look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Apperance: Golden yellow colour, visibly highly carbonated much like champagne. Cloudly swirls through a pretty clear looking beer. Very light and abundant bubbly head, very stable and nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Sweet fragrant aroma, sweet honey, grapes, mild wiffs of alcohol balancing the sweetness.

Taste: Very smooth forward bitterness quickly and smoothly flows into the sweet pale malts and grape like flavors which bounce on the tongue. Finishes with a distinct boozy finish at the back of the throat. Hints of sour apples and apple cider.

Mouthfeel: Very highly carbonated, flavor bounces over the tongue and disctint smooth mouth warming feeling in the finish that hits the back of the throat.

Quicky review:

Nice thick head three fingers and good dissipation leaving a nice film and lacing.

I love the smell...definite yeast and fruit. The down side is that a bit of alcohol comes through.

The alcohol does not come as prominent in the taste...fruits and grains with the yeast come come through.

Good mouth feel...full carbonation and body.

Overall this is a nice tripel. I enjoyed it on a cool summer day and I could have had a few more.

750ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $9.00

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove/coriander, apples, honey

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with some apples and some clove/coriander. There is also some banana and some honey. It ends with fruity and boozy aftertaste.

Overall - A good beer that has some nice refreshing fruity flavours but it also packs a punch. Not something that will blow you away, but a good solid triple that is worth trying a few times.

Beer is golden orange with a mountain of white head. Absurdly large, and it just doesn't go anywhere.

Smells quite dry, if that is a scent. Spicy notes, slight honey, bread and light fruits.

Taste is nice. Similar to the nose, I get a soft bready flavour with honey, as well as light fruits (perhaps a bit of banana and apple). A notable spicy flavour, white pepper.

Nice mouthfeel. Very smooth and soft. Full bodied, moderate to large carbonation.

Overall, a good tripel.

A - Pours a murky golden orange colour, thumb of head with solid retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Fruity cloves, yeast esthers, hints of honey, bananas and a bready wheat flavour lingers.

T - Much like the nose, fruity cloves, bready wheat, hints of banana and some boozy sweetness. Bready notes linger with the honey sweetness.

M - Lighter bodied, smooth and a touch of heat on the finish.

O - A tasty tripel, easy drinking and lighter and fruitier than some others I have tried. Dangerously drinkable, surprisingly delicious and well worth seeking.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours an underripe lemon hue with significant carbonation producing a massive 3-4 inch bubbly white head. Carbonation continues to feed the head creating excellent retention.
S: Light citrus (lemon), grass, spices (clove, cinnamon), peach, and a note of fresh belgian yeast. Wafting in and out there is a hint of barnyard funk that adds a pleasant level of complexity to the aroma.
T: Soft lemon, brighter orange citrus, clove, musty barnyard funk, pear, white grape, and fresh and active belgian yeast. Very refreshing taste. A note of vanilla emerges with warming.
M: Initially soft and almost creamy feel (imparted from the head). This quickly turns toward prickly effervescence from the carbonation. Finishes soft and with a bit heavier feel...also a bit dry with hop spiciness. Lingers and matures nicely on the palate. An element of soft sweetness throughout.
D: Due to the strong effervescence, this one drinks like a citrus-infused champagne. Extremely drinkable even with an ABV of 10.5%. Nicely complex and yet easily approachable. An excellent example of style. Seek it out!

3/29/14:
A: Bottle still opens with a loud pop and the appearance remains the same as above. Time has not diminished this one! (4.5)
S: See above...literally has not changed over the past year! (4.5)
T: See above, except the spices are taking a more dominant role (clove, cinnamon, etc). (4.5)
M: Again, see above. (4.5)
D: Wow! This one has not let up over the past year. I'm even more impressed with this one now than even last year. (4.5)
