3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong, fruity aroma has a yeasty overtone and a malty hint. Pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a whitish head that departs rather quickly. Lip-smacking fruity flavor has sour apple and hop-bitter undertones plus hints of malt and butterscotch, a touch of sweetness that nicely balances the sour and bitter. Smooth texture has good body, but fizz is lacking. A tasty tripel, worth seeking whilst it’s available.

Crisp and clean aroma. Quite drinkable and extremely refreshing. An outstanding beer for the dog days of summer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild spice aroma to start this beer off, pours a hazy straw, with a thin white head. Light fruit flavor, with a touch of spicing, finishes dry. Very light mouthfeel, with no noticeable alcohol. A middle of the road, nothing out of the ordinary Tripel. Still very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at the Ginger Man, 8/3/12
Aroma: This one has a rather fruity nose, with a good amount of Belgian yeast, and spice note
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color, with a thick, white head, and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The flavor is medium-plus sweet, with a good yeastiness, some funk, and some spice
Palate: It has a medium body, with a feel that is creamy and smooth, and a soft carbonation
I really enjoyed this one. Three of us ordered this beer at the same time, and we all agreed that is was a quite good example of the style. It is a touch on the sweet side, but the sweetness, and everything else for that matter, works here.

This was really tasty. I went through this quickly. Very subtle farmhouse notes. A little spice and it adds up to a great beer. My favorite of the anniversary beers that I have tasted.

Draft. Pours a hazy yellow color. Notes of banana, candi sugar, noble hops, cinnamon, and grass. Nothing stands out.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an average cheddar yellow with a nose of weak hay, light bready straw, and a touch of honeyed peach. Flavor is watery hay with stale sweetbread and lightly roasted dark fruit. Watery on the tongue. A mess.
