3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours bright hazy yellow with thin head that diminishes quickly. Smells like crackers and hay. Taste comes off more like a Belgian golden than a trippel. The coriander and orange peel do not dominate and the beer is much less sweet than most trippels. Solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Pours a hazy light yellow/gold color with a scant white head that leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma of honey butter spread on toast, orange marmalade, peeks of coriander, light bubblegum, and even more bread. Little bit of hoppiness too and perhaps a flash of vanilla but that might be a reach. Pretty breakfasty though. The toast spread aspect is really a nice feature. Taste has more prominent bubblegum right up front and thankfully that honey butter on toast feature has carried over into the flavor dept. Some orange peel and coriander shine through on the finish before being replaced by a tandem of drying hops and bready yeast. The orange really begins to emerge as this warms both in aroma and flavor. The abv is expertly masked here, and this drinks more like a 5-6% beer, although the heft of it on the palate is a slight tell. Overall, I don’t normally care much for these Blue-Moonesque type concoctions, but when they’re done this well, I’ll gladly make an exception.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I am totally confused by this beer. It has a Metamucil powder glow to it. Zero head. Lacks the hops and maltiness specified. The booze is not there, well hidden or non-existent. Seems more like a simple Saison, than a Belgian Style Ale. For example, Adelbert’s Triple B seems like a better representation of where this same brew was heading. Major disappointment as their brews are typically on the money.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color is a cloudy yellow color with a large white head, and the aroma is sweet in the nose due to the Belgian yeast and a sweet fruitiness. The taste fuses a slight sourness and a mild sweetness that is enticing, and the palate has an interesting blend of a thick texture, subtle yet long finish, average carbonation, and a medium body, which ties everything together nicely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Apricot and coriander nose. Cloudy golden, thin head. Full body. Lemon and coriander flavor. Fruity esters fade revealing a nice light maltiness. Alcohol well concealed. Dangerously good.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry citrus, nuts, oats, pale malts and a bit of pith. The taste is sweet malts, spice, caramel, honey, building citrus in the finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation, good balance. Solid beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a very hazy, opaque golden orange. Aroma is slightly tart, yeasty, spicy and full of bread. Taste is bold and yeasty / bready. Light citrus and spice notes. Smooth and not especially sweet or bitter on the palate. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw pour with a thin head.
Aroma is orange peel,lemon, coriander, sage, some pilsner-like maltiness.
Flavour is pow, big coriander spice, lemon and orange zest, biscuity malt. A little too aggressively spiced for my liking.
