4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of citrus, stone fruit and yellow fruit on the basis of massive phenolic spicy flavors from the yeast. Very clear pale yellow color which becomes hazy as the yeast on the bottom of the bottle unavoidably gets into the glass. Less carbonated than its champagne cap makes me imagine. Very attenuated and dry but in a really pleasant way. The high alcohol percentage is properly hidden. Ladies and gentlemen, this IS the tripel. It should be studied at school.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. 8/12/14 bottle date. Appearance: Light copper and slightly hazy, with a thick white head that lingers with nice lacing.
Aroma: Earthy, grassy, peppery, citrus rind, and a white vinous character. Prototypical saison yeast characteristics with some bready malt undertones.
Taste: High malt sweetness with clove and pear. Just a hint of spice and a moderate bitterness. Taste profile is very much like a tripel.
Mouthfeel: Light/medium body with high carbonation and some alcohol warmth.
Finish: Frutiness (pear) remains with some light breadiness.
Overall: Feels like I’m drinking two different beers. The aroma is very much a saison, with spicy, peppery, earthy notes. When you taste the beer a lot of those characteristics disappear and a tripel emerges, with pear and clove
prominent. Doesn’t have the typical pepper and dryness of a saison. Overall a very good beer.....whatever it is

Pours copper/golden color, slightly haze with stable creamy white head. Viully medium to high carbonation. Aroma: pevails hop aroma, with fruity notes like peaches, melon, grape, supported with malt aroma, with notes of biscuit...
Flavor is similar as aroma: intense hop flavors, with fruity esters, which takes on grape, peaches, grapefruit, melon, apple...malt flavors are in second plan, but still very well balanced with hop bitterness. Malt flavors takes on biscuit, with hint of candy sugar; malt sweetness is moderate medium, hop bitterness medium and lingers thorough finish into aftertaste. Alcohol warmth is noticeable, but gentle and discrete.
Body is moderate medium, texture is soft, carbonation medium.
Abbey tripel with character of saison.
