3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Clear golden shade with average head/lace. Way too much coriander, Belgian spice, red apple and peppermint but it is a tripel. Either way, this is very average at best. Needed less malt and sweetness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Very clear, light golden color. Kind of sweet and perfume-like nose. Excellent lacing on the glass. Flavor is a let down compared to the nose, not a lot of the yeast expression comes through in the flavor. ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like grapes, yeast, fermentation, buttery wood. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet fruit, light yeast and wheat.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Pours clear gold with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, Belgian yeast, faint spice, floral notes, and faint citrus esters. Flavor is bready malts forward with light fruit esters, light floral hop bitterness, and sweetness from the Belgian yeast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Clear orange/amber ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. The aroma is fruity, doughy and a touch grainy with an earthy, woody hop aspect. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is a swirl of sweet tropical fruits and cookie dough with only a sprinkling of earthy hop bitterness. Finishes sweet and fruity, and then bitters up a smidge and dries out. Honestly, this is one of my least favorite styles because no one seems to hop it properly - including many of the Belgians. This one is no exception as it needs more bitterness, especially in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Buddha. Dark brown murky color with a bubbly white head. The aroma has hints of brown sugar and fruit spice. The flavor is just a perfect balance between sweet and fruit. Never been a style that would be my first choice but this was pretty darn good.
