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.

Bottle. Medium golden in color - cloudy. Malty, slightly spicy aroma. Sweet and spicy flavor with some bitter aftertaste. Does not taste as strong as it is.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured golden, clear with a nice and foamy white head. Aroma of fruit, spices and grain. Taste sweet (maybe a bit too sweet), fruity, some spices. Decent beer, drinkable.

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!

gsmitty80 (1794) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2014
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.

An overly sweet offering, way too much candy sugar. Some banana and cloves, but mostly sugar.

Gooseunc (15) - Prince William County, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12oz bottle...pours w/slight head, mildly hazy, orange-ish colour. Lots of fruit on nose...apricot? Goes down smoothly...lots of fruit/residual sugars/sweetness on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Golden with small white head. Aroma of candy sweetness, grain, and some fruit esters. Medium body with syrupy sweetness upfront some yeast notes. Not as complex and some of the better Trippels.
