Great effort at a Belgian style tripel! Poured a large foamy frothy white head and a load of lace. Aroma is subdued. Flavorís spot on. Has that Belgian vineous character. The Belgian version might be a tab more dry and crisp. This one has plenty of body and a hair less carbonated. Feel the booze. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dark straw, cloudy, moderate frothy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Heavy floral nose, to the point that it is bready.   Warm, alcohol, seems hefty.   Strong bready floralness.   Heavy, much moreso than most.   Typical American example.   Not as floral or spritzy as Belgian examples.   Pretty much what I expected.   A bit heavier than most, but like so many American examples it is more bready than floral.   Decent example, pretty much what I expected.

Thaks to JDskinns for this bottle. Pours out a somewhat clear, slightly hazy golden color with a lively white head: well carbonated. Aroma is of some light spice, bananna, fruit and some yeast notess. Taste is complex some notes of bananna, light clove, slight notes of soem other spice make an appearance, also some sweet fruity notes combined with a yeasty note here and there. Rather well balanced between sweet and dry. Well done.

Still learning to appreciate this style and this one was pretty good. Orange with a light tan head. It had a lot of spice flavor - maybe little much for me. Iím sure Iím rating it less than most and thatís because I donít like the style as much as others do.

750 ml bottle shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Pours a nice orange/amber with an average to large sized white foamy head. Aroma is sweet with notes of candi sugar, tropical fruit, yeast, alcohol, over ripe banana peels and grains. Body is a little thin with average to strong carbonation and despite the addition of suagr this one isnít to sweet and is borderline dry. Flavor of sugar, tropical fruit, yeast, grain and alcohol. Really well done and despite my distaste for drier beers this one is actually balanced nicely between sweet and dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, Batch T7276 (I think this was the first bottled batch, but could be mistaken). Poured crisp medium orange with a short, dense cap of white head. The aroma picked up warm toasted pale malts, honey, and mild sourdough bread.. the latter element quite smoothly rolled into a touch of lemon zest and coriander spicage.. dusty yeast and mild-to-moderate warmth surrounded.. very well done! The flavor found honey (darker grade) and sourdough again at the core with white pepper, coriander, and lemon zest around.. as it warmed up, the alcohol presence intensified and played well with the dusty yeast and spices.. memorable spice array on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with tight, rolling carbonation on the palate.. maybe a touch too sweet overall, but it still felt and tasted great!

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2009 Deep color, creamy smooth head. Good strong aroma. Flavor has a nice mild spice. Very enjoyable. First pour has almost no sediment, but I see a ton of sediment still in the bottle. Second pour, swirling to mix the sediment: most all the sediment "dissolved" and flavor still very nice--maybe even a little smoother. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy glowing orange with plenty of sediment and a thick pillowy white head. Aroma is very floral and spicy with a big presence of pear and apple, lots of esters and pretty straight forward. Flavor starts with an immediately pepper and floral honey character. Quickly mellows and gets a sweet banana yeast and more light fruitiness. Some alcohol becomes apparent towards the finish but stays smooth in the aftertaste. Medium bodied and prickly carbonation. Well done trippel, very quaffable.

Bottle my folks got me at a shop in Dallas, and since there doesnít seem to be any more beer here this is what Iím drinking. Pretty good and surprising since I know Iíve seen it in SD. Pours orange big tan head nose is sweet taste is sweet vinous and quite good, gotta say this is a good tripel better than most domestic ones.
