Bright yellow in color, fruity with a bit of spice. Triple that reminds me of a witbeir.

Spicy cinnamon and fruity taste. Lemon and pepper flavors as well. Bright yellow color with foamy aticky head til the end. Had this poured from draft at Jerry's (north) in Chicago. Not bad for a tripel

My first tripel, so I decided on this 4pk..12oz bottle poured into tumbler..nice straw, hazy yellow..aroma of bananas, pears, maybe even little coriander or sage..for a high abv offering was very surprised at the flavor..Will definitely be trying a number of other tripels in the near future.

Good beer, nothing super interesting. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a light white head. Smells sweet, and a little bit wheat. Taste is similar. Smooth, wheat taste, not super interesting. Nice bottle otherwise. Hafar Noc Noc. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3514) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours an attractive, slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice white head. Strong, fruity aroma has an undertone of butterscotch and a hint of yeast. Scrumptious flavor fills the palate with apple, banana and butterscotch plus a hint of bitter hops that nicely balances the sweetness. Smooth, lively texture has good body and plenty of fizz to leave behind a slightly sweet, slightly hoppy bitter tingle. Recommended.

Nicely done tripel with clove and coriander notes. Average hops with herb and cirtus notes Had a better than expected malt body.

Bottle @ the mondial de la bière. A yellow beer with medium head. Smell is fruity and yeast like. Aroma is very fruity with wheat malt notes, near to Belgian style but more syrupy and sweet. Good beer just too much agrumes for me.

Bottle. Drank this one with Sean and Vin. Pours murky orange with a white, tall head. Aroma of spice and malts and yeast. Heavy body, with a strong finish. Great American tripel.

On tap at Spuyten Duyvil for the Big Woody event. Well after trying this one the fest should be called Big Winey. This one pours a hazy orange with a small white head.Aroma of white wine and oak. Big boozey flavor that seemed to be even stronger then 9.2%, slight oak notes as well. Although this beer was drinkable the wine was the dominant focus here and not the tripel.

Ah yes, the Allagash brew I’ve been searching for, that will push me into second place. Eat that, JoeMcPhee! Tap at Spuyten, like everyone else. Served too cold. "Lightly sour aroma reveals complexities when one closes the eyes and concentrates." That’s what I wrote on this sheet of paper, at least. Chardonnay and soft oak is, um, "sensual and delightful." Looks like my alter ego may have made a visit when I wrote this. Dry and flavorful, light kiwi and bread... bourbon? Tough to drink, but tasty. A bit oak dominated as it warms. I will now bask in the glory of seeing myself in second place.
