750 ml. corked and caged bottle poured into a globe glass. The Triplication pours a hazed golden orange after a bit of struggle to remove the cork. Pops with good carbonation nonetheless and shows a steady cap of white foam. Maintains good lace throughout.

Nose is slightly sweet and mildly estery. Hint of lemony hops and a peppery yeast presence dominate. Spicy and phenolic, intriguing yet a bit atypical for the style on the surface. Warming brings forward some nice complexities however and nudges things up a bit.

Taste again offers a peppery spice and a decent body, along with a lingering finish with a bit of texture. This tripel lacks the fruity and clean notes common to the style yet offers a hoppier experience and a solid yeast presentation.

Overall a pretty solid expeience. Great Belgian yeast character.

In a tulip the beer was a golden color with a large white head. There was scant lacing.

Sweet fruity aroma, as well as peppery spice. Nice, but a little laid back.

Bananas, pears, peaches in the taste. Peppery. Sweet malt background. Taste also a bit timid.

This beer was sweet, probably too sweet for me.

Somewhat above average.

Picked this up at the brewery. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear honey hue with a good almost three finger head that slumps down to leave a thick one finger blanket. Not much side lacing though.

S - Pretty straight forward here. Light sweet malts, caramel, belgian spices, not much booze.

T - Again, pretty straight forward. Sweet (but not cloy) malts, belgian spice notes, faint, faint floral hops, alcohol, and a light almost creamy lacto note too on the finish. Finish quickly becomes boozy though.

M - Mouthfeel is on the lighter/thin side, and the finish is a bit too boozy for my liking. It works for a tripel, but I've had better.

O - Overall, not a bad tripel. A touch too boozy and straight forward.
