4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, this overall rating on the beer is insanely low. Pours hazy / cloudy amber with a dense white head that leaves very nice lacing. The aroma has banana, earthy yeast and smooth sweet malt - more true to style than most US versions. Medium / full body that is creamy and smooth with very soft carbonation. The taste starts with lots of yeast, heavy typical Belgium tripel malt and candi sugar. The finish has some sharpness and sourness as wells as a good amount of spices. This is a great American version of a tripel that could easily compete against the true Belgium counterparts. Thumbs up for this well crafted beer.

opaque orange, frothy beige head, heavy lace,
light fruity spicy aroma with hints of citrus,
balanced malt flavor with a sweet fruityness that’s well balanced with the spicy citrus character, the sweetness picks up a candy quality as it warms and becomes a spiced candy

Palate was light bodied crisp but slightly syrupy. Flavors of pineapple, vanilla, light carmel and spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque, hazy gold with a tighly packed layer of tight bubbles on top. A sweet and spicy nose of lovely citrus and yeast. Lemon, cloves, fresh dough, wheat, vanilla, corriander and light banana. The body is thick and full, due to what appears to be loads of suspended yeast. The carbonation is nice, but can’t quite cut the weight. The flavor is pretty nice. Sweet, some fairly pronounced, but not overpowering, spice and a bit alcohol. The finish is long and warm, but definitely satisfying. Not my favorite from Brugge, but a treat to try and something I would drink again.
