3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iíve seen this at stores for awhile. Never considered spending the money for this till BOTW had it marked down to $3.98. Sat in my basement for a 1/2 year then. wow, suprisingly lively still. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Smell is malty and sour. Taste is full and sour. Not a hint of alcohol considering the high ABV.(very warming) A decent Belgian ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the discoíd rack at Heinenís - $3.99. Golden orange with chill haze and ring. (Not my best glass). Spicy herbal hop yeast aroma with some ripe orange underneath. Orange mango sweet fruitiness with drying herbal spicy finish. More importantly, itís not a gooey mess like most American triples. Nicely attenuated to give medium light body and fine carbonation for decently soft mouthfeel. Actually, surprisingly, really fucking good for an American Triple. Wish it was fresher, but I did get it of the discoíd shelf.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber bottle pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is banana and cloves with some yeasty notes. Taste is a banana fruit and light malty sweetness with some hints of clove spice and a spicy hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. A decent brew, but not up to par with the better Belgian tripels. Not recommended.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy orange with significant head. Smells of buttery belgian yeast and honey malt. Tastes of slight lactic tart, bananas, apples. Some spice flavors but definitely sub-electrifying. Still it hides the alcohol very well behind a shimmering veil of yeasty goodness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden color with a touch of haze and a finger of compact white foam. The nose has a nice malt aroma with pear, Granny Smith apples, a light cherry character. Floral hops are present as well. The taste starts with a big maltiness and apples, though it is not as sweet as in the nose. Midway though, the spicy yeast phenols add a sharp twist. Candi sugar and big phenols round out the end.
Overall itís an Okay beer. Iím not really geeked about the whole package. Itís a bit too phenolic; the alcohol is not particularly well hidden and the sweetness didnít meld well with the rest of the flavors.
