Poured at fridge temp. Pours a nice transparent orange with tons of white head. Overflowed a bit even. The nose is full of oranges, wheat, an herbal note, pears, and a slight hoppy bitterness, and a soft kiss of caramel. The taste is great. Caramel upfront, with grass, wheat, honey, orange, pear, apples, and banana. Really nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the ABV is slightly detectable. Overall, a great beer.

Solid beer, define tastes of banana-y cloves. Decent mouth feel, could have stood for it to be a bit heavier. Balanced sweetness. Bitter finish. A bit sharp on the stomach.
Overall good. But pales in comparison to it's competition among native Belgian abbij (and Trappist/ITA) brethren.

Best by date: "Best before the end of 01-2021".

A - Dark gold pour that's crystal clear and a rocky, billowy layer of foam on top. Carbonation is moderate and steady.

S - Aroma is caramel malt forward with very little citrus on the nose.

T - Taste follows the nose. Caramel malt boozy base from start to finish, some light citrus tries to poke through but gets knocked down almost immediately. There is some peppery spice going on as well.

M - Thick body with prickly carbonation.

O - This beer is definitely over the hill. Will be more than happy to revisit this review with a fresher bottle to be completely fair to the brewer and the beer. It's pretty much a mess at this point in time.

On a warm Friday afternoon as I was looking to jump from the precipice of a long week, this beer emerged as a delightful golden citrusy goblets of magic and mystery, beckoning me ever deeper into her pool of thirst quenching bubbly goodness

pint bottle with best before date of July 2021

pours a clear dark gold body with a orange-tinged cream colored head that is rocky and frothy with a moderately low retention and leaves patches of thick lacing that have only a mild stickiness. the head settles down to a thin cap within a few minutes

aroma is an aggressive yeastiness that carries clove and banana with it, along with a bready caramel malt. a little bit of pear, green apple, and honey in there as well.

taste follows the nose in a pretty straight forward fashion. adds a slather of booze to the mix.

mouthfeel is high carbonation and medium-thick body, goes fairly smooth with carbo prickles and booze throughout. finishes slightly dry with a tad of bubblegum plaster after-taste that only lasts for a few moments before dissipating.

overall:
solid and fairly complex Tripel that has a very aggressive combo of yeast and booze heat. it's tangy, bready, and has it's pleasant parts, but they are nearly constantly grappling with the spicy yeast and booze dance happening the entire sip. for some people, this is the bees knees...but I would never recommend that this be someone's first dip into the Tripel world, or any Belgian style world for that matter. it *is*, however, a great example of how aggressive and bold yeast can be used to a very positive way. I personally like this one a lot, and it stands out for sure, but it is far from my go-to or favorite Belgian (or Trip) to share, unless it's with someone who is well versed in the style. this particular bottle came across as a yeasty highly carbonated dry white wine, to put it as boorish as possible.
I will say that I have had several bottles of this brew which were not quite as intense on the yeast front. that being said, this review lines up with the majority of my experiences with the brew over the last near-decade.

From notes – Jan 14 2016
11.2oz bottle – Societe brewing goblet style glass

Dark sienna orange hue with a healthy froth of ivory white head and decent retention efforts that leaves behind some sticky bubbles and lace across the glass. I get lots of golden raisin and fruity malts with light candi sugar. Grainy bread and some dusty esters little banana and clove but nothing overly sharp or phenolic.
This is big and rich but so smooth with just a hint of alcohol spice considering. Just terrific. Good drying arrives at the finish keeping things light and frothy on the palate.

This is a very rich and complex triple but with such a smooth balance that lets you know it is master crafted.
One of the better triples I have experienced

Missing some fresh citrusy notes that I like in Triple. Very malty, chewy in general. Not so dry in a finish like it should. Tasty beer in general, but if somebody would like to try a Triple - it should not be his first choice.

Look: Clear amber, white head.

Smell: Booze, yeast, some sweetness, banana, spices.

Taste: The taste reminds me a bit of a dry wine. Yeast, some bittersweet fruitiness, surprisingly smooth for a 10%.

Feel: Normal carbonation, leaves a fairly dry mouthfeel. Medium body.

Overall: Not my absolute favorite, but a solid Tripel.

330ml bottle

Pours about a finger of white head into a chalice. Looks very lacey. Body is quite dark for a tripel. Dark orange, hues of amber. Carbonation looks medium. Head retention was decent, faded after a few minutes, leaving a small film, and heavy lacing above the body. So far it looks pretty nice.

Nose certainly has more of a dubbel feel to it, figs, plum, some candi sugars. Some brighter ester notes, but not any prominent classic fruity light esters; no clove, etc. Kind of champagne yeast undertone. Not too sweet, just slightly, somewhat dry. Certainly borrowing characteristics from a few Belgian styles, in my opinion. Nice nose though regardless.

Flavor is ridiculously smooth for 10% Definitely some fig/plum notes, though not dominant. A little banana/clove action on the flavor. While not too candi sweet, the malt and sugar profile certainly borrows more from a dubbel build, than a tripel. Again, borrowing things from both styles. I'm not blown away by the flavor, it's good, but for 10% this is much more impressive.

The mouthfeel is somewhat sweet, as mentioned, but not over the top. Somewhat dry at times. Carbonation is about medium. Body is about medium as well. Basically zero booze presence. A little twang, but that's it.

The drinkability is ridiculously good. There is just zero inclination that this is 10% in the flavor or feel, really impressive.

Overall, not blown away here in terms of flavor, but it's a solid beer. There are no off flavors, and it's tasty. Style seems a tiny bit off, but it makes up for it ten fold with its alcohol to drinkability ratio.

The appearance turned out quite nice. Head was nice and hung around for long enough. Lacing turned out pretty stellar. Good looking beer.
