A- golden, clear, persistent ring of white bubbles

S- fruity pineapple with some movie theater popcorn, a bit like some Chardonnays.

T/M- buttery, dry, lightly tart, moderate carbonation, just a touch of hoppy bitterness in the mix.

O- a very different beer. Wine like in its dryness and diacetyl but still enjoyable as a saison.

Hazy gold color
Nose of pear, oak, barnyard funk, and a little golden raisin.
Taste is of biscuits, barnyard funk, lime zest, huge pear and tart green apple notes from the Chardonnay. With a crisp yet still creamy and off dry finish.
Mouthfeel is sharp and clean, yet smooth and medium bodied.
Overall a touch too sweet but the complexity is nice. Maybe a little less time in barrel would have done it for me. Nice overall though

Quite lovely foamy appearance in the Tripel Karmeliet tulip. Dark amber color with lots of lacing. Tangy and spritzy mouthfeel. A fruity champagne.

Aromatic yeasty and fruity nose. Pear skins and apple flavors. The dry finish give it the classic Belgian sensation-- fruit, grain, a sharp touch. Thoroughly drinkable and the sudsiness is quite pleasant. A little barrel booziness, some grapey tang, and a faintly sourish finish.

From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Wine & Liquors in Denver. This one is a year old and has held up better than a lot of beers.
