Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours cloudy deep golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of boozy malts. Taste is light dry, booze and marzipan, with sugary sweetness all the way. Meh-.

355ml bottle. Orange/gold pour. Aroma is white wine and tangy fruits. Flavor is surprisingly smooth for 10% and surprisingly tripel-like. Honey and citrus and some smooth nougaty caramel malt. Nice.

Fľaša. Tmavo zlatá farba, pena skoro žiadna. Vôňa ovocná, korenistá, alkoholová. Chuť ovocná, jemne karamelová, korenistá a samozrejme alkoholová. Alkohol dosť vyráža. Telo plnšie, suchá dochuť.

Bottle by Fajry, thanks. Aroma typical Belgian trippelly, spicy, light fruity. Clear deep golden colour with a spark. Taste is heavy, spicy, candy noticed. Classic. Good one. Rather hard drinking though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This US Tripel is less hoppy than it’s traditional compatriotes from Europe - which is quite funny, seen the fact that the US brewers often tend to overhop their beers. But that’s not bad at all. You’ll get a full load of dried fruit, a high alcoholic warmth and a sticky finish as if you’d had a 12 years old Tawny Port.
A rather hoppy european beer style interpreted by a US brewery - that might have been a overhopped bitter-bomb. But no, this brew is smooth, warming and even on the sweeter side for a Tripel. Very enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color with a white 2" head, strips of lace. Good aroma of malt and hops. Taste is sweet malt that adds full-bodied hops on the swallow, both malt and hops drifting comfortably to a medium finish. Really deceptive for 10% abv, so beware! A tasty, hoppy Abbey Tripel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A tasty little beer brewing day morning treat. Velvety smooth looking liquid gold with a thin and effervescent white head. Tasty notes or wheat, basement, honey, caramel, black pepper, bubblegum, light booze grace the nostrils. Happily, the same flavours come out, some vinousness as well. Fuller bodied than expected with a slick, almost syrupy mouthfeel and mid light carbonation. A tasty brew.
