Bottle label data:

Very carbonated pour with plenty of spewing, white foam; body is a pale yellow with flecks of yeast floating lazily about. Wheat-y, grassy aroma; pear. Wheat and light grained bread flavors tinged with a mild, ripened fruit note; fairly bitter; some alcohol warmth. Medium bodied; dry finish.

An interesting yet rather dulling beer. By that, I mean that the mild astringency, bitterness, and over-bearing dryness makes this rather flat and one-dimensional. Drinkable? Sure. Big booze buzz? Check. Memorable and wanting you to drink more? Not quite. Fair enough for what it is, but nothing to get really excited about.

Pours a hazy, honey color with a solid finger’s worth of white froth. Aroma smells of moscato, honey, bread, and perhaps a hint of tartness. Good staying power affords a persistent cap.

The taste features a big, rich kick of honeyed malt up front, along with some golden delicious apple, plum, and candy sugar (this beer certainly wastes no time getting down to business in the flavor department). Warming alcohol suggests a meade-like finish in context, though it’s augmented by a musty earthiness that’s hard to describe. The alcohol itself, while present, is deftly integrated and belies its ABV. Some pepper begins to emerge as well with sufficient warming. Zesty yeast and perky carbonation lend a luscious, vital mouthfeel that counterbalances the rich, sweet taste. Despite the big flavors and lively mouthfeel, the net result manages to remain balanced.

Overall, this is a big, bold, and balanced brew that gets the job done. I actually preferred it a little on the cooler side, as some of the flavors start to tip the balance as it warms, although that really is nit-picking. I'd be hard-pressed to declare any significant faults.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.45 330ml bottle. Served at 5deg C in a tulip

A- Opened with a huge pop and poured a massive head. Be careful pouring. Cloudy and light golden color

S- Pretty good. Hints of citrus and banana. Foral scent

T- Young. Very young. Needs years to mellow

M- Dry which is good for a high alcohol beer. This one should mellow out within a year or two.

O- Pretty good. Have a couple to try in a few years. Triple

Food Pairing

This very young beer goes well with... Pad Thai nice and spicy. This beer cuts through the spice pretty good

Enjoy

Poured from bottle to rocks glass type thing from my hotel.

Nice tight bubbled foamy 2 fingers of head that leave a persistent lacing through the drink. Aroma is very hefeweizen-like IMO. Banana and clove come through in the yeast. Peppery tones and Belgian phenolics are also present. Taste is a bit flat. Not a lot of nuance, but I'm not mad at it either. It's crisp and somehow refreshing for a 10% brew. Quite dry as far as mouthfeel, very tripel-like. Overall a decent example and I'm glad this is readily available here in Spain.

This delicious, savory tripel is just my style. Simply put, it's candy esters are well balanced, the tone, the mouthfeel, is delicate (like apricots?) and comes to be exactly what I expect when I open a Belgian Tripel.

The smell alone is delicately complex (again, delicate, is used intentionally) with candied, brandied apricots as the principle smell component. The smell of freeze-dried apricots is detected, and the alcohol is not far away either. This interesting, excellent contribution to the category boasts 10% ABV.

The taste is smooth, satisfying, and beyond reproach.
