Brought this back from Zona Sul in Rio De Janeiro, Ipanema. I can’t believe that such a great Belgian beer can come out of Brazil; this blew me away. It completely welcomed me back into enjoying tripels!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beige, cloudy, big fluffy head. Yeasty aroma, light pear note. The taste is dry, yeasty light with lots of dried apricot. Austere but complex tripel, I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.8 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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber colour with a tall white head. Aroma is spicy and fruity with some barley. Taste is also sweet fruity with hints of spice, malt and a nice medium bitter finish with spicy hops. The only downside is, I’d like to see a longer and stronger bitter finish but otherwise, really nice. I like this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For the eyes: tawny colour; the head is white, foamy and mostly diminishing; cloudy body; heavily particulate. For the nose: hay malt and citric hops (orange/lime); heavy yeast; coriander. For the mouth: medium body; lively carbonation and alcoholic finish. For me: not very complex, alcohol in the finish not very pleasant.
