Served in a Unibroue tulip

A: Golden with a white frothy head leaving traces in the wall as it retreats. Almost no visible carbonation.

S: Citrusy, hoppy, sweet, bread.

T: Same citrus and bitterness I got from the smell that leaves a coat in the mouth, a tad watery for my taste.

Overall a very good beer from people that have been doing this for a long time.

a- bottle poured into a st. bernardus logo goblet, hazy bright orange gold coloring, one finger fades pretty quick to lace layer with large bubbling.

s- very classical tripel nose, banana, clove, lots of yeast, and ample pepper.

t- echos nose, tastes strong, touch of hops mix in with the usual suspects, ripe banana, clove, and yeast.

m- medium to full, coating.

d- good, very flavorful, prefect example of what a tripel should taste like.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Palest shade of amber, hazy, initial large head morphed into a lid of film.

S: Fruity, yeast, phenol, slight citrus.

T: Phenol, sharp ripe fruits, tangerine, wheaty. Fairly sweet for a Tripel.

M: Smooth, reasonably crisp without a great deal of carbonation, minimal coarse edge from the booze.

O: A nice Tripel, lower in alcohol and bitterness than others, there is no such thing as a session Tripel, but two or three wouldn’t get you in trouble.
