4.19/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a stubby 11.2 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip. Freshness date two years out. Slight white head with decent lacing. Amber color that does not look like a Tripel.
Very subdued aroma. Smells kind of like Duvel which is certainly not a bad thing but not really like a Tripel. No yeasty chalkiness that I look for in a Tripel. Again subdued, not the typical Tripel aroma that I like.
If I didn't know that this was a Tripel I wouldn't know it from the taste. It tastes like a variation of Duvel. Again, not a bad thing. No real fruity yeastiness of a Tripel. Really nice taste but not a Tripel. The alcohol is very well hidden.
Mouthfeel is all Duvel. Crisp, very little aftertaste and very Duvel like. Nice but not the smoothness that you sometimes get from a Tripel.
Overall a really good beer and the 10% abv doesn't hurt. I wouldn't know it was a Tripel in a blind taste test but a really good beer. My high ratings are because it is a really good beer not a good Tripel.

Just arrived in Juneau this past week.
Into a chalice.
A: nice looking hazy sort of brown almost orange colored body with a decent half fingered white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute, lacing is sparse but light and speckles here and there
S: oh boy, this is absolutely awesome - that typical "iced apples" smell I always get from a Tripel with some pears coming in nice and sweet and yet there's a nice spicy tone that kicks in to just give it the right balance
T: nice spicy yet sweet "iced apple" flavoring that just makes me feel really good, wow, yeah this is great stuff; slight "iced apple" aftertaste but not too much just right; the finish is quick and somewhat dry with a light apple-ish sort of-ness (if that makes sense)
M: light to medium, hmmmm....this could be somewhat sessionable, hmmm....I wonder if I could put this with that pepper steak I had this afternoon, hmmmm.... damn I there's a part of me that wishes I had more pepper steak to put this up with, the carbonation - hmmm....well not bad, hey, not too harsh and not too smooth, just a good carbonation for a Tripel
O: in my opinion, this is a very good Tripel, I can't believe I only discovered this as it arrived here in Juneau this past week, whoah, what the f. Solid, yes, more than Solid, seek and you will find a stellar Tripel! Do you like that Allagash stuff? This will blow that away.
