Poured into a chalice.
A - Pours a near-clear deep orange, almost brownish... the color of an over-ripe persimmon. It produces a quick-growing thick foamy head, roughly 3 fingers without a particularly vigorous pour. It hangs around for a while, leaving a good amount of lacing.
S - A bit of phenic acid scent is the only flaw in the nose of this beer. A big bouquet of pear, peppery spice, Belgian yeast, dried wheat and apricot.
T - Much like the nose, this is a very well-made tripel. Lots of fruit, almost borderline tart, yeast, dry wheat, and a sweetness in the finish... a hint of bitterness rounds out the flavor. Also like the nose, a bit of phenol comes through as the only flaw that I'm detecting.
M - Great carbonation... I'm usually a little turned off by Triples that are overcarbonated, and this is not one of them. It's chewy yet drinkable, very little noticeable alcohol. Very dry finish, which lends to the bitterness on the end of the taste.
O - A solid Tripel that I will certainly buy again now that it's showing up in California. Dry, fruity, crisp, and technically very sound.

This is probably the best beer Boulevard makes. Their Belgian born brew master brings the right amount of tradition to the sometimes overly innovative American brew culture.
Appearance- Poured into a tulip glass with a stark white head, the beer is straw colored with a slight orange hue. Overall a gorgeous beer.
Smell- Bright citrus fruit notes. Mild smell of hay. Alcohol is present.
Taste- Alcohol is on the front. Fairly sweet with mild grapefruit notes. Apple notes and mild floral aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Very carbonated. A little dry. Has a mild acidity.
This is my go-to pizza beer. It tastes incredible with pizza.
