Gorgeous orange, hazy color with a hint of fine white lace-like foam. Orange and malty aromas take up the majority of the fragrance. Champagne like mouthfeel is strong at first but gives way to a delightfully complex flavor. I definitely notice the bleu cheese that zebracakes mentioned, as well as lemons, ginger, and a grassy hops in the finish. Not the finest best abbey tripel, but another well above average beer from the Church.

Bottle. Pretty clear copper with some ruby tints. Aroma is banana and cereal grain. Taste follows suit but adds some apple, clove and spice. Silky mouthfeel but slightly over carbonated. Pretty good.

Thank you Mike with this bomber from Pitt.
Pours golden orange with a thin head that quickly disappears.
Aroma of fruity Belgium.
Highly carbonated of lemony raisins & bananas. Bready malt at the finish
Nothing crazy yet balanced well.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden color with lots of visible carbonation. Medium sized fizzy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of candi sugar, bread, spice, stone fruits, herbal hops. The taste is tart citrus, cherries, stone fruits, bread, spice. Medium bodied, slight heat but fairly drinkable.

Sample from a 2000 bottle during the Armageddon tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 12/20/2012. Cloudy orange pour with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Sparse spots of lacing on the glass. Yeast and fruit in the nose. Full-bodied and somewhat flat with flavors of caramel, yeast and earthy malt. The finish is fruity with a yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle purchased from the brew pub in 2011. Pours light gold with thin white head and minimal lacing. Sweet honey, lemon, very smooth. Hides the 9% well.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a glowing, hazy, pale amber with a moderate head. Quite fizzy. Aroma is fairly faint for the style, giving spice notes over doughy yeast and a touch of citrus. Tastes hoppier than expected, but not overwhelmingly so. Savory and sweet, with mild bitterness. Finishes dry and sharp. A well executed text-book trippel that doesn’t try to be too much.
