   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Bulk_Carrier (4236) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 2, 2013
It pours a beautiful hazy golden leaving the same color body. A half centimeter of white foamy head appears and lasts for a minute before dieing in a concave sort of way. Some streams of carbonation are seen rising. The smell is centered around spices and sweet fruit coming through in a light way. Belgian yeast is there but more subdued. The taste is spicy and sweet sometimes at the same time and sometimes not, amazing (at least to me). The palate is about a medium with the normal amount of carbonation felt on the tongue. A slight creaminess comes through as well. The aftertaste is sweet and the finish is sticky. Overall, this is an awesome beer for its style and awesome to me.

Duvel - the Belgian original. Unique bright yellow colour. Nice foamy white head. Lemon and cereal aroma. Bittersweet taste, but less bitter than a Chimay Blanche or La Trappe Tripel. Aftertaste not intense. Strong carbonation, which fits really well to this beer. Overall, very nice Tripel.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Translucent gold, huge white pillowy head and amazing lacing all the way down the glass. Apples, pears, bananas, spice, mild alcohol & funk on the nose...pure Belgian delight, Love it! Sweet malt & honey followed by ester fruitiness and a mild bitter hop & alcohol bite at the end. Dry finish. Mouth Feel reminiscent of champagne. Love this one!

Aroma of wheat and caramel. Pours a brilliant gold with a thick white head. Tastes of honey and wheat. For a fairly strong beer the alcohol taste is minimal. Brilliant.

How can you rate this as anything but near perfect? A few points docked just in case there is the potential to better this beer in the style, but I think thatd only be by adding brett to a similar beer. Great.
