This beer pours a hazy gold color, with little head. Aroma is some what sour with hints of fruit and spice, bread and booze. Taste is crisp and a hint of apple with a slight bitterness. You can taste the alcohol in this one. Somewhat refreshing, but a heavy hard hitter.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Splendido esempio di tripel belga, altamente sui generis ed incredibilmente buona al mio palato. Credo non sia nemmeno troppo fresca, ed avrà viaggiato tanto e male. Si presenta giallo ocra, con una schiuma saponosa che scompare velocemente. Al naso lievito, agrumi e un po’ di resina, data dal luppolo. Lippolatura atipica, che rende unica questa tripel molto amara per il genere, visto il finale secco e fermo dato dalla poca carbonatazione e dal ritorno del luppolo. Avverto il pane ed il pompelmo, oltre che qualcosa di resinoso anche in bocca. La chiusura è veramente ideale. Birra abboccata, tra le mie preferite fin qui.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: Total Wine & More in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Purchased: Sept. 9, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 16, 2014
Poured a golden, straw, semi-hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. No bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass initially, but then came up after a few sips. Sporadic spots of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.77)
Smelled banana, cloves, sugary Belgian spices, kiwi, green grapes, faint all-spice, honeycomb and light cinnamon. Nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.09)
Tasted real close to the nose, but better in all aspects. Very nice. The sugary sweet Belgian spices dominated here. Also cloves, banana, green grapes, kiwi, caramel, all-spice and sugary honey notes. (Taste - 4.25)
Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, astringent finish. (Feel - 4.15)
This was a very good Tripel. I wish I had a 6-pack. (Overall - 4.15)

Serving: Draft. Straight gold pour with a thin white head. Sweet nose with hint of yeast, banana liquor, and spices. Downright sweet on the tongue at first with straight forward Belgian yeast notes, banana, and a light spice. Clean finish. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Not complex but decent.

Smooth as hell. The most balanced beer I’ve ever had.. Border like to much lacks impact but still impressive. Hides the alcohol well.. Nice brew

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from tipples. Definitely my first canned tripel. Pours clear golden colored with a creamy half finger head on top. Dusty funky aroma, some light banana esters, yeasties, dry. Flavor is sweet banana esters, some pears, maybe a hint of spice, honey, and light yeast funk lingering on the palate. The 9.2% shows on this, with low plus carbonation. Was not expecting that until I took a sip as the nose is very much traditional dry dusty Belgian tripel, but the taste is very much like other overly sweet American attempts at the Tripel. Not bad but a little heavier than I want in this style.
