3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I brought this beer to the tasting because I didn’t want to drink it all myself. It pours to a golden body with a thin white head. The aroma is Belgian but light. The flavor is nicely spicy, yeasts, malts. The palate is medium bodied and so-so.

light brown pour w/ a small tan head. Smells of belgian yeast and orange rind. Palate is carbonated smooth and creamy. Flavor is fairly typical sweet belgian. Overall a solid brew shared by ???

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange, smells of fruits, banana and possibly orange. The taste was strong and rich with alcohol with fruity hints. It was nice going down and warmed me up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz - Aroma is sharp with yeast, candi sugar, and spice. Pours a cloudy copper with some tiny bubbles, a small head and decent lacing. Flavor is also a bit sharp. The sweet yeasty taste is quickly overrun by the spicyness. I wonder if it would have mellowed with age? Leaves a tingle on the tounge. Not bad, but could use a little time to blend the flavors together.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vanilla bean and spice nose - very nice aroma, although not real strong. Golden body with big head and good lacing. Taste is mostly sweet, some dry spices towards the end, then a long sweet sticky finish (maybe almost cloying?). Worth trying, but not my favorite triple. Found this at Circle Liquors in Trenton NJ

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear bronze color with thin white head. Very tight active carbonation. Aroma is a very strong yeast with a hint of a clove character. Not very diverse. Yeasty falvor, tangy and sharp fruityness. Fairly full feel and finish, nice round and sweet malts present. Decent strength and presence. Fairly nice flavor profile rescues what started as a one sided yeast based aroma.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An orange beer with no head. The aroma is primarily of alcohol, but also has some spicy notes. The flavor is very sweet - and very simple - it is of alcohol and coriander, that gives it a dry burning end. Too simple for me - maybe a couple of years of cellaring would do it good?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep copper with aroma of floral spices, yeasty esters, and some vinous hops. Tastes bready malty, fruity, hoppy, candi sugary, citrusy. The finish gets a bit cloying, and the balance could use some work, but this one isn’t bad.
