3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy copper with a thin white lacing. Aroma is alcohol, Belgian yeast, and candi sugar. Flavor is sweet candi sugar and Belgian yeast. Pretty good, but seems to rely too much on sweetness and candi sugar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, nice peach, apricot, some white grape notes into some honey, crackery malts with a hint of doughy yeast, some slight herbal and floral notes as well come in to balance. Taste is a mix of peach, pear, some pepper into herbal, floral notes, nice honey, cracker malt middle with some spice, finishing sweet, but not over the top.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of candied red fruit, banana, and a hint of mint with cereal grain, and warming alcohol. Appears clear gold, light foam, not much lace. Tastes of candy sugar balanced with bitter hay. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, very good!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at brewery. Deep golden with small head. Sweet with light Belgian yeast. Again, these beers are technically to spec, but very bland

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Sweet, slightly syrupy, decadent, notes of berry and spice, everything I love about a nearly perfect Tripel. Only slight defect is that you can definitely taste the 9% ABV in my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, fruit and spices. Medium body with flavors of bananas, sweet spices, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity with a yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a great beer. It has a great sweet and fruit taste at the end. It may be high in alcohol but you cannot tell. There are hints of banana at the end. If you like Dragonmeads Final Absolution this may be better.
