3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly clear pale yellow color with a hint of orange. Nearly no head. Aromas of wheat, berries, peaches, honey, and belgian yeast. Taste is smooth and dry. Nice fruity and floral flavor throughout. Spicy Belgian yeast flavor is strong in the finish. Slight alcohol burn in the finish too. This seems like a solid example of a tripel but its just not my favorite style. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled in April 2012. Pours hazy golden amber color with a small 1 finger foamy white head with poor retention, that reduces to nearly nothing. Small specks of lacing, and a small amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, banana, clove, pear, apple, pepper, grass, bread, bubblegum, herbal, earth, candi sugar, wheat, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good strength, balance, and complexity. Taste of lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, herbal, earth, wheat, bread, pepper, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of banana, lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, earth, wheat, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and complexity of flavors; no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel! Great flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Celebrating my 23rd Anniversary on the job with a Nineteenth Anniversary beer. Pours with a fizzy appeal ... the carbonation settles into an interesting island in the middle of the beer. This drinks with a full-on Belgian bearing, fruity and creamy ... mellow pineapple, red apple, yeast. This is some delicious stuff. (#4723, 8/8/2012)

This is a yeast dominated brew. Character of wheat malt. Flavors of tart apple, lemon zest, bread, some plantain, and golden raisin, then some spice as well. Finishes very dry, not much sweetness to it.

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.
