Brasserie Dubuisson Scaldis Blond Ale Triple

What the brewers say

“The beer comes with a natural veil of yeast and is exceptionally rounded and soft in character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Tons of banana, a little bubblegum, and subtle hints of white-wine grapes. Pleasant Pilsner malt aromatics. Floral hops suggestions. A smoky/spicy phenol edge.”

Flavor: “Grainy sweetness combined with a fruity alcoholic kick. The bananas, grape, and bubblegum suggested in the aroma live through to see the flavor. Hints of cloves, honey, and smoke round out the flavor. The high carbonation prompts another sip. Nonexistent hops flavor leaves room for a fullness in the finish that goes down smoothly and with a well-balanced bitterness.”

Overall: “An incredibly drinkable, balanced beer—a porch tripel. A tad on the sweet side and could use a little yeasty spiciness, but these are quibbles, and the beer is an overall success. It’s clean and well executed and should satisfy virtually any craft-beer aficionado. Nice example of the style. Very big alcohol— it may be a closer.”
