3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured cloudy gold with a decent sized white bubbly head. Aroma of lots of fruit, apple, citrus, pear, spices, yeast. Almost like a champagne. Taste is similar with lots of fruit, yeast, and spice. Mouth is very light and heavily carbonated, dry. Overall, a nice tripel that has many champagne characteristics.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brought back from WA. Awesome label. Pours a cidery yellow color with a trim white head. Loaded with yeast and overripe apples and oranges in the aroma. Tastes similar with a large amount of candied sugar for balance. Very approachable for a tripel, but not particularly complex or memorable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured opaque yet lustrous golden body, looked very much like a gemstone, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a ring around the glass. Aroma was sweet orange, wheat, lemon, candi sugar, some cantaloupe, and very yeasty. Flavor was sweet candi sugar, toffee, citrus, white raisins, alcohol. Carbonation dances atop the tongue and burns along with the alcohol down the throat, and produces a very yeast bite. Good body for a tripel but too much alcohol.

Pour is the clearest gold uncharacteristic of the style. Yum! Aroma is chock full of candi sugar lending a honey/malty/worty aroma that is very sweet. Yeast is very strong in there too. Flavor is caaaaandi sugar and malt and yeast and heaven.
