Had this "new to me" Belgian on tap at Max's the other day.

The beer pours a solid gold color with very good head retention and lacing. On the nose I get some light aromas of honey, ginger and banana. The beer is very nice on the palate, with moderate sweet flavors of honey, butter and cantaloupe. The beer is a bit simple and one dimensional, but is still quite pleasant. The beer has a fairly light mouthfeel and finish, with the abv. very well disguised. Finish is smooth and soft.

Not a beer I would probably seek out, but a nice enough beer none the less.

This is a very regular tripel. Straightforward. Because of the drinkability I won't say anything bad, but on the other side there isn't much to say in a positive way either.

L: okay; regular top; not too foamy;
S: quite yeasty, little funk;
T: nice, quite light alcohol, finish missing;
M: drinks great, but without a finish...
O: good beer.

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

Appearance - Clear blonde body with a very large head.

Smell - Sweet and citrousy. It's a lower alchohol tripel, so the smell is softer (yeastier?) than many I tried.

Taste - Starts malty but releases well with a dryer, hoppier finish.

Mouth - Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Some alcohol taste is present, though

Drinkability - Decent for a tripel, but not as smooth as other, higher alcohol tripels that can be found.

I had a bottle at Delerium Cafe in Brussels.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden-amber with a white head that thins to a persistent film leaving no lace.

Smell: Cherries and caramel. Odd aromas for a tripel, but it smells nice.

Taste: Some tartness and toasty malts upfront. There's an almost a honey sweetness before the finish, which is peppery, grainy and lightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, high carbonation.

Drinkability: Quite nice, not too sweet.
