Nick shared a bottle at the house with Brian and I. Snifters. Pours a fairly cloudy yellow-orange with a large pillow head. The lacing was quite nice. Aroma is light fruits like lemons, pears, and hint of apple with some sweet candies and Belgium yeasts. The taste is fruity up front with lemon and pears and then transitions into a rather hoppy, bitter finish for a Tripel. The Belgium yeasts are somewhat present but not overly done. Well balanced and fresh tasting. Active carbonation and body is light to moderate. The finish kind of pops you with hops. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours a very hazy, deep bold with some lacing, soapy white head. Nose has a lot of tropical fruit, guava, pineapple, honey, candy sugar, yeasty, some pear, a little melon. Flavor follows right along, loads of fruit, melon, guava, pineapple, quite yeasty, almost a bit chalky, some pear, some candy, a little bubblegum, some lemon, some orange. I didnít get a ton of hop. Perhaps a little limey character from the Motueka. Full bodied, peppery, chalky finish. Liked this. I would get more of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a very hazy yellow with a decent head and some nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is peppercorn, some flowers, and plenty of honey. Itís got a little fruit and spice as well.
The flavor is pear and candied fruit. Itís got peppercorn and lavender with a mild bitterness. Overall itís got more sweetness than I would care for in the style, but itís certainly got a flavor profile suited to a stylistically appropriate and enjoyable Tripel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml into a tulip, huge thanks to Max! Pours a clear dark amber with a few fingers of wispy white foam. Nose is wheat, light floral hops, yeast esters of banana and clove. Almost smells a bit sour/tangy. Similar taste, fruity with a solid black pepper back bone with a little caramel. Lingering coriander and some booze warmth. Finishes crackery and dry, refreshing and delicious. Overall a solid tripel, a style that I rarely drink.
