deepeary (207) - Ontario, - AUG 15, 2014
500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy caramel colour, white head. Smells yeasty,, has some fruity esters. Taste hits the same notes, a bit on the dry side. Light, super stealthy abv. Pretty tame brew. Aftertaste developed a bad sour/bitter note as it warmed up.

pushkinwow (2150) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
500ml bottle from the brewery via Nick. Orange copper with a nice billowy eggshell head. Belgian yeast, light allspice and fresh bread, very light citrus presence that makes this quite refreshing, light apple and faint malt as well. Moderate+ carbonation, moderate body, bitter, becomes nicely dry with yeast, spice, peach skin and bit of bread. Very enjoyable.

GregClow (2927) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Sunset golden-orange with a slight haze and a thin & persistent white head. Punchy aroma with notes of stone fruit - esp. apricot - and tart apple, and spicy hints of clove and allspice. Flavour starts with a simple malt sweetness with a hint of candi sugar, but starts to develop layers of complexity as it goes across the palate, especially once it warms. Apricot, nectarine, peppery yeast, clove, lemon zest, cut grass, candied orange and more all come through at one point or another. Finish has a slight medicinal character that is the only off-note for me. Otherwise, an excellent beer.

Spab (2609) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
500 ml bottle from brewery retail store. Pours a murky rust colour with large eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is gently tart fruit (apple, peach), spice, bread and floral hoppiness. Flavour is most prominently of lightly tart apple/pear and peach, bread, clove, flowers, and hints of funk and pepper. Medium to medium plus body. Drying finish. Quite drinkable tripel.

neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
500 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a branded stem glass. Pours cloudy orange-caramel with a moderate beige head that mostly remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of caramel, peach, apple, clove and Belgian spices, along with grass and touches of licorice and pepper. The flavour is lightly sweet with a complex, fruity-spicy character. Notes of apricot, caramel, grass and Belgian spice come through as well with a subtle pepperiness. The finish is long and dry with malts and spice. On the palate it is medium in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent tripel, but lighter and drier than most examples. A nice example, but for the ABV, it could be more complex. 2014-05-21

shaynsawchuk (580) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
500 mL bottle. Pours hazy amber with a nice white cap. Nose is stone fruits (peach/apricot), candi sugar, floral hop, spice and sweet malt. Mildly sweet cut with balancing alcohol and a bit of bitterness. Surprisingly clean and thirst quenching. Moderate plus body with above average carbonation. Tasty, but not as aggressively flavoured as many tripels.

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
(On tap at the brewery, April 17 2014) Pours a quite hazy pale orange with a small white head of fine bubbles, a little lacing. Aroma of candy sugar, a little pit fruit and orange peel, white bread, floral/spicy hop/yeast character. Flavour is cereal malts, faintly sweet but with very little candy sugar character, citrus, a bit herbal, light clove, low ester character. Lightly bitter throughout but finishes noticeably dry for a tripel, noble-type hops apparent in that finish, a bit peppery. Body medium, carb pretty soft, no booze noticeable. A crisp and refreshing take on a tripel, not mind-blowing but good, could use a sunny day.
