3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amoma is yeasty and spicy, pours a cloudy gold color. Small head, not a lot of lacing. Spicy and hoppy. Mouthfeel is very nice. Nice tripel, but there are much better ones out there.

Good Belgian ale. Citrus, spicy, and fruity flavor. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fruity, spicy and yeasty/estery nose - quite typical belgian ale aroma.
Light amber - heavy carbonation grows a huge rocky head.
Spicy and fruity notes but also a clear ethanol burn and
some fusel when exhaling.
Body is quite light and the taste has been forgotten five seconds after the last sip.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden with a lot of small bubbles.
Both aroma and flavour reminds me of weissbier.
Wellbalanced with a warm alcohol-feel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber with a bubbly, frothy head. Weissbier comes to mind as I try to sence the aroma(which is slight spicy) and flavor of this one - but what is it more specificly? I don't know...there's a clear yeast presence along with a fruity sweetness and sourness...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice beer overall. Amber color, decent spice aroma and full-bodied flavor. Can't say I'd prefer this even over some other Belgians or some of the good American copies, but certainly worth trying once, I suppose.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lofty -- but quickly fading -- off-white head above a nice, hazy gold hue. Soft malts (sweet caramel) with an active carbonation. Sour, slightly tart and a little bitter. Sticky and cloying in the finish (one of its qualities I really didn't like). Overall, not bad, but this one didn't do much for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange and hazy color with a great, frothy, tight head. Bright esters and a little classic Belgian sourness in the nose, followed by bread and citrus undertones. Nice malt and toasted bread following the initial spicy, citrusy taste. A little tart on the mouth, but not unpleasant.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is alcohol and belgian yeast esters. Hazy auburn color with explosive head and excellent lacing, appearance for a tripel doesn't get much better than this. Flavor is the downfall hear. Slightly salty and rotten. Astringant and even cloying on the palate. A drinkable belgian but not even close to good.
