3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle was waxed, capped, and corked, perhaps a bit of overkill for a tripel. But attractive. Beer poured a deep gold or light copper depending on your point of view. Not much head. Aroma was yeast and light fruit. Flavor was very fruity, with apricot, peach, and blood orange, sitting on light honey oriented malts. Light hay on the finish, with some faint spice. Better than I was expecting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dirty straw color with a white head. Aromas of straw, grass, pepper and bread. Fruity qualities were downplayed compared to other tripels. Sourdough bread flavor of the pilsner malt is very apparant, and the hops leave a peppery flavor to balance. Yeast flavors are pretty mild, but it’s there. Finishes dry and slightly toasty, very nice flavor on the throat. Medium bodied texture, both creamy and slick. Rather simple in flavor compared to most tripels, but nothing tastes off (like Golden Monkey does to me). Nice to sample.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Rogue Ales Public House in SF. Menu board claims that this is in the XS series. Slightly cloudy dark gold. A serious white head of great staying power. Mild estery bubble gum aroma. Fairly thick palate. The sweetness is huge, but it has a malty, not candy sweetness. Has a quick finish without the pacman tartness. Nicely medicinal at the end.

The motherfucking cork is a bitch to get off. This shit pours like apple juice and the head is like an apple juice head. Mahfucker smells like perfume and apple cider. Flavor has some peach and perfume and apple cider. This beer is pretty good and I drink it again.
