3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange body with a sparse white ring of head. The aroma is quite refreshing and floral with spicy notes and bread. Flavour is somewhat watery and thin. There are some spicy notes along with pear and fruit flavours. Decent

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
"this is an ok beer. it holds up slightly better to other beers of the style than their chocolate stout does. it does nothing to separate itself, however. maybe worth trying, but not going back to."

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle -
The beer pours out a pale golden yellow body, clear with a 1" white airy cap. Aroma is slightly sweet, a touch spicy, some corriander and rubber. Aroma has that candi-malt flavor blended with dried pitted fruit and not overly spicy. Residual sweetness is left behind which helps out the fruity notes come out a little more. Not bad, and a decent introduction to the style for a newbie.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I will just say I liked this but it needs to warm up because if you drink it cold there is a rubbing alcohol aftertaste. most of the other reviews explained it pretty well weather they liked it or not.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy whtie head- fades a bit though. Aroma is toasty, spicy phenolics, honey sweetness and some off fruitiness- some banana and apple. Flavor is toasty malts, bready, grass, herbs spicy peppery phenolics and fruity ester with a moderate sweetness in the end. A bit too sweet and not dry enough.

Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus spicy yeast, a nit of alcohol. Grain on the nose and plalate. A little banana. Not terrible, not great.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not true to style and the coriander they mention on the label was nowhere I could find. The alcohol burn was up front and I could sense a wee bit of banana behind the very forward bitterness. Overall, unbalanced and with a sour finish. One of the few times Bison has disappointed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours slightly hazy orange with a thin white head. Odd combination of grass, fruit, coriander, grain, yeast, and alcohol. Objectively, I would say this is a bit harsh and unbalanced, and a pretty odd tripel. But subjectively I find the particular combination of flavors rather enjoyable, and would buy it again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very slightly hazy orange/golden coloured body with a super-thin white head. Aroma of light coriander seed, wheat and curacao. Some spices noticeable also. Light to Medium-bodied; Sharp pungent spices with yeast and wheat noticeable in the taste. Aftertaste bitter, but shows coriander seed and subtle spices. Overall, a decent beer - a bit more effort and it might be worth drinking! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 28-May-2005 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
