Dominus Vobiscum sounds scary but the Tripel looks rather approachable; a perfectly clear, albeit worn-out golden, there's little to be intimidated by. Light flickers off it like it does a warm lake on a sunny summer day. Its head is persistent, but irregular and warty, with bubbles that spring up like mushrooms after a heavy rain.

It's not unusual for beers of this style to have floral, fruity bouquets, but Dominus Vobiscum Triple smells like some kind of ethereal garden. The voices of angels can be heard signing. It's an aroma perhaps best described by a botanist as notes of magnolia, gooseberry, sweet briar, violets, blueberry and ambrosia are instilled.

The flavour, likewise, could warrant a whole gastronomy thesis. Apple orchard, rose petal, muscat grape, cedar wood, cereal grain, fresh cut grass, honey, artichoke, and passionfruit - I understand a list like that may sound made up, but I assure you those flavours were carefully selected from dozens more that could have been added.

And the descriptors continue into the mouthfeel: It has the herbalness of dill, the zest of fresh grated ginger, the spice of caraway seed, the earthy bitterness of truffles, the dryness of straw, and the citrusy aftertaste of tangerine. Add to it a pumpkin spice-like complexity and just an ounce of inevitable alcohol warmth. Wowza.

Like Tony Bennett, Dominus Vobiscum Triple is a timeless, universal classic that has perfected its craft. Other than the obvious Belgian staples I can think of few other tripels so complex and so charming. It is far and away one of the most layered, intricate beers I've tried, so much so that it's probably made me sound a liar. Emphatically recommended.

Wow, really hard to fault this beer. Poured at a good temperature with colossal, off-white, fluffy, foamy, frothy, billowy head that lasts a while and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber with a ridiculous number of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, bread dough, malt, spice. Flavor's like nose with sweet on top and cut by carbonic tang and finally by bitter of hop and yeast. Huge mouth fill and perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor, lasts a while, and has some alcohol warmth. Fab beer! Wish I could get it locally.

Pours five+ finger white head that fades very slowly, leaving a good lace. Hazy straw color. Very good carbonation and medium bodied. Belgian yeast nose and flavor is sweet fruit and Belgian yeast. Nice triple. $7.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma. Bottled Mar 2010.

I poured the beer into a large chalice. A good gold color with white head that stuck around. I could smell a little orange-like citrus. The initial taste was citrus, and some malty roastiness came out. A light feel on my tongue with a little bit of alcohol warmth.

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a golden yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head and below average lacing.

S: A nice aroma of fruit, malt yeast. Smelled like a tripel should.

T: Tasted of apples, pears, yeast, malt, and some spices (pepper, e.g.). A very tasty, very complex beer.

M: Lots and lots of carbonation with a super dry finish. Medium-bodied, but never overly heavy.

D: An excellent, drinkable tripel.
