Look: deep hazy orange, impressive rocky white head that stays forever. Sticky lacing. Great retention.

Aroma: a bit muted. Seemed like sour green apple, funky, leathery, some sweet malt and that typical belgian yeast smell.

Taste: followed the nose, with an extra ripe pear flavour. Malty but mainly yeasty.

Mouthfeel: full and a bit boozy all around.

Overall: liked it but for some reason I've found it similar to Orval, which is weird, as they're not the same style.

From a large bottle best by 1/2019. Amber color with lots of white fluffy head. Yeast and banana smell. Medium feel. Taste is a little sour with yeast, banana, and pepper flavors. Very good, hits all the main points of the style.

Tap pour at Busters on 28th, Mpls MN.
Cloudy, amber colored body. Only a one finger off white head with the pour, which settles to thin cap.
Subdued aroma of yeast esters, with ripe banana and darker fruit.
First flavor is quite sweet, with ripe banana, which transitions to more sour dark fruit such as unsweetened cherry and plum. Also sour from the yeast, with lots of spices, dark pepper and coriander.
Medium to thick mouth feel, very smooth sensation. Good carbonation.
Tasty tripel with the added bit of sour toward the end.

330ml bottle from Delirium Café, Brussels (€4.40):
Strong & complex stuff from Duvel here, this one opened up with some nice floral flavours & fruit esters that included apples, bananas & pear with the banana probably the strongest of the bunch & providing a lot of sweetness alongside the caramel malts. There was plenty of spice & a warming alcohol feel further on & despite being slightly weaker on the nose than anticipated, the beer was a well-balanced & easy-going one that's well worth trying.

Review: 330ml, a nice stubby brown bottle of Maredsous 10 Tripel: ABV.10% vol

Really dig the small brown bottle and the label, looks lovely. Simple enough but well designed and appealing. The beer is bottle conditioned as well, all adding to the appeal.

Has on the label it is an “extra strong beer”. Well it is a Tripel, so ok, lets see!

On pour we get a nice frothy white head and an orange coloured beer. The head is great, pretty big and very frothy, perhaps too much so. This all leaves some good lacing.

Colour goes cloudy, very cloudy. Head maintains. Decent enough on the eye.

Found the aroma was very strong on the nose, a fruity smell that was piercing and intense but a very particular fruit, banana I guess, is a nice smell, pleasant.

Taste, get the “particular” taste of a tripel straight away, a bit sour and hits you at the start.
Typical Belgian taste. Very hoppy and sweet.

Nice, I like it, very tasty. Has all the typical tastes, very clearly the coriander, cloves, the malts and fruits, particularly banana.

I know as a tripel its meant to hide the alcohol content but fuck me I found it a very strong beer, and its just as well I only had the two small bottles or I’d be well drunk after a few.

Strong and yeasty but it is well balanced, tasty and easy enough to drink.

Not bad for the style, but that style, a tripel Belgian with high alcohol content and full of great flavours, yeah! But good clean beer with a full bodied taste, didn’t have a head the next day! I will return!

for me was tasteless.. There are a way better tripel in the market and cheaper. The only think I could say it has a good head.. For me "look" is the least important thing in a beer..

Forgot to check the vintage. Poured into a non-descript hotel tumbler.

Pour: deep golden color with a nice one to two finger head.

Nose: some banana, a little sour, spices, mostly pepper.

Taste: yeasty sour spices, with black pepper coming through as it warms. Sweetness like an over ripe banana. Really liked it but drank this after a St Bernardus ABT 12 and was feeling pretty good!

Mouthfeel: lots of carbonation but not unpleasant. Pretty full, a little syrupy. very nice.

Overall: I really liked this; more than I expected. The situation probably helped but I’d go back to this beer for a winter sipper or anyplace other than a hot beach. Would pair well with a hearty or spicy meal.

Pours an orange color with a thin white head. Candy fruit aromas, possibly some fennel. Taste is pungent and sour at first, then it gives way to an overpowering sweetness, but the sweetness somehow tastes artificial. I realize they don’t actually brew their beer with Splenda, but that’s the effect I get.

It pours much darker than a traditional Tripel, almost brown, and with a very small head for a Belgian-made Tripel. Very boozy even when it's fairly cold.
