3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a pale, dull yellow color with a big white head. Aroma of coriander, orange peel, banana, candi sugar, sweet malts, bubblegum, and clove. Flavor is pretty similar- banana, bubblegum, sweet malts, sugar, corn syrup, orange peel, clove, coriander, and bread. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a chewy, bready mouthfeel. Nice mix of a Belgian tripel and a witbier, and hits all the familiar notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a trade with drfabulous. Pours clear light amber color with thin white head. Aromas of corriander and orange peel. Sweet fruity flavor, doughy yeast and some spices. Some corriander also. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite an interesting brew. Smells like a witbier but tastes like a Belgian tripel. Thanks Jeff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. Aroma was orange, citrus, banana, and other spices. Full body, with some carbonation bubbles. Flavor was spices, sour fruits, and some alcohol. Aftertaste was long and had a more alcohol burn. All in all a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
13-Feb-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 22-Dec-09 for $4.69 at www.wineandcheeseplace.com) This Tripel Wit certainly drinks closer to a Belgian tripel than a wit; itís essentially a tripel with coriander and orange peel. It delivers a full, rich body and plenty of sweetness for a fairly viscous mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Sweet flavors of bubblegum and very ripe banana mingle with contrasting addition of prominent coriander and mildly bitter orange peel. The nose projects significant coriander, sweet stone fruitiness, ripe banana, clove, caramel, and bready malt. Hazy golden-orange in color, but the off-white head pours very small and dissipates rapidly, so lacing is impossible. This isnít a beer you can drink a lot of, but itís very tasty and nicely balanced for a hybrid of two styles. My favorite of the five bottled products Iíve tried from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by Paskie. Hazy warm orange pour, fine white head. Fresh coconut nose, delicate coriander, roses. Flavor is big time orange juice, sweet and a bit thick, but so cheerful you donít really mind. Nice toasty white bread finish. Not one Iíd like by the pint, but would happily pair a small glass of this with a Saturday morningís eggs and bacon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 From a 22-oz bottle courtesy of Strykzone, this poured a brownish orange, cloudy, and with a fat white head and good lacing rings. Nose is strongly fruity with and aroma of peaches. The body is medium, and the mouthfeel lively, probably from the alcohol. The flavor is fruity as well with spices showing, was there is a perfume quality with a long lingering sweet finish. Lots to like here. Again thanks Strykzone for a great beer.
