kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours hazy orange/yellow with thick lacy head. Smells yeasty and sweet. Taste is very refreshing. Lots of yeast and malt, sweet, some sour, lots of spices. Somewhat sticky sweet finish, but still refreshing. Lingers a bit with sweet spiciness.

bellco33 (286) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2014
On tap at Willibrew: Pours a clear golden with a frothy white head. Little lacing, no head retention. Aroma of melon, oranges, coriander, earth, fall leaves, belgian yeast and funk. Taste is a bit hop forward (odd for the style) and is peppery, lemon, and funk. Light body, full flavor, perfect carbonation. This is super enjoyable.

Great tripel with a very hoppy characteristic. Fresh japanese hops make it as it is. Great one.

On draught at Deep Ellum, Summer 2012
Small amount of white head tops a somewhat hazy body. Retention is poor, certainly nothing like the regular trippel.
Plenty of lemon and orange in the nose, with some earthy, leafy, rustic/raw hoppiness. Certainly fresh, no denying that, but either the keg was just way too shaken up (unlikely at Deep Ellum) or rather this just was very unfiltered and the hop particles have stubbornly not dropped out. Anyways, itís very raw and aided by plentiful house yeast esters, creating a milkshake of hop acid, citrus, resin and bananan/clove. Medium strength, no alcohol felt, at least.
Quite bitter and acidic, though the yeast, plentiful supple maltiness that is Allagash trippel and soft texture to the body all help allay the hop bite. The hops are good, I guess, but I just think that trippels, for the most part, are so much about the malt and yeast that thereís just very little room for high alpha hoppiness. May just be not keeping an open mind, but anyways, this didnít quite mesh for me.

deekyn (1167) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014
A- pours a straw yellow with a faint off white head and no lacing. S- Belgium yeast, straw, Granny Smith apple, raw olive, oregano, basil, clove, green pepper, light honeydew melon, and citrus blossom. M- light to medium sticky body with a sweet light to medium palate. Mild carbonation. T- Malty and citrus in the beginning. Melon and pear. Some dough. Wicked prominent bubble gum in the middle. Moves towards clove, mild cinnamon and orange. Ending is clean and efficient. Mostly bitter hops and grasses with some lingering grapefruit.

Radiant hazy yellow gold some lace and head. Aroma is fresh yeast, slight tart funk, not ripe pear fruits. Flavor is malty & fruity sweet with skins, light yeast, late spice, Creamy mouthfeel. Itís unusual in look and body but really pleasant.

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught@Lord Hobo. Clear orange-golden color, decent creamy white head. Belgian yeasty, herbal hoppy Sorachi Ace aroma. Medium-bodied. Very sweet fruity front, then Belgian-style yeast, green herbal hoppyness. Evident Sorachi Ace gooseberries flavor. Quite sweet and original as SA is used.

Caytinator (939) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2013
1/2 pint on tap. Perfect pour, gold, clear, nice lacing, decent head. Aroma is good as well--fruity, with apricots & nectar. Taste is pleasant bitterness and sweet fruits, appropriately complex. Nice pleasant palate, tapers well for the style, not abrupt. Very nice tripel overall, instant American classic, I think.
