3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle brought back from MI. odd little thing. sort of tea-colored, dark for a triple, with some lacing following a thin tan head. lots of unexpected aromas here -- wet earth, leather, and, yes, asparagus being preeminent among them. interesting yeasty phenolics on the palate, and a smokiness I’d liken to lapsang souchong -- definitely a tea-like character. not bad, but not your standard triple by any means.

On tap at BST. Cloudy gold pour with a white head. Belgian yeast, candy, banana and spice in the aroma and taste. Very nice true to form tripel with the complexity you would expect from the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours almost clear bright golden with a nice white head, some retention and lacing - pretty weak some might say for a tripel. very fruity and spicy belgian yeast esters, some phenols - lots of bananas in fact, very clovey and minty - some coriander and other aromatic herbs too, honey and riesling sweetness, boozy grape juice, woodsiness - hint of vanilla. average carbonation - could be brighter, light to medium body - oily, very boozy and assertive if not aggressive grassy-spicy-piney finish. american tripel - intriguingly uncommon.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. There is an extremely spicy note to this tripel. Clove and banana dominate here, with a yeastiness that comes right through. Has a dustiness to the mouthfeel. Good but muddled in a sense.
