3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold color with a smallish light-tan head. Plenty of bananas in the aroma along with some lemons, cloves, allspice, oranges and rinds, grapefruits, caramel, and vanilla. Goes down medium to full-bodied and a tad sticky/syrupy. Very sweet candied sugar, caramel, and some bananas upfront taste-wise. Some mild and smoothing vanilla follows. Slightly bitter and drying at the end with some grapefruitiness. Warming alcohol is present throughout, though nowhere near the amount expected from a 9.5% ABV. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle from brewery into tulip) I was really looking forward to this one, since I often take the namesake exit to work with 295 N is clogged! Pours a dark amber with a very light head that didnít last too long. Nose is very heavy on the hoppy florals as well as the hints of cirtus, cloves, and sweetness one would expect from a tripel. Nice mouthfeel with a lively carbonation that brings the flavors together well. Starts off with a blast of sweetness, but has a nice sharp bitter finish with the hops that is a bit of a surprise. took me a while to get used to that, but found that the hops at the end do provide an interesting twist on the style which is not entirely bad. I have several bottles and am making sure to but one aside to age for a long while to see how well the flavors develop.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Small off-white head atop lightly hazed light amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, some clove, straw, strawberry, light cotton candy. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple, orange, alcohol/warming, straw, light peach. Medium-full body, some stickiness, light acidity. This has to be the hoppiest "Tripel" Iíve ever tried. Decent, but itís a bit boozy, and tastewise, Iíd sooner call this an ASA than a Tripel.
