Big bottle outdoors at N 3rd. Two of these babies with 4 lbs of chicken wings on a beautiful late summer evening. Great pop on opening, thick foamy lasting head, gorgeous glassware. Sweet, rich, flowery flavor - a hint of spice, just yummy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One that has always been around and I don’t know why I’ve never rated it. Opened like a cork gun Straw colored, slightly hazy, pours with a frothy head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is yeasty very bread like, fruity like bananas mixed with dandelions. Flavor is very sweet with a tinge of bitterness on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Generous white head over a nice hazy golden body. Huge pop upon opening, but no gushing at all. It smells green and spicy. Peppery nose with light mint, sweet candi sugar, beautiful belgian yeast, chamomille and fitting honey malt. High carbonation, fluffy medium body. Very herbal palate, dry, flowery. Balancing bitter finish. Light alcohol notes. Terrific tripel, brilliant balance.

Poured with small head and slightly cloudy haze. Nice fizziness on the tongue and the appropriate sweet/dry balance. Quite a nice example of the style. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange bread and honey aroma, sweet. Medium golden amber clear (before dregs) with pillowy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with light-medium carbonation. Starts sweet, with bubblegum, sugar - almost saccharin - Belgian ale yeast, and some banana. No acidity. Alcohol warming toward the finish, with light dry bitterness and sweetness. After is muted sweet with decent chalky bitterness. A fairly balanced tripel, but just a bit too sweet.
