750ml bottle shared with Tom to finish off our little tasting: Cloudy amber hued with small head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, banana, clove, pepper. yeasty phenolic esters along with some cane sugar and bready malt. The taste is sweet and quite fruity with a twangy midesection before heading off towards a dry earthy and woody finish. The mouth feel is soft and lush, full-bodied brew. Nice enough but lacks the depth of the better examples of the genre. Sweet and fruity but not much else going on.

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.

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.

TAP: at the Happy Gnome (St. Paul, MN) on 1.17.09. Gold/amber color, small foam head. Some citrus and hop on the nose. Taste is bread, caramel, raisin, tangy citrus. Nice tripel, but light on spice.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Aroma of yeasty esters. Peach, spice, and grassy hops in the back side of the aroma. Pours a vibrant hazy golden orange with the thinnest of heads. Sweet flavors of soft citrus, orange, peach, some bready malts. A little bit of pear and lemon in the finish. A little spice and grass too. Pretty easy to drink. I did not feel that it was as sweet as the previous rater stated, but to each their own. Finished rather tart which seemed off for the style, whatever. I enjoyed it. Pretty drinkable all things considered.

Growler fill from New Beer. Etoh predominates this beer. Taste is spices with strong etoh coming through strong in the taste. A strong sweet candi malt with honey and dry pilsner malt. Fruit cantelope peach come across but a bit astringent due to the strong alcohol presence. not for me.

This wins the prize for the most secured bottle of beer I’ve ever had to break into ... corked, capped and wax-sealed. Damn, I was thirsty by the time I got in there. This poured a lightly hazy orange-yellow, quietly active but without much of a staying head. The aroma is very, very sweet, almost like a syrupy fruit salad or a can of mandarin oranges. This drinks as one would expect for a tripel ... yeasty, lightly fruity (mostly blood orange-like sweetness) and a pulpy body. Nice tangy finish. This drinks quite well and would go well with an Asian salad or a plate of mild cheeses. (#3126, 10/7/2007)

Bottle. Fruity with clear wooden and horseblanket notes on top. Hazy orange, lacing layer. Tropical fruits, cider, spice. Dry sparkly mouthfeel, medium body. Quick tart apple finish. Nice, not sure it lives up to the price though.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle: Fairly clear gold color, nice white head and a little lacing. The nose is lightly skunky with a bit of yeast, light snappy hops and pilsner malt. The yeast is very light, almost like they used pacman yeast, comes across like a spicy pilsner. The flavor is estery though with bright acidity and alcohol notes. Good balanced body, a bit sharp in the mouthfeel. Nice toastiness, brash esters and alcohol. Like good bread with bad crust.
