3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is very malty and fruity with enough hops to be assertive. The appearance is light amber with a small foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Great tripple! Frothy white head with a thick orange color. Smells of yeast and an excellent fruity taste. Yummmmm.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a rather tall white head. Smells strangely of grass and lemon zest. A bit tart, too. Is it supposed to be that way? Not much in the way of malt or sweetness like you’d expect from a tripel... The flavor is pure pineapple juice which is nice, but also not intended (at least, I’m fairly certain of that). There’s a bit of acidity and tartness to it and a pretty obvious lack of maltiness/sweetness. Medium body with high carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Mostly clear orange color, nice white head, leaving lace. Nice, fruity estery spicy taste. Good, light carbonation, nice crisp sharp mouthfeel, and spicy aftertaste. An enjoyable and spicy tripel, a nice take on the belgian style. Strong sweet taste, maybe a bit too sweet. Something chalky about the texture.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 ounce bottle into globe glass, 2011 bottle. Pours slightly cloudy deep golden straw color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap. Some nice lacing clings on the glass as well; good amount of carbonation streaming up from the bottom. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, pear, candi sugar, clove, tart and spicy yeast. Nice aromas with big strength. Pretty much spot on from what I was expecting from the style; pretty much no alcohol noticed in the aromas. Taste of huge pear, apricot, lemon, caramel, candi sugar, biscuit, clove, pepper, spicy yeast, and a bit of tart grains. Lingering notes of pear, apricot, pepper, clove, and tart spiciness on the finish for a bit. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel. Nice and easy drinking, but is still a sipper as expected. Alcohol is nicely hidden, but there is still a decent sized warming on the finish. Overall this is easily one of the best American made Tripels I have ever had. Super fruity, yet balanced. Easy to drink despite being 10%.

Draft: Babyfood banana nose with apricots underneath. Clear amber, thin head. Doughy banana flavor with apricot accents, particularly in the finish. Subtle lemongrass. Drinks a little warm even for 10. Solid wheaty tripel.
