my local store just got this in, i love bells so i picked it up without question
a belgen tripel... not really familiar with these, the only comparison i have is La Fin Du Monde...
pours a very light golden, but also pale/cloudy with a tiny white head that just barely hangs around, smells all kinds of ripe fruit, with a hint of clove and ginger
taste is very similar to lfdm, but a tad lighter, and with more carbonation... also seems to have much more of an aftertaste of spice, clove, cinnamon
very similar to champagne in flavor, but quite a bit heavier and not nearly as carbonated... not really my style of beer, but i much more prefer this to champagne, so i would possibly go for one of these again on special occasions

3.24/5 rDev -15%

Served in a Dogfish shaped pint glass.
Like fine champagne... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset golden-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit, light banana peel, light green apple skin, and a touch of spicy yeast. The taste brings in more of the same, with the biscuit and a less-spicy version of the yeast taking full control. Every now and again, some chlorophyll-laden flowers peek their heads in to make sure things are going okay. What diligent babysitters (he says sarcastically). The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, not all that reflective of a tripel, nor all that sparkling. It's not a bad beer, but one I just don't see drinking all that much of in the future.
