4.36/5  rDev -0.7%

On tap at De Garre.

Comes out with a voluminous slightly off-white? head. Michael Jackson lacing aka the best.

Peppery spice, pear, some sweetness, a little flowery.

Yeasty, peppery spice, light fruit.

So smooth. Carbonation is great on the tongue. Medium-full body. Some alcohol heat is present.

This is one of the house beers on tap at Staminee De Garre in Bruges.

Appearance: A golden pour with a medium and very rich looking white head.

Smell: Medium nose with a very lemony and malty kick to it. Somewhat flowery and herbal.

Taste: Again, a vert floral taste with a slight bitterness and herbal character. Some nice maltiness here that helps turn the corner to a semi-sweet finish. A pinch of sweet-bread in there somehwere as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer w/good maltiness and fullness. Grainy and floarl mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Ahhhh, it was worth a try. Half decent beer, worth trying once.

I had this beer at Staminee De Garre. It was served in a cool glass with a little plate of cheese.

A. A light golded color with a thick beautiful head. Also some nice lacing as the beer in the glass gets lower.

S. A fruity malty smell. Also the alcohol smell was present.

T. This beer was great. Hoppier than other tripples that I have tried. Spicy and fruity with an obvious alcohol taste.

M. Nice hop bite and dry finish. The alcohol is very warming on the palate.

D. I thought that this beer was very drinkable. However, my wife failed to finish hers so, unfortunately, I had to finish it for her. The alcohol isn't very well hidden in this beer but for some reason that taste helps the final product.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured golden yellow with a three finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, fruit, alcohol, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, fruit, alcohol, floral, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. As far as the style goes this one was pretty nice. I wish there would have been another touch of complexity going on with it. But what was present was still quite nice and fairly well balanced. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance and see it on tap.

On tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville NC

A- pours clear and golden with a small creamy white head with lace that sticks to the sides the entire way down as it settles

S- lots of fruity aromas up front of dried apple, ripe pear, peach and banana. Fresh baked bread aroma kicks in mid-palate with some peppery notes and clove. Earthy aromas and wet hay finish out the aroma

T- dry and fruity up front with big notes of banana and clove, lightly toasted fresh bread notes kick in, adding some sweet doughy notes. Peppery notes with citrus, lemongrass and hay close out the flavor, leaving a dry finish

M- medium body and carbonation, super creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish

O- sweet and creamy with nice banana and pear notes. Definitely one of the better Belgian Tripel's that I've had a chance to try

This poured with a hazy apricot orange color and a head with tons of life.

The aroma was sadly simple but overly fragrant. I caught strong banana and clove or peppercorn but that was about it.

The flavor is unlike the nose as its vastly complex with honey, maple syrup, yeast, clove, sweet green Apple and pear. The finish is a bit twangy as it there's a sour note.

The feel is slick and full but the carbonation is fuller and expansive.

Never been a huge fan of Tripels but I must say the flavor of this is amongst the most complex I've seen and it makes this well worth the try.
