look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pouring from a slightly chilled bottle into a tulip glass, it pours w/ a light eggshell colored oily surface layer and quickly dissipates to the apricot colored surface. The body has a lot of tripel characteristics due to sediment floating throughout.

Aroma is a bit of some florals; apricots along with with a slightly floral hops maybe. Not very complex for a tripel IMO.

A tart, sour apricot or peach flavor explodes on my palate. This reminds me of a lambic almost. However, very tasty with some definite alcohol bite at the finish. Very clean with some drying.

Bubbly carbonation throughout the sip and swallow with some alcohol dryness on the finish. Medium bodied and nice.

Overall, get your hands on this one. It truly suprised me!

Think I got this bottle from cam in a goandpickitupforyabro box back in the day. 2007 vintage that I have probably been holding for a few years as well. I guess tonight is the night...enjoyed from a la fin du monde tulip (despite most reviews saying that this isn't very triple like, we'll see about that).

a - brew poured a ruby chestnut with a finger plus of big frothy cream colored head, nice staying power. Slippery lacing.

s - nose is massively sweet. Knock you over sweet. Really rich and syrupy. Gooey. Caramelish. Musty.

t/m/o - whoa. Too much. Just too sweet. Cannot handle...sorry, not my bag. Although I never had this fresh, I can tell you that 7 yrs is too much. I can only handle small sips of this beer. I will have to try this fresh to give it a fair shake, but please don't age this for 7 yrs unless you want to play a joke on someone.

This beer is a sugary mess! Not sure why it's classified as a Belgian trippel. Little head that dissipated quickly. The Belgian phenolic funk is subdued on the nose. Sweet... Didn't the yeast convert the sugar??? No attenuation. Will not buy again.
