4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 22oz bottle. I thought it poured a hazy golden brown with a floral, aroma and a thin head. The medium sweetness, hits you first with a warm finish that leaves you wanting more. A nice Belgian Style Ale. Hide the 9% abv very well.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with an impressive rich creamy white foam. Sweetish and rather clean aroma of almondy yeast, coriander and mandarin. Flavor wise, itís better; yeast, nectarines, orange-peels, fresh coriander, leaves, mild white pepper. Long warming and surprisingly dryish and estery finish of coriander, nectarines, orange-peels and peppery alcohol. I didnít knew that GD could brew decent or even good style Belgian ale after the disaster Hades (IMHO). A nice surprise!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma has dough, light cloves, some banana, a bit of abv burn and is very phenolic. Medium / full body with playful sharp carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, but is quite sweet, grainy and very heavy on the banana and phenolic traits. The finish adds even more spice. Okay tripel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy, golden-orange body with a thing, bubbly head. Aroma of crisp pils malt, yeast phenols, especially pepper and light coriander...some underlying orange zest. Fruity, citric esters in the flavor along with light pear and white grape. Light alcohol is present and bready malt. Light, crisp body with effervescent carbonation and light alcohol slickness. Overall well crafted and tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
shared bomber... pours a deep hazy orange with a nice white head... big Belgian yeast notes across the nose along with citrus and banana... medium body with more yeast, citrus and spice... finishes well with typical spices, but feels more yeast focused than most Tripels... overall, very enjoyable and more dynamic than some Tripel styles out there.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I drank this from a 22 oz bomber into a Rochefort chalice.
This tripel pours a a dark golden honey with a medium white head that rises about one finger but is gone quickly leaving only a small rim around the glass. Weak lacing.
The aroma is light mostly flowers with a little hops.
The taste is good nice sweet start, then lots of flowers and hosp to finish. Its nice and complex.
The feel is way to light for me though, too watery.
The drinkability is very high, total session beer, but 9%abv, wow.
Overall, pretty good. Best non tripel Iíve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery. Deliciously sweet nose...bananas foster, closves, vanilla. Syrupy light gold color. Not much carbonation. Taste closely resembles the nose. The cloviness slightly numbs the tongue. Thereís a surprising burst of "bitter alcohol heat" midway through the swallow.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty solid tripel. Draft at South Park Tavern in Dayton, OH. Pours a cloudy golden color with aromas of fruit and yeast. Flavors range from yeast to apricots to citrus. This is certainly not in the realm of the better tripels around, but Great Divideís representation of this great style is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Clear, golden body. Frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of clove, caramel, soap, alcohol. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter with peppery, alcoholic notes and a slight tartness. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, lively carbonation. The elements of a good tripel are here, but it is overly sweet. In addition, the flavors are muddled and the aroma is indistinct.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, dark and hazy, large foamy off-white head, so-so lacing.   Spicy and bready nose, a little floral, some funk and farmhouse.   Seems okay.   Strong breadiness on the tongue, sweet, soft floral nose, a little pale fruit skin.   Not half bad.   Not cloyingly sweet or overly heavy like many American examples.   Fairly full bodied.   A little mealy as it warms.   Some aspect of honeydew melons as well.   Better than I expected.   Still prefer the likes of Allagash to these types tho.
