3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 shared by YobDoog at the CL Golden Delicious release. Hazy golden in color with some orange tinges and a medium sized off white head. Aroma: Some citrus esters, spicy pepper, candi sugar, and light touches of bubblegum. Taste is citrus esters, light bubblegum, pepper, honey, and candi sugar. Body is on the heavier side for a tripel, but it has a nice, creamy, well rounded body than doesn’t hinder drinkability. This was my first Boulevard beer, and it was pretty solid. Looking forward to trying more. Thanks for sharing Trevor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy boboski. Pours medium golden-orange with a medium, frothy white head. The foam settles to a small, wispy film, leaving scant traces of lacing behind. The aroma shows creamy citrus chiffon, orange, lemon, candy sugar, and some bready yeast. A good dose of floral hops are detectable, adding good balance to the nose. The flavor follows suit, with dried citrus fruity notes, light caramel, and good hop character. The mouthfeel is slightly more full than medium bodied, though much of that comes from the sugar content. Finishes on the sweeter side of things. Pretty solid, unique Tripel.

750ml bottle from mreusch; Nose of sweet candisugar, yeast, light fruity esters, cloves, and nutmeg; clear copper-orange with a big yellowish head; flavor is cloves, light sweet caramelized sugar, alcohol, and a little pepperiness; finish a little alcohol warmth. A little too sweet, but not that bad!

Sharing with Grant and Lori. Poured into an improper, yet super cool, glass. We can’t decide if one should actually put a candle in here instead of beer. ? Full flavor, rich and thick. Good example of the style. We dig.

Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Very grassy on the nose. Sweet grassy flavor with a bit of pepper and orange. Pretty well rounded flavor. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of Gregis. Thanks, Greg! Pours a slightly hazy, yellow-orange color; bright white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Pleasant yeast and esters in the aroma; fruity. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: very chewy, sugary ester character; a bit underattenuated and sweet; more of a sticky Belgian than a traditional tripel. Lengthy, Belgian sugar and doughiness in the finish.
