3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a darker amber with a nice Tripel nose on it. Has a decent start of a belgian tripel taste but had a coppery/metallica aftertaste to it and frankly lacked the complex flavor i was expecting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours golden orange with a thin head. The aroma is fruity sweet with some strange spicy notes. The flavor has a honey like sweetness, with fruit, spice and some floral notes. A bit muddled but still drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
BCTWC 09. Hazy deep golden with a thin lasting head- good lace. Aroma is lightly phenolic with some clove- esters are kept in control- light banana and apple, earthy spices all around and a nice fresh bready malt presence. Spices and clove ar emore subdued in the flavor than some other tripels at the fest, but it works well- esters in check and a nice doughy creamy flavro with hints of clove, peppercorn, anise, and cardamon- sweet in the middle with honey adn candi sugar, but dries out nicely in the end.
