Bottle from Julio’s. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. Poured into a tulip. Swirled in the bottom. A deep amber-orange color - darker than most tripels. Frothy white head that settles to a thick lace. Bright aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and spice. Flavor is very nice with a combination of yeasty fruit, citrus with a little spice balance. Clean finish.

islay (1525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2014
25.4 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-21-14. Tart and quite pleasant aroma features scents of apple, honey, green grape, and apricot pastry. Pours a hazy, orange-ish gold with a moderate amount of beige head. Highly effervescent liquid. Looks good. The final of multiple pours is cloudy and opaque with good-looking, cream/beige head. Boozy, hot, creamy taste features flavors of prune and burnt caramel. Also apricot, lemon, and watermelon. Tastes like an unfortunate North American imitation of a Belgian ale, a la Unibroue. Unsophisticated. Coffee astringency in the finish. Simultaneously slightly unpleasant and bland. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Initially lively but quickly fades on the tongue. It has that insubstantial quality of poor Belgian imitations. Overall, quite disappointing.

crossovert (9503) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
750ml bottle. YEar aged at the brewery. This style I wouldn’t age, it is pretty flatline, muddled malt and spice notes, still violently carbed.

Scopey (9372) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Yespr’s. It pours faintly hazy golden-amber with a medium white head. The nose is pear drops, apple, melon, light tartness, doughy, vinous notes and candy. The taste is crisp, doughy, pear, apple, melon, nectarine, alcohol, caramel, light spice and sherbet. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Pretty well balanced stuff. A good tripel by any measure.

superspak (3489) - Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
750 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big peach, pear, apricot, apple, light banana, honey, candi sugar, bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright fruity/spicy yeast ester and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big peach, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, honey, candi sugar, bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, pear, apricot, apple, honey, candi sugar, bread, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester and malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice tripel style. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
