3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Table and Vine. Orange caramel with flat head. Nice peppery floral aroma with citrus and herbal hints and some creamsicle. Sweet ripe orange bready malts with herbal and citrus bitterness and some pepper in the finish. Medium body that just kind of sits there. Texture is slightly off, not soft, not fine. I wonder if this is old. Anyhow very good. In the top 1% of tripels? No.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden amber topped by a finger of off-white head showing nice retention and some chunky lacing. The nose is herbal, spicy, lemony and earthy all at once. A lot more spice than I’m used to in a tripel. The taste is a combination of light bready malts paired with aromatic herbal and citrusy hops, and earthy yeasts. Feels round and heavy with a strong herbal finish fading slowly. An original take on the Tripel style but it might come out to herbal for some. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly clouded golden-amber with 1cm of off-white head, medium-fine coarseness that fades fairly slowly. Aroma is orange, lemon, some leaf and pine, touch of fruit sweetness and grain. Body is medium-to-meidum-heavy, syrupy/ a bit watery-oily. Moderate carbonation, soft/soapy feel, only light burn. Flavor is leafy bitterness, soapy, a touch medicinal, light raw sugar, touch of candy, bitter finish with moderate linger. An interesting tripel, leaning heavily towards hops, specifically bittering hops, at least in the aroma. I think this is a detractor in the flavor. Also much more heavy body than is typical for the style. Too bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014 bottle. A slightly hazy golden copper color with a very sticky off-white head. Aroma is sweet orange, malt, straw and a touch of lemon. Taste is an immediate commingling of sweet malt and orange with some mango and lemon. Gives way to a nice straw taste with some peppery spice. Well carbonated medium mouthfeel. Strange but good brew, kind of like an IPA meets a tripel.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, corn syrup), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange, apricot), with notes of cotton candy / bubble gum, alcohol, grains of paradise, clove, reeds/grass.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Objectively poor...very candy-ish/artificial sort of aroma, overly boozy, overly syrupy sweet. Hard to enjoy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has tropical / tangerine hoppiness, light banana, rich malt, abbey yeast smoothness and a bit of bread. It has a full slick body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of tangerine hoppiness, other fruity aspects, malt seems quite rich, but the hops hide that aspect pretty well and there is some pine and spice notes. The finish has smooth citrus, alcohol heat and some wintergreen.
