look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: extremely carbonated. fluffy uneven head. carbonation rushing to the top like I've never seen. slightly dull gold.

S: alcohol very apparent, yeast and therefore bready.

T: alcohol is quite forward, however fairly well blended. otherwise difficult to describe. soft and medium bodied. slightly yeasty

M: Soft but mutely astringent

D: Not bad, but the flavor doesn't stand out. inoffensive but uninteresting.

Extra points for the presentation: It is served in the bottle with two glasses: one the traditional stemware, the other a shot glass--this is for the yeast sediment. I poured the larger glass first, moderating the head. I was impressed to see it last as well as coat the glass with a blanket of fine bubbles. The main glass was nearly clear and was golden in color. The shot glass was definitively whiter.

The aroma was mild. Despite being a trippel, it was not notably alcoholic to the nose. There was also little hop. This smelled like a pale amber beer.

The flavor was nutty with a strong alcohol bite given the nose. The swallow featured an acidic citrus bite. The finish has a lot of pepper to it, but it is short lived. The body was thinner than most trippels, but the carbonation was very good.

Brown 33cl bottle, best before 15 Nov 2010, reviewed 06 Aug 2010. This was part of a four pack bought in Belgium and brought home to review at leasure.

Poured slowly into a Corsendonk stemmed tulip: Light amber, even light orange in colour, with a good white head on top. Plenty of carbonisation showing on the sides of the glass at first. The brew had a slight haze to it.

Very floral, spiced and sweet country garden type aroma.

The initial taste was of sugared water (with alcohol), a headache in the making! I tried to find flavours or a taste, some yeasty hints could be found within the sweetness, but not much else.

If I have had a sweeter, less flavoursome Belgian Tripel in my life I can't remember it.

Sorry to say the smell is the best part of this beer. I had to get some brown bread and Pié d'Angloys soft French cheese to help me finish the beer.

Drank this tripel during a game of Colonists of Catan. Poured in a La Trappe chalice it is a pity that the head disappeared very fast. This makes the beer less 'good looking'. That's why i have to rate it with a 2. The next bottle i got had the same problem.

The smell is as a triple should be. The yeast is good noticable together with some spices and citrus. For the rest a very nice triple but the head should be better looked after.

Poured with a nice large, white, foamy, frothy, fluffy hefad and light frothy lace. Head mostly disappeared within minutes. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is classic Belgian Triple ale: yeasty, malty, hoppy, candy sugar vinieous. Flavor is similar and with the standard effect of sweetness, bitterness stand out more. Alcohol is pronounced. Good beer. Nothing great. Good body and carbonation. Like many other Triples. Could be a session for slow drinking.
