3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 750 ml bottle at Benjyís, 9/17/13
Aroma: The nose is yeasty and a little sweet, clove, lots of fruit, plenty of spice, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a hazy orange color with an decent sized white head and some lace too
Flavor: The taste feels fairly sweet too, thereís some spice, and a little bit of alcohol as well
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a little sticky, soft-to-average carbonation, and a light heat
I thought this was a plenty solid tripel that clearly leans toward the sweet side. Even though I am not the hugest fan of sweet beers, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Lightly effervescent, no head, strong belgian yeast flavor, lots of banana, some warmth from the alcohol but not overwhelming. Balanced and drinkable, very crisp. Nose of honey and apples.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow pour, with malt-forward citrus and just a bit of bite toward the end. A little on the heavy side, but good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
small sample on draft .. . pours a dark gold .. decent foam .. . its amazing how ugly jennifer lopez was back in the day .. . a bit of booze .. . banana and yeast .. . light mouth .. . for any other brewery this would be pretty bad but for adelberts, this is quite good- these guys are definitely doing alot better since their initial releases, was quite worried .. . . Peach was never in any real danger. Mario and Bowser are buddies. I saw all of them hanging out and go-karting..

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 From bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a very thin white head with no lacing. Does not look like a traditional Belgian Tripel. Aroma is very sweet estery and fruity. Sweet and fruity taste upfront. A little bit sharp on the mouthfeel. Though it doesnt look traditional, the taste and aroma are very spot on.***After it warms up a bit, the head thickens up and the lacing begins to stick to the glass.***

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Bottled 11/29/12. Batch 005 bottles1032. Pours a thick well retained white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, light gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light pear, apple, citrus tones, hints of allspice,,,,,taste is light sweetness, with light pear, apple tones, lemon/orange flavors, leading to hints of spice, finishing with a lightly sweet bitterness, with pepper hints.....mouth feel light, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds slight acid. This falls within the style of either a Belgian Golden Strong, or a Tripel. It is somewhat light in complexity in both aroma and flavor, and is too sweet for a Tripel. A change of yeast, higher and longer fermentation might lead to more esters and greater attenuation. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale, cloudy bold yellow in color with a bright white head, this beer has a slightly lemony, somewhat malty-sweet aroma thatís yeasty, but not nauseating. In the mouth, itís light, soft, very tame and lemony. Nice... Light, well-flavored and very easy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orangey gold color with effectively no head on it. Taste is a bit spicy and light with some citrus elements. Relatively unremarkable beer to me, on the whole.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Aroma of spice, citrus, and Belgian yeast. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a rapidly dissipating white head and a little lacing at the edge of the ring. The taste is similar to the nose. Belgian yeast, cloves, and a strong barnyard presence. The finish is grainy with a quick bitterish aftertaste. Medium-light body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a drinkable beer but not my first choice for a Tripel.
