3.68/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Delirium tulip.

A - Poured into my Delirium Tremens tulip in the typical Belgian way; slight angle for a few seconds then straight down the middle and raising the bottle to get a really fantastic head. Overall it looked like a great beer. A dark gold, deeply burnt amber color, a bit cloudy, but overall transparent enough to see the torrent of carbonation rushing to the top. Built a huge, foamy, 3.5-finger head that gradually descends until it just barely coats the top of the beer. Moderate lacing; I was expecting a bit more but can't fault it much due to the high ABV.

S - Smell is very fruity. A bit more than I anticipated but it's not unwelcome. Mainly noses of apple, pears, and grapes with a glancing presence of alcohol in the back. Very light and balanced, but not overly complex.

T - I have the same opinion about the taste for this one. It's a solid beer that features sweet apples and grapes mixed with the malt up front. The alcohol sneaks up in the aftertaste, as it's hidden well when the beer is in your mouth, but afterward it takes the forefront. But like the nose, it's not very complex and I'm left wanting something a little more.

M - Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Crisp, but not as dry as I'm accustomed to, but in a way it works for this beer as there is already a presence of alcohol in the aftertaste that I believe the dryness would only exacerbate.

D - Drinkability is moderate. While the nose and taste aren't exactly leading the pack, it certainly is easy to drink and the alcohol at the end serves as an excuse to go in for another sip and indulge in the fruity, sweet goodness.

3.21/5  rDev -17.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Caution, this is my first Tripel. (Thanks Dean.) It was wonderful to try, and the complexity was fun to taste. Break this out for your beer snob friends to impress them.

Appearance - a nice orange shade brew

Smell - Fruity, citrus

Taste & Mouthfeel - very complex fruity ale flavor up front. Enough carbonation. Oddly, the citrus and high ABV reminded me of cough syrup for just an instant, but that quickly passed. There was quite a warmth at the end and a clean finish.

It reminded me of a complex wine with new flavors every second.
