Beer strongly impact. A lot structured. Determined body and bitter. Adherent foam. Perhaps too much strongly.

wanted to try this style and see what the rage was about. Nice balance less hop than I expected, pleasant surprise, Detected a hint of fruit but nothing overwhelming about it, I could kind of taste the alcohol, I could sure feel it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tatsed in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in an Affligem chalice. Colour is light yellow, possibly straw. Clear with evident carbonation bubbles. Head is thick white and lasting. Aroma of cloves, spice and slight sweetness with a yeasty presence. All attributes found in the aroma are not present in the flavour. The flavour begins, continues and ends with a bitter acrid monotone theme. Unfortunate.

Not my favourite tripel but pretty good. Pale golden colour, fairly clear. The nose and flavour are dry and pleasantly spicy with hints of tropical fruit. I prefer triples with more fruit.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A delicious triple. Probably one of the best from the rare bunch that I have had. Hazy amber/orange pour with a frothy carbonated white head. Cotton candy, butternut, banana and pears in the flavour with a tart and peppery mouthfeel. Finishes spicy with hops and a silky smoothness on the tongue. Tender and fresh!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, cloudy golden-amber colour w/ good carbonation. Generous, fluffy white head. Nice lace. Yeasty & fruity aroma of banana, orange, pear, orange w/ some grassy hop notes. Firm, juicy, dry feel. Yeasty & fruity flavour that starts out sweet then gives way to a slight sourness. The finish is dry & peppery, leaving some herbal notes on the palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This triple pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thick, fizzy, off-white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet and fruity (orange) with a faint spiciness and a touch of sourness. The flavor is sweet and fruity (orange) with a slight sugar note, a little tin note and a slight spiciness. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry with a slight tingle on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
10.04.04 750 bottle that almost took my thumb off when I opened it. A rosey gold pour with small to medium white head, as tripels go. Aromas fresh, grapey, and light, but deeply vinous complexity. Clove and vanilla. Flavors are mild, little to no spicey bite. More grapes. Tingly and crisp eff. Overall, somewhat bland as Belgian trips go, but enjoyable nonetheless.
