3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy while watching NFL quarter finals. Hazy dark golden yellow, lackluster head that retains poorly. Aroma is sweet barley candy, almonds, honey, and spices. Flavours of sweet pale malts, dried hay and flowers (chamomile), medium spices. Finish is a tad hot with alcohol. Medium bitterness. Just okay for me.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle.. some of the hardest wax to get off with a cork beneath.. dirty liquid made its way through the cork onto the top, and the damn cork broke halfway out. Eventually I get this f*er in the glass.. poured nearly clear bright golden with a short cap of white head.. a few Rogue chunks of cork made it into the glass as well. The aroma picked up tart lighter fruit skins and a lovely dose of floral and grassy hops over honey and more fruit.. warmth brought out dirty white pepper and vanilla.. excellent nose! The flavor couldn’t quite hold up to the aroma, but it was still quite tasty.. tart light fruits and floral bitterness opened as expected, with biscuity malts joining semi-sweet honey on the middle.. earth and white peppery spice on the edges.. finished with the tasty spices over honey.. all of the elements came together well, but they didn’t pop like in the aroma. Medium-bodied with a sweet overall complexion on the palate.. nothing but tasty stuff here.. greatly exceeded my expectations!

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Malty, yeasty, slight citrus and earth aroma. Sweet orange and malt flavor with yeast, a bit of dust, and earth. Possibly a bit of tartness as well. Medium body - carbonation a little low. Lingering orange, citrus, malt, and yeast. Different, but not bad.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This orange ale poured with a thin off-white head, eliciting a fruity aroma. The flavor is very harsh for a tripel-style ale. The candy sugar is quite noticeable, and there are notes of citrus, herbs and cinnamon. However, it was not as sweet as I expected. This beer is drinkable, but not remarkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Rogue Ales and Public House, Portland.
Yeasty wheat aroma; a bit fruity. Very sweet and very alcoholic up front, then with a wildly bitter hop and alcohol finish. A bit too cloying, but then the hammer falls. Interesting interpretation of a tripel, though could be better assembled.

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.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light malty aroma with some fruity sweetness and a light yeasty note. The flavor is fruity sweet with notes of peach, licorice, and a light spiciness. Not bad.
