3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale golden with a small fizzy white head. Really nice fruity aroma with orange zest, mango, a hint of pineapple in there, as well as a bit of mint. Flavor is also quite fruity, a good bit of grapefruit, and a bit of the others mentioned in the aroma. A bit flat and watery though. Texture is plain, and also watery

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blah...not any better than the Dear Abbey Dubbel. Pale yellow pour, watery trippel taste with the faint presence of dirty sweatsocks. Some pepper and a nice level of spices. It was a good level of spiciness, which was the saving grace for this one. I held this bottle for someone to share with, but in a moment of weakness, I opened it to drink by myself. Not bad enough to drain pour, but not good enough to really enjoy. Blah.

Aroma of flowers, some fruits. Flavor is sweet, but nothing awe inspiring. Not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours completely clear, odd for a Belgian right? Aroma of Banana, fruit, cloves-actually a pretty nice aroma. Flavor is a bit off for a Tripel. Mouthfeel-carbonation is right on, nice and frothy, but there are some off flavors, like a strange metallic-sourness that sticks to your tongue--infection? Does have hints of fruit, spice, but ending is pretty harsh and not bitter in a good way. Its not delicately balanced, I feel like this is a whore’s job on a Tripel.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright clear orange color. Apple and floral hop aroma. Yeast and bread flavors with a blast of fruit thrown in there at the end. Ok, not great here. This is more appropriate for a refreshing drink on a hot day than a wide variety of palate flavors and sensations.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured an extremely clear bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma was mostly orange notes and a tad bit of yeast. Flavor was sort of weak - kind of like a more flavorful pale ale. Palate was nice a smooth and easy to drink. Refreshing spring/summer beer.
