3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This starts with an aroma that doesn’t quite match the style. There’s some of the Belgian spice, with a stronger sweet aroma. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with almost no head. I’m not sure if I would say the flavor is traditional... there’s a bitterness in the finish that stands out. The spice is there to start with, but quickly fades. It’s interesting, not sure if I’m planning on getting it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a hazy golden amber. Little yeast cake left chunked in the bottle. Not the huge first bite I expect from a Tripel. Pretty mellow with a sweet clear orange that stands out. Not near what I expected, however a decent drinking Tripel. Restated, probably won’t seek out out as a first choice when looking for a Tripel, but certainly wouldn’t turn down a fresh pint.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a honey amber color with a small head. Aroma of fruits like banana, cloves and some alcohol. Taste is more fruits, some bitterness and more alcohol. Average beer that needs something else.

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.
