look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured from the 750ml caged and corked bottle into a standard pint glass (I really need to wash my Belgian glasses)
Beer pours lightly hazed and golden with yeast sediment swimming about just looking for anything else to ferment. Head is solid with large soft bubbles that gradually fade in the glass. Lacing is healthy on the sides but not overboard. This is very impressive on appearance if nothing else.
Smell- Well, it's impressive on something else. Light citrus and white pepper, light 2 row Belgian pilsner malts, the yeast is very impressive, light and fluffy but light fruits linger in there as well. I hate using the term complex because it doesn't really describe anything, but it's the best I can come up with at this point in time.
Taste- Creamy and spicy at the same time, fruity and soft on the tongue. The white pepper flavor comes right through, none of that over sweet candi taste that frequently comes through in Tripels. Super light hop presence that provides an excellent balance. Honestly, this may be the most solid Tripel I have ever tasted, and I'm very pleasantly surprised.
Mouthfeel- Lightly sticky, but not overly, highly carbonated, very smooth, creamy, and medium light bodied.
Drinkability- For a tripel I have a feeling you will have a hard time finding anything smoother. Not warming for the gravity. Very enjoyable.

Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades rather fast, leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with the heaviest of the smells being that of a yeasty and biscuit like aroma. Along with these aromas are some smells of a more floral and spicy nature with the spice being mainly of a clove and coriander.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a light level of yeastiness and spice. The spice is mainly of a coriander and clove nature with these flavors later being accentuated by some other spice flavors of a pepper and floral spice nature. Flavors of a more citrus nature come to the tongue as the taste advances with orange and tangerine coming to the tongue. Some floral and grassy hops come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste along with some flavors of banana and bubblegum, with the mix of flavors in the end, creating a moderately sweet, but very easy going smooth Belgian flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side for a triple with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for the fruit flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was rather decent for the style.
Overall – A very easy drinking triple that hides the alcohol very well. Very inoffensive and rather refreshing and quite drinkable in light of its 8.5% abv. Nothing overly exceptional, but still rather enjoyable. A very neutral Belgian triple.

Another popular Belgian beer I seem to have not rated or reviewed, even though I'm sure I've drank it many times over the years: I can now put that right. 33cl Bottle on 3rd Feb 2014 in Cambrinus, Brugge.
Pale blonde body with a snow white head.
Spicy nose with yeast and floral hop base.
The taste followed in the same lines as the smells with a good fruity undertone that gives a semi-sweet and yet sour feel to the flavours.
Easy drinking triple with a deceptive alcohol level, it is a lot stronger than it tastes.
