Nephilium (1323) - Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Hints of banana and bubble gum in the aroma. Pours a clear light amber, with a quickly fading white head. Nice light mouthfeel, taste is hints of spice with a touch of citrus. Alcohol just barely noticeable in the finish. For the price, it’s a good deal.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Aroma was bland. Some hops, yeast, sour fruit. Color was orange. Small white head, faded. Taste was yeast, though very little Belgian Wang, molasses. Not bad. Lacks deeper qualities, but pleasant taste carries it.

Damico (2503) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
The Tripel pours thicker orange golden with a bigger creamy sandy head. The aroma brings some raw dough yeast flavors dominating with some fruity undertones. The flavor brings some citrus fruity thicker malts, any spice that was present has faded over the years. The body is not too thick, but just full enough.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2013
Backlog rating 2-94-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small fizzy ivory head that was mostly lasting, fizzy carbonation, hazy body, good amount of lacing, and the hue of the body is golden. The Aroma is fruity, sweet, spicy, some hint of banana, and yeasty. The Taste is sweet, spicy, fruity, hoppy, and has a dry finish. The Palate is medium and this is a medium bodied beer. I enjoyed the way the flavors of this beer come together and it has a nice warming sensation to it. This is a good beer to drink on a cold snowy day. It is worth trying and not only would I drink it again, but also recommend it.

PhillyCraft (3142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bought at Monster Beverage, Pours a cloudy orange with thin lacing and not much head. Aromas and taste of apples, white pepper, clove and other spice. Smaller notes of pear, and light caramel malts in the close. Pretty good beer made for the 40th anniversary of the album. 3.6

Huhzubendah (2420) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2012
22 oz. bottle poured into two Tripel Karmeliet glasses. Clean copper in color. Head leaves a touch of lacing on the glass. Not a bad beer, but I probably wouldn’t get it again. There are many tripel style beers I prefer to this one. Lacks the complexity and lingering fruity aftertaste that I am used to from St. Bernadus, Tripel Karmeliet, Allagash, etc. Smooth tasting and easy to drink. Overall, not bad, but doesn’t measure up to the elite tripels.

Tasting at Mes and Sims flat. Hazy amber beer. Softish dry palate. Rich malt. German style it feels like, definitely a bit Marzen.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2012
Bomber from Decicco Ardsley NY. Nice golden pour with a thick head. Dry grassy (in a good way) hoppy with no hints if anything! Nice homage to Frank!
