From bomber. Pours a moderately light gold with a finger-and-a-half of off-white head. Fair bit of carbonation and activity. Nose is bubble gum and dough. Watery finish with a little kick late. Sweet with some spice. The 9.3% will make sure it gets finished; otherwise forgettable.

650 ml. Clear golden with a lasting film of cream. Aroma of finely spun honey, evergreen resin and light white wine. Tastes of bees wax, white grape must, clove-spiced pear, an indeterminate faux-citrus hard candy, resin and booze. Near-medium body is balanced and has a smooth, low-average carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
this tripel had a clear yellow-gold pour and made a white one finger head that receded to a cover of bubbles and ring (as I poured towards the bottom of the bottle, the beer got hazy from the sediment), the glass had a good flowing center stream with a few stray bubbles, the glass had nice spots and fingers of lacing on the sides, the bottom of the bottle had a loose layer of light brown colored sediment,
there were aromas of banana and orange fruit, light malt, some pepper with faint grass and spice, faint fruit sweetness,
it had flavors of pear, orange and faint apple, spice, very light malt and bread, some fruit sweetness and faint lemon citrus,
the finish had a bit of spiciness that ends on the tongue,
the mouth feel was light with a bit of creaminess and average carbonation, I thought this ale felt a little fuller (heavier) than the better tripel ales I had sampled,
a good tripel beer.

Light golden with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy yeast with some mild black pepper. Flavor is some black pepper with some slight banana. Very easy drinking for a tripel, but it could use some stronger flavors.

Clear golden pour with small off white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, bubblegum and caramel. Taste of yeast, candy sugar, caramel, spice and slightly dry hoppy finish. Pretty good but a little cloying at the end.

22. Pours a cloudy medium gold with a surging sudsy white head. Spotty lace. Big sweet banana nose. Not really a tripel. Ok. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bananas and an intense dark balsa wood acetic dryness. Long dry finish.

22oz bottle, 2013 vintage. Totally clear golden color. Nice continually ascending column of bubbles in the center. Good thin white head, couple loose splotches of lace. Bigger body. Good smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. A bit lighter and less effervescent than your typical belgian example, but I like it.. Makes for an easy-drinker. Some light banana, bit of orange citrus. Scaled back belgian candy sugar, but it’s there. Very nice flavor to this. Really enjoyable on the porch during a sunday evening after work. Light to moderate sweet taste, good light bit of spice. Very satisfying, tasty example of an American tripel.
