coharahawk (170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2009
On tap at Palm Tavern. Pale yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma is loaded with corn, wheat cloves, and belgian yeast. The smell distinctly reminded me of being at Summerfest the week before and smelling the roasted corn they were selling everywhere. Flavor is extremely corny as well with some sweet and spicy notes asl well. Finishes surprisingly bitter and dry. Not a big fan of this one.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Tap at The Palm Tavern. The beer pours to a very pale golden body with a stick to the glass white head. The aroma is sweet light brown sugar and a lightly spicy (yeasts) maple pecan granola. The flavor is sweet maple pecan granola, herbal/grassy hops, and light brown sugar. Sweet medium body.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Tap at CAH. Pours a lightly hazy golden with some orange notes and a small bubbly white head. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast esters, pepper, green appple and candy sugar. Flavor of the same, getting some peach in flavor along with herbal notes.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Draft at Craft. Pours deep coppery with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is rock sugary malt, hopcitrus, peppery, spicy yeast, spruce. Tastes spicy, yeasty, very sprucey, with hopcitrus and floral notes. Arguably the spruciest beer I have ever quaffed.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. This was a corn bomb to me. Odd since nobody else got that...Perhaps a revisit is in order. Flavor had stronger yeastiness, breadiness, and clove/pepper character to offset the corn than in the nose, but again, the corn was pretty overbearing for me.

LilBeerDoctor (3440) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, corn, breadiness. Flavor of sweet fruits (apple, pear) upfront with a bready/yeasty and spicy finish. Pretty good tripel. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)
