4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Fairly dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light creaming carbonation. Aromas of big apple, pear, grape, lemon, candi sugar, honey, bread, clove, light pepper, floral, herbal earthiness, and yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and spicy notes; without feeling too malty. Taste of pear, apple, grape, lemon, honey, candi sugar, bready grain, floral, clove, light pepper, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, honey, candi sugar, bready grain, clove, light pepper, floral, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a moderately slick and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice tripel. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for 11.8%. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with spices and herbs. Similar flavour with a decent hop bite. Alcohol is warming but not too overpowering. Spicy and hoppy finish. Decent but not out-standing.

light golden pour with medium white head - aromas of grass and hay with some malt and mild fruity hops - barnyard belgian style flavor (of which I’m not a huge fan) - with lingering fizzy malt

This has been one of their best beers. Slight fruity taste without being overbearingly floral, frothy, somewhat spicy with a tad sweetness. Fully enjoy this beer that adds a nice kick than most. Great sipping beer.

Dark golden color with a nice head. I smell fruit, malt, and big yeast. I taste all of the same plus spice and hoppy sweet finish. I like this ale......

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I bought this beer mostly because it was cheap, bad idea. It smelled grainy and nothing like a tripel. It tasted like a very oxidized barleywine that used Belgian yeast. The alcohol was unbearable. This was truly a bad beer and I would not buy it again. It really does not fit the style either.
