3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. A vigorous pour elicits only a small head on this hazy golden amber beer. Aroma is spicy, cloves, banana, a little floral aroma. Flavor is spicy again with cloves, bread, herbal and floral flavors, and a kind of cotton candy note. A little thin, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This Tripel has a hazy orange pour with light brown and gold colors at the edges of he glass, I did not get a head even though I poured the bottle fast into the glass, I got a small cover of white bubbles in the center of the glass and very fine ring at the edges, swirling the glass made a temporary thin cover that lasted a moment before going away, a harder swirl makes a thicker cover, carbonation appears to be light in this beer, I see small trails of tiny bubbles flowing up the sides of the glass but for the most part, it is hard to see through the glass because of the haze, there were a few spots of lacing on the glass as I drank, I found a thin layer of light colored sediment on the bottom of the bottle,
this beer had light fruit aromas of pear, orange and faint lemon, alcohol esters, and there is mild floral scents in the background,
the flavors consisted of light citrus fruit, pear, has a light pepper and spice flavor along with alcohol ester, a light fruit sweetness,
and the finish was pretty dry with citrus fruit sour and some alcohol dryness on the palate, and a light grain flavor in the background,
mouth feel is ok, not flat but a little under carbonated, and had a little creamy feel on the tongue, but it is a little thicker on the palate than what I would expect, I think more carbonation would help, more carbonation would help the mouth feel and the aromas and flavors,
the alcohol is hidden pretty well, an ok Tripel beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub last December. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a slightly darkened golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is of pear, clove, apple, yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Taste brings a bit more booz along with some moderate spicing and general fruitiness. Feel is medium with good carbonation and some warmth. Drinks fairly well and was a pretty good brew.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a cloudy golden/amber color with little to no head.big aroma with the fruitness of the hops and yeasty come out. spice presence too with clove works it’s way out. Palate has a nice malt texture as well. Flavor is nicely sweet like candy with the fruitiness and spices coming through in the taste as well. Palate is lightly sticky with a lingering spice note that is quite enjoyable. I’ve rated a few triples lately and this one is up there with the best. but does not top my list of triples.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The smell is citrus, fruits, oils, and some residual sweetness. The look is cloudy, golden in color, not too much head. The taste is sweet, fruits, candi sugar, hides the alcohol well, but leaves many areas unfullfilled.
