      Score: 19½ points
      Appearance (3)
      Bright golden. Incredibly high carbonation. Massive head.
      Aroma (4)
      Fresh malt. Clean spices. Hint of ginger.
      Mouthfeel (9½)
      Light body. Fiercely fizzy. Nice malty base supports lots of spicy flavors. Alcohol warming is present but not powerful, making this a tasty and subtle beer.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Excellent beer, but not as complex as I was expecting. It's brewed in Belgium, then conditioned in France as a champagne.

      Score: 16½ points
      Appearance (3)
      Bright golden. Thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Spicy, wintergreen mintiness, mild phenol.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Medium-big body, really fizzy. Sweet grainy malt. Lots of fruity esters. Mildly — or even more than mildly — phenolic. Mild coriander note in the finish.
      Overall Impression (2½)
      I've referred to this beer as the best Tripel I've ever had, but this bottle ain't quite it.

      Score: 13 points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Brewed with wheat, barley, and oats. Golden, high carbonation, massive thick head. Spicy, sweet, coriander aroma. Light-medium body, fizzy, overpowering coriander flavor. Wheat sweetness, oat smoothness.
