4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden body with a generous white head. Opens up with aromas of melon, lime, grass and farmyard. A carbonated mouthfeel with an initial bitterness that is followed by flavors of grass and citrus backed up by a slight toast character. Finishes off with a lingering hop bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Blue Monkey. Aroma is light grass, a little banana, citrus, and fresh rolls. Pours golden with a nice fluffy head and a wispy film after. Taste is great citrus, grass, slight wheat, banana, pineapple, and a nice bready finish. Drank two in a row and only then discovered the 10%. Delicious triple.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On-tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden hue with a short white head, poor retention. It settles in a slightly bubbly edge.
Aroma: Some sulfur, some booze, some lemon and orange, and hints of Belgian yeast.
Taste: Mildly sweet malty intro that builds, slight yeasty spice by the mid-taste with a hint of oranges. The finish shows some booze. Not my favorite triple.
Palate: Full-bodied and moderately carbonated.
Overall: Thereís something about the yeast profile that throws me off. I donít dislike it, but Iíd take other tripels over it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). Pours a hazy straw color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet grain, and a hint of plastic. Taste of sweet grain, grass, bitter grapefruit, and a hint of plastic in the aftertaste. Really tasty minus the plastic notes.

Poured from bottle. Aroma is grassy and fruity. Taste is almost like smoking weed. Distinct. Fruity at end. A bit bitter but easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
EXPLOSIVE!!!! Cracked the crown on this and nearly half the bottle came flooding out all over the counter. Brutally either overcarbonated or infected. Anyway, after about five minutes of letting this one air out, I poured a half glass - lovely golden with a fine white foam atop. Slightly herbal hops, some nice sourish tones (nearly tart apple with hint of lime). Tastes like a tripel with refined tones of yeast and a really pleasant lees creaminess. medium bodied with lighter carb now. Nice beer. Wish it wasnít a brutal gusher.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep gold - vigorous head (aged bottle pour). Aroma is sweet and sour, yeasty, bready, light fruits - interesting, but good as I got into it. Flavor is vinous, white-wine like, light tropical fruit, yeast, esters, somewhat sour. Palate is effervescent and lively. Took me a bit to warm up to this one, but I would say it was a good pour overall!

Held this bottle for awhile and then shared with deadCATAtlanta while cleaning my new (to me) beer fridge. Pours a lovely hazy gold with ample white head. Scent is delicious mix of spice and sugar. Flavors are sweet and earthy. Body is medium and lively. Good beer. Glad I had the opportunity to try. Bottle - Somewhere in NYC

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.75l bottle from Cracked Kettle. This was actually one of the first beers I bought from Cracked Kettle, so have been saving this for a while. It pours a lovely looking glowing cloudy honey-golden body with a big heavy lacing off-white head. Smells a little bit of cellar and Belgian yeast. Itís also somewhat zesty on the nose, and there are clear notes of oxidation. It has a average carbonation level and a kinda gliding and oily mouthfeel. In the taste I get lots of really ripe fruits, some yeasty tones, canned pears and light candy sugar. The twist here is that has a slight acidity in between the other flavors. Almost like sour raspberries mixed with blue plums in a way. Makes it more interesting, but I have to admit that itís not a masterpiece of a tripel this, but that being said, it kinda grows on you after a while in the glass. Some subtle traces of alcohol, and I have to say subtle because the fact that itís a 10 percent to ABV beer is hard to notice. Itís leaving the mouth in a state that I would describe as drying and longing for more - and thatís undoubtedly a good thing! 10.04.2013
