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.

A- Slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a large off white head. Head is long lasting and leaves distinct rings of lace on the glass.

S- Sweet fruits, apple, clove, spice, floral and alcohol notes are present.

T- Sweet apple followed by a clove and pepper bite. Slight bitterness of hops follows and this finishes out with a warming sensation of the alcohol. Nicely balanced very complex in character and taste, lots of subtleness to this one.

M- Smooth and creamy. Medium in body and well carbonated. Finish has a little kick of the carbonation as well as a slight hop bite and dryness.

D- Way too drinkable for 9% ABV. Well balanced and well done.

Sip this not only for the subtle flavors but also out of respect for the potency.

3.8/5  rDev -12%

a: two fingers of bubbly long-lasting fluffy white head sits on a cloudy rust colored body; gorgeous

s: sweet sugar is the first to hit the nose followed by scents of pears and apples followed by spices and just a hint of alcohol

t: a lot dryer than i would have thought; raw wheat and grains is predominant followed by some cidery/vinegary fruit flavors; winter spices and alcohol round out the taste.

m: pretty creamy and a little syrupy with light carb

d: for me this is not the most flavorful tripel but still a very good offering with some interesting and complex flavors
