3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: vibrant gold; nearly opaque from the unfiltered haze. Volatile, with a large & fluffy white head that leaves large lace chunks behind. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast. Coriander, clove, some banana-like esters, pears, semi-tart apple skins, and some finishing white pepper spice. Highly carbonated, almost evaporates from the palate. Undertones of earth & bread with lots of clove, rotten banana, and bubblegum from the yeast, lightly sweet. Some mild pears, white grapes, and even apricots in the background. A touch of white pepper & coriander finish things off. Alcohol warms things up a bit. A very nice take on the tripel style from Bells.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with a plain white head that settles over a cloudy orangey/amber liquid. Some very slight sulfury notes in the nose that are whisked away by a nice fruity-yeasty aroma. it’s a stunning mix of Belgian candi sugar, tropical fruits, sweet chewy malts, bitter hops and alcohol. You can actually taste each individual flavor component here, ultra-complex and delicious! It finishes as awesome as it began: kick-ass bitter, fruity and potent.

Draft at soup spoon. Looks nice. Heavy dough yeasty aroma. Smells sweet too. Decent level of carbonation. Tastes a lot like it smells, sweet at yeast/doughy. Ok.

tap. Golden with small head. Sweet tripel-like with yeasty bite. Complex sweetness, maybe some cotton candy and fruit? Awesome.

From a 750ml from Bells store. Interesting, spicy and herbal. Definitely a touch of heat, but still somewhat refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750ml bottle from the general store. Pours light fizzy golden orange with airy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and citrus. Taste is right on par with aroma, also some bread, apple, and banana flavors. Admittedly one of my least favorite styles, I’m really not sure why I felt inclined to try this.

Draft. Slightly hazy golden pour. Slight white head. Spicy Belgian nose on this, bright, refreshing, malty, yeasty and some bitter and sour on the finish. Really well crafted!

Aroma was a wild metallic. Appearance was orange with a nice white head. Taste was sweet but bitter, sour, metallic, wild. Definitely Belgian yeast notes. Palate felt thick and foamy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a white head. Sweet bread and caramel malts with some citrus, mild banana, and peach. Light spice notes, a bit of straw, yeast, and dough. Tastes kind of watery, actually. Some decent caramel and bread sweetness, dough, and fruit. Lots of straw, mild spice, and yeast.
