SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
Draft @ Naked City; muddy orange with trace white head; stale malt aromas with lemons and a slight sourness; drinks with light fruity flavors and obvious tartness and zing on the lips; crisp malts and stale lemons; thin, flat almost syrupy texture; was pretty excited to see this on the board, but a very odd beer overall

bvc (1159) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Draft at Naked City. Hazed toffee brown with small ring for a head. Tart caramel apple, some light spice, slightly tart green bananas as well, lactic. Kind of thin and watery in feel with light carbonation. Really tart and appley, caramel, pecan. As it warms I get this weired lively carbonation on the the end that is like bakin soda. Not sure what happened here, but my glass seems to differ from others ratings and super tart/sour.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Big barrely tart apple nose. Wood is there quite a bit. Not tripel like at all but more or less a sour ale. Murky brown orange no head. Tart barrely woody. Light bourbon barrel shines through. Very woody and tart. Some belgian notes peak through extremely lightly, but this is No tripel at all imo. Lingering tart/sour. Well it tastes good but is not to stlye at all. It is what it is.

On Tap @ Hamilton’s. Pours a bit deeper in color than your average Tripel, a very deep yellow color with almost no head. Aromas of cooked banana, light citrus and some Belgian yeast. Flavor was much of the same with a crisp finish, brew is medium in body.
