3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Murky yellow-orange body with a creamy medium-sized white head. Interesting aroma, kind of dusty spice and lemony tartness.
Doughy body with sugary flavour - pears and banana. Dusty peppery spice is prevalent and alcohol burns all the way through. It’s quite sweet overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
When I first tried this beer, I did not know who or where is was brewed. After tasting it, I assumed it was belgian born. After learning it’s its true origins, I was surprised. This american belgian manages to achieve the melody of caramel malty, yeasty fruit mix that is usually only found in true belgians. Worth a try, a solid tripel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Golden color, no head. Being served too cold had a negative impact in fully enjoying this beer. It would produce no head. This would also impair most, if not all, of the hidden aromas. What was salvaged from this poor pour, were the golden sweetness aromas characterized in a Belgian-Style Abbey Tripel. Flavors were sweet as well. Medium bodied. Alcohol was present although not easily detected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy light golden color with a tall somewhat creamy off white head. I keep thinking of baby aspirin every time I take a sniff. LIght honey and soft orange citric aromas. Some light spice and cranberry scents as well. Somewhat complex but certainly not that alluring. Light malt, weeds, dry spice and wild honey flavors. Neither real fruity nor spicy for my kind of triple.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked and caged. 2006 bottle conditioned. White head that was frothy and slightly fizzy, Virtually no lacing, floaties, hazy, visible carbonation, and a straw yellow hue. The nose was hoppy, sugary, apricot, spicy, coriander, and some honey notes. The flavor was sweet, lightly bitter, hoppy, fruity, spicy, sugary, ABV well hidden, and finishes dry. Mouthfeel was smooth and dry. Medium body. Good for the style, very quaffable and I would definitely drink this one again if the opportunity arises. Worthy of a try IMO.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated light yellow-orange colored body. The aroma was orange peel mild spice and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special. Not much like a Tripel with a lot of yeast in the bottom making it very hazy at the last pour and it was missing the candy notes of most Tripels.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, light fruit, light sweetness, light citrus and coriander and yeast. The flavour has the same notes and the citrus is mostly sweet types like tangerine and oranges. The body and personality could be stronger. 2393

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appears a hazy, light gold with a small white cap that slowly fades out. Streaky lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of pear, peach, pineapple, light melon, dough, and orange.
Taste is of the tropical mix mentioned in the aromas with a touch of vanilla and spice coming through with the yeast to make for some interesting flavors.
Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, sweet up front, yeasty with tropical flavors and pear hanging on to the semi-dry finish.
