Very coarse, foamy head. Brownish-yellow and hazy with some chunks that accidentally got poured. Lively, almost painful carbonation cause quite a row in the mouth. Once the beer had sat for 15minutes or so the bubbles because manageable. Spicy yeast give the beer most of its character. Good pale malt presence to spar with the yeast and hops. A good beer, but not one of my favorites from these guys. IMHO it’s way over-hyped.

Bought a 4 pk of bottles from Wegmans Holt Rd on 3/23/13. price $ 10.99.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a St Bernardus chalice, served around 50 f.

appearance: hazy lemon yellow with a 1 finger sugar white head. not much lacing.

aroma: sugar cookies with lemon glaze.

mouthfeel: full, solid but a little lifeless.

taste: crystal malt with lemon zest that provides the flavor and the bitterness.

notes: Mt first Unibroue bottle and I must say I am a little disappointed. Simple taste, not bad but lacking complexity of some Tripels.

Drank from a snifter. Brilliant cloudy gold after the pour, with a soft head which quickly dissipated.

Smelled fantastic. Sweet, fruity (not too overbearing), grassy.

The taste didn't seem like it aligned with the smell. The yeast stands out, but I was expecting more of the spicy/fruityness to come through.

It had a good mouthfeel - medium, carbonated. I am by no means a trippel connoisseur, but it was a good experience and I would definitely partake in it again.

12 oz. bottle poured into an Allagash chalice. Bottled late 2011.

A - Pours a hazy gold with three fingers of dense white head. A violent display of carbonation continues throughout, long after I pour. The lacing is tiered perfection.

S - Big aroma of peppery citrus, banana, cloves, grassy hops, and loads of not-quite-funky yeast. Perfection for the style.

T - The flavor is sweeter than the nose indicated. Starts slightly tart with apple and pear and transitions to sugar/bready malts. Bubblegum sweetness on the back end with a spicy clove finish. As is typical within this style, the high ABV is very well hidden.

M - High carbonation is no surprise based on the appearance. Medium bodied. The carbonation is great to begin with, but the beer flattens out quickly. Maybe I drank too slowly.

O - This was one of those perpetually available, phenomenal beers that I pass up on every time at the store because it will always be there anyway. I decided to grab a single during a recent haul, and I was not disappointed. The aroma is amazing and the flavor is good, although I found it to be a little bit too sugary sweet at some points. Not one I get regularly, but certainly a benchmark for the style.

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

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: Golden hue with a 1 finger white fizzy head. Lots of visible carbonation

S: Wheat, belgian yeast, spice and candied sugar

T: Belgian yeast, some tropical fruit (mostly banana). Spice, sugar. Kinda like a hefeweizen but not as dry or clovey. Slightly sweet, dry finish

M: Medium bodied. Crisp, clean and dry. There is a lingering sweetness. Nicely carbonated

D: Very easy to drink, no real indication that this is 9%. Definitely a regular go to beer for me

750 mL bottle best by 10/07/13

A - Light yellow amber with a two finger white head. Good lacing. Slightly cloudy.

S - Sweet and yeasty. A bit spicy. Plenty of sugary notes.

T - Sweet and spicy. Little bit of alcohol. A bit medicinal, with a touch of fermented banana.

M - Light body, lots of carbonation. Surprisingly not cloying.

O - Just brilliant. Sweet, complex, and refreshing with well-hidden booze.
