3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle. Clear copper colored; white head quickly turns to a skin. Nose is sweet and yeasty with cloves and spices. Sweet, vegetal, prominent alcohol, bubblegum. Pool water aftertaste. Medium light, medium carb. I just can’t get past the the alcohol but still close to being very good.
I should’ve mentioned that even though I will probably not try this beer again it will always hold a special place in my beer heart. Back before I found RateBeer (8 months ago?) my brother and I went into Pappou’s on Balt. Pike to pick up our usual Harp or Bass. He spotted the Maredsous at like $15 for a 4-pack and said let’s give it a go. Stuff foamed up like a beast and did me up real good after two. So i guess this is a farewell.

A yeasty citrus aroma with a cloudy yellow appearance. The flavor was similar to sponge cake and lemon sour candy. Very sugary and carbonated. Another good one at NoogFest II

Julios Spring Beer Festival. Rich aroma of varied pears and white wine. Pour of hazed yellow amber. Flavor is a stingingly sweet mellow sugars ,with copious light fruit and a decent floral run. Lemons and cardamon flow well in this beer, with a delicate nose and superb balance. The alcohol isn’t overwhelming and helps the beer along nicely. Light smack of dry grasses, balances well.

This tripel pours a clear golden straw color with a large white head. Very fruity aroma, with citrus, tropical, and dark fruits all together along with the typical belgian yeast aroma. Very rich, full-bodied flavor with plenty of floral and grassy hops and caramel malts. There is also some citrus flavors with a slight sourness and a bit of spice. There is lively carbonation making for a good champagne-like mouthfeel and a clean crisp aftertaste. Overall this is a pretty good Belgian tripel.
