3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of residue at the bottle opening upon uncapping this. Hazy cider-colored stuff lacking much of a head at all. Very malty aroma, along with grapefruit and honey. Palate is a bit thin at 1st, then becomes gritty, oily and hoppy. Seems more of an American Strong Ale? Don’t detect alcohol.

The pour reveals a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Good aroma of resinous hops and yeast. Good flavor of resinous hops, yeast, sweetness and citrus, there’s strong bitterness in the finish. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dark caramel, thick, sediment abound, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy nose, fairly floral, but has
an odd aged cheese tinge.   Fairly hop centered on flavor, there exists a light Belgian espect.   Fairly floral on the tongue,
semi-sweet, lingering hop bitterness.   Has quite a bit of hop flavor but this one is more like a Pale Ale in its bitterness.
Moderate to full bodied, average mouthfeel.   Semi-sweet finish, perhaps the only area that seems somewhat Belgian.   Not much of a
Tripel, but more like a decent heavy Pale Ale with a Belgian tinge.   Thanks Dan for the bottle!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This abbey triple pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, some honey and some hops. A medium bodied triple. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and a touch grapefruity. Nice balance, Think they did a nice job trying to meld to diverging beer styles here, its more of a IPA than a Abbey Triple, but there is a nice yeastiness and sweetness to this beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2007 PP SAF Bottle (#1708)brought by Goldtwins, thanks: Deep hazy amber with a frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, pear, floral and grassy bitters, honey and biscuity malt. The taste is fruity and sugary with a moderate bitterness in the background. Spicy and phenolic on the finish. The mouth feel is sharp, biting and woody dry. Not too bad but seems to miss the complexity I hoped for.
