3.47/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chilled 33cl bottled poured into a tulip glass.

Pours with moderate to high carbonation which builds a 3 finger tall head that lingers on and bubbles away with fine lacing.

A cloudy dull yellow hue flecked with the sediment. The characteristic smell falls short of being sweet but fruits like orange and pear come through.

Taste is very much the strong belgian ale. Yeast tied together with a salty tang, full mouthfeel and a great taste.

I doubt you would want to have to many of them in a session but a damn good beer worthy of a try by any belgian ale fan

Belgian style bomber, skimpy cage over a cork, and with freshness dating of 9-9-08. Opens with a powerful pop, and then lifts an initially huge near white head. Yellowy, cloudy light amber. This leaves spotty lacing and emits a tropical fruit nose. Notes of more fruits, honey, vanilla and some light pepper. Pleasant enough offering, went nicely with some nutty cheese and olives. Light, fruity, refreshing and easy drinking Belgian offering. Well worth a try, but lacking the complexity and interest of the heavy hitters of the style.

750ml bottle, caged and corked dated 8/8/09. Pours a murky, dull gold color. Only a bit of the ample sediment discernible in the bottom of the bottle makes it into the tulip glass. The four-finger white head is frothy, but not that thick, leaves some big-bubbled lacing.

The floral aroma consists of yeast, malt, slight coriander, and banana. The flavor consists of the same, slightly biting, nutty, peppery, metallic and mildly alcoholic finish.

It's rather light in body and well carbonated. It demonstrates decent complexity, but seems slightly out of balance. It seems very dry and stolid for the style. It's quaffable, but certainly not the best out there.

330ml, squat bottle - I mean really, could you have smaller print on your fucking labels?

This beer pours a somewhat hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with a near vessel-filling tower of puffy, finely foamy, and creamy bone-white head, which leaves some random splotchy and sudsy lace around the glass as it lazily sinks away.

It smells of gritty and grainy pale malt, sauced-up applesauce (sorry), some estery Low Countries yeastiness, muddled domestic citrus rind, candy floss-like free sugar notes, a touch of earthy spiciness, and more untethered acrid booze. The taste is grainy and bready pale malt, a weak veritable caramel sweetness, more unhinged sugar syrup banality, mixed and matched fruity esters, downgraded spicy notes, and an incorrigible alcohol heat.

The carbonation is definitely adequate in its palate-assaulting frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and sort of smooth, what with the spice and alcohol not exactly being good neighbours, as such. It finishes off-dry, the malty, fruity, spicy, and boozy essences having a virtual field-day.

Overall - yeah, this reminds me of why I couldn't cotton to this style for a long while when I first started doing this thing we do - the basic disjointedness of it all. Unappealing (I really mean it) wowee sauce right from the get-go, and no sense of cohesion throughout. Yeah, not all Belgian shit is, well, the shit, amirite?

A yeasty and hoppy brew with significant carbonation. Bit of sour yeast smell wih other herbs. Herbal. Straw pale yellow with a white foamy head. Drinkable, maybe some melon and pineapple, last night's fruit salad. but average all together. Modiale 2005

2ish fingers of puffy head which leaves nice lacing. A slightly hazy yellowy/orange straw colour.

Some tangy fruit esters are the main part of the nose. Perhaps some clove and maybe pear. Sweetness also plays a large part in this nose. A nice smell, but not as complex as the style usually presents.

More of the same in the taste. Those belgian esters are certainly there along with a vague spiciness. Finish is no where near dry enough for the style and residual sweetness hangs around in a thick, flabby kind of way on the back of the palate. However, I am perhaps being harsh because the style is generally done so well by truly masterful brewers. A sharpness is there too which i didnt get in the nose. Alcohol is not noticeable - a 4ish year old bottle though, so I think that's to be expected.

Mouthfeel is good, lively carbonation - however the residual heaviness from the malt sweetness is too much. Perhaps a little underattenuated?

Almost clear light golden color with frothy white head. Aroma is mostly yeast forward with strong floral esters but also some alcohol in the background. Taste follows with yeast notes, some hay, slightly floral, grainy, very balanced overall. Finishes dry with a light hop bitterness. Medium body, quite low carbonation for the style.

Great drinkable beer. Very soft, but nice alcohol keeps the tension. Is there Corsendonk yeast in it?

L: good top, could last a little longer? Golden colour.
S: grandma's apple pie! Vanilla, bread, cinnamon, raisins, butter: exactly the same recipe plus some malts.
T: soft, almost no bitterness, in line with the smell.
M: if it would have a little bitterness and extra body it would be a 5. Lovely though.
O: I love this beer.

This beer has a misty blond colour. At first it gave a big foamy head. When the head disappears, a thin fragmented layer remains.
The smell is surprisingly divers. Overpowering is the full-bodied hop scent. Very sweet smell, citrus fruit, some alcohol, banana, slight alcohol, tropical fruit,…
Taste is very different: voluptuous (milky), but dry. Citrus fruits, yeast (I think), bit of oxidation. A lot of carbonation.
Aftertaste: hops, oxidation, bit malty.

A rather mediocre beer.

Ut Vivat, Crescat, Floreat!

Belgian brewed with coriander, liquorice and orangeskin- Pours a hazy amber with a firm white head and with lots of rising bubbles like an active Champagne.

