On tap at the Abbot's Ale House, Cork. Poured into Leffe chalice

A: Kind of cloudy amber in colour, one finger head that retains a film, decent lace. Carbonation not very active.

S: Caramel, biscuit malt, hints of fruit, hints of yeast. Sweet smelling, and quite rich. Good stuff!

T: Caramel here too, right at the front. Nice maltiness to the beer with a biscuit or bready finish, and a great nutty aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

M: It's full-bodied and smooth, lightly fizzy, and rich. Great mouthfeel.

Overall: Great beer. I'll definitely have it again, and I'll be trying the other Maredsous' soon too. That being said, there are better beers in the style, but this is certainly worthy of it's place.

Pours out a clear medium copper color. The head is dense and rocky with superb retention. I'm getting a lot of lacing on this one, looks great. In the nose you get sour apricot, light grains and floral hops, and a Belgium spiciness. Not to mention alcohol. Taste is sweet mostly. Getting some fruits. Fig, apricot, banana. Also picking up yeast and a soft clove spice. Alcohol is again present. The mouth feel is soft and fairly creamy. Carbonation is pleasant. A straight up solid triple. Its a little different then average. Has a bit of sourness to it. Its good stuff none the less.

Amber color with a two finger off white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has peaches, citrus, citrus zest, pepper, yeast, and pale malts. Has a very sweet aroma.

The taste is not as sweet as the aroma suggests, but there is still a good amount of sweetness. There is a lot of alcohol heat, along with peaches, citrus, citrus zest, yeast, and plenty of pepper. More bitter than I would have guessed from the aroma.

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Plenty of sweetness, and bitterness. A little astringent too, at least for a Tripel. A decent Tripel, but not as good as the best.

11.2 ounce stubby bottle into chalice, best by 05/2014. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a thin cap that lasts. Some nice lacing clinging on the glass, with plenty of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of apricot, lemon, pear, biscuit, tart grains, pepper, clove, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Decent aromas but they are pretty faint for a tripel. Taste of apricot, lemon, banana, orange, clove, bread, candi sugar, pear, grape, tart grain, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of citrus, clove, pear, biscuit, candi sugar, and yeast spices on the finish for a while. Nice balance of flavors with decent complexity. Definitely more of a fruity tripel, but is not cloying. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and slick mouthfeel that drinks quite smoothly. Alcohol is well hidden for 10% with a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a very nice and enjoyable Tripel. Good complexity and balance; with nice smoothness.

Simple is not particularly beer, but below average for me.
Little taste to recognize just what flavor and aroma of malt.
The mouthfeel is very nice, huge tingling, but together with the look are this the only two positive things.
I don't think I will drink this anymore.

33 cl bottle poured into Maredsous chalice

A - amber/copper. 1.5 fingers of slightly off-white rocky head. Great retention, thick lacing when it finally receeds.

S - very yeasty, banana bread, spices (cloves, nutmeg)

T - still yeasty but not nearly as much as the nose would suggest. banana and cloves come through. For a 10% abv beer, the alcohol is quite well hidden, slight heat on the very back end.

M - medium-light body with high carbonation which is nice for such a highly alcoholic beer.

O - a good tripel, not quite great but I would have another if it was offered to me. I would not seek it out.

33cL bottle. Brew date: Aug. 5, 2011; best by Aug. 5, 2014. 10% ABV, 16.9 deg. Plato.

Appearance: Yellow-amber color, slightly hazy. Poured with three fingers of rocky head, which had excellent retention. Generous lacing all down the glass.

Smell: Rock candy, yeasty, banana bread, spices.

Taste: Less sweet than I anticipated from the smell. Well balanced sweetness with a noticeable alcohol warming. Fusil alcohol is also present. Spicy, warm, almost thick with flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, delightful on the palate. Just enough carbonation. Long, slightly sweet finish. Slight bitterness with alcohol at the tail end.

Overall: What a great quaff. As it is quite filling, though, one will be enough. But I will have this one again and again. Maybe it's been too long since I had triples, but while enjoying this one I can rank it in the top ten or so that I remember having.

1 pt 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A - Pours a transparent amber/copper color with a rocky, off-white head, 3.5 finger head. The head's soapy in consistency, and retention is absurdly good considering the high ABV. The leaves nice lacing when it does finally recede.

S - The yeast is prominent, though it's not dominant. Well balanced spice and fruit esters abound. Light pilsner pale malts form the body, and tame floral hops notes round out the nose. Moderate strength.

T - The yeast isn't as strong as it is on the nose. I don't get strong tastes of the familiar Belgian esters (clove, banana). What is there, though, is light spice and sweet malts, and a pretty boozy finish. I'm a bit let down by it.

M - Light-Medium bodied, smooth, and a bit of a slick alcohol finish.

D - It's a good beer, but I think it's not a great representation of the style and there are better examples to be had.
