A hazed amber ale with athick creamy off white head. In aroma, a surprisingly nice spiced coriander and curacao, with light alcohol. In mouth, nice caramel malt with curacao, oily mouthfeel,warming alcohol. Rich and smooth. Bottled, at Mondial 2010.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This peppery Tripel’s classy mouthfeel is the home of cushiony cereal sweetness, spicy hops and a veritable fruit salad of esters, flavors which are all nicely balanced and vibrant.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lingering sheet of foam tops the cloudy blond.
-The fruity finish is pretty citrusy and almost tart.
-The soft frothiness of carbonation is perfect to alleviate dextrins.
-The hop bitterness is long and herbal, and never aggressive.

Bottle at Delirium in Rio. Nice packaging (corked caged and classy bottle). Blonde and nicely headed. Aroma is yeasty and heavily fruited, but the flavors are dry and sophisticated. The overripe pineapple becomes dried apricot and finishes with a herbal tea dryness that makes this trippel tipple surprisingly moreish. Well done!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Delirium RJ. It pours deep golden yellow, with a foamy white head. The nose is cinnamon, hay, straw, banana, apple and pear. The taste is peach, nectarine, tart apple, banana, hay, straw, spice and some alcohol warmth, with a dry finish. Fruit is not over-powering or too sweet. Medium-full body and lively carbonation. Smooth and well balanced. A very good tripel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL bottle, brought back from Curitiba, Brazil. Pours a hazy, golden orange color; creamy, persistent, glistening white head with great retention, lacing. A nice melange of ripe bananas and honeyed sweetness tempered by pepper and clove notes; pinpoint focus here: slightly more fruity and layered than the average tripel profile, but restrained sweetness and nothing sloppy; damn fine aroma. Medium-full body; creamy palate with Champagne-like carbonation; a touch more fruit-driven ripeness and hints of rounded caramel than offered in the nose, broadening the palate somewhat beyond the traditional profile I’d expect from a tripel, but that white pepper and well-hidden alcoholic leanness still play their parts here; possible a touch of oxidation here opening things up as well: clove, white pepper, apple fruitiness, vanilla, and honey. A very nicely handled tripel that meanders a bit. Medium-length finish brings out additional toastiness, honey, and hints of vanilla and pepper, almost oak-like tannins.

Drank on day 2 of the 2010 Mondial de la Bière. Mid-misty blonde, medium head. Sweet aroma of malted barley, slightly spicy. Dry barley sugar taste, light malty spice, good little bitterness. Yes, I would drink it in Brazil, or anywere else!
