Pretty good Triple but very expensive. Excellent color, smell, feel though I've had better tasting ones.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Orange-Gold with a 1 finger froth. Hazy with good head retention throughout the glass. Leaves nice lacing

S: Sweet citrus, white grape, butter, vanilla, yeasty, sugary

T: Apple, vanilla, dates, citrusy, alcoholic, bready

M: Creamy and full body, alcohol leaves tongue tingling, but easy to drink and not filling. bitter finish

Overall, nice, sweet and creamy. The only problem i had was the alcohol. For the style, I would want something with morespice than booze

11.2 FL OZ bottle.

Poured out a inch and half thick chunky white head. It reduced to about half an inch while leaving a trail of thick lace. Every sip revealed a new ring of lace. The color is a hazy gold. The aroma has the typical Belgian smell. Exceptional mouthfeel in every aspect. Total balance of bitterness, carbonation, texture, Hops, Body, Finish. The ABV is high, but drinkability will be also. I can't believe how drinkable this is. Gentle warming of the stomach. First sip gave me the chills because I couldnt believe how good it is. haha, I also can't believe how fast I am drinking this! Taste has just the right balance of hops and malt.This is like sex in a bottle.I rarely give out 5's and this beer is just about all 5's. I would like to see a more complex aroma meaning it is a bit one-sided. 90% done with this and I am feeling the ABV.This has been an absolute pleasure to drink. I will try this again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured a slightly hazy and peachy auburn , with a solid creamy half inch offwhite foam, lots of lace. Looks great!

Smell: estery and yeasty with some peach and mango fruitiness , also a hint of yellow apple, im intrigued...

Taste: The fruitiness of the aroma makes a short appearance in the flavor, with some more slightly peachy flavor , this is soon taken over by a strong dose of phenolic qualities, some perfumey esters, astringency, and some almost peppery hop bitterness towards the finish- which has some boozy alcohol in the nose and is dry.

Mouthfeel: kind of creamy from the carbonation , with a dry finish.

Drinkibility/Notes: An decent tripel (better after i let it warm a bit) but certainly not the tripel for me with all the other great ones out there. The aroma and especially the appearance outshine the flavor profile of this bold brew... the last part of the sip is almost too... something?

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Deep gold color. Very good clarity. Effervescent but long-lasting, creamy, white head. Fades to the classic Belgian lacing.

S: Opens with a nice light banana esters typical of style upon the maltiness of the Belgian pale malt and candi. Lacks the complex spiciness/clove scents. No pepper notes or citrus/pale fruit esters. Hops seem mineral like not floral or spicy as in other Tripels.

T: Honestly not much better than the aroma. I drink Tripels for the complexity and challenge of the flavors. This beer provides none. After the open banana esters and malt sweetness, little flavors follow. The beer ends a bit tart then an earthy bitterness from the hops.

M: Light effervescent. Carbonation gives a creaminess.

D: Not really worth the price. I would rather explore American Tripels then pay for another of these.

Light Amber with a huge white head

Smells and tastes like sweet Carmel fruit and bananas

Alcohol is very well hidden easy to drink

Overall pretty good, maybe not what I was expecting though, so I have lower scores on smell and taste, not a fan of the banana taste.

A - Very nice gold with a tinge of light red; decent head but w/minimal lace. Nice stream of carbonation flowing from bottom center of my Duvel tulip glass.

S - Wood, vanilla, some alcohol.

T/M - Lots going on here. Banana, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, Belgian candy for sure and even a touch of light sourness on the finish. Very creamy with excellent carbonation lined up in support.

D - At 10%ABV, it's tough to get beyond one, but where there's a will, there's a way. Yum.
