Dark amber color, a bit darker than most triples. Off-white head, large at first, but falls back to a persistent 1/8". Heavy lacing on the glass. This is a good looking beer!

Caramel aroma, biscuit, with a bit of lemon.

Taste is slightly tart, which is a surprise at first, but not unpleasant. Quite malty. Noticeable hop bitterness, and alcohol is apparent... Not masked.

Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Nice mouthfeel.

A very enjoyable beer, but, probably the most un-triple-like triple I've ever had!

I'm not too sure how to address the American beer brethren, and i'm not well versed in the finer details of beer reviewing. This is a relatively cheap and very serious offering. Of a dark golden / amber color, the foam can be a bit uneven rather than perfectly level (which i find appealing), a hoppy taste. The strong alcohol content doesn't overwhelm the brew. What to say, this is a beer i quite like and would recommend to triple-beer lovers without an afterthought.

Golden orange colour with a decent head of foam that retains quite well. Smell of fruits and yeast with some alcohol. The taste is dominated by the alcohol however. Other flavours (fruits, malt) are pushed to the background. Alcohol gives a stingy mouth feel as well, no smoothness or pleasant warmth. Pretty disappointing, especially since Maredsous' dubbel is awesome and this is Duvel Moortgat we're talking about.

Blind Tasting Tripel Project of Fall 2015
L clear amber, medium amout and size of bubbles, coarse white fast disappearing head
S toasted malts, boozy, phenolic undertone
T toasted malts, boozy, ends bitter
F medium body, pretty substantial for a Tripel
O Surprisingly malt forward Tripel that dares also on the bitterness. Alternative take on a Tripel but not in a way I would like it

I just enjoyed a beer that said "Best by 5/2015." It's 10/2015, FYI. I'm listening to Bitches Brew by Miles Davis as I drink this.

This beer was bought three years ago to the day and cellared in a 55 degree, climate controlled basement for three years, so I think it's okay that I missed the "best by" date.

L - Pours a copper beauty with one inch of frothy, light head. Excellent lacing from beginning to end. A pretty beer.

S - Sweet, yeasty smell with notes of dark fruits. A little bottley at first, but subsided into traditional Belgian smells.

T - Sweet, malty front with heavy carbonation on the aftertaste. Dark fruits throughout, and even bubblegum (I dare say). It's not incredible, but it's delicious nonetheless.

F - Coating and rich. Feels great, tbh.

Overall - This was fun, and an experimental one in that I waited a bit longer than they recommend, even though I cellared it under prime conditions. It was delicious to drink, and although not the best Belgian beer I've had, (and even a bit pricey for it's quality at $4.29 a bottle), it is overall a well done beer. It's hard to compete with the big names in this style, but it holds its own.
