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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50cl: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is mildly spicy, somewhat yeasty, and fruity. Taste is much in the same category. There is not so much a traditional tripel taste as it that of a Belgian blonde. Not to say that this is a bad thing. Mild hoppiness. Not particularly interesting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I bought this because it was on sale at $3.99 for a 550ml bottle. The pour was nothing amazing. gold color with a small short lasting head. Aroma was faint. Had to stick my nose in the glass to get anything at all which was mild candied fruit and a bit of floral scent. The taste and mouth feel are NOT creamy but rather dry especially in the finish at both 45 degrees and a bit over 60 tho it did get less dry as it warmed. Overall a second rate Tripel at best.
