COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by Candi’s golden appearance. This Belgian Tripel may taste of sugar and spice, but her beguiling introduction is far from nice, flirting with a covert 9.5% ABV. Saaz and Halltertau hops provide a clean, floral aroma with minimal hop bitterness and the soft sweetness of apricot and pear lingers nicely against a dry finish.

MadRobin (1940) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 3, 2014
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Hazy, straw color with no apparent head or lacing. Aroma of cloves, coriander, apricot, apple, caramel, banana and sweet cherries. Taste of cloves, spices, apricots, banana, caramel and orange. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. Sweeter and spicier than a typical tripel, but still an interesting and tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
bottle. hazy pale golden with small head. this is otherwise a fairly solid tripel, but it’s way oversweet and a bit too boozy. nice yeasty nature and light hops. back the sweetness down considerably, and this would be quite excellent.

katrinaez (55) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
The way a tripel should taste if meant to be sweet. Had sweet aroma. Deep orange yellow color. Carmel flavor some bitter but more sugar. Malt is subtle

Hmm, the first 3/4 of this beer experience is fine & dandy but what is that in the finish? The aroma is nice with some Belgian spices standing out. The pour is transparent gold w/ a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. The taste is lightly spiced upfront but finishes w/ a sudden harshness. It’s not hops & it’s not good! Completely brings this beer down! Disappointing to say the least!

Deep amber color with a short head that fades fast. Strong malty aroma with cherry in the background. Taste is sweet malt with a slick finish. Leaves a malty aftertaste. Not bad overall. Certainly enjoyable!

I like the big boobs but the flavor is just not even close to a tripel. Way too sweet and too much belgian candy used. Im sure that was the intent but poor execution.
