look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance is a nice honey with a one finger head. 15 minutes later, there is still quite a bit of lace. Smell is very faint in general, some white grape, yeast, biscuit. Tournay`s taste is a bit sweet with fruits present and some bitterness. MF is leaning towards soft with less carbonation than I expected. It actually takes some characteristics from a farmhouse ale. An interesting beer from what I presume is a relatively small production brewer.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.

Call me a gentleman today... *ahem* This stuff pours a cloudy golden-straw topped by a finger of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, light grass, light flowers, and light white bread. The taste brings in more of the same, though everything is stronger in its own right, especially the flowers, and there's a vague sense of citrus rind pervading the proceedings. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, if this is truly a tripel, it's a pretty sad example of the style. If it's just a Belgian pale ale (this is my perception going in), it's a bit better, but it's still a fairly boring beer. I get that it's meant to be a "pure" brew, one completely without extraneous spicing and whatnot, but it winds up being a bland little experience.

Purchased at State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD.

Served at about 55 deg. into tulip glass.
Unfortunately upon popping the cap, there was a slight audible noise which is not a good indication. I believe that this was not capped properly and as a result, is completely flat.

Pours light golden in color with very little haze.
Hints of grain, yeast, and green apple fruitiness. Again, the lack of carbonation is really limiting this experience.
Tastes balanced. The hops are very nicely balanced with the malt and the yeast flavors are pretty mild.

Tasted from 11.2oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick but quickly receding white head. Nose of belgian hops, light spices, and some wheat. Flavor is slightly sweet with light hops and wheat notes. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a medium length bitter finish.

This beer is a very cloudy yellow-gold color and sports a decent white head that contributes plenty of lace. The aroma is fruity, with a touch of alcohol, and an annoying distant solvent like smell. The beer has a sharp flavor, a bit of fruit, some mild pale malts, a hint of spice, and some alcohol. The hop presence is fairly low, but there's a decent balancing bitterness. The beer is medium in body, with a slight spritz due to carbonation. Some yeast flavor comes forward in the finish. This isn't a particularly great beer...middle of the road.

A: Pours a hazy gold with a thin, clinging white mousse.

S: Aromas of spicy yeast, candy sugar, and bitter citrus fill the nose.

T: Notes of spicy Belgian yeast dominate the entry, but are quickly followed by flavors of grass, lemon, lime, bitter orange, minerals, straw, and candy sugar. The finish is bitter and lingers for quite some time, presenting a refreshing blend of lemon, lime, and candy sugar flavors underscored by a slight yeast spiciness.

M: Medium-bodied, very dry, and very firm. Carbonation is active. Drinkable, but filling.

O: This is a solid Belgian pale ale, but overall, it's nothing out of the ordinary. This beer is exactly what drinkers expect of the style, but the problem with it is that it does not seem to make much of an effort to exceed those expectations. In the end, Tournay Classic is a good, solid, filling pale ale, but it is hard for me to justify tracking it down again, especially consider that there are many other Belgian ales out there that are much more unique and complex.

Bottle: Poured a deep hazy blond color ale with large foamy head with great retention and perfect lacing. Aroma of Belgian malt with some floral hops and a lightly sweet finish. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet malt with some dry floral hops and a yeasty and bread-like finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no alcohol is apparent. I thought this was a nice example for the style but a yeast is a bit too dominating.

Drank on 3/17/12 @ night

Appearance: Nice opaque sandalwood color with a half inch head good retention and no lacing. Good carbonation.

Smell: Crisp and simple. Not much else too it. For some reason I could not pick out different notes.

Mouthfeel: Nice initial attack with a smooth transition.

Taste: Pretty decent. Not what I expected. Light citrus notes and medium hops taste. Very simple and nothing pronounced.

Overall: A simple belgian, nothing more, nothing less.
