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.

Excellent taste, it taste more like a whit should. Great malt with a balance of hops. Fulfills traditional expectations of a tripel yet brings a modern hue of spice. A great conversation piece.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appeared a medium/dark-orange in the glass with minimal head.
It smelled stongly of citrus fruit and slight hops.
It tasted fruity/whiney with little bite.
It was definitely a smooth drink, which is probably why the menu says "limit 3".

Tap at HDG Daze of the Devil. Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite nice and spicy. Apricot and light orange peel. A bit of clove and light banana with a soft sweetness, light honeyish character but the beer is generally quite dry and drinkable. Pepper and lightly alcoholic

On draft; poured a gold color. Aroma of banana, yeast and spices. Flavor was pretty dry to me. Pretty ordinary for the style.
