A: A cloudy blonde/slight orange color. One finger of head. Excellent retention and nice lacing too.

S: The smell on this one was immediate. A soon as I opened the bottle I got aromas of bread, fruit, malt, and cloves.

T: Fruity esters. Banana esters, maybe some apple or pear. I also get a nice bit of clove. Malt body is a bit more noticeable than some other tripels I've had. It has that nice sort of honey-like sweetness a lot of tripels do, but it also has this nice ever so slightly toasted note(e.g something like Munich.) I also got some red licorice when pairing it with some nice belgian bread... Strange.

F: A bit too prickly IMO; the carbonation could be dialed back a bit. The body is maybe a touch thick, but overall its okay.

O: This was really, really nice. One of the best tripels I've had by far. I could easily see myself picking some up every now and again. Modest price for an amazing product

True to style... However very boozy, I've had many beers at 9%abv if not more, but this has too much burn on the phone exhale, it feels like someone added vodka. The alcohol is really not well masked at all. If this was either 5%abv or not so boozy I'd give it a 7.5/10

$ 8.99/16.9 oz (500 mL) bottle at vintage estates in Boardman. OH
Bottled Mar 17 2010 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of yeast phenolics.
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to irregular layer between 2 – 8 mm thick. The second pour after the brew has warmed, is thickerand more lasting.
Lacing OK – islands and archipelagos of mostly small bubbles.
Body medium yellow, yeast haze.
Flavor begins with a spicy, slightly clovey, taste with a light bite. Yeast phenolics are evident, becoming more so as the beer warms up. The alcohol cannot be tasted but immediately begins a stomach burn. No hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation.

Another tripel which meets the style criteria. Not fantastic and not bad – average taste.

500ml bottle in Duvel tulip
Bottled on 3/5/14
purchased at La Duchesse in Quebec City

A: Golden color, crystal clear, thick white head that drops quickly
S: Spicy Belgian yeast
T: A very disticint Belgian yeast flavor, lots of spicy phenols, very little fruity/estery aromatics, almost no malt character, just a little malt sweetness.
M: Creamy, but crisp mouthfeel, nice level of carbonation
O: A good Tripel, very well made, but it doesn't stand out. I would purchase again, but it would be price dependent.
