3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body under a small fizzy white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is thick and heavy pale malts with a slight perfume like note and some light yeast fruitiness. The flavor is a bit heavy on the palate, overly sweet for my tastes in the style, and lacking in complexity. The malt is so heavy and sweet that the yeast really doesn’t get a chance to shine which is what I want to see in a Tripel. Mouthfeel is thick and clingy with fizzy carbonation. No softness to it at all, it just kinda sits heavy on the tongue. Not terrible, but not what I look for in the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Oliver’s Beverage Center, Albany, NY. Typical cloudy gold with a thin ring of white head without much retention. Nose is dried fruit, candy sugar and Belgian yeast. Fruit notes. Taste is similar to the nose, dried peaches, banana notes. Apricot hints.
Body is grainy with a moderate malt profile. Sugary sweetness and covers any alcohol flavor. Dry texture. Overall good example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle [12oz] . Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Odd aroma of tomato paste, herbs, yeast, pear and white pepper -- or something like that. Flavour is only slightly more straightforward, with yeast, herbs, a bit of tomato paste, white pepper and wheat. Medium bodied. An odd one indeed, not for me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
At a tasting, thanks Yoav, a touch hazy light orange colour, aroma of popcorn, peanuts and hay, sweet candy jammy flavour and a coarse bitterness, much too sweet and unbalanced. One dimensional and uninteresting.

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.
