From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue IV:
Part of Boulevard Brewing Co.'s Smokestack Series. Pours with a quick-brimming off-white foam with a sufficient head retention as the lacing sticks to the glass quite well. Nearly crystal clear with a glowing pale golden color. Peppery alcohol, hint of tropical fruit, faint white chocolate and a little bit of medicinal phenol in the nose. Moderate crisp body is extremely fluffy with lots of rolling carbonation which is par for the style. Maltiness sets the tone with a strong foothold of light bready and doughy biscuit flavor, both the phenols and hop bitterness balance with herbal and sharp accents. The alcohol comes off a little spicy but only slightly warming, it's a bit tame which is great, but deceiving. Dried fruitiness middle to end with apricot, pineapple, mango. The finish is close to bone dry.
Very impressive, looks like someone did their homework before jumping feet first into this Belgian style. Kudos to Boulevard for this most excellent Tripel.

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.
