4.6/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

33 cl bottle poured into Moinette chalice.

A: Although I don't recall my last bottle of Petit Houblon to be as such, there are TONS of suspended yeast in this brew, which lends to an extremely cloudy, apricot-tinted pour. Some may get turned off by this, but I think it's a fascinating looking beer. Barely any head to speak of.

S: Fresh and mild, with banana, pineapple and faint hops coming through. Very hard for one to consider this offensive in any way.

T: Surprisingly full-bodied compared to the smell, this brew has a lot going on. Hops take the lead role in this beer (amarillo, tomahawk and saaz), but that's not to say that they overwhelm the classic tripel characteristics that are present; it's a very well-balanced beer actually. Alcohol is there, but very pleasant, warming and not at a detraction at all.

M: Mouthfeel is unsurprisingly that of a nicely built tripel - sharp carbonation, tannins and a silky texture. Very nice.

D: This is one of the most interesting takes on a Belgian IPA that I've seen, and it's nice to see the hops used with restraint, which leads to a very balanced beer that drinks extremely well. Extra points for a super cool bottle.

Absolutely wonderful brew.
