2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly foggy orange bodywith a bubbly thin white head. The aroma has some cereal, sweet dusty pear, pineapple, and hints of caramel. Touches of tart fruit flavour in a creamy yeast body. Quite sweet and there was generally something uneasy about this.
Purchased at Bello Vino in Ann Arbor in April 2006.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, head was a little off-white, almost a fingers worth, the bubbles dissipated but hung around the edges of the glass. This tripple is a cloudy amber with some red, looks like dark raw apple juice, there is sediment around the bottom of the glass. Sweet fragrance with noticeable apples and pears, taste is sweet with a dry finish, small bite from the hops in the finish, medium mouthfeel, mouthfeel was a little less then I prefer,
I can feel the alcohol warmth in my mouth, nose and down my throat with just about every sip, nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light tan color, lots of white head, strong sweet and fruity aroma, slightly creamy sweet flavor. This is a good example of an abbey tripel with lots of overlapping complex tastes.

this beer has a problem with consistency as mentioned zeswaft. Poured a utlra clear honey with a white head. Aroma was candy sugar, spiced apple juice, amd ueast/ Flavor was apple juste, pepper, wood, sugar, and yeast...it also had some "not good" funk going on with it...very unbalanced. Extremely undercarbonated.

Let me start by saying i’m standing next to cmubeerman and sersdf and we all have our own bottle of this. In a class all three look different and taste different. Mine smells like rubber and wood. Flavor is funky, a little candy sugar, a little wood, and rubber, and some bubble gum ester. luckily it will get me drunk. Mine is copper cloudy with little white head. not good.

sweet candyish aroma, not particularly strong but it’s nice. pretty sweet flavor too. little carbonation, pretty opaque (though my friends’ are really clear). a good amount of banana actually, and a little spices. heavy on the belgian yeasty flavor. good tripel. wow, really low on alcohol for the abv. towards the bottom the appearance is actually kinda ugly because of a lot of yeast chunks, so i’m going with 4 for appearance instead
