3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly clear bright golden body, medium tall sudsy creamy white head. aroma is fresh grapefruit rind, hoppy for a tripel. also a lkittle sweaty/pissy/yeasty. maybe a little dried tropical fruit in the aroma too. flavor starts caramel malty sweet, a little spicy like white pepper, dried pineapple chunks and grapefruit sections with rind. some earthy yeast and then very dry/astringent hop bitterness. a little boozy/herbal/ginny in the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 ounce bottle. Absolutely beautiful pour. Light gold translucent with a tinge of white head. Heavy nose with above-mentioned ingredients. Citrus sweet, hides the alcohol well, but you feel the warmth. Not a tripel in a literal sense, but a delicious beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent representation of the Belgian style. Soft carbonation, esters, little hoppier than typical tripel, sweet, but definitely not cloying, some over-ripe banana tones. A bit of a zing in the mouth feel at the finish. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I thought I would hate it, based on the smell. However, it was sweet, not too barky, refreshing, and super-powerful. Julie got it on draft, and we liked it so much I may get a case.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured golden, clear with a nice white foamy head. Aroma of fruit (mostly banana), floral notes, some malts and some yeast. Taste is also fruity and sweet, a bit boozy, you can also taste some spicy notes and some yeast. Certainly very Belgian like, well executed and quite enjoyable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, dank hops, tropical fruits, candied belgian yeast, ripe sour fruits, and some musty grapes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with the addtion of some very light booze. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, semi dry, slightly warming, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty trippel that is pretty hoppy for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle -
Aroma - perfumey hop character, spicy, light alcohol present with a slight tropical fruit angle
Appearance - pale golden color, hazy, small dissipating white head, little to no retention.
Mouthfeel - medium bodied, light carbonation...almost wish for a spritzier beverage
Flavor - pine needles and caramel up front. Old juicy oranges, spices, some staw notes too. Surprisingly sweet thought the alcohol helps zap the malts somewhat. Tasty.
Overall - Complex and tasty, a nice example of an above average tripel. Very flavorful and a single bottle won’t break the bank.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very well done, with well balanced coriander and florals. This is much better than some of their stuff I had a couple years ago - good to see them coming along. Golden hazy pour, thickish consistency. Light sweet finish. Very drinkable. Bottle from Chevy Chase.

Draft at White Oak Tavern, served in a goblet. Hazy yellow gold with fading white head and lacing. Nice combo of city's and floral hops with malt sweetness and spicy Belgian yeast. Well done.
