4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Interesting take on a tripel. Very strong saison-like flavor, with the addition of some tropical fruits. If this were labeled a saison I wouldn't have been surprised. Peppery etc. like a saison. Good Belgian yeast notes. Not carbonated highly, as is the American way it seems. Good. B+

Aroma is heavily spicy and malty. The flavor is spices, a hint of white bread, citrus, Belgian yeast, malts and a slightly dry/tangy finish.

Clear golden color with lasting ivory head. Dry hay, dry spice, light pit fruit aromas. Light smooth mouthfeel. Dusty pale malt, straw flavors with light pit fruits, spicy alcohol-drying finish--very tasty Triple

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet candi sugar and Belgian Trappist yeast aroma. Some banana esters, but not too overwhelming. Belgian yeast taste is very tame for a tripel but is balanced.

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.

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.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy dark gold with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (biscuit, meal, cereal), light hops (spicy), and average esters (apple, pear) with notes of alcohol and sugar. Flavor is moderate malt, mild hop bitterness with spicy alcohol and earthy notes. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry finish.

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.

Golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and wheat. The flavor is a bit more complex. I get some orange and wheat, as well as some yeast, grapes and raisins. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice tripel.
