3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a nice amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pear, apple, grape, light orange zest, bread, honey, herbal, floral, light pepper, and light yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance; a touch muted. Taste of big honey, apple, pear, grape, light caramel, light citrus zest, bread, floral, herbal, light pepper, and light yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, honey, caramel, bread, herbal, floral, and light yeast spiciness on the finish for a bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity; with a very malt forward taste with low yeast spiciness; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian Tripel. Very nice flavor complexity with solid balance; and very smooth to sip on for 9%. Even though I prefer more peppery Tripels, this was very enjoyable. This likely had some significant age on it though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. 1 year old bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw color and a creamy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, hay and spices. The flavor is similar with more Belgian yeast, almonds and some alcohol. Has a soft mouth feel, full-bodied, and a light bitterness. A solid tripel with a well-balanced aroma and flavor.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks the fo-shizzle. Sunny, yellow gold with a slight mist and quickly settled yeast pad. Head goes up a good inch and holds for the length with a fine lace. Rocky and dense and snow-white in shade. Wonderfully plump and fruity nose with an underlying, sunny malt proflie. Very clean, with plenty of pale stonefruit, mango, papaya, navel orange and sherbet-like, candi notes. On the palate it is not shy on the booze with a heated, peppery spice to the swallow and warmth in the depths. Body is light and it is soft in feel to creamy in feel. Fruity, sweet and zesty front with a malty mid-palate then all yeasty esters in the back. Spice develops to envelope the esters. Beautifully balanced between sweet tip and dry tail with plenty in between. Wonderfully quaffable but also contemplative. Delicious. Beautifully done!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL as Goliath. Golden with a small sediment, huge white head. The aroma is strong and bright - white wine with notes of honey and flowers, as well some peppery and bready notes. The taste is similar but with a different balance - leff wine and fragrance, more spice, alcoholic bitterness and warmth. Very nice.

Longue en bouche.
Une excellente triple.
