Another exquisite Belgian Tripel. (How do they do that?)
In addition to the typical malt/yeast complexities of citrus fruit, the Smells of spices offer an interesting backdrop to the main show. The Taste makes more prominent the spices, maybe some pepper; but all that yeasty fruit is still playful. Then very quietly towards the end, this refreshing sour peeps in. Feel is unusually soft for so much going on and finishes slightly dry. Alcohol is barely noticeable.
OA: I for sure will have this again as I couldn't unpack everything I was tasting. But this I know: Vicaris Tripel is well put together. No matter how hard this is to find, it will be a particular pleasure to drink again.

Chill hazed gold colored ale with a big white colored head.

Smells sweet with the scent of apples cinnamon. Sweet with a peach scent. Scent of sandalwood and cork.

Starts out sweet and fruity with a caramel after taste. Taste of apples and peaches. Mildly woody not a lot of coriander. Honey malt taste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall good but don't pay a lot for it.

Pours with a three finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color, with some floaties. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Belgian yeast nose and flavor is fruity, slightly sweet and smooth. Higher ABV is hidden. $8.45 for a 330ml bottle at Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH

An average tripel, nice to look at and taste, but nothing exceptional about it. Hazy golden body with creamy white head. Smells slightly sour,hoppy. Taste is light malt. Overall mouthfeel is creamy. Not too bad....

Sampled at cafe Gollem in Antwerp on 30SEP15. The 0.33l bottle cost €3.90, and had a best-by date of 10MAR18.

Served in a chalice, it was a hazy, bright golden hue. Head was white, creamy and mousse-like, and left A-1 lacing behind. Carbo within was fine and steady. Aroma was a bit mild, with some crackery action and yeasty spiciness. Had a medium body, and was a touch light and airy on the tongue.

Flavor had lots going on. Start with some crackery, bready malt, then add some pear and green apple. A hint of clove was present, with a spicy pepper and yeast finish. Got better as it went down. Real nice, indeed! Prosit!!

From the 330 ml. stubby bottle. Sampled on August 4, 2015.

Hazy, heady orange pour with yeast sediments floating around the glass.

The aroma has a lovely ester of Belgian pale malts, biscuit, pear, apple, berry, coriander, and pepper.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is sweet, spicy, and fruity with a nice spicy bitterness to close it out.
