750ml bottle from Market Square Liquors. Yellow pour with a huge white head that leaves soapy stick. Aroma of mint, lemon, light malts, yeast and pine. Tastes are more of the same with spike of carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter, pepper and mint. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slight lemon notes in a very soft tripel aroma, from the yeast. The appearance is very light with a bit of lemon haze and a small white head. The flavor is so light and smooth that you don’t tase any alcohol at all for that ABV. The light notes of lemon come on gradually and linger lightly for a bit, it goes down very easily.

Point the cork away from anything you care about. Not a gusher, just a forceful pop. Pours cloudy yellow with a big white head, good retention and good lace. Smells yeasty with some banana and bubblegum. Tastes about the same. Sweet and yeasty with some fruit and cereal malts. Medium body, lightly coating, fizzyish carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light gold with light white head. Fruity, orange, corriander and a bit musty in the nose. Citrus spicy (a hint of bublegum?) flavor, dry with subdued malt presence. Nothing overpowering but plenty of flavor. No way I’d think this had 9.5% alcohol. Palate is fairly full as well, I guess based on the malt needed to get that alcohol. A very nice surprise.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from bv4lss. Pours a slightly hazy brass-yellow color with a big fluffy whit head that has good retention and lacing. The aroma is mild with soft herbs, Belgian yeast, whit pepper and sweet malts. Thee flavor has a big Belgian tripel character with white fruits, thyme, grapefruit, hops and some lightly funky sour grapes. The palate is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is medium in duration and dry. Overall: A very enjoyable quaff if you are in the mood for something Belgian.
