’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, dry with prickly carbonation. Sweetish malt, vague touch of honey. Typical tripel spice. Light ripe fruits in the background. Dry finish. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Not really blown away by this beer, but perhaps that’s because I don’t like tripels over 8.22%. Anyway, it’s quite sweet and certainly yeast-forward. Plenty of ripe, juicy and sugary fruits at play. There are much worse tripels out there - in the States AND in Belgium, mind you - but this one was still just OK. (3.4)
Bottle at Bruce’s, London - thanks to Ken! Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold with a slight, frothy white head. Nose holds lots of yeast, mushy bananas, sugary wheat. Medium to big sweet flavor, mild lemony tang, yeasty and lightly doughy wheat. Medium to full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sugary, vaguely syrupy finish, plenty of doughy wheat, yeast, mellow lemon and banana. Drinkable in small doses. (3.4)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a mostly clear body, golden in color, and with some microfloaties. Dense, two-finger white head. The aroma is a tad alcoholic, with white sugar, pale malts, lemon and some banana, generic fruityness and some pine cones, grass and spices. It’s full-bodied and quite effervescent, not to an annoying degree though. Some metallic notes. Lightly warming, with some white sugar, even though it’s quite dry. Bitterness, spice notes, yellow apples and banana hints. Lasting bitter and lighlty warming finish. Pretty nice this one, although a tad warming I think. Easy to drink though, and quite tasteful. 130823

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale golden color with a white head. Smells fairly sweet with lots of bready malt and table sugar. A moderate fruitiness to it, mostly pears and apples with a touch of banana. Good yeastiness to it. The flavor is sweet with lots of fruit character. A touch of citrus, some banana, pear, and apple to go with a sweet bread and sugar malt base. Mild yeast and a very light spice note.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dirty gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma seems to have pineapple ester. Med body. Flavor is pineapple. Might be a banana undernote. Or not. Surprising. Yeast/spice gives pineapple? Tasty.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head - looks quite dull. Aroma is fairly yeast, with some dry apples and hay. Flavour is characterized primarily by the yeast and dry apples, not a traditional tripel by any means, but not a cloying sweet American "tripel" either. Finishes yeasty and apple-forward, with a medium duration. Decent, albeit forgettable tripel.
