Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Hazy amber color, with a ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit hop nose, flavor is mellow grapefruit hops and caramel. $1.95 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

it might not be totally fair to say i strongly dislike this brew, because my guess it that its a bit old, which would account for the stale flavors in this, but the bottle i drank tonight is downright off. blonde to brass in color, heady as the dickens. is smells like a tripel, estery yeast and a tripartite grain bill as per usual, but there is a rancid sort of decaying bitterness to it that is just comes in faintly. the taste show it way more, especially on the tail end, and its pretty yucky all things considered. i still have the sweetness, the fizz, the body, and the booze, but what this beer has turned into on the shelf over i dont know how long is really nasty. just another one of those belgian beers that i am sure travels really poorly. will revisit if i ever get to go to this beer mecca, but in its american form, its pretty ugly stuff.

Slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium head with medium retention.
Light aroma for a tripel, sweet malt and some sourness to it. Dry hopping really didn't work here.
Taste is different than usual tripels. Sweet malt with hints of brown sugar, pine, sweet oranges, and lots of spices with a decent amount of hops.
Dry and bitter aftertaste which is good for a change for tripels.
Medium body with low but effervescent carbonation, 9% ABV is there but perfectly inserted.
A different tripel, less complex but also a bit more fun at the hop side.

Shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff.

The beer is hazy dark yellow with a half inch of soapy white head. The aroma brings yeast, malt, light spice, floral notes. The flavor brings a touch of banana, grain. Really dry finish with some hop bitterness. Earthy and a bit abrasive. Kind of rough. This is ok.

Appearance: This is your Belgium classic swampy yeasty trippel look with a nice white head with plenty of lacing.

SAromas: Nice malty smell, that's what I like, with a hint of orange peel.

Taste:Caramel sweet, malty goodness. Very good.

Texture is smooth nice very drinkable.

Classic tripel on the sweet side may lack a bit of balance for some. Reminds me of the great trippel Karmeliet. A good trippel almost a home run! Would be an excellent dessert beer at the bistro to roll. What music? Well, I suggest Fogerty's Centerfield!

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: deep golden hue bordering on orange with a medium haze and a strong effervescence. Head is three fingers of frothy ivory foam with a thin lace. Not too bad.

Smell: dank, sweet malt aroma which is more grainy than fruity in any way. Not a lot of complexity, but it is within the style's parameters.

Taste: sweet, grainy malt with a bit of an alcohol finish. Graininess is pretty strong; it's not off-putting, per se, it just feels wrong. Not a bad beer, but kind of odd for a tripel.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge-ass carbonation and concomitantly huge creaminess. Ba dow!

Overall: this beer is a bit odd. It just seems unfinished or something. Not bad, but not really worth going after unless you're really into tripels.
