Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a pale yellow with a BIG head and alot of carbonation. Smell is sweet and spicy. Taste includes a mixture of spices and some fruit. This beer had way too much carbonation for me to thoroughly enjoy. Made me burp after every sip. Still, a good tripel.

Poured into snifter this beer a bit hazy, golden straw color with a moderate white head that quickly diminished into a thin skim. The aroma is a wonderfully inviting complex mix of spicy phenols, banana, bubble gum, and sweetness. The flavor is much like the nose, delivered with a firm prick of carbonation. A mix of spicy, peppery phenols and fruity esters, the beer finishes dry and flavor lingers nicely. The body is medium and carbonation appropriately high. Overall fantastic, enough said.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Pours a hazy yellow-orange. Definitely some sediment action going. About a 1-inch head that dissipated quickly. Some carbonation evident at the bottom. A lot of people are turned off by the appearance. Doesn't bother me.

S - Fruity smells, pineapple comes to mind. Barley and just a faint hint of booze.

T - Oustanding. Smooth yet powerful. Just a bit of hop action evident, with a fair amount of quality malt. Also taste the aforementioned pineapple and a bit of melon. A sort of pear taste evident after beer warmed up a few degrees. The 9% ABV is hidden well, but still able to be noticed.

M - Solid, nothing outta this world. Crisp with acceptable amount of carbonation. Not dry or bitter.

O - One of the best rated beers in the world for a reason. Strong and bold yet slightly sweet, and incredibly drinkable. Won't exactly strain my hamstring running to the store for more, but I definitely see this becoming a regular beer for me.

Poured into a Rochefort chalice.

A: Pours a golden honey color, as cloudy as a witbier. Thin off-white head (it's a chalice) with excellent retention and fine lace.

S: Spicy, fruity, sweet, yeasty malts. Pepper is the main spice, banana and pear in the fruit spectrum.

T: Pepper and cinnamon, citrusy (mellow orange) fruit, smidge of apricot, sweet malt. All the notes you expect in a tripel, in splendid balance. Long and lingering finish maintains the spice and sweetness together. Some soft minerals, as well as a slightly whipped cream flavor, tie the flavor and mouthfeel together.

M: On the light side of medium body, excellent carbonation gives a creamy and billowy mouthfeel. Suave.

O: Pure delight and joy. One of my favorite tripels, or favorites of any style for that matter. Ridiculously inexpensive for the quality of brew. Have been enjoying this for many years, and hope to have at least as many yet ahead.

Poured into a tulip glass, this exceptional brew comes out an orange ade color that is pretty cloudy. It is topped by a frothy white head, about 2 fingers high. The head retention and lacing is very good.

The aroma is of banana, apple and vanilla that is full on strong and aromatic. This ale has a very distinct and wonderful floral bouquet, to steal a description from some fine wines.

The flavor is an apple tartness and lingering hop spiciness. I detect some other fruits in there too, maybe raisins. The mouthfeel is bold, with a full body accompanied by very nice tartness and tanginess. There is some warming alcohol flavor toward the bottom of the glass and this one finishes strong.

bouteille brune de 750ml, bouchon de liège

belle bière blonde trouble, la mousse se dissipe rapidement mais elle est très belle, petit nez de levure, belle pointe épicée en bouche, belle longueur, l'alcool se fait sentir, moins épicé que la don de dieu, moins bonne aussi, je la préfère aussi.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a frothy white head, good retention and nice lacing.

Smells of sour yeast and banana. A fairly clean nose.

Taste is banana up front with a nice chewy bready malt middle. A very nice sting from the carbonation with some bitter spice notes - clove. An excellent beer, maybe not a lot going on, but the few notes are played excellently and come together in a beautiful harmony of flavor.
