2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden color with slight haze and enormous head at first, but it recedes to a modest layer with ample lacing. Nose isn’t stellar, but has some decent esters and lemony citrus. Alcohol is a little too apparent on the palate, but it is followed by some ripe tropical fruity flavors that go well into the finish. Would be more easy drinking if it wasn’t for the bitchslap of alcohol on the palate.

Bottle. Not a gusher, but some foamy head creeepage when opened. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with a larger sized white head. Aromas of yeast with some fruitiness. Tastes of yeast, fruitiness, bready, and some spices.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
OMG! Just kidding =). This has an unusual color of golden spotting an olive green loincloth. Head rises to the occasion and settles when told to but leaves a pancake on the rug. Smells sweet and very BEER like. Full nectar with ample effers. Pretty basic with fruit turning brown. Long finish with a decent acid cleansing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Poured gold-amber with a huge, moussy head that took forever to go away; oddly enough, it left no lace. Something odd on the nose -- apple? Malic acid? Flavor was good enough, I suppose, but had a metallic bitter undertone to it. Summary; there are better Belgian triples out there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slight haze straw yellow with a thinning head. Aroma is cidery and acetaldehyde, green apple skin yeasty, Belgian phenols cracker malts. Doughy off flavor, apple skin, cider, white wine like with dms- corn and cabbage, light earthy wheat and pear. Finish is a bit thinning.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours blonde with very little head and a caramel aroma. There is a carbonated caramel malt flavor with some banana ester. There is an underlying essence that is distinct to this brewery - probably from the yeast.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours light orange gold with a moderate head. Aroma of burnt caramel. Medium body; frothy carbonation. Flavor is cirtrus, caramel and yeast spice. Finishes mildly sweety and lightly hoppy bitte. A very good drink.
