3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very interesting unique tripel. Pours an ugly clear orange. Smells of green apples and mint. Taste is thick but crisp. Lots of Apple and a bit of sourness in the taste, with a very minty finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
750ml swing top bottle -
Aroma - white cane sugar aroma, slightly fruity with a showing of yeast present
Appearance - golden body, clear, bright with a 2-finger head, medium retention
Mouthfeel - light-medium bodied, light-medium carbonation
Flavor - pear-like flavors, bread dough, wet crackers, a little too sweet for a tripel but drinkable
Overall - overpriced for what it delivers. Good for a 1-shot if you want to get NM rated, but I wouldn’t revisit unless it drops in price and gets significantly better.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear golden color, moderate to small head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grain alcohol, sugar, light bread. This smells like a bad European Strong Lager. Medium bodied, grainy alcohol flavor, some pale malt, not much else. Terrible, the worst Tripel I’ve ever had.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at House Beer. Pours a hazy golden-straw color with a medium foamy white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of figs, plums, yeast and malt. The finish is semi-sweet with a strong dark fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

A good rating says something about the appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish and your overall experience with the beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Monk’s Tripel has a thin, white head, a sort of hazy, gold-yellow appearance, some murky-ness, and a thin amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bright citrus, white bread, alcohol, and an overall champagne smell. Taste is of sweet, bright fruits, citrus, champagne, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, prickly, and a bit slick, and Monk’s Tripel finishes crisp, boozy, and interesting. Overall, I think it is worth a try. RJT

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a traditional tripel that i am used to. The head and lacing are good. Has a golden hue color to it. There is absolutely no fruit flavor to it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice orange pour with a big white head. Sweet grain, sugar, and fruit notes. Overripe pear, some apple, and a light tropical note. Alcohol, some green apple, and grass. Not terribly pleasant. Cloyingly sweet on the palate. Tons of sugar, grain, caramel, and fruit. Pear, apple, maybe banana, and some hints of tropical fruit. Quite boozy. Syrupy feel on the tongue.
