What a beer. This is my second Unibroue and I must say that I am highly impressed. Bottle-condition.

This elixir of the gods poured cloudy with orange and lemon hues. Strong head that lasted, expelling a bouquet of sweetness and floral. I know that is the standard "quote-unquote", but hell, I was inebriated!

A revelation for my taste buds. Unbelievable!

app - a bit cloudy as may have poured a little aggressively. Modest white head that dispersed fairly quickly (as most high alcohol brews do).

smell - Slightly sweet, and generally quite clean. Certainly no hop.

Taste - very subtle fruity sweetness upfront, and then the Belgian yeast notes kick in with a subtle pepper note. Alcohol is well hidden in the flavor here. Finishes quite clean and dry, well in line with the style.

MF - Med body, medium carbonation. Minimal alcohol warming. No astringency.

D'ability - A really clean tripel, with enough complexity to give it an attraction beyond the 9% ABV.

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.

Pours a hazy golden color with only a thin white ring and not much in the way of lacing.

Aroma immediately hits with fruity notes of banana, apricot and some pear. Yeast is detected and some cloves also come through clean in the front.

Taste reveals lots of fruit and spice. Notes of banana and orange with hints of pepper and cloves in the background. The initial sweetness is quickly balanced out by the spiciness.

Medium body with lots of carbonation. Alcohol appears to be well-hidden for the most part. Cool and refreshing, well worth having a few more around.

Tried this at a restaurant. Served in the 12 oz bottle. No date on the bottle. 9% ABV. Poured into an over-sized wine glass. Appearance is a cloudy orange color, with tall head consisting of tiny bubbles. Great retention. Smells crisp and clean - citrus, pine, yeasty. Tastes of orange, yeasty, a bit bready, grapefruit, lemon, slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is fizzy all the way. Excellent sippable beer with dinner. Wonderfully fresh and sweet character.

A: Hazy yellow color with a rather big ivory-colored head that stays on for a while and leaves a nice lid of lacings.

S: A fine-tuned smell, complex with every piece at its place. Some gentle clove-like spices mix with pleasant fruit aromas of mostly tangerines and lemon peel. The wheat and fragile malts provide a nice clean background. Quite a lot of phenols and some alcohol. When tripels showcase smells like this, they are really great. Clean, refreshing and complex. Well balanced. (As a note, you could almost feel the gas in the nose from the carbonation in this one).

T: Gentle spices (mostly cloves) and fruit esters of tangerine, pear and lemon peel lead the way to a nice semi-sharp malt and wheat character. It's a kind of sweet taste, but the spices act as a good counterweight. Bread crumbs, grass and a mild taste of earthy yeast. The wheat gets a little more pronounced towards the end, resulting in that semi-tart taste sometimes noticeable in wheaty beers. The finish holds some notes of herbal alcohol, phenols, a gentle spicy hop bite and bitterness and lingering fruity notes. In general, a complex and well balanced taste.

M: Moderate body, nice slick mouthfeel with a generous amount of lively carbonation.

D: Tripels are probably my least favorite style of the high ABV Belgian styles, but I think I can go as far as saying that this is one of the best tripels I've ever had. Complex and balanced, yet with plenty of that Belgian edginess. This one is really easy to drink, but deserves to be sipped and savored at a gentle pace.

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.
