3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice medium-pale reddish-gold color & very clear appearance, with beautiful, long-clinging lace despite the sparse head. The appearance does little to prepare you for this taste sensation, surprisingly bold and rich for such a light colored ale. After having half a glass, I was surprised to see the alcohol content, the same as the Urthel Quadrium I had very recently but not nearly as pronounced in the taste, despite the Urthel’s substantially thicker texture & taste. A nice bit of sweetness & fruit, very refreshing with a smooth, solid finish that lingers light but long. At about two-thirds to one-half the price of a comparable ale either of Belgian or domestic origin, this is a great beer and a great value that I hope to enjoy many more times.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours honey golden with a very thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, barley, and hops. Medium bodied with a slow, smooth finish. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at PP Strong Ale Fest 2009. Some yeasty banana aroma that is quite strong, and not exactly enjoyable. I suspect higher alcohols may be part of it. Kind of reduces drinkability.

Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, fruity, orange, moderate to heavy yeasty, alcohol. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, peppery. Body is medium, texture is oily - syrupy, carbonation is soft, finish feel is moderate alcoholic.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger foamy white head. The nose is perfume-like and spicy with a bit of acetone and pale malt. Minimal yeast noticeable. Very sweet and heavy pale malt flavor with a little too much alcohol. This is quite a boring Triple. Too heavy, thick, and cloying with light fizzy carbonation. No yeast character at all to this beer. I want a softer, more yeasty Triple. This just didn’t do it for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from COOP in Davis. This Tripel was rather sweet, but I tend to like that. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t quite the normal Belgian, but it’s a refreshing California Belgian. Good drinkable beer on a warm day.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dilute iced tea color, small amounts of coarse head. Aroma of lilies, light cigarette ash, light doughiness, cloviness. Very sweet, doughy flavor, lots of instant tea notes. Light bitterness doesn’t do nearly enough to offset the extreme sweetness. Boring and overbearingly sweet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a luminous golden color, translucent, with modest white head. Nose reminds me of a white wine with some light fruits, perhaps honey, but also alcohol & phenols. A lot of sweetness is present on the palate, again with fruit, and quite a bit of alcohol warmth on the finish. Not a great example of a tripel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 65cl, shared by Papsoe. It’s a clear, golden beer, completely flat and without head. There’s alcohol, some spicyness, phenols and tropical fruits in the aroma. The flavor is a bit too much on the alcohol and phenolic side, with a nice addition of tropical fruits and some spices. Full-bodied, dry and sweetish. A bitter, sweet, spiced and very warm flavor finishes the whole thing. A decent one, but way too focused on alcohol. 090821

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pitcher pour at 2009 GABF. Pours a thin head, over a clear pale yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose has some spice (clove, coriander) toffee....taste is dominated by sweetness, with a hot finish....mouth feel is light, as is carbonation. This unfortunately was completely unbalanced and dominated by the sweetness. Interestingly, the volunteer doing the serving said "you’ll like the barrel aged better". Tasting on 9/26/09.
