330ml bottle 10% Abv.
Served chilled in an over sized wine glass.
Best Before: 11/2015

Appearance: Maredsous Triple pours a beautiful (almost clear) amber-orange, with a gentle pour yielding a massive off white head. The head lasts ridiculously well for the Abv. and leaves large patches of lacing clinging to the glass once it finally starts recede. A light swirl regenerates some foam and results in light alcohol legs.

Smell: Wow, the nose here is quite a lot sweeter and less boozy than I remember. Big fruity characters leap out of the glass, with notes of ripe stone fruits (peach and nectarine), apple, lightly tart white grapes and oddly some overripe pineapple. A little caramel malt and some spices (clove and pepper) are also noted. As the beer begins to warm, some alcohol becomes apparent as well as a little more tart fruit character.

Taste: Unfortunately the flavor isn’t quite as good as the nose promised - the initial flavor is pretty good, however the finish is fairly boozy and displays a distinct bitterness that seems to be a little out of place. At the front of the mouth there is quite a bit of sweetness with notes of caramel malt and honey, this evolves into strong fruity esters (peach, white grape, pear and a little banana) alongside some clove and a little pepper. As the beer warms, a light tartness becomes apparent alongside the booze in the finish.

Mouthfeel: As with most Belgian ales this is initially a little over carbonated for my tastes, thankfully though it settles down quite quickly and is sufficiently smooth that it does not detract from the beer too much
The body is medium or just over and displays a hint of stickiness.

Overall: Maredsous 10 is a solid beer, but falls a little short of the best examples of the style. I wonder if a little more time in the bottle would help to smooth over some of the rough edges – I guess I’ll have to get another bottle to test this theory.
