Up there with Fin Du Monde, and not quite Chimay or Bernardus.
a) Pours a wine-like slightly hazy, golden body with a mounding three-finger white head that laces well in a white wine glass.
s) Funky yeast, wheat, medicine cabinet. see-saw of sweet and white pepper.
t) More spicy, mineral, and yeasty, Sauvignon blanc/ chardonnay like, easy afternoon sipper.
f) It's crisp, sharp minerally, with a dry finish. A lighter tripel with a meditative yeasts, tongue ticklers and alcohol warmth.
o) Love these beers and this is just below top tiers. Try 24.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

a: clear, vibrant pale orange color - almost copper - color with a large 3 finger, frothy off-white head that fades somewhat quickly

s: lemongrass, earthy grains, sweet green pears, a mix of red and green apples, Belgian yeast spice, sweet citrus, and some sweet grains

t: loads of pears, apple, and sweet grain up front. A mellow Belgian yeast spice behind that along with some lemongrass and those earthy grains. definite phenols in this one. a hint of pepper, sweet malt, and a big bready note to close it out

m: solid medium mouthfeel with high carbonation


o: a solid Tripel. It's definitely not the best i've had, but there is nothing wrong with it. It could use a touch more of the fruity esthers in here, and maybe a bit more spice. Other than that, a nice beer to drink

Pours clear yellow straw with a medium head and limited lace. Nose is mild for the style. There is a bit of spice and earth, but the esters really aren't what I was looking for. Taste is more-or-less what you'd expect from the nose in that it is straightforward and doesn't have a dominating aspect. A touch of yeast and some pear, and something like a sharpness/tang as well. I will say the mouthfeel is really nice like champagne. Overall, just okay.

This one pours a clear light amber, with a small head, and a good bit of lacing.

This smells like green apple, floral hops, clove, and light spices.

This has a nice dryness to the finish, which helps make it work. There's some apple and pear, with clove, and a bit of syrupy sugar, which luckily isn't that strong.

This is medium bodied, starts crisp and ends syrupy, with a good level of carbonation.

This isn't exactly my favorite style, but this is definitely pretty nice.

Pours a lighter golden color - semi clear. The head is frothy, white, 2 finger, and fairly long lasting.
The nose is somewhat spicy. I also, to me, get a slight apple aroma.
Taste - is fairly light flavored up front. I do get some spices, and sourness on the backside.
Crisp feeling, and decent body.
Not bad, and an interesting beer.

It pours clear amber with a huge head. The aroma is sweet and cola-like with some of the spices coming through. The taste is sweet upfront but it progressively becomes drier and even bitter toward the end. Yeasty esters all around. A nice Tripel.

Cloudy gold color,above average carbonation. Aroma is yeast,candy and floral ,spice,with a mild scent of malt. Taste is identical,smooth and crisp ,high carbonation didn't harm the feel and had a clean dry finish. I'm a big tripel fan and didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. A pleasant surprise and one I will definitely have again

A- A beautiful slightly hazed golden colored Tripel with a super white head that is puffy and active on the underside....starts about 3 fingers thick in my tulip glass and slowly settles to a finger and a half. The carbonation is plentiful and aggressive looking, as there is a combination of large and petite columns cascading to the top of the liquid, and there is a large amount of small foam patches clinging to the side of the glass! A very nice looking brew to say the least!

S- There is a distinct alcoholic presence noted and there is sweet candy sugar quality as well. Fruit throughout the smell as well, with candied apple, apricot and maybe a little bit of a banana ester. Slightly floral, slightly grassy and everything is bound together by a yeasty bread/biscuit quality.

T- The overall taste is sweet (honeyed) and of spiced fruit......plus there is a heavy yeast/bread/biscuit richness about it. The malt is caramelized, and it's like candy sugar has been added to give this an extra zest. The booze really isn't that bad but it is present and adds a quirky metallic flavor that lingers in the background throughout the entire taste. The fruit I get is again of apple character and the finish is a little cloying and lingers long after the swallow.

M/O- Medium bodied and with plentiful carbonation, this really is quite easy to drink and I'd have no problem having a couple of these....it doesn't fill the gut and the booze, even though it is noticed on the palate, for the strength, it is reasonably well hidden. Ive had better Tripel style before but I don't think this is a bad beer by any means....probably just in the middle of the pack as far as overall quality is concerned.....give it a try!....I'd get this one again.
