3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Doesn’t really taste too much like a Belgian style tripel. Pours a very interesting clear copper color with a white head. Not much smell, a littl thyme and a little booze. Taste is very malty and boozy, but not much beyond that. Would be decent for a strong ale, but not complex enough for a Belgian tripel. Maybe a little boozy for its own good. Paired with a peach mozzarella spring salad cuts out some of the maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear gold, minimumal head, and low carbonation. Nice strong sweet and spicy aroma. Flavor is mild spice, pepper, and buttery. Somewhat syrupy on the palate and a warming in the gut. ABV is nicely hidden. Overall, I enjoyed this, but I’m not sure this is true to style hence the lower score.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured medium golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and smoky notes with honey and meaty bread backing.. warm. The flavor found honey and lightly-smoked bread at the core, with peppery alcohol around.. finished spicy and hot. Heavier-bodied with low-ish carbonation.. a bit rough.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a thin head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is overripe fruit, candy-like.
The taste is quite sweet overall with some pear and apple. Finishes with an alcohol warmth.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a very sweet tasting beer without any of the complexities and balance of a good tripel.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very fruity, sweet, and boozy on the nose. Pours a very flat head--would have liked more lively carbonation. Little strong and a little sweet for me, though certainly worth a try!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy orange hard candy with no head. Aroma:caramel, spruce, herbs, basement aromas, alcohol, maybe some banana, vanilla... Most interesting aspect of the brew. Taste is way sour... Palate: Lingering bitter astringent... Won’t buy again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 fl oz / 650ml bottle into a trappist glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Sweetish, maybe a little caramel. Yeast is slightly sour. Not the typical fresh bread that I’m used to from Belgian style ales.
Appearance: Hazy, dark amber body, very sparse head.
Taste: Sourish, tart yeast. A little bit of spice; cloves, nutmeg. Pretty exceptionally tart though. Eh.
Palate: Medium body, long boozy finish. The alcohol is obvious. Kind of a warmer.
Overall: Not what I was expecting at all. After having Chimay’s Triple a couple of days ago, and Rochefort 10, I was expecting something a little breadier, a little sweeter. It’s a good beer, and a fun take on the style, but it’s not my favorite, and I think I prefer a slightly sweeter Triple/Quad over this guy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good overall appearace out of the bottle. Syrupy smooth and sweet with high yeast taste. Alcohol is ever present when sipping this concotion. Finish one 22 bomber and you will know why the alky is in the taste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear caramel color. Sweet yeasty aroma. Starts off sweet and yeasty but mellows during the sip into nice and smooth. Rinses away silky leaving the palate enticed and stimulated.
