rdixon77 (694) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Interesting tripel. Amber pour. Aroma of honey, apples, lemon, alcohol. Taste foregoes usually tripel sweetness for pleasant apple tartness. Boozy throughout. Pretty good.

Interesting beer. It is much more subdued than a triple adding almost like just apple essence and mineral water.

Tap. Deep golden with small head. Big apple. Lightly tart. Not as sweet as I expected for a tripel. Darn good anyway.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft at the brewpub, Sawyer. Murky medium orange-brown body, thin off-white head. Estery nose dominated by circus peanuts or Dubble Bubble bubblegum. Cider is much more prominent in the tart, appley body. Unfortunately the cider overwhelms most of the base beer, although the eaters peek through in the palate and mostly in the finish. Not a huge fan of this beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2013
On tap at Greenbush brewpub as BA Vanderbish. Cloudy amber with a thin off-white crown. Aroma of cider, vanilla, alcohol, tannins and yeast. Taste of apples and booze with tannins, cinnamon, yeast, mild fruit and mild candi sugar. A touch sour and hot.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Tap. Poured hazy brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex tart apple, alcohol and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & tart flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sweet finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a refreshing solid beer that exceeded my expectations.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Sampler on tap at the brewpub (Sawyer, MI). Pours a richly hazed amber gold hue. Darker haze, with golden orange hues. A bigger cakey offwhite head sits atop, laces ok and dies to a film eventually. Aromas are citrusy and bready, honey lemon elements take over, a bit sweet with grass, florals, gentle spice. Richer lemony honey sweetness, some apple and pear. Initial is medium bodied, a bit sweet and bold up front. Touches of ABV related heat, grass and florals, lemon and citrus. Gentle kisses of honey, apple cider elements, apple fruit. Middle is gentle growing sweetness, goney and dough, apples, some pear, cider. Backend shows gentle spice, tartness, but still sweeter and a touch hot. Finish is mellow, a touch dry, with apples and grass showing the way. Not bad. A bit big, but drinkable, a bit sweet at times. Meh.
