Aroma is very, very subtle. Small amount if honey in the background. Appearance is very good, nice yellow/gold. Taste: too sweet for a triple. A good bit of funk in the taste as well. Palate: medium to light. Not much carbonation at all. Overall: a valiant attempt but needs a good amount of work.

SG111 (981) - New York, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Tap at Brass Tap, Fort Worth. Pours pretty light yellow, not too good looking. Like poorly hydrated urine. Aroma is fairly standard tripel, but a it mild mild, lemon, clove, definitely some nice Ester sugars, not too complex but not bad either. Flavor is hmm, I mean, itís kind of what a Belgian tripel is, but very mold and very sweet. Itís a bit too sweet for me. Clove, sugar, lots of sugar and esters. Itís fine but nothing exceptional.

On tap at Zax. Grainy,buttery, sweet aroma. Texture and body a bit light. Mildly sweet, floral flavors,not bad for an American version. Almost there....

RedSox2004 (1578) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Hazy golden orange with a white foamy three-finger with modest lace. Aromas of citrus, banana, medicinal herb, pepper and Belgian yeast. Taste is dark fruit sweetness accompanied by ripe banana, toasted malt, earthy hop, pepper and alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfell, big carbonation and a sticky sweet and peppery finish.

750ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-copper body. Sweet and rich. The bottle is over two years old and holds up well. Nice effervescent carbonation still. Nutty banana breadfruit candi sugar covered sweetness. This is a really solid Tripel.

AirForceHops (5665) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2015
750 ml bottle consumed yesterday. Purchased at H. E. B. Austin. Hazy gold in color with thin lasting head. Aroma shows dusty yeast, clove, weak bananas, light black pepper. The is the same with the yeast not as chewy or full like others in the style. Also a light alcohol tone. Not bad to drink but it did take me a good amount of time to get through a snifter. Perhaps I wasnít in the mood for the style. Yeaaaaah

Bottle. A golden color with a white head. A touch of the Belgian delight but without the right balance. It felt a little out of balance.
