Apricot in color. One-finger of off-white head thins out quickly.

Aroma is thick with bubblegum, cotton candy, pear and orange. Are we going to be too sweet here? We will find out soon...

Mostly sweet with caramel, sugar cane, subtle spice and slight hops. Balance isn't bad, but definitely leans to the sweet side.

Medium bodied and creamy with a dry finish. Alcohol is fairly noticeable, a fact that works well here.

Digging this one and daydreaming about a future Belgian adventure where I will surely make a stop and enjoy this one at the source.

On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and spices. Taste is much the same with grain and spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the mouthfeel is off on this one.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

750mL brow glass (fake) cork and cage bottle. No date. Purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

No pop at all on the cork. Pours a really still hazy golden amber with very very thin white head. Nose is very sweet smelling, honeyed and floral. Palate is fairly flat and honeyed in both texture and flavor. Flowers and dried herbal hops are in the background of the sticky-sweet pale malt. There is no texture at all to this beer, just cloying really. Mildly bitter finish, but leaves me feeling sticky.

Notes: Wow, how mediocre can a triple/tripel be? Oh, this is it.

4.28/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy gold with a thin, lingering white mousse. Looks like a tripel.

S: The nose is dominated by notes of bitter orange, lemon, grass, and caramel. It smells hoppier than would expect.

T: Opens fruity and smooth with a mixture of caramel, cream, vanilla, and biscuity malt flavors, but the hops quickly assert themselves as flavors of grass, lemon, bitter orange, and kumquats emerge. The finish is hoppy and bitter with citrus and grass notes underscored by a peppery prickle of alcohol.

M: Relatively full-bodied, thick, and luscious. Carbonation is present, but not overly distracting. Not quite as dry as some examples of this style.

O: Truth be told, I'm a huge fan of Marc Limet and Brouwerij Kerkom. They've yet to let me down, and Bink Tripel is no exception. A very well-executed tripel.

Bink Tripel is a very nice yellow color that is not transparent at all. The look of the beer has a thin white head that leave just a tiny lacing down the glass. The aroma is very inviting, it's got some sweet grains and a little citrus on the nose. The taste is on the sweet side with just a little bit of spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very refreshing. This is a very good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Got one of the later pours out of the bottle, so it was a bit yeasty. Slightly hazed golden orange color with a finger of white head.

S: On the sweet side with a lot of sugar notes and some pale malts. Notes of light fruits such as apples and pears, with hints of banana. Sweet orange and orange peel are there as well. As it warms up, a stronger and stronger caramel smell comes through.

T: Caramel all the way through with still quite a lot of candi sugar and pale malts. Banana esters increase with intensity as the beer warms up. Good fruit notes of apple and orange, as well as some orange peel.

M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.

O: A solid tripel. While it is sweet, it's not cloyingly so.
