3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy and tan with a touch of orange. Minimal head and medium high carbonation. The aroma is spicy and ladden with alcohol, sweet yeast and roasted honey. Golden flavors touched by the sun. Apple, summer, morning dew and the consciousness of youth. Palate is rich and satisfying. Overall, very good, quite complex and certainly flavorful. Not really an attractive looking beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold with a big merangue head. Mellon aroma. Fizzy, sweet, slightly yeasty and a hint of chalk. Alcohol is well hidden. Delicate and nice but not my favorite.

Pours a two-finger white head that vanishes without a trace lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nose is distinctly raisins, starts sweet and finishes sweet and sour but mellow. No hint of alcohol!! Another excellent triple. 330ml bottle for $3.49 from Hoosick St. Discount Bev, Troy, NY.

One of the best Tripels I’ve had. Nicely malty, but still on the dry side for style. Fairly long lasting head and lovely effervescense. Reminds me a bit of Karmiliet, maybe a bit maltier.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle; Dark yellow with white puffy head. Just the perfect amount of yeast sediment pours on top of the foam. Great! Nose is mostly alcohol with some faint sweetness. Flavour is very smooth with perfect of bitterness to balance, some acidouness from the yeast. High but smooth carbonation. A very nice triple.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick and creamy head. No lacing, but the head does stick around for quite some time. Aroma is slightly sweet with some coriander and oragne. Taste is a nice blend of fruit and spiciness. Some banana and bready notes come through as well some cinnanmon and orange peel. Overall, it’s really pretty good. Maybe just a hint of alcohol on the back end, but far from distracting. A good tripel.
