3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle shared at The Royale on the Tuesday night tripel tasting; I think the guy got it from Wine and Cheese Place, though. Pours a cloudy dark gold color with a frothy eggshell white head. Notes of floral hops, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, honey, alcohol, and sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with a lot of frothy carbonation and a yeasty mouthfeel with a little acidic bite. In a night of tasting many tripels, this one kind of got lost in the shuffle. It isn’t bad but didn’t stand out in any way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium to dark yellow, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of honey, gum, wet cement, alcohol/solvent.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Well, it’s better than the Blond, at least by a little bit. Still phenolic in an unpleasant, solvent-like way, but not as strong here...plus some sweet honey/gum notes help. Not quite as husky. Not bad, but kinda plain.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from azwine 5/29/10.
hazy yellow gold with a soft white head.
it smells rather bland yet sweet... earthy yeasty stink, pale malt, dust, sweet grain and stale spice.
it tastes the same... too sweet. add in calcium and a lack of depth to get the flavor profile from the aroma.
sharp mouth feel yet sticky. 5/4/5/3/12/2.9
