Pours from the bottle a slightly hazy peach color with a very large foamy white head and nice lacing. Smells both fruity and dry; lightly toasted grains combined with citrus and spice. Tastes somewhat dry and astringent initially, but the citrus fruitiness really comes forward as the beer warms. Develops significant tartness, spice, and hop dryness in the finish. Good medium body with excellent carbonation.

A bold triple with an appealing interplay of sweet and tart flavors. Very nice if you like somewhat sour beers.

Another one from the gift pack, this poured a deep amber with a very nice puffy cloud like head that slowly subsides, more around the edges of the glass than in the middle, makes for an interesting appearance. Smell too is interesting, sour, with the slight scent of red wine. Taste is nice, a little hop bitterness, followed with some sour notes. This beer is lightly carbonated, and has a smooth, light, creamy mouthfeel.

For the strength of this beer, it is a nice easy drink. I'd definitely get this again.

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

Poured from a 330 ml bottle. Left a one finger head with good retention, and some nice lacing in places. Body was an orange amber.

Smell - Spicy and estery yeast, hint of bananas, hint of bread, and hint of alcohol.

Taste - same as the nose - bread, caramel, fruity esters, hint of bananas, finishes with a huge, and somewhat unexpected, alcohol bite, warm, and borderline harsh, but on the good side of the border.

Mouthfeel - full, fairly smooth until alcohol astringency at the finish.

Drinkability - this is good, even inspite of the alcohol taste and astringency at the end. However, the high abv (10%) limits this ale to no more than two 330 ml serving in a given session.

Note - That alcohol bite would definitely be a turn off ordinarily, but somehow it is tolerable, it even actually works, in this ale.

750 mL bottle poured into a chalice.

Appearance is a Clear, dark golden colour with a huge, billowy off-white head on top, strong retention.

Smell is of black pepper, bread loaf with a sweet malt.

Taste is of baked bread, some citrus, hops and spice (cloves, black pepper

Mouthfeel is heavy carbonation, the pepper kick is very strong though, this lingers at the back of the throat, the booziness of this beer is not masked well at all.

Drinkability - one twelve ounce serving from the 750ML was enough as the peppery profile and the booziness of the beer was almost overpowering. Not a bad beverage, but I've had what I thought were better representations of this style.

This beer poured a cloudy golden orange out of a 25 ounce bomber into a wine glass. There was a creamy white head with nice retention and lacing. The smell was fruity, with a slight alcoholic tinge to it.

The taste was a bit overt; powerful malt, strong alcohol, and a slight bitterness. It wasn't bad, but too atringent to really appreciate the usual subtleties that come along with tripels. Mouthfeel was smooth and the finish was clean. Drinkability was decent for 10% ABV, despite the alcoholic undertone... overall it's an OK tripel, certainly not the best, but not bad.

Appearance- an off color orange to brownish in color with an absolute explosion of carbonation up to moderate tan head, appearance appeace almost over carbonated,

Smell- yeast, malts, slight hop, usual belgian tripel aromas, not overwhelming nose, citrus, orange,

Taste- slight citrus and definite alcohol and malt, good amount of spice really keeps the malt sweetness in check, very balanced in terms of sweetness and and spice, i would say that slightly noticeable is still is the alcohol being bit powerful, good though i do feel lacks bit wow factor in flavor though not bad,

Mouthfeel- medium bodied with a strong amount of carbonation, smooth yet can feel bit of alcohol heat,

Drinkability- this beer seem to be an okay belgian triple but certainly far from the best I have had too, a bit high on alcohol and spice would liked little slight more sweetness balance, also appeared just be overcarbonated, ehh okay but nothing id seek again

From notes.

Bottle into Barilla jar.

This beer looked smelled and tasted very good. Kinda copper in color and big bubbly head. Tastes are a bit of pink bubble gum and candy sugars. With a nice dark caramel taste. Hints of booziness in there but not overpowering and they lend to the overall flavor. Good beer try one one.

Pours a clear golden orange with a hefty light orange head that refuses to die down. Nice thick lacing down the walls of my snifter.

Smells of boozy fruit and yeast mixed with typical Belgian spices such as clove and white pepper. Fruit bouquet is absolutely delightful smelling of fall fruits such as pears, apples, and orange peel. Delightful!

Tastes similar to its smell, but with greater emphasis on the spices than the fruits. A little hot from the alcohol for a typical tripel, but settles in nicely with all of the other flavours. Finishes with a spicy dryness.

Mouthfeel is typical of a tripel and the fine carbonation is enjoyable. The enjoyable nose and taste makes this an easy drinker, but high alcohol even for the style subtracts from some of the drinkability. I'll be looking for this one again as it was very enjoyable.

Pours an almost clear rich golden color with notes of amber. It has a medium creamy very persistant head that leaves very good lacing.

The aroma is a balance between cloves and bannana and pears. And after a swirl in the glass, there comes through a bright but mild floral hoppy aroma. Very nice indeed.

Then in the flavor is much cloves which I don't really like so much. It's the turnoff for me in belgium beers. But it's not bad though because it still has the pears and some mild floral hops to keep it from being a bad taste. And I get none of the typical chalky taste in this beer. Not bad, just a little too much cloviness and a very hefty hop bittereness too.

This beer has a full very slick feel with a dry finish.

It's pretty drinkable I'd say. I just might get some more of this for a tasting or something.

A: Clear dark orange body with three fingers of white fluffy head. Retention is fair and leaves little lacing.

S: Light citrus fruits, alcohol, floral notes and some yeast.

T: Ok, wow, alcohol. I find this quite boozy fresh. Following is sweet fruits and unique yeast.

M: Light bodied with medium-high carbonation. Leaves a dry fruity aftertaste with a strong booze finish.

D: I'm going in have to wait on the other one I have to see how I feel about it when the booze diminishes.

25.4 oz. bottle. Picked up on a trip to Dallas. Not available here in Wichita.

Appearance: Lightly hazy with a color that was light-amber to golden. Big white head that was fluffy and slow to dissipate, though it was a little rough looking. Lacing was spectacular.

Smell: Very Belgian-like (go figure). Candy-sweet, hints of yeast, and fruit, mainly apples. Strangely, there was a little pilsner-like hops on the nose, plus an undeniable grassy quality.

Mouthfeel: Relatively light-bodied. It came across as almost crisp at first, but started to become a little chewy later on. Pretty smooth, just some velvety carbonation in the back of the mouth.

Taste: A little bit of yeast and fruit, combined with a fairly big sweetness. Quite a bit of alcohol, but not enough to overpower.Oddly enough, some of the pilsner-like qualities that I detected in the smell came through in the flavor. Grass and a light, spicy hops.

Kind of an odd one for me. Not bad, but I wouldn't have thought it was a Belgian abby in a blind tasting.
