3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from Binny’s Plainfield, #5458/6500. Pours a hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is florals fruits and orange peel with some hints of banana. A bit of a clove phenol with a light yeasty pepper, a light grass, a touch of candi sugar, and a somewhat grainy and bready pale malt backing. Flavor is similar. Floral fruits with some banana and pear as well as a light orange peel. Grainy, bready, lightly sweetened pale malts balance a light grass and pleasant yeasty pepper spice really well. A bit of a clove note, touches of candi sugar, and a light grass at the end as this finishes dry and spicy with just a touch of alcohol. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, lively, medium-high carbonation. Overall, I am generally not a tripel fan, but this one was done really well. Dry and spicy with a nice fruity essence while never getting too sweet or boozy. Really nice beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a bright golden with a white head. Aroma is some fruityness with lots of candi sugar. Flavor is again with some fruit. Finish is grassy hops and kinda bitter. Just an ok triple. Maybe using another yeast strain would have done better things for me. Nothing really came out for me with the one and it is super dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep copper coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, coriander seed, curacao, hay, grass and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Strong yeast flavour at first then showing some wheat, alcohol, earth, caramel and a hint of the coriander seed and a tiny amount of citrus. Aftertaste is a bit complex with the yeast and alcohol coming through mostly and a hint of sweetness and a twinge of spices near the end. Overall, excited to try this, but it didn’t deliver in the way I’d expect - a fairly one dimensional tripel with some decent flavours but nothing overwhelming. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 01-May-2012 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 29-November-2012.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy orange/gold with a foamy/creamy near-white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Near full bodied. There’s light banana ester and the typical Belgian yeast/spice. Lightly sweet with some off-setting bitterness. There’s no doubt this is a tripel. Goes towards medium dark pitted fruit in the finish.
