tbsb (17) - san marcos, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
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.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Yeast and light spice aroma with light fruitiness. Yeast and fruity ester flavor with light spice and light malt. Medium bodied. Fruity esters and yeast linger with light spice.

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is fruit, light malt and yeast spice. Med body or better. Flavor is banana ester, malt, yeast/earth and some peppery spice. Might be clove. Rather tasty.

lb4lb (2482) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours golden. Smell is belgian yeast and spices. Taste is the same. Starts a bit dry but finishes sweet and gets sweeter as it warms. Too much so for my taste and a bit cloying, but to be fair, i donít really like the style much.

BeernWhiskeyHQ (18) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottled on: 12/14/2013 Appearance: Honey blonde body with a rich honey colored center. Hazy with a medium height- crisp white head that is thick and frothy Nose: Light Belgian style malt scents, honey and clove Palate: Wonderfully refreshing, bright and crisp. Fruits, pears, lemon zest, citrus, clove, light alcohol presence. Terrific mouthfeel, light and crisp Overall: Easily the best Tripel Iíve come across- Adelbertís beers have such a good balance of character and you get the sense that you arenít missing anything in the beer. Itís heavier in alcohol content, yet you wouldnít know it. Extremely enjoyable and highly recommended. -BeerandWhiskeyHQ.com

Thebullshornbar (72) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Definitely one of the more fruit forward triples thats packs in the spices. Very juicy with strong flavors of pineapple, pear, clove, starfruit, honey and phenols. This beer is quite pleasant until the finish, where the juicier notes tend to linger on without anything (typical tartness) to balance out this beer. Overall this is a slightly different triple that really works off of a creamy and juicer palate.

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Very cloudy orange pour. Thin wisps of white head. Aroma is honey, toast, orange and lemon. Flavor is the same. Lots of honey and orange. Bits of ginger and other spices. Light carbonation and a pretty thick palate that reminds me of something like orange juice. I'd like it a bit lighter and brighter, but pretty solid overall

750ml thanks to after4ever! Always nice trying something decent from the land of Texas. This was straight down the middle your average triple. Hints of light fruit and spices, bit of lingering palate. Nice beverage.
