I like trying all types of beers so I decided to buy a 6 pack of this new beligum trippel. It was without a doubt the most distasteful beer I have ever drank, I would rather have milwaukee's best then this. It has a strong taste of coriander and an alcoholic burn in your stomach from the high alcohol content. I was very highly dissapointed in this beer, so much so I made an account because of all the high ratings it has gotten! It has a floral taste like you are drinking flowers with coriander spice in it, all in all I would never recommend this to anyone! I don't pour it into glasses as I feel it destroys some of the carbonation, so I drank it straight from the bottle- regardless I had to go get another six pack after the first bottle. I do not recommend this to anyone, nor can I imagine why it is even produced and sold at local shops. But if you like your stomach burning and drinking flowers, go for it!

12oz bottle with no date. from the folly pack

look is a amber orange with a small scummy head. smell is light wheat, very light bubblegum, kinda smells like the ymca (faint chlorine, cleaning solution). taste is deep. at first it's cloying, wheat and grass give way to the named coriander, and it finishes like sweet peach incense. the feel is slightly syrupy, cloying only at the beginning.

this is a flavorful ale with well hidden alcohol. if youre trying to get smashed while drinking good swill, this would be a great choice.

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

Type: 12 oz bottle
Glass: Chalice
Price: ~$9 for a 6-pack
From: Meijer in Ann Arbor

Appearance: darker slightly orangish yellow. Thin foamy white head that faded rather quickly to a lacing on the top and sides

Smell: wheaty, along with small hints of banana, coriander and maybe a few other spices

Taste: like the nose but better. a nice full body of wheat along with banana, coriander, cloves maybe a touch of bitterness at the end

Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp. a little dry and bitter aftertaste. warming sensation too

Overall: For what it is its quite good. a easy find, low price, delicious and drinkable beer. Also a refreshing american style tripel. I could drink a few of these in a fairly short sitting, which is great for a beer around 8%. Definitely a beer that is worth a try if you haven't had it before.
