Pours dark golden colr with white head. Fruity and doughy arom with some spices. Similar flavors but not all that good. Medium body with lively carbonation. Disappointing.

Whole Foods Market, DC 4-pack ($11): This is pretty cheap for a Belgian tripel and fortunately it is not a bad beer either. Pours an orange color with a loose white head. Aroma got some gruut, along with a few notes of wine, and plenty of fruitiness to be had. Taste is well-balanced. It is a sipping beer completely because of the mouthfeel. Rather on the sweet side, but not in a cloying way. Spices add a little extra bite to it. I didn’t detect any alcohol in the taste.

JDBaker11058 (1467) - Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Appearance: clear (!) medium gold, two finger frothy white head shrinking to a creamy cap, solid lacing. Aroma: toasted white bread, caraway seeds, champagne, white pepper. Taste: sweet buttered white toast, spicy notes of fresh cracked pepper, hay, herbal and floral notes, white grapes. Finish: slightly sweet, a little spicy, with some champagne dryness and a little peppery heat. Notes: Like a tripel mixed with a fine pilsner. Really liked the non-typical (for a tripel) spicy peppery/herbal notes, clearly from the gruut. Palate very creamy/oily but with good effervescence. Extremely drinkable.

Nice and fruity. There is a big fruit presence in the aroma. There is a big fruit presence in the taste. Very nicely done. Over 1,000 years old I’m told. I guess there is no sense in screwing up a winner.

On tap in the Cafe De Engelbewaarder. Clear gold beer, good white head. Light crisp palate. Typical tripel sweetish malt but with a little pepper. Trace of fruit underneath. Served in good nick at the Engelbewaarder - much better than anywhere else I’ve had it in Holland or Belgium.
