Poured from a fresh 750 bottle into the trusty ol' Chimay chalice.

The body is on the orange side of things. Darker than most tripels. Lovely off white head with lots of bubbles of varying size. The head sticks around forever. Some lacing also decorates the glass.

Big notes of citrus fruits lead with the first jab to the nose followed by a right hook of yeast. The alcohol delivers the finishing uppercut.

Fruits, pepper, and bread tastes dominate. The alcohol is present but pleasant. You feel it more than taste it. A lovely sweetness that is honey like is also there.

Medium body but a little watery. Dry finish with lots of carbonation.

I’ve paired this with some spicy (faux)buffalo wings before and it went very well. Spicy foods seem to mask some of the astringency and alcohol people don’t like about it. The 750 takes a while to get through for this one so I would suggest the stubby bottle for most especially if you are a virgin to this big beer. It might hurt a little.

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

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy orange/golden color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus, banana, spices, cloves and Belgian yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice cirtusy/tropical fruit charcter to it, nice floral/earthy hops, some banana, nice spiciness, bready feel, and yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Enjoyed in a chalice

A: pours a nice cider like amber color that is just slightly hazy with a ton of carbonation bubbles present and a thing layer of off white head that is frothy with large bubbles and lingers for a short time, leaves a nice amount of spotty lacing around the glass
S: i sense vinegar not unlike apple cider vinegar and a slight sour note
T: hmmm interesting, im catching note like artificial purple grape with a slight sour note in the middle and a bit of winelike character on the tail end
M: medium carbonation in the beginning, a bit of thickness in the middle and and interesting alcohol burn at the end in both the throat and chest, not bad though
O: a nice brew, not my favorite tripel but is still nice, could use with a bit of smoothing out (some age perhaps) kind of thrown off by the artificial grape taste
