3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled December 13, 2012.
Appearance: The body is murky pale straw through the edges and orange through the center. The head is thin, but dense, it reminds me of fluffernutter.
Aroma: The aroma is a well balanced medley of oranges, banana, and spice of rye and cloves with light vanilla, a slight hint of alcohol is noted upon swirling.
Taste: The intro is orange packed, with an orange juice vibe to it slightly outshining the malts. The mid-taste adds light banana, spicy rye and pepper notes with a touch of vanilla as orange juice cuts through, but is somewhat balanced while the finish adds mild cloves and lingers of orange juice.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied, full texture, soft carbonation.
Overall: This would be a better beer if they used less orange peel. I feel like they blended orange juice with this, it throws the balance off.

12 oz bottled 5 weeks ago. Pours golden-orange and hazy with a white fluffy head that sticks on the glass. The aroma is yeasty, oranges, spices, herbs, fruit. Light to medium body with a grainy texture and soft carbonation. Zesty fruit flavor balanced well by the two yeast strains and wheat. Very smooth and drinkable with dry finish. A fruity tripel with great balance and flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy yellow with very little head. Coriander on the nose, with cheesy notes, both of which pursue thru to the finish. Some orange exists, but the aroma and body overwhelmingly remind me of refried beans, though in a good way if you can believe it. I honestly donít know how you can classify this as a trippel, with the exception of itís ABV, but Iím enjoying it nonetheless.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy orange with almost no head. Aroma of cheese, sweat socks, a little puke, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is yeasty, a little light fruitiness, and a really metallic finish reminiscent of sucking on a penny. Pretty gross.
