2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, thereís a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but thereís also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, thatís about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Caponeís, Blue Dog, and Craft Ale. Pours turbid "1 hour after taking a Centrum multi-vitamin urine yellow" with 1-finger white head. Nose is a lovely and vibrant medley of coriandery spice, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, lime, orange zest. Tastes citric, limey and orange zesty, with mid-palate coriandery spice, white pepper, funky yeasty malt, and an overall flavor profile like a 33/33/33 mix of witbier, Belgian IPA, and saison, but with more oomph and flair. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, bottled 1/2/13. Hazy dandelion yellow color. Thin white head, decent lace. Orange citrus and floral nose. Awesome big zesty orange peel flavor (bigger than Iím used to from the tripel style), floral notes, light spice with a very enjoyable yeast character - not too belgian, not too little belgian. Just belgian enough. Very smooth, light crisp carbonation, lightly creamy texture, but a good, more dry finish. Zesty sweet taste, little bitterness, bit of umami. This is a fantastic tripel. Unique, tasty, easy to drink.. and $11 for a 6-pack!