Nose is of light bananas; hints of coriander and violet.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium with no real character; nothing desireable here.

Flavors are sort of stale mild orange with yeasty white bread; flabby dull banana/cooked fruit flavor that is not bright and a bit flabby for a beer. Not particularly good flavors and flavors are short and unimpressive.

Finish is dull and sour yeasty. Hint of liquorice in the finish after a minute or two, but just a hint because you know its there. Not a favorite.

Poured into the proper glassware, this was a very hazy amber with a huge white head. Pretty decent retention, good lacing.

Smells of hops, malt, and light fruit esters. Upon tasting, the focus is moved to the grain, which dominates. The hops and the fruits (apricot, citrus) are definitely still present though.

Mouthfeel is decent; thick and it coats the palate. Overall a pretty good beer that deserves more attention.

Pours a cloudy gold murky with ton of yeast throughout leaving a thick off white head that is sticky. The aroma is wheat, lemon, honey, dried fruit, figs, date, prunes, orange, overripened fruit, pitted, and bready yeast aroma.

The taste starts tart on the palate, soft carbonation honey and lemon, earthy herbal nature to the beer. Wheat and a bit of a tangyness on the palate continues with a orange essence really strengthens as it warms.

The alcohol is apparent but not overwhelming soft warming of the palate leave a bit of a burn in the finish. Overall decent tripel a tad rough some age could benefit this beer.

From a 1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle marked 30/05/11-F-11:21. Sampled on June 26, 2009. The pour is a slightly hazy orange-yellow with an enormous frothy head that just sits on top for a long time. When the cork pops I get a hard-liquor like aroma but then it becomes more spicy and malty. The mouthfeel is kind of carbonated and creamy. A bit of licorice and coriander in the flavor. It was very appealing.

Pours golden/amber with a large lasting head.
Nose shows doughy, bready yeast, along with hints of pears, green apples and white grapes. Nice, but nothing special.
Very sweet and boozy flavours, with sweet bread and pears first up before lots of hot alcohol rolls through.
Carbonation is a little too high.

poured from 750mL into a chalice. Pours a lighter gold color with a smaller head. A bit too light in color actually

nice and creamy aromas of citrus, honey, some malts, and a touch of florals

medium bodied with a nice feel, but lacking a bit. Smooth with flavors of honey, creams, and citrus

a solid tripel. Lacking a bit on both the smell and feel, but a very drinkable beer. Sadly there are better tripels that are around the price though

$8.79 for a 750 ml bottle at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA in March 2006. Label sez "Brewed with Coriander, Licorice, and Orangeskin".

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice steady stream of carbonation supporting the white head in my Rochefort chalice.

Aroma is triple-like, but not the sweet aromatic citrus orange-tangerine that I am used to and like- this one is hit harder by the spiciness.

Flavor is slightly sweet, drier than many tripels, and without the traditional (?) black pepper that I associate with the style. Definitely other spices- the coriander and licorice are there- anise seed & breadiness like the cookies my German grandmother made when I was a kid.... It's a good tasting beer, but it just does not grab me.

A nice change of pace- decent enough. Maybe I'll like it better another time.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Hardly any head forms on this beer with a real nice display of white thin carbonation all around the glass, pinstripes and all. Body color is FILLED with yeast chunks all around, it's like a lava lamp practically and I did not aggressively pour this at all. Body color is a real nice amber bronze/red.

Nose is an interesting kick of cinnamon, classic sugar tripel sweetness, and some dry punchy yeast. Pretty neat, I like this cinnamon angle, never experienced that before on a tripel.

Taste is kind of muted, a slight anise quality but hard to notice. Somewhat flat, and strangely doesn't feel as carbonated as one would expect from the appearance. Slightly watery, not much density, but a good finish and taste, but also some alcohol and dry heat.

Overall not too bad. Bottles says brewed with coriander (I never smell coriander on any brew), licorice (ok..) and orange skin (not getting that so much). Regardless how these flavors might be not as apparant to me, they still make for a passable tripel for tasting.

25 cl bottle with a chubby jester on the label.

Clear golden ale, with nice carbonation and a good head.

It's got a smell of orange, cloves, and other spices. The hops come out in the taste, it balances the beer with it's bitter.
The finish is dry with koriander.

It's ok to try this beer, but the herbs and spices are so dominant, it could get boring after 1 or 2 pints.

Bottle brought back from Belgium. Pours a clear golden colour with an off white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, spice & light malt. Taste is malt, sugars, spicy citrus in the background, smooth hops in the finish along with mild apple notes. Aftertaste is mild with lightly bitter finish. Overall another decent beer from Du Bocq.

Small stubby bottle that alot of the belgians come in. The color was a shiny yellow. A bottle swirl clouded things up a bit. Dense small bubbled head. Foamy. Smells of grapefruit, citrus smells, and earthy belgian yeast. Maybe some soap, or is that my glass ?
Taste was tart citrus, grapefruit, fresh hop bitterness. Sweet underlying malty goodness with the ctirus shock. Maybe some honey and fresh mown hay. A pretty good, tangy, citrus strong ale. Light to medium bodied, highly charged, but with a enough snap to be refreshing.
