stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours opague orange/copper, when poured has no head, then a slowly thinwhite head arises. Aroma of citrus, fruit, sweetness, and slight traces of hops in the nose. The flavor is sweet, citrus, smooth, nice subtle hoppy undertone, but the body is thin, and the brew is a little unimaginable.

Draft. Dilly Deli in Mariemont. Sample glass made leans towards ordering Chouffe instead. A tripel with nothing notable that really caught my attention in the few swallows that I had. Thin, dry and a bit weak and not quite up to the standards of a tripel. Pass

Date: 4/05/2007
Serving: Draught sample.
Location: Dilly Deli (Cincinnati)

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Typical Belgian fruitiness and subtle spice with a hint of vinegar.
Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head.
Flavor: Seems to be somewhat complex. It has the typical Belgian fruit and spice flavors, but it is also somewhat sour and funky with a lingering acidic/vinegar flavor.
Palate: Medium to medium-full with a milky texture.
Overall: Good. Interesting and quite memorable.

Draft at the Dilly Deli. Pours a hazy golden color with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good spicy sweet fruity aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Full complex flavor with medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Very interesting soft brew.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 5, 2007
What in the world happened here this is a trippel. Barnyard funk all over the place. Poured a light light golden color. Aroma was sasion like. Flavor was funk and light fruits. Awful

750 ml bottle into a Tulip glass. Pours a very hazed and cloudy orange with a slight amberish hue, looking very Saisonish. Not much of a head whatsoever. Very half sweet honey vanilla aroma with a bit of grain. Flavor is actually really disappointing. Very flat, bits of the honey and grain come through on the flavor with a tiny bit of the Saaz hops coming through in the end. Really buttery. No lingering finish, and really nothing interesting. No hint at 9% at all. Really not all that impressed whatsoever. I’d honestly expect more from Rogue...especially for what they’re charging for this - except for the fact that really, they’ve never pulled off a super successful Belgian style ale. Tastes more like a light, sweet, Saison.

Bottle: Dull straw, quite hazy, moderate sudsy white head, dies quickly making it appear fairly still, hardly any lacing.   Doesn’t look all that appealing.   Dull grassy notes, semi-sweet, hay and oats.   No floral aspect that I can detect.   Combination sweet straw, grassy malts, a little barnish, with a slight cheese funk on the backside.   Not what I expected for a "Belgian Style Triple".   Body and mouthfeel are at best moderate.   Finish has a little oat/hay funk, cereal oriented sweet twang.   I think I paid around $14 for a 750ml of this... and now I feel cheated.   I know Arlen could do a better job than this.   This was too much like homebrew!

Pours very hazy gold-orange with a two-finger head. This head disappears rather quickly. Very spicy, briny aroma with a big banana bread base. Some yeast and light fruit. Had to take a few sips to get a furtive handle on the flavor; this thing’s so velvety that I found it hard to concentrate on anything other than mouthfeel. Out of the bottle, it’s almost like it’s hand-pumped. The flavor is pretty standard tripel fare: yeasty and spicy. Sweetness creeps in towards the end, honeyish and fruity. The finish is grainy, relatively dry, and a tad astringent. Decent domestic tripel, but Allagash has nothing to worry about.

An abbey trippel, are you kidding me? Geez, this was more of a sour/tart farmhouse beer than any abbey anything???? Poured a golden clear color (filtered?) with a thin white head. Aroma was funky, barnyard, lemons, grapes. The flavor was funky, grapes, apples, pears, black pepper, more of a saison imo. Totally caught me off guard pretending to be a tripel. Yeast, where are the yeasties? Mouthfeel was light, crisp, dry. Would have scored higher as a saison.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. Tropical notes. Some light spice. Smells like a nice cider. Light mouthfeel, and somewhat dry as well. Not much flavor, and I was hoping for more of a kick from a tripel. Tart finish, but doesn’t really live up to expectations.
