A golden colored beer with a large head. A lemon and perfume aroma. The flavor is somewhat sour with more lemons and some vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is rather creamy. Tripels just dont start my dog I guess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, golden bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Aroma of bready Belgian yeast and some sweet pale maltiness and coriander. Starts lightly pale malty and sweet with a nice balance of coriander spice and black peppery yeast. Exhibits pretty good balance and authenticity. A nice abbey tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Draught sample.
Location: Dilly Deli (Cincinnati)
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.

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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
