4.4/5 rDev +20.9%
Poured 11.2 ounce bottle @ 42 degrees into glass St Bernardus challis
A) Thick hazy straw-gold liquid with billowy white muffin top head. Lot's of yeasties with some sediment settling at the bottom.
S) Sweet apricot jam & sour dough mash. Orange citrus and spice. Spectacular.
T) Sweet and citrusy with toned down bitter hops. Candy cane sugar, sweet caramel, raisons. It's all there. Some spice but the alcohol is barely apparent. But it's there too.... This is an excellent triple.
M) Creamy & thick with effervescent fizz carbonation from bottle conditioning. Very smooth but complex.
D) With the alcohol so high, it's difficult to drink a few at one time, but I sure would like to.

This is the style I love, done well. Fluffy white meringue type head. Underneath is a honey color with a slightly musky smell, a hint of citrus, and just enough carbonation. The taste is sweet and grainy. Rounded off with a warming alcohol and hearty thickness that lets you know, this is beer!

Pours a hazy pale orange with a thin and bubbly off-white head. Sweet malts waft to the nose immediately, mixed with some prominent light fruits (orange, pears, lemon) some vanilla, and Belgian yeast. Tastes just a tad sour initially, and is quickly followed by more malty sweetness. Vanilla creaminess fills the palate. Butterscotch at cloves exist. There's a faint grainy and somewhat chalky aftertaste. Alcohol is palpable, but well blended, and most welcomed. Haven't had a great Tripel in a while, and this one reminds me why this is one of my favorite styles.

I'm not a big fan of beers that explode out of the bottle. Of course, there is a huge head and it does leave a thick coating of lace. Very cloudy. Pale gold color.
The aroma is of mild yeast and lighter malt.
Light sourness to an otherwise malty brew. Nice spiciness covers the alcohol warmth which shows up in the swallow.
I like this tripel more than most. It's refreshing and complex.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled Dec. 2009.
(A)- Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Produced a good fluffy white head with great retention behind it. Left behind tiny clumps of lacing behind.
(S)- A dry biscuit-like wheat/hay/straw thing. Bits of a floral-like vanilla clay at the end.
(T)- Very similar to the smell. Bits of lemon and banana in front of a sweet honey-like core. Bits of dry biscuit/wheat in there. Finishes in an earthy clay.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. A tad bit sweet for the style, but everything else is great. Rather smooth and crisp.
(D)- A solid example of the style. A bit too sweet, but still has a great flavor and feel to it. Definitely a sleeper for the style/a diamond in the rough so to speak. Very enjoyable and a delightful surprise.

Smell: ginger and lemongrass
Taste: extremely effervescent with huge hits of green apples and champagne with a cantaloupe aftertaste
Very simply flavors that a reminiscent of a Sunday brunch mixed drink however, I am a huge fan of odd beers and this one definitely has a place in my mind as being one of the curiosities.
I actually paired this with an everything omelette with sharp cheddar, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, and bacon--always bacon

A gusher. Lively dark brass with a few floaties and rocky French vanilla head that leaves chunky trailers. Lemon meringue, yeast, wildflower and waxberry nose.
Country white loaf, lemon curd and a touch of yellow plum up front, jammy carambola in the middle and winter spice to end.
Gingerbread finish and tingly sherbet linger. Soft, round, very creamy, slight burn.
Don't know if that's a bottling or expiration date, but either way, this had 3 years in the cellar. And I suspect this turned an average tripel into a good one. Smooth and mellow, with big fruit. Almost afraid to try this fresh.

Poured into snifter.
Hazy amber beer with fluffy off-white head, ok resistance. Nice floral and fruity aroma - orange, honey. Taste is not very bad - heavy, yeasty, rather dry with significant bitterness in the finish, high carbonation, alcohol is well-hidden. A beer with a character, requiring further comprehension.

1 Pint bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip.
P- Golden body with a hazy fog making it hard to see through the crystal clear glass. 2 finger head with fair retention not to mention the "D" etched on the glass is probably helping the head stay afloat and healthy.
S- Orange peel, lemon zest, bread & biscuit, caramel and a hint of booze.
T- Bready, malty, tangy and suprisingly no presence of booze in the taste.
M- Medium bodied with leaves small traces of the flavour behind. I wish it would have been a bit more explosive in the finish but it is still above average throughout the whole sip.
Overall: something about this Tripel screams "Duvel" to me, or maybe my taste buds and senses are hallucinating. Either way, it is very tasty and a sipper.. ( if you can drink this slow that is)

A - golden colour with a light bubble filled head. The head is short and fades quickly. After the head fades you are left with a mirky looking film on the top.
S - a slight spice and sweet nose, reminding me of banana bread for some reason - could just be the day...
T - again, I'm reminenising about banana bread... slight hint of cloves, spice with a small amount of sweet. A light tasting triple in comparison to other triples.
M - light in my mouth, a slight tingle at first with the spice notes hitting first and finishing sweeter.
O - a nice easy drinking tripel. Worth drinking again but not the best triple out there. It's lacking some of the complexities required of a great tripel.

A- Pours a clear golden yellow with quite a bit of carbonation that creates a billowy white head that settles to a modest and creamy covering.
S- White bread, candied light fruits, a bit of a Belgian kick, and some alcohol. Sweet and aromatic. The alcohol definitely sticks out.
T- Sweet malt, light fruit, a touch of horse blanket, and a definite alcohol dryness and warmth on the finish.
M- The body is smooth and creamy but that doesn't last long due to the alcohol warmth and dryness that quickly makes the beer almost seem to evaporate and leave a bit of numbness on the palate.
O- A very enjoyable take on the style. The alcohol is definitely apparent, but it does not detract from the beer as a whole. Definitely worth trying for fans of the style.
