look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ml bottle generously shared by the bartender at Delirium Cafe in Brussels, poured into a pokal glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a finger of white head, decent retention and great lacing.

S- Spice, yeast, some orange peel and other citrus.

T- Pretty similar to the aroma, lots of yeast with some spice and fruitiness, a bit of hops towards the finish.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel.

O- A solid, enjoyable tripel, I might try this again if it shows up on tap somewhere.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip style glass.

A foamy off white head is produced on the pour, and a crystal clear bronze copper body. Quite a dark body for a tripel, and some cola like sticking bubbles to the sides, but a nice rising column of carbonation in the middle.

Large sweet honey nose, dry ripping grain, burnt clove senses. A little cloying and sticky sweet perhaps coming? Maybe even some bitter hop in there too and heat.

Taste is like drinking slightly hot honey. Sweet palate but luckily not syrupy. Smooth feeling and consistency, with a malt mild grainy-ness on the finish. Heat alcohol sense comes through a bit, and even matches a bit of white hot pepper.

Pretty solid but it does feel just a bit sugary for my tastes. However, it's got all the right things going for it.

Reviewed from my notes. The beer is colored golden orange and appears opaque. There is a thin skim of large soap bubbles atop the beer. There are lots of tiny bubbles that cling to the sides as I swirl the beer about the glass. It has a funky citrus aroma. There are some great smells from the Orval yeast, but also has great qualities you find in triples. I like it a lot. The taste also has a crisp funk flavor. I can also taste a bit of fruit. For some reason it tastes woodsy. It conjures up images of pine twigs, although I wouldn't say it tastes like pine. Maybe be it just reminds me of being in a forest. It has a medium body with a touch of creaminess. It finishes crisp. It has an average amount of carbonation for the style. This beer doesn't feel like it wants to be drank quickly; but it isn't really a sipper either. I believe it just asks to be enjoyed.

La Rulles Triple, Ontap

Appearance: Perfectly clear, light golden elixer. Tons of lace in the form of a sheet of white.

Smell: A mix of herbal/floral hops and some biscuity malt in the background.

Taste: Very well balanced in the taste. Spicy hop, definately grassy as well. Nice bitterness is there the whole way through. Estery Belgian yeast is percievable, but muted by a dry hop. Just a hint of clean alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Light feel, good carbonation, and semi dry in the finish.

Drinkability: This seems like a mix of a Belgian pale ale and a standard tripel. Hoppy for the style, not as sweet or yeast dominated like most examples. A pretty good overall beer, and if you like hoppier belgians, this is for you.

La Rulles Triple has a thin, white head, an opaque, brilliant orange appearance, and rather large brown specks, suspended throughout. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is of candy sugar, white bread, light fruits, and pungent yeast. Taste is of those elements with some building, background bitterness, sour dough bread, and even tomato juice elements. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and La Rulles Triple finishes wet and quite drinkable. Not alcohol detected in the sipping.

Served in a goblet.

Pour is a nice orange-amber color with a bit of light haze. White head that sits atop the brew for a good period and leaves behind a pretty good dose of lacing. The nose has some light citrus as well as a nice bit of spice and Belgian yeast. Good hop character. The taste is along the same lines with a nice spice, citrus rind, and some hops. Good feel and a nice body; everything integrates well. A nice drinkable brew.

On tap at McMenamin's in Philly.
Poured into a chalice and poured a very hazy apricot color with a white thick bubbley heading that turns to a thin lace around the edging of the glass.

Smell has a citrusy-yeasty combination that smells terrific. Kind of like smelling orange juice at first and then the yeast takes over.

Taste is the same as the nose and then a whole bunch more. Same citrus blast of lemmony zest with a nice yeast profile. Corriander comes into place with a peppery dry fruitiness.

Mouth is excellent great retention alot going on on the palate very fruity and with a slight sting of citrus.Full bodied and slick.

Drink is a little heavy for a decent session but a very approachable drink to have a couple.

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

A: Medium amber, with a bit of murkiness to it. The white head produced in the pour fades fairly quickly into a ring.

S: Sweet, with citrus fruit and berries. I am picking up a lot of citrus notes in this guy. Not as much of a yeasty smell as I would have figured, but perhaps it just need to warm a little.

T: Sweet at first. Orange rind, coriander and clove come out. A good bit of yeast and a nice bready quality in the finish.

M: Medium bodied, very highly carbonated and a very dry finish.

D: Very nice overall, but it seems to have almost a little bit of a dirty quality to it. Overall though it is a very nice brew, and it hides it's booze fairly well.

Served on tap at TND in Wayne in a triple fluted chalice

Pours hazy and golden, big fluffy white head that hangs around for a while.

Spicy nose, yeasty, with sugar and fruit coming through quite strongly as well.

Some malt notes in the flavor, some sugar, some spice, some yeastiness, some fruit, with a small dose of floral hops at the end. A lot going on.

Not too carbonated, well-balanced, especially considering all the different flavors and notes involved. Not the typical triple, but a very good version of one.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 12/7/12

A hazy golden orange with a few chunks of sediment, a nice three finger bone white foam falls to a thick film leaving a few partial rings of lace

S a nice yeast profile hits me right away, dry cereals, hay, grassy hops, earthy notes, some candied pineapple, bubblegum, and faint booze, smells like a great Triple

T more grains, booze and bubblegum but less of everything else, still great but missing something the nose had

M quite full for the color, carbonation is perfect, silky at first and creamy by midway, spicy finish and very faint heat, smooth stuff

O I'm digging this one, easy too drink with a near perfect smell and zero flaws. the booze is well hidden and it went down dangerously fast

Solid stuff and for around 10$ it's an easy buy, Alberta's beer culture keeps getting better and better

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

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, hazy golden-orange hue with a finger of frothy ivory foam. Not a lot of effervescence or head; it's OK looking but not spectacular.

Smell: rich, sweet malt aroma. There's a little bit of a perfumey floral aroma which works quite well, plus a light, plumlike fruitiness. The star here, though, is the base malt aroma, which, while simple, is exquisite.

Taste: the richness of the aroma comes through in the flavor. The malt is big and bold with just a hint of tartness, and the floral aspects remain. There is a lack of complex fruitiness, though, which just brings it down a notch. Still, this is a damn fine tasting tripel.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a creaminess which is the bomb. The effervescence doesn't look like much, but let me tell you the carbonation is well-integrated and well-executed.

Drinkability: while I feel like this beer lacks some of the classic tripel flavors, I happen to really like its simple, unfettered maltiness. I would gladly drink this again anytime.

Poured on draft into a tulip at Monk's Cafe. Came out fairly cloudy with a fairly thin head. A darker straw color. Nice looking beer, but not as great looking as it was great tasting.

Smell was pears and zesty spice. Nice & bright.

Taste was also great. Lots of spicy character and a bit of citrus, lemon zest character. Some nice malt character, too, though fairly light bodied. Carbonation was quite spritzy and nice. I loved this beer. So easy top drink.
