4/5 rDev +3.4%
- triple golden ale served in duvel chalice.
A: (4.0) Even with the most gentlest of pours at a 45 degree angle, a monstrous head develops with a dull sea-shell coloring consuming the majority of volume in the vessel. Wild yeast. The head had a pourous texture, sponge like, standing a staggering 3+ fingers in height with a great resilience. A glass consuming effervesce rages within a glazed pumpkin orange coloring with a dense nature. Fat chunks of foamy lace adhere in a splatter fashion on the vessel's walls.
S: (3.5) Wheaty-orange scent, soft, maybe diluted beneath the foam monster. Touch of dry barnyard wood, tart yeastiness, with some dried wheat. A bit of candy-orange sweetness arrives late.
T: (4.0) Flavor was fruity, pear with some lightly dry candy orange sweetness. Dry wheat, fruit of apricot, apple and canteloupe. Banana yeastiness, spicy hop and alcohol warmth.
M: (3.75) Light mouthful, dry fruitiness, creamy wheat, soft feel and soft carbonation factor.
O: (4.0) Overall its been way to long since i've enjoyed a good tripel. where have you been. Spot on interpretation and yeast character, fruity, with an solid outstanding flavor. Must try.

3.14/5 rDev -18.9%
Appearance: dark straw yellow hinting towards orange. a nice foamy 3 finger white head that fades slowly and leaves just a little bit of lacing behind 4/5
Smell: banana, strong clove, peppery phenols, alcohol. maybe a little bit of extra fruit, possibly citrus. 3/5
Taste: opens with harsh spicy phenols, along with overly strong cloves. some banana and a little bit of citrus. nobles hops are present towards the end. strong alcohol. 3/5
Mouthfeel: pretty significant. ends a bit bitter. fairly dry as well 3.5/5
Overall: its got all the flavors of a trippel but on the harsh side. the alcohol is too present even for the relatively low abv. Maybe you could argue to cellar out the harshness. I think there are way too many great trippels out there for me to give that a try. 3.14/5

4.08/5 rDev +5.4%
A: This poured an opaque dark straw with lots of white head.
S: It smelled like grassy hops and spicy Belgian yeast, with sweet candi sugar and earthy caramel.
T: It tasted like grassy hops and fresh cut hay, with some spicy Belgian yeast and sweet candi sugar and earthy caramel. It had a clean earthy sweet aftertaste.
M: It was oily with lots of fine natural carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was a great tripel, with delicate and delicious scent and taste. The body was just right, and the finish was smooth with well hidden alcohol. So it was easy to drink, although could be sipped. Probably not for aging, perfectly fit to drink fresh. Solid brew.

Fantastic tripel. I loved it. Really great representation of the style, yet still having a unique taste to it to set it apart. I hope this is not a one time brew , because I'd love to have a four pack of this in my cellar along with other tripels I like to have around on a rotating basis - Unibroue, Chimay, Weyerbacher, Westmalle, Gulden Draak. Definitely try it if you like Belgian style tripels.
