3.5/5  rDev -8.6%

3.9/5  rDev +1.8%

Appearance: 4.5 | Smell: 3.75 | Taste: 4 | Mouthfeel: 3.75 | Overall: 3.75

A: The beer is light hazy golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation along with lots of particulates; the rising bubbles churn the particulates in a circular pattern, similar to a lava lamp. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity esters and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, having flavors of apple and pear esters along with notes of yeast and slight hints of alcohol and spices.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Bits of dryness are noticeable.
O: This beer manages to do a good job hiding most of the alcohol from the taste but it is a slow sipper.

Serving type: bottle

Pours hazy amber-gold beer with decent white head, good retention. Aroma is more malty, less fruity (peaches), unlikely spicy, likely yeasty. Flavour is heavy, full of alcohol, rather flat and abominable. It's actually hard to evaluate the beer correctly due to lack of balance. Low drinkability and common impression.

A: A pale apricot yellow in color, hazy with little chunks of yeasty goodness. Huge soft and full white head.

S: Lovely smell. Light and fruity with some lovely berry aromas. A touch of caramel sweetness with raisins finsihing out the aroma.

T: Sweet with plenty of fruity notes as well as a touch of clove. There is certainly a little bit of a tartness to it, but the tartness blends well with the Belgian yeast flavors. Slight alcohol flavor.

M: Light and crisp on the palate, with a blistering amount of carbonation. The only real negative is that there is a fairly harsh linger on this..

O: Overall good, but the harsh finish is a real damper on this brew for me.

Goliath Triple. 33cl bottle (06/2016) into a tulip. Pale golden yellow color. Big fluffy white head with good lacing and ok retention, settled to a thin lacy foam. On the nose sweet bready malts, earthy yeast and some fruit and citrus. Tasted of sweet bready malts and pepper. Finished dry with slight hop bitterness and a long lasting peppery taste. Became sweeter as it warmed up. Medium-light mouthfeel with stingy carbonation in the end. No alcohol taste. Not the best tripel I've tasted but not bad.

Slightly different than a lot of others in the style, this resembles Duvel with its clear golden color. It's not a bright gold, more of a faded dingy gold, but doesn't have the same orange hues a lot of other Belgians do. The head is thick and retains well. Extremely bright white color. Foamy. Thick lace gradually slides down the glass leaving a heavy spotting.

Classic for the style with plenty of pear, green apple, green grape and pepper spice all vying for attention. Smells a bit sweeter that others. Slightly bready, but malts and hops take a back seat.

Champagne notes. Pear and pepper fight for control. Bready, but also some malt hints appear. Hops are merely a bit player. Alcohol makes a cameo late.

Something is lacking. It needs a bit more body for something so strong. Not really light bodied, but not quite medium either. Carbonation is strong in the finish, but the beer feels a bit flat up front. Spicy finish, and it seems the hops finally show with some savory bits near the swallow.

Good, but not great. Has most of the Belgian bases covered, just a rough spot here or there prevents it from being world class like many of its breathren.

Brasserie Des Géants' Goliath, Belgian Tripel. 9% ABV.

A: Very active carbonation. Two fingers of head, with big bubbles. Fades fairly quickly. Slightly-amber yellow with tons of tiny grey flecks. Almost clear in the dimple.

S: Straw/hay. Faint citrus. Slight sweetness.

T/MF: Well carbonated. Bitter grassy flavor. Hoppy bitterness towards the back.

Really, I do not see what people see in this beer. It seems like more of a hop head's tripel.

Poured from a 750mL bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
