2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle with a best before date of 07/05/09. Large frothy, very fizzy white head, splotchy lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. The aroma was alcohol, fruity, malt, and some perfume notes. The flavor was sweet, alcohol, fruity, and acidic. Medium bodied. I did not enjoy this beer whatsoever as the flavor was outright weird and funky and this entire beer just did not come together for me at all. Next!!

50cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a very thin white head. Smells of spoiled fruit, but not offensive, with notes of sweet maltiness as well. Flavor is slightly sour with a mildly sweet finish. Notes of fresh fruit are present as well. Lively carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold, little head. Fruity peach and apple aroma. Tangy and sharp with citrus a little astringency and some noticeable bitterness in the finish. These Greens beers share a tartness, thin body, lack of malt or hop flavor and make it hard to rate them particularly since the bottles claim beer styles. That said, none have been horrible, though this is my least favorite so far.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Kegs & Barrels, McKinney, TX. Poured a hazy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma is citris, of what knd, Iím not sure. Flavor is more like a white wine with a slight lemon tang to it and dry. Has high carbination (Thank God) and a light-medium body. Compared from what I have tried of beers made of similar ingredients, this wasnít half bad. Still, not something I would rush t the store for unless I was Vegan and allergic to gluton.......or wheat and barley were no longer available....

Bottle from Henryís market in Santee. Not gonnaí waste a lot of words on this--Diacetyl on the nose, sharp lemon citrus, vinegar and cayenne in the flavor, watery mouthfeel, short harsh lemony finish. A $5 drainpour. Avoid.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a lovely golden yellow with a great head & lacing. Aroma of faint apples - nothing malty or hoppy going on here. Tastes like poorly-made apple cider. Not the slightest bit reminiscent of an abbey tripel. Overcarbonated. Yuck.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml, bb not stamped. Hazy, golden with a medium head that settles into a sticky, lasting half-inch and leaves bubbly frosting all over the glass. Aroma is apple cider, cherry cough drops, and white wine. Flavor is amazingly similar, with lambic yeast tart cherry flavors dominating. Not a bad brew if you consider it a lambic or cider, but very unexpected flavor for a tripel! My low ratings are in comparing this to other tripels; if you desire a barley or wheat free beer this is not a bad choice. Light body is astringent and dry.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin head.† Aroma of sour apple and pears.† Flavor is similar, but weak with a wierd aftertaste.† Perhaps the addition of wheat, milk, nuts, celery, mustard, or sulphites would actually help!
