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.

Poured a hazy copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was sweet and malty with candy notes. Yeasty. The flavor was sweety and malty with phenol yeasty notes. Lively mouthfeel. Medium bodied and a nice warming sensation.

Shag (2789) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
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

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2006
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.

Dark orange body with a large head. Aroma was very fruity... almost anything you could think of. Also had some sugar and very light pepper. Sticky sweet finish, tasty... good stuff.
