3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Brew Kettle (2009 version). The beer is a clear orange color with a very thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas and citrus plus some malt. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and bananas along with some hoppy and spiced notes. The finish is grainy malt with a sweet fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Iíve got to believe this is what Iíve had as it said Belgian Golden but this is the only thing close to what I think it was. Very malty first and foremost. The aroma also has a touch of pepper. The flavor follows suit with plenty of sweet malt, candy, marshmallow, and a bit of pepper. I donít usually like this kind of thing but this time it works well. Not to style in any way but very enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber: Deep gold w/ some haziness and a short lived white head. Some very light banana esters and peppery yeast w/ hints of over ripe green grapes in the aroma. Some grainy malt and the coriander is very, very, light. Orange peel is non existant in the aroma. Light alcohol scent. The flavor, for a tripel, is a bit on the bland side. The grainy malt flavor is the most predominant, and light at the start, but there is an herbal hop flavor and bitterness, along with some dry bitterness and flavor from the citrus peel in finish and aftertaste. Between the start and finish is sort of a muddle of spices an of nothing really. Low carbonation for a tripel IMHO, light alcohol presence, but not overwhelming, lighter medium body, and a bit dry. Drinkable but not outstanding
