Pale gold with a light haze and effervescent bubbles accompanying. There's tons of yeast in this bottle as it gushed a bit when it opened and is pouring a head that's too tall to measure. After a few minutes it subsides for the rest of the sampling.

Lots of old, oaky, hardware store aromas with stale butterscotch, zucchini squash, and ginger. Some old ass aromas also. Just not very pleasant.

Flavor is really old butterscotch disc with some stale belgian spices, caramel, and stale malt. All of this staleness is telling me that perhaps this is a really old bottle.

Light bodied, into medium bodied, and nicely carbonated.

I hate to rate this so low as I may have gotten an ancient bottle. But this was literally a drain pour from the get. Just going to nonchalantly dump this while looking the other direction.

L: gives a light golden color. A decent top of head that disolves quickly. Some lacings on the glass.

S: I sense sweet yeast ,honey,burned sugar , fruits like apples and citrus. The typical aroma for a triple.

T&F: it starts of sweet with the yeast and and the fruity notes in the start. I sense both fruits like apples and citrus also I get a feeling of honey and candi sugar. In the middle and in the finish i tend to notice more the hoppy bitterness especially in the aftertaste that I don't think is last so long as it should. But all Inn all it does taste like a typical triple.

O: all Inn all a good triple but not at all extraordinary. Would not mind more flavours in this one. Is other triples I would choose over this one. Exept from this it was good and enjoyable.

A: very prominent 3 finger head, pale gold in appearance, effervescent, good retention
S: grain and apple, a touch of tartness and dryness, subtle notes of hop bitterness
T: sweet, malty boozy and kind of basic, touches of green apple, a rather prominent bitterness that does not make the beer crisp in a pleasant way (just adds an unpleasant astringency)
M: sticky but also dry in places (I know, but it is)
O: not great, I've had american tripels that were better and that's a serious slam, it's not that this is bad, there is just absolutely nothing special about it, basic, takes less than 5 minutes to describe the flavor, in a word (and only one left) boring

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

Look:
Beautiful gold color. Very clear. 2+ finger head and a very think and dense foam. Decent head retention. Great lacing that continues on.

Smell:
Malt, bread, caramel, biscuit, yeast. Quite sweet and desserty.

Taste:
Slight bite up front, followed by rush of sweet lightly toasted bread, biscuit, and crackers. When the sweet backs off, nice fruity white grape and white wine flavors make themselves known.

Feel:
Decent mouthfeel that is in the medium rage.

Overall:
This one was very good. This beer was very flavorful and actually surprised me. This one gets high marks, but I’m not sure if it is the highest rated Tripel out there. I would get this one again.

Didn't like the Dubbel much, hoping this is better..!

Some beer makers are better with the blonde/lagers, others the dark ones. Only a few brewers seem to nail both, like Chimay.

This works well as a blonde. Nice bitterness that complements the sweetness.

Enjoyed form the 11.2 oz bottle in a snifter from a friend at work---THANKS TONY!

This tripel pours a clear light honey color with a moderate head of white foam that dissipates to a thick sudsy ring, thin pooling layer, and light lacing. Nose of yeasty Belgian goodness and sweet candy sugars. Flavors exceed the nose with light breaded candy touched malts on all sides with notes of light cracker that comes into the middle mingling nicely with yeasty bread and moderate alcohol on the rear. Light mouthfeel with a lightly dry finish and light carbonation. Excellent.

Cheers

Pours a clear light gold after gushing all over the place when I popped the cap. Nice looking with a solid 1" head of foam and nice lacing.

It smells malty sweet with the sweet actually being more like honey than caramel. Yeasty as well with another sweet note reminiscent of candi sugar.

Honey dominates the taste factor with some candi sugar and well, no perceivable bitterness to balance it out. Tripel...

Lightish body and despite the gushing, the carbonation is okay.

Bottled the 145th day of 2014, from the mixed 6 pack.
