Bill Becker (1806) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 20, 2017
From Apr 2007 Pours from 11.2oz bottle a hazy medium gold with a huge billowy head of foam. During the session the foam did shrink a bit but only to a solid 1/4" layer and there's a *ton* of sticky lacing. The smell has all sorts of fruitiness going that I can only describe as being "exotic". I also get some yeastiness and a touch of sweet malt. The taste is as big on the fruit as the smell is. Wow. I wish I could figure out which fruits are there but what ever they are, they are working so nicely in this brew. Further sips in and now I'm getting a huge flavour of earthiness that almost acts like a brick wall so the fruit doesn't dominate completely in the taste. I'm also getting some nice candy sugar and...another wow is required. ;^) The aftertaste leans toward the somewhat bitter side and that just makes the whole drinking experience of this Tripel Ale all the more enjoyable. So complex and all of the different flavours "tickling" my palate in such a positive manner. The alcohol has some warming as it goes down but it's not detectable in the taste at all. Damn good stuff!! Bottom line: This is my first bottle of Urthel Hibernus Quentum but it won't be my last. Highly recommended!!

Bottle from Citgo Huntsville. Pours dark golden with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Pungent hop notes on the nose along with the Belgian yeast thing. Big Belgian flavor on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really good tripel. Dark gold, thick head. Potent aroma. Lots of spice in the nose and some citrus. Dry finish though with some orange, raisins, and pepper.
