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.

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 canít 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale orange with a nice white head. Itís very active and produces nice lace. Aromatic wheat malts, spices, and sweetness in the aroma. Definate corriander. It is quite active on the palate and produces a tangy wheat flavor that has some vineous fruityness and finishes with sweetness and a noticable alcohol. I like this beer.
