This was phenomenally delicious. Good balance between some light fruits such as apple and a bit more darker like banana or plum. Lots of yeast and white pepper. Thick mouth feel with a generous head.

Bottle, sampled in a large tulip glass, this ale had a orange-gold pour with hints of yellow at the sides of the glass, the pour started out clear and got hazy as the bottle emptied, the pour gave an initial two to three finger white head that receded to a thin cover and sticky ring, the glass had a center stream of bubbles of medium flow or a little less, there was a layer of medium to dark brown colored on the bottom of the bottle, the nose had yeast and fresh bread aromas, pear and apple fruit, some alcohol esters, malt and fruit sweetness, a little dough in the background, it had flavors of apple and pear, light malt and bread, and fruit sweetness, a little pepper at the finish but not much in dryness or citrus, the mouth feel was light to almost medium with a little creamy feel on the palate, I thought the carbonation was a little light, it could have used more carbonation, not a stand out in the world of tripel beers, the Unibroue La Fin du Monde was a much better example of a tripel, an ok drink.

750ml bottle at the RateBeer DC tasting. I believe I overheard that this was a 2 year old bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light herbal notes, some lemon notes. Light sweet grains, wheat. Light cardboard? Light fruity notes. Hay with a dry finish.

From old tasting notes. Hazy honey gold color. Large rocky white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma. Zesty bittersweet citrus malt has a yeasty character. Intense fruity notes. Tasty.

Adamsville (389) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Dorée, semi-claire, col moyen blanc, bonne rétention, effervescence élevée et moyennement rapide, belle petite dentelle. Nez : Levure belge : épices, agrumes surtout sous forme d’orange, céréales, un peu d’effluves florales. Goût : Goût plutôt céréalier avec une touche sucrée rappelant le miel, complémenté par les arômes de la levure belge qui se caractérisent davantage par les phénols épicés que par les esters d’orange. On a même droit à une légère amertume en finale. Léger alcool. Sensation : Effervescence élevée, corps moyen à mince, belle chaleur de l’alcool, longueur de la finale adéquate aux aspects surtout épicés et légèrement amères. Bref : Déclinaison intéressante et quelque peu différente des Triples belges. On a un corps plus malté et sucré que ce à quoi on est habitué pour le style et une légère amertume qu’on ne retrouve pas tout le temps dans ce style. L’accent est mis davantage sur les épices que sur les fruits. Sinon, on pourrait émettre des réserves sur l’apport de l’effervescence trop élevée à mon avis qui gêne l’appréciation des saveurs (surtout au début de la dégustation). De plus, en bouche, les arômes sont relégués derrière le malt, notamment les esters. Ceci étant dit, il s’agit d’une bière intéressante et assez complexe.

Visual: Pours translucent pale orange with a large dissipating head, 1 mm layer of micro retention and wet sticky lacing, spread out clustered streams. Nose: unfiltered apple juice, banana wheat malt with a bit of yeastiness. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp, mouthful of sharp tingly-fizzy CO2 Mid-palate: red apple juice, (lvl-8-sweetness), banana wheat malt, tangy alcoholic hit, background sweet barley malt Finish: clove, subtle hopped bitterness, Summary: Mostly banana wheat malt dominant with aggressive alcoholic sweetness. Somewhat palate non-compliant in the mids. Overall it is unelegant.

Rated from old notes. The devils of La Maudite are sunk in holy water. Fruity aroma with a dry, understated fruity taste. This is similar to Blanche de Chambly, but more assertive.

Ferris (16487) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle - Sweet grains and honey with some candy like nougat. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Sweet and flowery aromatic notes much like its nose. Very sweet but pleasant. None of the dryness or grassy notes I like but good nonetheless.

TorbenJensen (1572) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2015
Great strong foam which rapidly declined to a thin layer. The aroma is strong of fruit, and already in the flavoring felt great sweetness. The flavor is very sweet and reveals lots of fruits like peach and orange. Clear notes of honey and only a little hop. It is undoubtedly the sweetness that is the focus here, and it gives a somewhat unusual triple, but will own fine to white meats.
