12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazy golden-orange color. The head is a foamy four-finger white shade. It has an amazingly fluffy texture, but very little lacing. S: There are a lot of typical notes I expect of a good BSPA (such as apple, pear, and candied sugar.) But I love how the wheat gives it an unbelievable smoothness to it. Grassy and funky qualities helps provide some rock-solid depth to it. T: The first thing I note is Unibroue’s typical yeast profile - which I can never fully discern on the tongue, however I can note that it provides a grassy, sweet, yet vaguely salty opening. The faint candied sweetness bleeds into the midtaste, before a finish of wheat and even some mild hops envelop the tongue. It’s deep ’enough’ to be interesting, yet simple enough to go down easily. After all, isn’t that what you want from a tripel/BSPA? M: The lush, creamy softness at first sip turns into a vaguely dry astringency on the back end, but ultimately it’s fairly sweet and syrupy - this quality also seems to conceal the carbonation slightly. There isn’t any trace of alcoholic qualities on the feel or flavor; you could even say it drinks like it’s 6%. O: It’s a bit like La Fin Du Monde, but with wheat. Enough said, really.

This was a very good beer I expected this to be a very strong alcohol taste, however it was quite subtle and smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is amazing - a mix of yeast, biscuit, candy apple, banana, and mild spice. Flavor is similar if not as remarkable, with nice balance of fruity esters, malty bread and slight sweetness. Finish is fairly clean with just a touch of slight dry/sour.

Ma première critique, soyez indulgents :) Au nez, je perçois des arômes de céréales, d’orange et d’autres fruits plus doux comme la pomme, et d’épices. La mousse blanche est fuyante, et la robe est d’un orangé voilé. Elle est plutôt effervescente, les bulles sont serrées . En bouche, je remarque qu’elle est très fruitée, un peu épicée, et je constate une certaine acidité, ou du moins un goût d’agrumes. Malgré le 9%, le goût d’alcool n’est pas trop prononcé. La finale est sèche, et laisse peu d’arrière-goût. Pas mon type de bière préféré, et je ne suis pas spécialiste en tripe belge, mais la Don de Dieu me semble être une bonne bière réussie.

Bottle - Sweet apricot and some honey like notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit and a nice fruity sweetness. No booze at all which is surprising, but lots of fruity sweetness.

It pours a cloudy pale orange color with a white, creamy head. It has aromas of biscuit, toast, orange, pear, floral, and spices. The initial flavors are of pears and oranges. It also has flavors of biscuit and toast. There is a bit of floral elements as well. It has a medium feel and textures with a moderately bitter sweet finish with moderate carbonation. It does have a slight bit of alcohol warming, but not to the degree to suggest that it has a 9 ABV.

A nice fruity berry beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of berries, mostly strawberry and citrus. Taste is much the same. Lots of strawberry and raspberry with a smooth Belgian background. Not tart at all, very fruity. Had in the bottle.

Bawelt (270) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 11, 2015
Intéressante. On sent bien le côté blanche : le blé, un fond miel assez herbace, légèrement épicé. Manque de corps en revanche pour une triple. Le côté blanche poussé par la tripe tire vers un mélange rapidement écoeurant (goût épicé). Pas fan.

Bottle in San Diego. Classic tripel yeast fruity esters. A little sweet, low bitterness, how I personally like a tripel, but got a little cloying towards the end. Still, a nice tripel.
