3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Faded, yellow/gold coloring. No head. Tangy, battery acid flavoring lingers far past initial taste. Spicy. Coriander readily apparent and overwhelms the floral and fruity undertones. Love it or hate it delivery. I hate it. Sampled @ BCTC 2007

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BCTC 2007. Decent tripel but not as good as Saison du CBC or L’Amour du Jour. Not a bad beer but I expect more out of a tripel. Sweet, slightly perfumy, flowery. Decent

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak for a tripel. I live near the Cambridge Brewing Company and was largely unimpressed with the beers that I sampled. This was one of two acceptable beers. Nose was flowery with hints of spices. Sweet/candy-like taste, which may have been a bit overdone. Finish was flowery with yeasty presence.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF 2006. Blushing amber. Nose is spices, yeast, flowers, some sweet malts, and fruits. Taste is pretty much typical triple - more sweet malts, candyish fruits, yeast, spices,and floral notes. Body is meidum with above average carbonation. Ends with more flowers, lighter yeast and spiciness, sweet malts, and ripe fruits.

Draught @ CBC 5/5/06. Pours a dark cloudy orange color with a white foamy head. Nose is yeasty, hints of lemon, some biscuits and spiciness. Taste is yeasty, has a sweetness of honey to it, lightly sticky and malty. Palate is kinda chalky and dry.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 An average beer. It tastes like a tripel in essence only, but has no distinctinon. very quaffable, but not noteworthy in any way. Tried on tap on location. Not worth seeking out. Beer to get drunk on and no more.
