3.15/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This beer poured a clear golden color with not much head. No lacing around the glass, either. Aroma was cloves and bananas and perhaps a few spices.

Up front is the sweet honey and fruit flavor, but then the back end is highly alcoholic. Slight hop bitterness in the finish as well. Mouthfeel is crisp and light, which is nice. Overall though, I thought the brew was a bit bearish and a lot to take. I'd recommend finding other Belgians out there.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a one-finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving traces lace. Hazy amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium-strong carbonation and medium bodied. Spicy caramel nose and flavor is similar. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.65 for a 12oz bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett NH.

Nice, full bodied...subtly spiced...exquisite with cinnamon sugared rim! Thought I would try as an Xmas treat, was not disappointed...9.00% alcohol bot does not hit you over the head...flows smoothly to send you into a sweet place! I would most definitely recommend this beer for special occasions

2.94/5  rDev -21%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A - Pours slightly cloudy with a dark straw, almost orange, hue and and a quickly dissipating head

S - Fruity on the nose, mainly tropical, with mango and pineapple being the most prominent aromas along with the notes of the esters from the Belgium yeast. The spiciness that I am use to with this style was not apparent over the fruitiness of the nose.

T- The dominate tropical notes continue into the flavor of the beer with the addition of pear as well as some spicy undertones of white pepper and possibly a touch of clove. A present tartness typical of the style rounds out the finish.

M - Medium body with a lack of carbonation ends up providing an underwhelming mouthfeel for this style.

O - Overall the body and carbonation falls flat while the tropical flavor overwhelms any delightful spiciness and limits the depth of flavors I expected with this style.

3.66/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is rather hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some small particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a thin head that quickly dissipated, leaving only some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeasts are present in the nose—pears stand out in particular—along with hints of alcohol and spices.
T: The taste has flavors of pears and pineapples along with slight hints of alcohol and peppery spices.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that bad but lacks interesting aromas or flavors. It's rather drinkable and hides its alcohol relatively well considering the strength.

2.76/5  rDev -25.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25

Date tasted: June 28, 2013... Glassware: Affligem chalice... Occasion: O's defeat Sabathia--a good day of work too....Appearance: slowly simmering bubbles populate a thinly cloudy white head on a copper golden body--not impressive or noteworthy... Aroma: tight, strong citric push; a bit malty and hints at the 9..0% ABV already... Palate: intense, throast-scorching finish early; full-bodied and thick with some fizz... Taste: a grapefruit pucker and some grainy flecks of alcoholic weight--a nameless warming flavor pervades... Overall: Surprisingly, this beer mellows halfway through thee glass; still retains its weight but allows for easier drinking; the profile, though, is effected and does not stand much for making a memorable experience--a serviceable tripel that is probably a bit below its price point in terms of quality....
