look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a dark orange almost Amber colour with a big white and foamy head. Good retention and many lacings left

S: Sweet, fruity and spice. Honey, caramel malts and belgian yeasts. Quite strong on alcohol in the end

T: Caramel malts and Belgian yeasts are a must. Quite fruity too. Some honey. Balanced sweet-bitterness. Remarkable on personality. Once again, quite liquorous end

M: Heavy, creamy and a bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation

O: Very decent Triple from a respectable brewery

A bitter, somewhat medicinal Tripel that is still quite good. This is a difficult category and Maredsous has some extremely stiff competition. At any rate, the beer looks great. It's a dusky gold with a fine soapy head. It fits just right in my Chimay goblet. The nose is beginning to grow on me, but it's still somewhat medicinal and bitter. It smells very Belgian and won't be confused for an American Tripel. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but maybe it will strike a chord with someone.

The flavor is earthy and good, but something is just kind of off. I'm not quite sure why. It's not a bad tripel. The alcohol is hidden away in complexity. I'm nibbling on a small bit of good cheddar cheese while I drink it and that adds to the experience, although I would prefer an even larger-flavored cheese. The sharpness of the cheddar provides a nice contrast to the bittersweet earthiness of the beer.

The feel is excellent. It's velvety and smooth. Fine bubbles prick gently at your tongue. It's a fairly drinkable beer that has grown on me over the course of a meager 11.2 oz. This score may well have gone up if I had more beer. Strike that. This score will go up because I have a 75cl bottle in my closet cellar.

A: Pours a somewhat murky gold color with a massive frothy bright white head that recedes slowly but does leave a nice bit of pretty lacing around the glass.

S: Nice light smells of bubblegum, cloves, a bit of banana and some nice malts. A pleasant smell all around although there just isn't much of it unfortunately.

T: The alcohol is the first thing I notice, it's not hidden as well as I would have liked, but let's get on to the goods. Oddly enough I taste more bitter hops than I do the sugary malts that you'd typically associate with a Triple. Other tastes of bubblegum and a blend of spices. Pretty average for a triple in my eyes but still pretty pleasant.

MF: Nothing wrong with this ale in this category it's pretty spot on, it dances on the tounge with just enough carbonation and a bit oily but that (in my eyes) is a plus. I don't feel it's worthy of a straight up 5 simply because it doesn't amaze me, it's just that nothing is wrong with it.

D: Not too bad in this category, definitely a beer for colder weather as the alcohol content does tend to warm you up quite a bit, although it's not exactly an "every weekend" type of beer either.
