1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. I’m not quite sure what to make of this beer. I poured it as I would any other beer, and it didn’t have any head, and sort of resembled apple cider, which seemed a bit odd, so i just thought it had a high ABV, whatever. Then after smelling and tasting, I’m thinking I either got a bad batch, or this is just a neglected beer. It kinda tastes like it was a good beer at some point, and maybe improper beer storage, etc made it what it is now. I’ve had a few other offerings from ABC all of which were pretty good, but this is the worst. oh well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008.
Ultra-light yellow-white color! Very nice lacing. Super light aroma. Its flavor, though, is so much better. Light, but just a little sweet. You can detect a little alcohol presence amongst the lemon and hops. Good, but their dubbel is better in my opinion. Could use more alcohol for a triple.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish brown with lots of sediment. The head is small and white (even after a vigorous pour) and quickly diminishes to a thin collar.
The aroma is very subdued - bready grains and some bananas and cloves.
The flavor is sweet malts, a little banana and clove, and a pretty harsh alcoholic bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full and slightly syrupy with almost no carbonation.
Overall, not that great of a tripel - it’s under-carbonated and pretty subdued other than the alcohol.
