3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a stubby capped 11.2 oz. brown bottle with a best before date on the lower right side of label, 03/2008, served in a chalice at cellar temperature.
Made a decent appearance, poured a hazy orange hued pale golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, good carbonation.
Had a lemony, peppery, dry yeasty and spicy alcohol nose.
A crisp, slick and carbonated smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good sipping drinkability.
Pear fruity, clove and peppery taste, a sweet maltiness, solvent flavored alcohol warmth in the palate, and a sweet malty crisp, yeasty and solvent finish.
A nice tripel, tasty and balanced overall, a good sipper on a warm midwest night.

Pours clear medium yellow with a huge frothy head. Boring aroma, slightly yeasty. Burning mouthfeel from all the alcohol, tastes of little else besides. Another one for the sink from Honsebrouck.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a very hazy golden with a small lacing head. Aroma was very fruity, bubblegum, Belgian spices and yeast. Very nice aroma. Flavor along the same lines. Some lemon and listed as a Tripel at the bar which I would agree with. Very solid for the style.
