From bottle into glass, ABV well hidden in this light and airy trip. Looking forward to opening Le Freak next.

In the glass the beer is a hazy orange color with a nice head. The aroma has some sweetness and sugar that come through. There is also some maltiness that shows up. Taste is smooth with bananas, apricots and then candied sugar. Roasted malts come through on the long finish.

Yup! from a bomber. Poured a hazy orange sunset. Frothy head. Stuck my nose in the glass and got kicked in the head with a boozy fruity boot. First taste is thick, tart cherry that gets balanced by the dryness of the nose. Fine fizz on the tongue. Long warm finish...."Wow, that beer is quite a mouthful!" she says.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle on 25-Dec-2015, purchased at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Slightly hazy golden orange amber colour with a thick long lasting white head. Full to medium body and carbonation. Aroma of sweet fruit, pine, yeast, spices and malt. Flavour of fruit, sweet malt, hops and spices. Smooth. A pretty good West Coast tribute to a Belgian trippel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is looking good, cloudy dark orange, with a small firm head and sticky lacing that never goes away.
Aroma is nothing potent and somewhat typical of a belgian, however the taste is even more fruity than I was expecting; there are tropical fruit flavors really pushing through, and the bitterness is more than expected, and more reminiscent of an IPA - which isn’t a bad thing to me.
It goes down smoothly, dangerously so considering it is just a touch under 10%. This is tasty stuff, but maybe lacking a little bit of complexity that I was hoping for.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
66cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Aged specimen. Hazy golden orange colour, creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, cookie dough, warm apple sauce, spicy yeast, some citrus, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, apple sauce, yeast, light spicy, citrus, alcohol, fruity, bitter finish. Full bodied. Classic tripel imho, well done. Not overly sweet like so many American attempts to classic Belgian styles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flska från SB ca 1,5 år gammal. Skummar rejält ur flaskan. När kolsyran väl lagt sig känns den nästan lite platt. Bärnstensfärgad och klar förutom lite bottensats. Inte riktigt en stiltypisk trippel men iaf i samma härad. Inte så humlad men kanske lite mer åt en stark blond. Tydliga belgodrag med kryddig jäst, fruktestrar, honung, torkad frukt. Farlig lättdrucken och väl dold alkohol, bra balans, riktigt gott.

Very impressive American take on the Belgian style Abbey Trippel. It is a beer with the most wonderful texture which is a brilliant ode to it’s Belgian brother but with some fruity and fresh American hops to make it unique.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Large tulip glass. Attractive looking beer with orange and copper emphasis. Full finger head with quick dissipation. Funky aroma with Belgian yeast taking over. Some banana and coriander/spices. Taste is also funky with an almost sour feeling. Good spice and effervescence. There is also fruit and yeast presence. Drinkable and good but it falls short of the Belgian greats. Even falls short of better American tripels.

Mycket smak, en aning söt enligt med vad som förväntas i klassen. Ja, en öl för kvällen du du vill ha det bra.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is bought in may 2014 and has matured in my beercellar for a year.
Nice orange colored beer with a small, creamy, beige-white head. The beer is a little bit hazy. I really like that color!
Nose: Belgian yeast, fruit, pear, apple, hay, honey, spices and marzipan.
Taste: Wow! Very much sweet fruit, honey, caramel malt, banana, grass, bread, belgian yeast and citrus.
Body: Full body with medium carbonation. A complex body with a rich structure. Chewy beer! It is sweet and sour in a fantastic combination!
I didn’t try this when it was fresh but I can’t belive it could be any better than this. One year in the beercellar has matured the beer to almost perfection!
