Watery tripel. Not terrible but a bit bland for what it's supposed to be

Pours from the bottle a light golden color with a foamy white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, spice and a little alcohol. Taste is crisp and clean; sweet malt, orange, coriander and yeast. Slightly bitter and alcohol-y aftertaste. A wonderful tripel.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours like an overly carbonated lager and is as gold in color as the most hated macro brew. But looks can be deceiving. This Belgian-style ale has a sweet floral scent which invites a sip. With the initial taste a good but basic Belgian ale appears. Next, a slight sweet maltiness nicely contrasts with the mild bitterness of the celeia hops and adds to the freshness. By now, a full mouth brings forth thoughts of the autumn spices of a once enjoyed farmhouse ale, and its true texture appears. The bottle's tail end leaves you warm and satisfied but surprised with its medium-high ABV.

Bottle. This beer appears to be retired but I just picked up a bottle. Not sure if this a new release or just a very old/delayed bottle, definitely a different label than the one shown here. Pours a hazy gold with little white head, settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet, floral, fruity, apricot. Flavor is similar to smell, fruity, peach, apricot, slight spice. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium body, and slightly juicy texture, drinkable. A juicy, fruity, sweet tripel.

Pour out of bottle at the CO rare beer tasting 2012, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some white fruits with peach, hints of spice, slight cardboard, hints of earth, pretty standard. Taste was a mix of caramel, biscuit, some slight earth, lots of spice with ginger, clove, and coriander, hints of fruity esters, slight pepper notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Pretty tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Rackhouse Colorado Rare Beer Tasting. The reps claimed this was a 2001 vintage, but I think it was a 2009 vintage. Quite spicy, light clove, spritzy, spicy citrusy, a bit chewy yeasty nose. Super drinkable, lemon, light orange, spicy yeasty, light banana flavor. I wish they would make this baby again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
thanks to Owen for the bottle
Clear straw gold. Quite opaque. Good lacing with the head
Apple, honey, malt and bread in the nose.
Follows nose but a lot of apple, bear and banana.
Light bodied and crisp for a retired beer. Quite easy to drink but borders on a cider in some ways

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not the best tripel I’ve had, a bit more bitter and spicy than I like. Needs more malt sweetness.
