Also, I had touted a Trader Joe's beer a few months ago, and just tried a new one, so I figured I'd mention it. This was a tripel brewed by Unibroue. I love Fin du Monde, but this was right next to it on the shelf and only $5 (very cheap for beer in DC). It was not great, but definitely had the Belgian yeast notes I love. It was sort of reminiscent of holiday fruit cake without the sweetness. Had an overall bready smell and taste, but in a clean way. has a lower alcohol content than the style dictates, but that coupled with the light mouthfeel and carbonation makes this sort of a Belgian version of a session beer, and for the price I can afford to quaff it more in that mindset.
Drank Sam Adams' new tripel the next day (I'm just off vacation) and that really threw some perspective on how light the Trader Joe's was.
