BB 08-13. The beer pours a lightly hazy, goldenrod color with a full, white, creamy, fizzy head which is mostly diminishing which leaves some scattered soapy lace. The nose is pleasant with some orange citrus, light clovey phenols, doughy/estery yeast, light florals, and faint smoke. The flavor is similar with vanilla, light banana, more clove, slight orange, and some bready tones. The palate is very lively, moderately full, creamy, velvety, and drying. The finish is average with lots of clove and vanilla, some esters, and a wheat bread note lingering. Everything was as expected for the style but nothing interesting. I much prefer the Fin du Monde.

I just have to say, it took me almost three years to find this one so finally being able to write this review is very enjoyable. This tripel presents a foggy golden orange robe showing tons of bubbles. The head is very lightly tanned and seems to be creamy, even unctuous and fluffy at the same time. It retains very well and will show a good lacing. The nose first hits you with sweet and sweaty malts originating from the corn and barley malts used in its crafting. The corn is very present kind of supporting all of the other aromas. You can also decode some spice and a light bready side to it. The taste delivers the malts but very lightly so they don’t overwhelm the palate and they are mixed with some floral hops and a bit of smoke that delivers some kick. The taste is very interesting and presents no aftertaste. It could remind you of a strong lager (7% ABV and up) from the sweetness but it shows an interesting complexity that kills that idea on the spot. The mouthfeel is dense and creamy (even foamy) paired with a light sharpness that gives it structure. Conservative Tripel amateurs might not be impressed by this product but being a huge fan of Belgian style tripels this brew caught my attention for its distinctive taste and aroma. If you ever get the chance of laying your hands on one of those, it’s definitely worth a try. I kept two bottles in my cellar for two years and cracked them opened during the summer of 2013. Aged, this beer becomes much more complex with strong hints of buttered tablet and brown sugar. Very liquorish, it was outrageous!

Really rather strong yeast taste on this beer. Otherwise relatively typical tripel I would say.

BillWyce (769) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Pours hazy golden-amber, with a 1-finger white head and a moderate amount of bubbling on the glass. Aroma is fruity with a note of honey. Medium body with a mild oily thickness and a dry finish. Flavor has notes of orange peel and earthy yeast. Some honey-sweetness beneath, and maybe a touch of apple as well.

corkyrory66 (738) - BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Bière triple de 7,7 % abv, ce qui est un peu juste, mais acceptable. Par contre le maïs dans la composition est beaucoup plus discutable... Couleur dorée un peu orangée, et troublée de levure. Bulles par centaines partout. Mousse blanc cassé très épaisse. Arômes de fruits rouges frais avec une pointe d’Orval. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur une très jolie nuance de prune fraîche, avec céréales et levure. 2ème avec un grand goût crémeux d’écurie (vers l’Orval). 3ème avec une pointe de mirabelle. La longueur est très sympa. La levure est OK. L’alcool fait du travail correct malgré son niveau un peu djeuste... CONCLUSION : une belle bière avec cette saveur d’écurie bien typée.

Surprised I have not rated this. 750 ml, caged and corked bottle (drank tail gating before the Pro-Muay Thai fights). Hazy golden in color with an averaged sized head. Unibroue yeastiness, spicy, some citrus, and a lighter fruitiness.

Bottle @ the rake dungeon stored in various rotboxes for the past three years. Slight gusher. Nice looking, hazy, bright yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. The aroma is a bit heavy on the phenols and esters - lots of apple, banana, pear, some clove, and black pepper. Some notes of oxidation in the aroma. Decent carbonation. Somewhat dusty and lightly doughy flavor. Pretty yeast forward flavor. More banana and red apple. Some more oxidation. Not much of a problem with the alcohol - pretty smooth finish. Probably should have been drank a bit more fresh but it’s still kind of a fun beer.

Beachmaster (185) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 17, 2014
Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light gold color with a smaller than expected head for Unibroue. Nose is apples and spring fruits. Taste is light, refreshing, of apples ans fruit. Slightly sweet, with the typical Belgian yeast finish of bubblegum, clove, and banana. Tastes like cider made by Belgians Unusual, but quite good..
