This is the perfect tripel. High gravity equates super quality. Go find it!

Appearance - 3.75/5
Pours a fairly clear medium orange. Minimal to no head. Small amount of carbonation bubbles rising at an average rate to the top. I would have liked to see more head on this beer. Also, with a name like 'Black Tulip' I was expecting the beer to be a little darker in color.

Smell - 4.25/5
Smells of breadiness and fruitness (berries, bananas, apples). Another sweet flavor (carmalized sugar?) which I am assuming is the beet sugar. Some alcohol smell. Overall, a very nice and complex smell.

Taste - 4/5
Taste is quite sweet. Tastes of carmalized sugar, berries, alcohol, general fruitiness. Overall, fairly tasty

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Light to medium in body, more on the creamy side. There is a light amount of medium-intensity carbonation.

Overall - 4/5
This is a fairly good beer, perhaps a little bit too sweet for my tastes, but that sweetness is generally part of the Tripel style. This seems to me like a good beer to drink in the winter/holiday months, with it's candy-like sweetness, and high ABV. I'm glad I got a 4-pack of these and will be sure to save at least one or two for the upcoming winter.
