3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer doesn't particularly compare to an abbey tripel as it purports, but it's a good ale that I keep stocked in my fridge as kind of a flavorful session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has some nice hops. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Foamy head. Has citrus and some malt in the aroma. Almost more like a session IPA than a tripel. Finishes a little sour, a little sweet but more light sourness than anything. Average carbonation. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice rich bronze coloured body with a copper glow and a thick dense tan head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed and a bit of apples and pear sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong yeast flavour with bits of wheat, coriander seed and some light hay and grassy hop flavours with some pleasant light sweetness. Aftertaste is nice and light for a tripel, but showing good wheat and yeast flavours with some mild sweetness. Overall, a nice lighter tripel but also with some good complexity - nice to sample, even though this beer is from the Mainland! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska for US$1.80 on 23-May-2013 sampled two days later in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 25-May-2013.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an almost clear medium yellow with a foamy frothy head. Aromas fruity (tangerine, bubblegum), hoppy (grass, hay), with just a touch of caramel behind. Flavors fall short of aromas of light tangerine, grass, and hay. Light bitter aftertaste, slightly watery on palate, lightly sweet. A slightly above the average triple with a slightly distinctive "tangerine" like note.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Golden color. Light yeast and sweet aroma. Hints of bubblegum, light malt, soft peppery spice, and a little sweetness. Not as hearty as a traditional tripel, more like a strong saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Pike Street location. The beer pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, yeast and citrus. Medium body with flavors of citrus, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a yeast and banana aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold with a thin white head. The head doesn’t last long. The nose smells like fermenting peaches and apricots with a hint of prune. The flavor is fruity and sweet with a good bit of apricot. There is a hint of Redman Golden Blend in there too. Medium body with average carbonation. Sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold with a finger of coarse white head. Settles to thin cap quickly with some stringy lacing. Aroma is wheaty, sweet, and soapy. Flavor is mildly bitter, fades into citrus tones with herbal and spicy character and a slight hop bitter. Mild maltiness in finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth, mildly astringent mouthfeel. An interesting, spicy tripel.
