12oz can. Clear golden color with white head. Nice spicy yeast, dusty pale malt, candi sugar, light booze aromas. Medium body with soft carbonation. Big bready, dusty cracker malt base brew with some spicy, earthy flavors, and a candi sugar sweetness____nice spicy bitter alcohol twang to finish---good.

Super hazy orange and cloudy amber coloured body with a thin, fast dying tan head. Aroma of honey, coriander seed, wheat, yeast, bread, curacao and a lot of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Large wheat and yeast presence at first with a strong curacao and orange flavour as well, with a lot of alcohol coming through in the taste near the end. Aftertaste shows a subdued bread and grain flavour with a lot of honey and peach tastes, but the alcohol and curacao notes are the strongest. Overall, a decent tripel with perhaps too much alcohol and/or wheat notes. Nice to try and having a tripel in a can is actually a pretty neat thing. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom), DC on 13-January-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 08-July-2014.

Can thanks to Nathan. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong clove, banana, yeast, and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with sweet banana, clove, citrus and light dry finish. Decent.

Clear golden yellow pour with almost zero head. Fruity nose . Nice phenolic and Belgian spices in the taste. Dangerously drinkable for 9%.

From the can. Pale clear pour with light white head. Bready, floral hop aroma. Taste is smooth clean malt, slightly sweet with spicy pepper and biscuit notes. Tasty.

12 oz. can, thanks to Carlson. Pours light gold, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is bubblegum, straw, biscuit dough, and bananas. Very sweet aroma, with a nice touch of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, chewy, creamy, with a smooth, easy aftertaste. This is a nice attempt at a Tripel, with a lot of yeasty notes, but it is much too sweet, and has practically no hop bitterness or dryness. If it weren’t for the style expectations, this could be a pretty nice, yeasty, high gravity cream ale, but it is not a Tripel.

I received this in a trade. This is reviewed from notes. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow/orange color with a nice one finger white foamy head that died at a moderate pace and ends up leaving rarely any lacing. The smell had a large amount of coriander spices and leading into a decent amount of Belgian spices that end up allocating itself into a nice Belgian sweetness from some candied fruits. The taste was nice and sweet and spicy with the previously mentioned flavors entering in and leading to a spicy sweet aftertaste and a quick dry spicy sweet finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium and gave a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed just right for the style and for me. Overall, darn glad I found these notes as this was memorable enough to say something on. Good Tripel worthy of having again.

Hazy yellow with thin head. Banana, clove, candied sugar, and Belgian yeast in the the flavor and aroma. Pretty solid.

Bomber shared with friends. Pours cloudy golden with a tall white head. The aroma is a little rough around the edges with very heavy banana esters and sugar with notes of blunt grains. The palate is heavy and a little sticky. Like many American brewers’ interpretations of Belgian beers, Aviator’s Tripel just pounds my palate with esters and a sticky, sugary palate. Lots and lots of candy banana is in the flavor with heavy handed clove notes. I have had worse tripels though. The finish brings out vegetal suggestions. I want a tripel to be more nuanced, balanced and dry. This is like a bull in china shop. It’s a good beer for some, perhaps not so much for some others.
