A hazy straw yellow with a finger of head, quick dissipation. Smells of honey, pilsner malt, bread, spicy peppery Belgian yeast. The flavor is more leaning towards a Belgian strong pale. Malty with a subtle sweetness, evenly balanced by hops and white pepper flavor, bready. Probably the tastiest tripel I've ever had. Medium in body, higher carbonation. Refreshingly awesome. As someone who generally avoids this style of beer, I have to say this is excellent. Not like the usual over abundantly sugary sweet tripels.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a flared wine glass.

Pale apricot gold brass and yellow lemon. Very orb glowing quality with some thin carbonation in the middle. No head produced, what little was bone white and evaporated very quickly. Virtually no collar or anything left at all. Very nice body color though.

Great bouquet on this brew. Large bakery dough and sweet pastry notes. Hints of angel cake, deep grains and malt, with just a touch of sweetness. Minimal sensing hotness of alcohol but nothing large but slightly noticeable. VEry nice.

Palate is explosive. Large pear and juiced fruit notes, with large bread and thick undertones. Slightly hinting tropical mango in the sweetness character, good amounts of vanilla on this also with just a hint of booze. Classic matching bread dough from the nose, with cake like sweetness. Slightly creamy but with a dry effervescent mouthfeel pop with mild to moderate carbonation, and a bit of huoney malt density.

A very impressive state side tripel, full of lush palate flavors, and unique tastes to go with it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on: 12/14/2013
Appearance:
Honey blonde body with a rich honey colored center. Hazy with a medium height- crisp white head that is thick and frothy
Nose:
Light Belgian style malt scents, honey and clove
Palate:
Wonderfully refreshing, bright and crisp. Fruits, pears, lemon zest, citrus, clove, light alcohol presence. Terrific mouthfeel, light and crisp
Overall:
Easily the best Tripel I’ve come across- Adelbert’s beers have such a good balance of character and you get the sense that you aren’t missing anything in the beer. It’s heavier in alcohol content, yet you wouldn’t know it. Extremely enjoyable and highly recommended.

Batch No. 17. Bottled on 2/13/14.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, spice, yeast, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart malt, spice, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice fruit and spice combination all around.
