DATE TASTED: November 23, 2013... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: a Game of Thrones reading evening... APPEARANCE: pours a slightly copper, malty golden body; lively effervescence; thick,, foamy two-finger white head that keeps its resilience; lacing is formidable... AROMA: bouquet is light, hoppy, floral with light citrus--mostly peach--and apple as well--quite an air to it!... PALATE: full-bodied; immediately warming at the throat; active and anxious in the teeth--clearly not disguising its intentions...TASTE: grape accents early grant a surprising start; smooth, mellow hops make for a surprisingly casual finish; coriander and some nameless funk round out the flavor...OVERALL: a bright, uplifting strength to this beer lends spirit to the religious overtones of the label; situated among the other beers of this mix pack, the "Best of Belgium" proclamation holds some substance--not the best tripel I've tasted, but more than holds its own...

4.49/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

appearance: Wow just beautiful it is like a perfect combo of everything yes I said perfect. Beautiful hints of amber.

smell: It just hits you perfectly. I would have to say something obscene to fully describe it but wonderful you fall into it. A little bit fruity and aromatic. It is worth it just for the smell

taste: Bold, it hits you with the aroma and bam there you are. A bit fruity like bananas. Has a bit of a bight surprisingly but not to shabby.

mouthfeel: Stays with you in fact the bitters take over for a potent bitter taste long after the sip is gone.

overall: Not bad, I am certainly not disappointed and if this is your type of beer you will be jumping over angry wives to get one. It make me want to try more Belgians if nothing else

Bottle pour at The Belgians Are Coming held in Old Town Newhall in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, yeast, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an aroma that is much better than the flavor in my opinion.
