Mais uma cerveja que eu resolvi esquecer tudo que li sobre ela, para tirar a minha própria verdade. Na garrafa ela já havia me surpreendido, mas nada se comparou a prová-la na pressão. Foi uma experiência única, uma cerveja poderosa, encorpada e de personalidade incrível. Algo inesquecível.

My new favorite! Very sophisticated but pairs well with something as simple as pizza. Love it!

A- hazy reddish orange amber with golden highlights. super creamy big puffy off-white head lasts forever and it's no surprise that there's a ton of lace here. like just about all belgian beers this baby looks beautiful in a gently contoured tulip. foam has the same consistency as duvel, and along with the deep color this is one striking brew.

S- soft fruity marshmallow sweetness, pineapple upside-down cake, strawberry, cantaloupe, pear, banana, caramel, vanilla, a minute touch of floral alcohol esters, the head is so sturdy and muffling that it makes it difficult to pull the aromas through. very clean yeast and not at all funky.

T- fruity just like the aroma and mildly hoppy, white pepper, clove, nutmeg, banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, pear, mandarin, rose, brown sugar, maraschino, melon, orange blossom honey, perfect balance of sweet and tart, some sweet grain in the finish, barely an indication of the whopping 10% alcohol. finishes with light citrus hop bitterness, somewhat herbal, and pleasantly drying.

MF- luxurious and smooth, like well conditioned worn-in leather, light carbonation makes for a thick juicy feel, very soft and plush with some stickiness as it dries.

D- the duvel family hides their alcohol with remarkable execution, and it's something the rest of the brewing world has to live up to. to make a 10% abv beer that doesn't taste the least bit boozy is an incredible feat. perfect balance, amazing flavor, and sheer smoothness make this another dangerously drinkable monster.

I can't believe how underrated this beer is! It's so much beter than Duvel. Honestly, I can't find much fault with this beer (although I've yet to try Westvleteren). It is very similar to Duvel in many respects although it seems like all of Duvel's great qualities have been enhanced in this one. Pours with a huge rocky head that hangs around for the duration. I think that the appearance is prettier than Duvel as well. It's a goregous golden color. It tastes like ripe fruit with a touch of bitterness to keep things from getting too sweet. Also, the carbonation is a little more restrained in this which makes it possible to actually swallow. If you like Duvel, definitely try this.

I tried this beer on August 10, 2007 at the Biermarket in Toronto. The beer was poured into a glass with a small white head that dissipated quickly. The beer was a cloudy orange-brown colour. The aroma was a strong yeasty aroma with some perfumy florals. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. The taste has hints of malt and bread with no bitterness whatsoever.

Poured from bottle into a large wine glass.

A - Hazy yellow. Awesome thick white head. Looks delicious.

S - Some citrus, some floral, alcohol scent here too. Coriander.

T - Very nice. A bit of spice, some hops, but balanced. Syrupy and sweet.

M - Let this brew warm up a bit. Once it has settled and warmed, the carbonation dissipated and I enjoyed it much more.

Summary - Very nice brew. If you like Belgian brews, you owe it to yourself to give this, or any Maredsous, a try. One of the better Tripels around.

11.2 FL OZ bottle.

Poured out a inch and half thick chunky white head. It reduced to about half an inch while leaving a trail of thick lace. Every sip revealed a new ring of lace. The color is a hazy gold. The aroma has the typical Belgian smell. Exceptional mouthfeel in every aspect. Total balance of bitterness, carbonation, texture, Hops, Body, Finish. The ABV is high, but drinkability will be also. I can't believe how drinkable this is. Gentle warming of the stomach. First sip gave me the chills because I couldnt believe how good it is. haha, I also can't believe how fast I am drinking this! Taste has just the right balance of hops and malt.This is like sex in a bottle.I rarely give out 5's and this beer is just about all 5's. I would like to see a more complex aroma meaning it is a bit one-sided. 90% done with this and I am feeling the ABV.This has been an absolute pleasure to drink. I will try this again.

Poured chilled in ale glass from bomber split with friends

A: cloudy, dark orange; buoyant head (2 fingers); great lacing; great carb streams
S: orange, sweet, malty, very inviting
T: Wow, wow, wow; this is what I expect in a tripel and more; pear, banana, strong alcohol content; intense sweet flavor
M: creamy and smooth (I didn't feel the flaws other reviewers pointed out; quite the opposite)

This is an amazing, amazing beer

Really a beautiful beer. Nice deep straw color, just barely orange. Healthy carbonation but head is maybe 1cm max. I want more on a big tripel! But I can quickly raise a 4-5 cm head on it so maybe its the glass...

Nose is nice too. Big esters. Big bananas. A bit bready too...might just be the yeast notes though. Also some nice candi sugar scents.

Big flavor!! Very nice. The alcohol is really quite noticeable and you can feel it on your breath...but that's ok..I want that in a big beer. Nice mellow fruitiness on the palette...not as big as on the nose. Really smooth sweetness that is not cloying at all. Just a touch bitter in the finish...really superb.

Mouthfeel is right on. Perfect. Smooth but not sticky sweet. Nice carbonation level really lifts up the body and helps bring out the flavors nicely.

Very drinkable.

This is an outstanding strong tripel. Really fantastic.

An excellent beer, one of my absolute favorite types of beer is the begian tripel and Maredsous is one of the best. An amber color with a nice creamy white head. The malt taste is not overly sweet but is balanced well with an almost caramel-like finish. First had it at Red Resturant in Huntington, NY. Had it yesterday at Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington, Vermont.
