2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter.
Cloudy amber color like an unfiltered apple cider. Topped with a small white head that quickly recedes to a thin ring.
Oddly, the sweet aroma has a clear suggestion of apples, and is markedly fruity.
The flavor is way too sweet, with brown sugar, alcohol, caramel malts and spices. Off style and not appealing.
O: Drinkable but not very good, and an insult to Belgian brewers to include that "Belgian-style" on the label. I’ll now avoid this brewery which may be pinning it’s forutnes on the resemblance of Left Coast to the far superior brewrs, Lost Coast and Left Hand.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Pours dull cloudy amber with minimal head, mild sour flavour and aroma, very smooth with no hint of the huge alcohol content. Dangerously drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 oz bottle in the Greenville Beer Exchange tasting event in Greenville, NC.
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a small white head.
Belgian yeast, sweetness, mild bitterness and malty dryness. A bit unbalanced and sweet aroma. The flavour is sweetness, alcohol, malt, spices and hoppy bitterness. Quite typical strong American Belgian brew.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with very little head. Bubblegum, cloves, and alcohol. Medium body. Bubblegum and sweet alcohol taste. Not the best tripel.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
as soon as i started to pur this i thought "aww, man this fucker is oxidized, how old is it?" paper dust cardboard notes are strong. smells like old wax wrapped around dry honey. pours what can only be described as piss when you haven’t been drinking enough liquids. first sip is all husked up grains and age/ this tastes like someone with alzheimers made oatmeal. just so many things are wrong. and i have 22oz’s to drink. i will look for another sample, but will post this rating in case it is a beer issue and not an age issue.no bottle dates that i can see so i can’t disqualify this from that info.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"A solid if not spectacular triple. Equal parts sweet, fruit, bubble gum and clove like spice, nose and flavor the same. Medium bodied. Shoes some alcohol but not too bad."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crisp yet hazy golden color. Aroma is of spice and more of a tar rather than resin. Hints of banana and clove with a slight earthy and malty tone. Taste of spice and clove with a hint of honey and hay mixed with dough. Sweetness hits you in the front and light bitterness in the back which fades quickly. Overall this is a good beer in which I could drink again. It’s not bad at all but yes I have had better Belgians

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique January 2014. Great beer and great label. Fruity notes fill the nose and the beer fills the mouth with wonderful flavours - melon, peach, nectarine.
