Poured hazy from the bottle. Smooth sweet tripel mouth without going too near syrupy. Good all around with a hefty enough bite to be dangerous.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve been waiting a long time to try this. Popped the cork, poured a liquid of ripe-apricot color into my snifter, and watched as it loaded itself immediately with a massive, pillowy, dense head. Light bananas and clove on the nose, and then a cotton-soft, sweet and sour on my tongue. A delicate explosion of yeast in an array of fruit and spice from inside the creamy liquid coats my entire mouth; the yeast coming sliding under my tongue and titillating my salivary glands. It gives me a wonderful reason to tip the glass again. This is very nice; subtle, but strong; an excellent example of an Abbey Tripel and one I am absolutely sure to go back to in the very near future.
I am very glad to have been able to find this Boulevard, and so glad that it was worth every minute of the wait.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle -
A very, very solid beer and nicely priced at $9.00 for a big-boy. A very spicy smelling tripel, with copious amounts fruit and alcohol found within. The yeast makes an appearance as does toasted sugar. Bubblegum jumps out on my palate right off the bat. Table sugar, orange juice, some light hoppage, alcohol and spices. Very nicely balanced. Evervesence is medium-high, so it does have a bit of prickliness to it. Alcohol adds to it. Very nice.

335 ml bottle. Hazed dark gold pour, large head. Smell is spocier, some herbs and honey. Flavor is a spicy triple, also a bit boozy. Not the best trip but a good us interpretation.
