3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Lots of fruit, banana, candi sugar, peppery, spicy hops, bread, and somewhat dusty. A little boozy. I just don’t like this style very much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a hint of orange and a big white head.
S: As usual for tripels, there is lots of sweet malt with plenty of fruit. Big time banana and pear with just a hint of sweet apples. There are lots of spice notes, too: clove, coriander, and mild pepper.
T: The flavor is very similar with an emphasis on sweet malt/bread and toffee. There is, however, noticeable booze which is the main problem with this beer. Nice spices of coriander and clove along with the same banana and pear fruit notes.
M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Overall a pretty nice beer. The booze is really the only knock on it, but pretty solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden orange body and a white head that fades. Aromas are strong of orange peel, orange blossom honey, rye, and spicy clove. Flavors are quite dry, grainy, a bit of booze. Some candi sugar. Lively and dry. A tasty triple.
