The color on this beer is fantastic, but I'm a little turned off by the humongous head on it. While you're waiting for that to settle, you can pretty much smell this beer from across the room, as the spicy and citrusy aroma is very strong. The taste is, as you would expect from the smell, spicy and citrusy, but also much stronger than you would first expect. The complex tastes add to the feel of this brew, yet it lost points on drinkability because of my tendency to take small sips and savor each one.

A- Beautiful golden orange coloring with a huge head (I prefer to pour a little extra head and then let my beers sit for a minute so that the temperature can balance while there's still some head left)

S- Smells like an odd balance between a spicy scent and the distinct maltiness of the style.

T- Incredible! The malts give it a very interesting flavor. I would almost describe it as being vaguely nutty compared to other takes on it.

m- If my taste buds were ever stressed, then this beer would be their masseuse. The malts provide a wonderful soothing effect as it's held in the mouth.

D- While delicious, finishing one of these with a meal would be the most I could ask anyone.

If you consider price and availability there isn't a better tripel. The spice note in the aroma and follows into the taste is something special, almost peppery in the aftertaste,i don't get alot of fruit in this one although there is definitely a sweetness back there somewhere, hard to go wrong with Unibroue and this is their best.

A - I usually snub "appearance" as being an important factor in what makes a good beer. And perhaps it was after a few beers that I decided I loved the way this one looked, but I do. It has a wonderful dark, vibrant golden color.

S - The smell is great. It smells hoppier than it tastes, which is a bit off-putting, but generally strong with fruity undertones.

T - A wonderful combination of delicate and strong, complicated but not overly so. A hoppy yellow ale with strong notes of fruit and something I can't place. The end effect is particularly pleasing.

M - Good. Thinner than a stout, but thicker than a lager. Just a bit thicker than an October fest brew with a good amount of natural fiz.

O - Overall, great. This has been one of my favorite beers for years. While I don't think it is easy enough to be as popular to drink as Guiness, I think it has a perfectly balanced flavor, at least for my tastes.

Pours cloudy golden. 2 finger head that dissipated quickly but left some lacing

Smells of fermenting fruit

Tastes of fermenting fruit and sweet (way to sweet )more of a cider taste than beer for me.But definatley more flavorful than macro brew. High abv is hidden well.Slightly tinney taste. But smooth going down.

Very carbonated but in a good way.

Mouth feel is smooth flavour dissipated quickly.

Overall OK. Would not purchase again as it is not my style. I am a hop head this brew was too sweet and reminded me of fallen fruit off a tree which is fermenting. Still more interesting than macro. And the abv kept me entertained
