12oz->Unibroue Tulip

A ~ Pours a gorgeous translucent Pumpkin. Creamy lacing and retention. Lively carbonatin with tiny bubbles (characteristic of Unibroue's Belgians)

S ~ Sweet dose of sugar, preserved peaches, clove, citrus, house yeast. Phenolic.

T ~ House yeast follows through...Pineapple rings, maraschino cherries, nectarine & pomander make up the fruit-filled body.
Touch of jam mango & cinnamon-like spice-note that (for a second) reminds me of a candied apple. Grass & hay on the back of the throat.

M ~ Soft yet lively carbonation that creates balance amongst the complex fruit notes. Full in flavor with a crisp finish.

D ~ A classic in my/anyone's book. (One of) My go-to Tripels. Very easy to drink and even easier to share. Recommended.

Prosit!

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.

750ml , best before 02/23/09, poured into pint glass with a nice rocky head, good lacing. A cloudy yellow.

Smell is grassy, some citrus notes.

This beer has a nice yeast/bready sweet taste that yields to a mild understated hop bite.

Medium mouthfeel, nice crisp carbonation.

Drinkability of this beer is good, I'll probably finish this 750ml without to much trouble.

This is one of my favorite beers, and now that it's readily available in Manitoba, I'm Laughing.

Pours a hazy, relatively opaque golden colour with a highly carbonated head that subsides to a thin lace, smell is alternately warm and inviting and light and airy...very Belgian. The taste is of coriander and spice, mildly citrussy, also wheaty, and very complex. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated but the alcohol is so well hidden that it goes down awfully smooth, deceptively so. The only reason that the drinkability goes down IS the high alcohol, which prevents me from pounding these back. The price is also a setback, but what can you do for such a high-quality beer. The best beer brewed in Canada in my opinion, but I can't say I've drank all of them either. Very highly recommended!

After One Year: Head retains a little less after a bit of time, but the lacing stays. Aroma hasn't changed much, still very spicy, fruity and yeasty, but with a bit more of that oily orange peel bitterness. Taste is a little drier, a little yeastier. The flavours are melding into a more glorious whole and losing a bit of their distinctiveness, but that's not a bad thing. I'll come back to this in a another year.

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

A - Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter at 45 degrees; a beautiful cloudy orangish/peach with a quickly-dissipating foamy head. A color I haven't really seen before.

S - Spiced alcohol is the background for a malty apricot/orange aroma.

T - Wonderful start of apricot and spice (ginger, cloves, maybe some cinnamon) eventually leads to a floral banana taste; finally finishes strong with a very warming alcohol and spice feel. Complex blend of flavor but it comes together very nicely - alcohol doesn't dominate the taste.

M - Exceptional warming, alcohol feel with a nice bubbly kick.

D - I wouldn't want to drink more than one at a time - not because of the alcohol, but because I wouldn't want to ruin the moment. Extremely drinkable and a complex taste lead to one of my favorite yearround brews.
