4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a Boulevard’s tulip glass. Three fingers of head with great retention. A hazy, medium straw colored body.
A great yeast and fresh bread smell. There’s also a spicy smell to it.
Taste is subdued alcohol with ripe dark fruits, little yeast and finishes with a mild bitter note.
A good fizzy texture, moderate carbonation and a medium body.
A well done tripel and a great beer overall.

Flaske: En af de øl jeg havde glædet mig mest til var også skuffende i forhold til forventninger. Gul diset øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Duften er meget gær og sødlig frugt. Smagen er lige ved at blive for sød og gæret, men meget kold overlever den.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. One year old. Has a slightly hazy light amber colour with a big, creamy, off-white head. Looks pretty carbonated. Citrus in the aroma along with alkohol, Belgian yeast, hay, mowned grass and some apple cider vinegar and clorine. The flavour mirrors the aroma but is sweeter with more Belgian yeast and alkohol, and in addition almonds and sweet corn. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A balanced and sweet tripel, maybe a bit too much boozy touch on it.

Pour is slightly hazed golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of tangy yeast and peppery spice up front. A bit of soapy hop and some lemon notes. Taste is a bit more soapy, yeast isn’t quite as pronounced. Lemon is moderate, not sweet but the balance is a bit soapy. Body is a bit syrupy but the strong carb helps to balance it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with good white head. Citrus aroma with some yeast funk. Yeast and citrus flavor is there and also a slightly off note that maybe just comes from the bottle conditioning. A bit metallic in nose and mouth. Nice texture and body. Generally easy to drink. Good trip even if it wasn’t that strange.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased at Four Firkins. Consumed in Belgian tulip glass. Plenty of head sitting atop a medium, think golden colored tripel. Aroma heavy on spice and yeast. Maybe some fruit notes...banana. Taste leans on spicy characteristics with a vibrant mouthfeel. Initially malt sweetness with hops rounding it out as the beer engulfs the taste buds. I would actually consider this just below the traditional tier on really good Belgian tripels. Another enjoyable offering from Boulevard.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours from the bottle a light gold with only a touch of haze from the rising bubbles. The white head starts big, but leaves quickly. A fine aroma of bananas, yeast and spice. The taste follows the nose with lots of banana, apples, yeast and a nice sweetness. The carbonation gives the mouth a light crispness. Simply an excellent tripel that tastes like it came straight from Belgium.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy gold color with a massive foamy white head that retains well and produces lots of nice lacing. The aroma is cloves, bananas, assorted tropical fruits, yeast with spicy peppery notes. The taste is similar, again, tropical fruits, especially bananas, cloves, pepper but with a nice bready malt background and a bit of pleasant bite in the finish that just makes you want more. Medium bodied, nice carbonation, smooth and very drinkable. The high ABV is not really noticeable until you’ve had a few. Altogether very nice, an excellent and enjoyable brew. Outstanding.
