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.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruity, sweet, mead-like honey aroma. Clear golden tawny coloured body with low white head that diminishes to ring. Very sweet and honey-like flavour seems to have plenty of unfermented sugars. Yeast is very apparent along with a strong fruitiness. Flavours didnít blend well for me. Medium body and somewhat watery in texture though also sticky and syrupy. A bit lifeless in the mouth. On tap at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.
