GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
750mL bottle courtesy of bdigital, poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange underneath a big creamy white head that stays on as a healthy cap for the entirety of the session. No lacing to be found though the body clears up completely as it warms. The aroma is very sweet with lots of sweet Belgian yeasts and sugar coated light fruits, definitely some apples and pears in there. Some spiciness and a bit of dry earthy character as well. The taste is all over the place and has a big sweet fruit backbone that has not only apples and pears but some bananas as well. There is also a more noticeable spiciness, especially in the finish. The alcohol is also more present than I would like and the finish is an odd mix of super sweet sugars and dry spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and almost syrupy over time with the sugars really coming through on the palate. There is probably a little bit too much non-integrated stuff going on in this one to really impress me - spicy yeast, lemony hops, lots of sugar, light fruits. I think the ingredients are there, and it’s definitely a good beer and I’d go out of my way to try something else from this brewery.

On tap at Yogi’s. Poured a very cloudy yellow with an orange hue and a white head. Aroma was full of sweet fruit notes with undertones of citrus and yeast. Flavor had a similar profile as the flavor with more pronounced citrus notes.

On tap at Brugge Brasserie last weekend. Served in a goblet. Poured a nice golden color with a good white head and plenty of lacing on the way down. The nose carried nice notes of pear and green apple in addition to light pepper and a bit of alcohol. Fruit throughout. The flavor carried too much booze and not enough of the yeast character, though there were still nice notes of ripe pear. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation, though there was far too much of an alcohol character. Pretty good, but too boozy.

Great Taste of the Midwest, 2015. Orange color. Moderate head, not sweet like so many tripels. Alcohol is a prominent flavor here, and it reminds me of Westmalle in that regard. Some light spice; grains of paradise maybe? A little sweet malt in the finish.

bomber into large snifter. Large white head after the pour but then settes, golden yellow and clear. Aroma is lemons, yeast, grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt, very tart, lost of yeast, bitter in finish. A little too heavy on the yeast for my liking.

DrSilverworm (8707) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2014
6oz on tap at Twenty Tap. Clear kind of darker orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Some dots and bits of lace. Bigger body, kind of slick, definitely thicker. Lighter carbonation. Caramel, belgian candy sugar, some dried fruit. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy light bitterness, light alcohol warmth. Decent amber-tripel. Fun to try.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 Lasting white ring covers a clear golden body. Yeast heavy aroma shows strong estery character, bringing obvious banana and pear notes. Fresh honeyed cereals proliferate on the palate while hay-like flavours never manage to dry the beer out. Instead, a weighty herbal character grows with every sip, in a intoxicating way combined with the high ethanol component. A very heady triple, perhaps a bit too hot for its own good. /////////// Now from the 750 mL bottle. Very very yeasty, but well-hopped, flowery and lemony tripel with strong banana esters and a gentle sourdough tartness. Authentic Belgian texture. Score would drop to 3.0

Block (1756) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Amber pour with a white head. Aroma of pale bread, hops and fruit. Taste is light with a small alcohol bite. Masks the 11% alcohol well without getting too dark with the malts.
