3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ Raja Liquors in Livermore, CA. The pour: Good caramel color, with very good head retention. The bouquet: some good maltiness, breadiness, and fresh yeastiness, as a trippel should be. The palate: creamy, I agree with the banana aroma, but also with hints of fuits such as peaches or nectarines. The hoppiness that come through lets you know this is a "California" brewed trippel. The finish is mild and pleaseant. This is a slighlty lighter version of a Rochefort trippel. Great job!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Picked up at Beermoth, Manchester, about two years ago. Gold, with a little haze. Some baby floaters. Ring and film of white head. Nose has barley sugar sweets. Dried peach and nectarine. Not unlike a peach crumble, really. Hints of biscuit malts, and light, autumnal spice. Taste is sweet, fruity and phenolic. Some spice. Some light bitterness. Full mouthfeel, but not to the tune of 9.7%. Sweet, spicy finish. Hint of fruity bitterness. Nicely refined tripel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a really good beer. Pours a vibrant and opaque amber hue with a big frothy white head. Aromas consisting of fruit (apricot, peach, light citrus) and some funk. Good normal Tripel flavors with some noble hop presence as well; giving it a slight Bohemian Pilsner-like finish. Medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
