer that could be dangerous given how easy it is to drink. An excellent beer. I'm not sure why my expectations were not high for this beer, buy boy, this did exceed them. Very nice beer.

12 oz bottle. In my opinion Unibroue is one of the top 10 breweries in North America. This beer is bears this out. It pours a very cloudy pale orange body. Cloudier, of course, if the yeast from the bottle is added, but I prefer the beer without the conditioning yeast. Fruity and yeasty aroma with lots of wheat, bubblegum, alcohol, and pepper. Intense fruity and alcoholic flavors over sweet malt, spices and yeast. Mouthfeel is full bodied and chewy in consistency. Intense fizzy classic Unibroue style carbonation. A very nice beer. The flavor and consistency is always high.

A: Cloudy yellow, solid lacing with 10% clarity. pours a healthy two finger head and reduces but sits for a while.
S: bread, ripe banana, coriander, unidentified sweetness
T: Coriander again on the profile with a processed sugar sweetness and musty belgium yeast that you would expect
M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel and carbonation
O: This is probably the best example of a true Belgium Tripel I have enjoyed. Nothing too bold or odd but if you are looking to try the pure profile this is your best bet.

Pale golden in color with a huge white head. Head stays fairly well. Excellent aroma that I'm taking great pleasure in. Black pepper spiciness, tart fruitiness, breadiness, and plain old yeast. Sure, it doesn't sound like much, but it certainly is a pleasure to sniff. And to drink...! Wow, I'm impressed. Sweetness and black pepper, odd combination? No way, it's great! Up front it's a little hoppy, then in the middle it gets to the sweet and peppery bit. Bready and a little yeasty as well, all the way through. Tangy citrus and fruitiness shows up at the back a bit more. Hop bitterness is really brought out in the finish, making it very crisp. Medium body. You'd never guess at the abv. Not a hint of it is detectable! A wonderful representation of the style, one of the best even. A wonderful beer in itself. It makes you think, what if the world was about to end? What would be your last beer? I'd say this wouldn't be a bad choice at all.

Pop goes the cork, and rush goes the foamy head out of the bottle. Pour it and then gaze in astonishment at the hazy golden brew. Enjoy the enormous whipped texture head that seems to rejuvenate itself after every sip. Smell the wonderfully citric, yeasty and spicy aroma. And then sip it. YUMM! Perfect mouthfeel and perfect carbonation. This beer is full of spiciness, yeastiness, fruitiness, sweetness, sweetness, twanginess(if that's a word), and some alcohol of course. 9% at that. And it's barely noticeable. Most definitely my favorite Unibroue offering. Go drink this beauty.

Pours a cloudy opaque orange with a smooth bubbly head.

The smell is delightful; apples, pears, bananas. Very fruity and aromatic.

Taste is like a sunny spring morning. Very crisp and fruity. Just like the smell; apples, pears and bananas. I really like this beer, it surpasses all of the high expectations I had going in due to all the praise it has received. Very worthy of the praise, best tripel out there.

Mouthfeel is exceptional. Light, crisp, refreshing and smooth. The feeling defies description.

Very drinkable beer. If you like Belgians, go buy this beer, simply amazing.
