3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars, cellar aged 8 months and served at cellar temperature. Pours an unclear golden orange with a beige head leaving very little lace. Aroma has sweet malts, tangy belgian yeast, and some fruits. Taste is of sweet caramel, spices, a bit of pine, some oranges, and tangy belgian yeast. Medium bodied with some alcohol. Finishes sweetly tangy with some length. Not the brew to begin an evening with. 13.2

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 6/4/15. (Food Pantry) Honolulu, HI.
My rating #9,000.
Hazy yellow color with a small white head.
Nice fruity hops, orange, yeast, wheat and malt in a fresh aroma.
The flavor is dry hops, yeast, wheat, mild bitterness, alcohol and some spices. Balanced and tasty. And the label seems to be me and my wife on our honeymoon walking at the Waikīkī Beach...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1181 - 15.07.2014 Bottle from CBI. Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Gorgeous, tropical aroma billows out - pineapple, mango, passionfruit. Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped, assertive bitterness. Phenomenal blend of the tripel and IPA styles.

Yeast, pine, citrus. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a big foamy thick white head that lasts a good while. Super fruity. Thick soft mouthfeel. Nice bitter edge on an otherwise very smooth beer. Nice booziness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours a hazy brownish straw and has a thick creamy cap floating on top. Fist impression is a big MEH! Some big hops in the nose with lemon and vinnilla. Beer is starting to grow on me. Taste is the same maybe a soapy finish. Hopity hop hop aru. Lemon and banana / wheat really show in the finish. Beer is growing on me........ ya I can drink this........... a lot. Perfumey and bitter all at once.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I must not have a great. A good bottle based on the other reviews. The beer in my glass seems oxidized. It has a caramel sweet, hoppy honey marmalade aroma. It smells sweet. The flavor follows the same lines of the aroma with a more pronounced hop bitterness. One reviewer mentioned soapy for the mouthfeel and I think it has similarities. The beer is somewhat overcarbonated. Which leaves a slight hop bite on the tongue. The alcohol doesn’t seem to show it self at first but by the 3rd sip, trust me it’s there. Personally to many contradictions for this "style". It may play out great in the winter months. I would buy again but would certainly try it again if offered.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of tangerines and oranges. The taste is as expected from a Belgian style beer, a sweetness together with the hoppy taste and a dry bitter finish. I caught some alcohol notes as well, even if it is well hidden. The mouthfeel is rather sharp and slightly soapy. Bold in it’s style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 Restrained spicy, grassy, floral, citrus aroma in an hazy amber pour. Wonderfully complex flavours makes this a benchmark of the American take on the style. Makes up in taste what it might lack in subtlety compared to the best of the Belgian brews.
