3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Framcisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a hazy bright yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of caramel, sweet orange and some yeastiness. Flavour is rather smooth with caramel, orange, lemon zest, yeast and subtle honey notes. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel with a warming fruity finish. Good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 11C. Gold with an inch of white head that never quite disappears. Aroma of lemon, flowers, plenty of candi sugar, slight dough and herbs. Immensely sweet with cloves and pepper at the end. Grew on me a bit as the shock of the sweetness wore off - there’s some slightly astringent pineapple, pears, apricot and dough in there too but it all gets monstered - "huge amount" of candi sugar indeed. But the alcohol is not raw and the mouthfeel’s pleasant enough. Some interesting things going on, but far too sweet for me for this sort of thing.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Seems more like a wheat beer gone awry. This is one mess of a Triple. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with tart apple skin, bubble gum...just really overkill on the esters with not a whole lot of anything else going on. Cloyingly sweet. Nasty. I’m done with Rogue...they’ve burned me one too many times.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold with minimal head.
Sweet candy like aroma typical of a Tripel.
Sweet flavor with a strange aftertaste. Alcohol is very evident.
A little rough and this one has been in the cellar a bit too.

Hazy gold, with clove, sweet semi medicinal aroma and taste. Seems a bit under attenuated.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron for the pour! Pour is fizzy orange yellow, slightly hazy, thin to no white head. Aroma has notes of some grape, pear and slight peach notes, some off sugary candy notes with hints of bready and biscuity malts, no spice in there. Taste is some sweet candied fruits with pear and lots of grape notes, hints of some biscuity bread notes, getting to a touch of ethanol, finishing very sweet. Eh.

It’s a Belgian triple, and fits the style OK. I feel it could have a bit more flavor and aroma for a Belgian beer, but overall not bad. Nothing specific to critique.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Not much head when poured. Clear, golden orange appearance with a small white head. Very tangy, orange fruity, bready yeasty, richly fruity aroma. Slightly boozy, bready, almost cloying, sugary, orange citrusy flavor. Noticeable alcohol. Some oxidation which I guess isn’t too surprising, as this bottle is probably two years old. Not horrible but it was way too expensive for the quality.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Copper pour with a frothy white head. Sweet citrus and stone fruits on the nose with some bland yeast undertones. Some pepper and citrus in the taste, quite spicey. Bit boring but not bad
