4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-Purchased at a Binny’s Location in the Chicago Suburbs. Pours slightly hazy lite orange with a nice full soapy white head with ghostly lacing. Nose is super awesome-lots of funky, yeasty, musty, slightly phenolic, slight barnyard thing going on. Very nice. Flavors really focus on the yeast quality here, lots of barnyard, musty quality almost like a saison mixed with a tripel. Saison Dupont comes to mind when drinking this. Finish has some dried candy fruits, light alcohol and slightly astringent estery flavors. Some husky quality as well, but more in a earthy way than say a pilsner. Great brew as consistent with all the other beers i have had from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of citrus and hops, with subtle notes of flowers and yeast. Sweetish and citric flavour of hops and citrus fruits, with some funky and salty notes - more like Saison than a Tripel. Acidic aftertaste. High carbonation. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, light golden with some floating sediment. Fluffy white head. Fruity, floral, estery aroma. Light barnyard in the long nose. Sweet citric flavour, yeasty with creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Rather funky for a tripel but quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 8.8%. Quite citric aroma, and also quite funky. Hazy golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is sweetish and citric with a faint hint of marazipan and phenols. Spicy notes, coriander or whatever. A bit strange and not very tripel-y, but refreshing and works well enough for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft 7 oz pour at the Logsdon Barrel House. Pours a clear golden yellow with a ton of foam head and lacing. Big belgian yeast consistent aroma. Flavor is really dry, mild spice throughout. Soft fruit reminder late. Pretty good tripel. It’s been fun getting to know this side of the brewer. Enjoyed this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Head is initially large, creamy, rocky, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain / cracker), moderately hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, dough), with notes of honey, banana taffy, coriander, green peppercorn, plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
The slick, flimsy mouthfeel is the least enjoyable part, and the slightly saccharine sweetness and somewhat artificial nose don’t help. There are some very nice things in the nose, it’s just a shame they’re offset by some less desirable things...partly due to obvious added spices (a good tripel has absolutely no need of them, and they usually detract instead of help), but perhaps also caused by fermentation issues (plastic and taffy). Could be a lot worse, but certainly hoped for better. The appearance is fantastic, though...big creamy-lumpy head that lasts all day, along with a hazy yeast-filled body. Just like a good Belgian beer should look.
