COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic "Tripple-style" ale contains hints of fruit, most notably plums, and was made with authentic Belgian candi crystals, organic malts, water, and yeast. The brew is balanced witha robust maltiness, a touch of coriander, and the subtle spiciness of organic Cascade hops.

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

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
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.

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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2010
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.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2010
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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2010
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a deep golden color with a faint orange hue. Nose was lightly fruity with some citrus, toasted malt and some grainy qualities. Finishes crisp and a little grainy.

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.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
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.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Tasted at GABF 2008. Hazy orange pour with thin head. Nose of grains and coriander. Flavor is yeast, wheat, spices and coriander.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2009
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.

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Pours a translucent glowing yellow with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is earthy, yeasty, fruity, some crisp hops, corn, cardboard. The flavor is earthy and fruity as well, some warmth, corn, some astringent hops, meh. Palate is a bit thin, some crispness. Not bad just very underwhelming.
