3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can. Moderately cloudy, yellow-ish golden colour with small to average, foamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, snow white head reminding of beaten egg-white. Fruity and spicy, yeasty aroma, slightly sweet-ish brady and biscuity malty background, notes of yellow stone fruit. Taste is moderately dry hoppy, slightly peppery spicy yeasty, fruity notes of yellow stone fruit, sightly bready, minimally sweet, malty basis. Easy drinkable, well hidden alcohol; kind of a basic, prototype tripel waiting for variation and stepwise refinement.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin white foamy head. There were a lot of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was good with lemon citrus and yeasty bread. The beer had a creamy texture. There is a sweet malty initial taste. It was a bit too sweet for me. A slight hoppy flavor comes out in the middle, but not enough to balance the sweetness. The sweetness overpowers on the finish leaving a bit of a honey flavor.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is mostly malt, bread and some spices (coriander). The taste is an excellent malt rush. The ABV is fairly well hidden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single 355 ml can from broken-up Christmas sampler cases from Sobeys Liquor, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden straw yellow, with streams of active carbonation, and a brief milky head. Nose is sweet banana, bubblegum, clove, other very ripe tropical fruit - all standard for a tripel. Flavor has pronounced sweet banana and candy, with a welcome lack of alcohol heat. Goes down like a soft drink. Thin-bodied, and aftertaste lingers very briefly. Very well-done, but not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, tasting at Mattís
Blond color, relatively clean, with small head. The aroma is estery and boozy. Sweet and boozy, with shallow flavors, more fruity than spicy. Classic example of fake Belgian mess with the alcohol trying to balance the sugar.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Sweet, lemon and lots of yeast. Clear gold with a decent white. Sweet, grainy, yeasty and an estery finish. Not a fan.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can, pours a clear pale golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma is very floral, with tons of fruity esters, Belgian yeast and floral notes. Flavour is fairly sweet and floral, with lots of Belgian yeast, fruity esters, floral soapy notes and a some alcohol. Finishes floral, alcoholic and fruity. Pretty solid, but far from an authentic tripel. Okay.
