Batch #34: This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind very little lacing and a hazy straw yellow colored body behind. THe aroma is a mild yeasty one and the mouthfeel is smooth with a slight tingly bite to it. The flavor is a mixture of fruity textures with csome clove banana and a high alcohool content noted.

Impressive lasting crown of luxurious foam. Rich, pure vanilla sugared floral aroma...By floral I mean strong, crisp and almost masculine--no roses or pansies here. Noticed notes of subtle lime vanilla as well as cork. Creamy, well-blended and perfect sweet-tart blend are other descriptors that came to mind.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 Honey cloudiness with subtle nose hints tripel to-die-for, but a surprising peppery undertones is so distracting, I must say the least fav of my triple experiences despite its head ;).

Pretty golden color with an attractive white head and a subtle spice nose. Lots of coriander spice with very fruity, almost vinous flavors. Sharp yeast in the finish. Nice body and a good beer.

Golden cloudy color with large head that stays. Sweet fruity flavor that has a nice hoppy spicey taste. Sweeter than other tripel's I have had.Nicely balanced. Finishes dry and long with a little alcohol feel in the mouth. Great american tripel.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Batch 33: Hot damn, Timdanchanta is 21! He secured this one up in Illinois a couple of weeks ago for his first "legal" beer. So anyway, poured a pure golden color with a long-lasting thick white head. Flavor was fruity, with a little bit of sourness thrown in there - the complexity is admirable. A terrific beer, and a very happy b-day to my good friend Tim.

Batch 33: Cloudy appearence with just a tad bit of sourness. I could problably taste more of the flavor if I did not have a Macanudo beforehand. An honorable 1st beer for my 21st.
