3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 12/31/12. Pours a minimal white head, over a cloudy, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light honey, light citrus (orange), coriander, clove......taste is slightly sweet throughout, light citrus, coriander, clove, hints of honey, finishing with a moderate bitter bite.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol very present and has a neigh on fusel bite, carbonation low. This has many qualities of a Tripel, but also some major misses. First it does not have an appropriate appearance, with a minimal head, cloudy body, and lack of effervescence. Next, while both aromas and flavor are more or less in style, except for incredible sweetness, the mouth feel is way off with the alcohol much too apparent in both harshness and heat. Alcohol in a Tripel is supposed a kind of sneaky, not grossly obvious thing. BJCP 7/2/14/3/7

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a pale golden/straw color with fair white head but not much lacing. Aroma is everything I expected from a classic Belgian White: Orange peel, coriander, wheat, earthy yeast. (nevermind that RB calls it a Tripel). Taste is slightly bitter. Body is medium. Alcohol is very well hidden - I thought it was more like 5.5%. This one is very drinkable and refreshing and one I will definitely try again.
