Tap at Muddy Pig. Dark gold color with a medium head. Very strong hop aroma that is a mix of citrusy American and floral German hops. Lots of honey flavor with a strong yeast and spice smack. A little coriander. The malt is sweet, but so very subtle that itís not overpowering the honey. Everything a Tripel should be.

Dark Golden with a cloudy appearance. The flavor boasts a strong, rich lineup of Bananas, Cloves, Caramel, Barley, Rye, Yeasts, and Floral Hops. The body comes off as a bit too watery for this style of beer, but itís still quite drinkable and mildy crisp thanks to the carbonation. Iíll just close by saying that itís beers like these that have very limited distribution that make me glad I made the move back to Minnesota.

On tap. A clear golden color with a very thin head. A sweet sugar and honey aroma, some hops as well. Flavor was very sweet with a light bitterness at the end. Nice full mouthfeel, alcohol was well hidden. Excellent.

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Draught at the Gnome. Very nice. Surprising hop aroma. Unfortunatly the beer appears filtered, nothing special to say about the appearance. Flavor is a very good combination of hops and sweet. The honey is certainly there. I canít taste the sugar or the malt, but the beer is sweet enough that there must be considerable sugar. Great balance with the hops and honey. Almost more of a saison than tripel.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2007
On tap at the gnome and by far the best beer out Flat Earth yet. Crisp, light nose that didnít reveal much until extensive agitation released an aroma of honey and hops. Clenan gold color with no head. Very nice honey flavor with a hopy finish.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Pours a nice pretty clear honey golden. Nice floral hops and light orange blossom honey sweetness. Nice honey sweetness upfront followed by a suprising, but delicious floral hop bite that carries the finish very nicely.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
On draught at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, Minnesota. Hey! It even came in its own Brandy Snifter with the Flat Earth brewrey logo printed on it. Cool! Pours a clear golden orange brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, multi-grain with wheat, red ripe beets and some vegetable. Taste is full bodied, hardly any carbonation with a thick and syrupy texture. Flavors picked up include sweet honey, some Belgian yeast, bubblegum and plenty of alcohol. Finish is semi-sweet with a dry hop aftertaste followed by bubblegum and plenty of alcohol warmth. By far one of the best brews from Flat Earth.

undsioux7 (793) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Another nonconforming beer from flat earth. golden to amber in color with little head, it has a nice belgian yeast flavor with a nice light mix of the candi sugar, malt and honey. Nice and easy drinking. A lot of time when there is candi sugar, its way to cloying, but not this one.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Growler. Pale yellow pour, plenty of carbonation and a nice sweet and malty aroma. Flavor begins with a little banana, then the malt rolls in with some candi sugar and finished mellow and smooth. I havenít had a good tripel in a while, but this might get me to search out some new good ones to try.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 (bottle) Pours a clear light gold with a very thin white head. Aroma of banana, pale malt, honey butter spread over toast, pears, must, and a subdued floral element. Pretty good, it just needs to warm up a bit before the scents emerge. The flavor possesses plenty of banana, pale malt sweetness, slight butter, allspice, and a lingering stale bread crust finish coupled with a moderate bitterness. Little heat shows up here, but itís not intrusive. I believe this is the only Flat Earth beer Iíve had that wasnít carbonated to high hell, so I must give the palate a 4 for breaking that trend. Overall this is a decent beer, but the high asking price will not prompt a repeat purchase.
