look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

APPEARANCE - Pours opaque light brown, with a one-finger head that dissipates in about a minute. A little lacing.

SMELL/AROMA - Herbaceous, very sweet, piney.

TASTE - Quite sweet and mildly piney. Lacks ale bitterness. ABV not well hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Not much carbonation, viscous and syrupy.

OVERALL - I really like Imperial IPAs better than Tripels. This one is cloyingly sweet and a bit too boozy for me.

One of my favorite Belgian breweries. High carbonation, medium to low head. Nice amber color. Smells like bread, nuts, caramel and a tiny floral. It has some noticeable alcohol aroma. They don’t hide the strong taste of alcohol. At room temp the alcohol is even more noticeable and with a flat head. I still prefer the Rouge and the Cuvee the Chateau

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Pale golden, clear, small head, faded fairly quickly,
looked very lively, very bubbly throughout.

S: Yeast, esters, apple, some booze.

T: Yeasty, fruity esters, bittersweet, hint of apple, did a reasonable
job of hiding the booze.

M: Crisp, well carbonated, light body for the high abv.

O: Thumbs up from me on this one, not bursting with diverse flavors
but its what I’d like a tripel to be.
