3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. bottles, poured to snifters, displaying a clear, golden tone, with a white, bubbly layer of foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was light cereal grain, hints of banana & spicy phenols, tart lemon, some ripened fruit as apple, and just a bit of sweetness on the edge. The taste was somewhat similar notes that started to warm up toward the finish, but also seemed to increase in sweetness at the same time, thus projecting a lack of favorable crispness, and a not very Tripel-like, unrefined nature.

Aroma is spices, citrus and light bananas. The flavor is spices, citrus, bubblegum, mildly beery and a thick and malty/slightly tart finish.

Poured with a smallish off-white head that soon settled and No lace. Aroma is malt wine yeast spice. Flavor is like aRoma a little on the Sweet side. Good body. Plastic in the aftertaste.

Good stuff, drinkable, sweet and very summery. Orange and banana feature heavily, with an appropriate tang of alcohol that makes it feel like some sort of elaborate vodka cocktail. Nice full offering in a season usually full of mild, light, and/or overspiced beers.

Bottle from the cellar. Still boozy and sweet, but I kinda like that. I can see where this could be a love or hate beer. For me it is on the upper end.

A: The pour is a pale golden yellow color with a finger of white head.
S: Quite sweet and heavy on the toffee and bread. A definite booziness as well as some apple cider. Some musty straw and maybe a bit of spice and yeast.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Not a very good tripel. Weird flavors and aromas.

pours an amazingly clear gold.. medium strength head, light spotty receipt lacing .. . pretty one dimensional, but still quite tasty.. . a filtered tripel, it seems to take some of the luster away from a fine product, needs more yeast and more complexity, BUT is quite amazing in that fact; smooth mouth, light, and a summers tripel.. hell, this would get you in so much trouble .. . an awesome tripel.. i really enjoyed its simplicity and layed back style.. . thanks john!! . .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Istk6I24GJE
