4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pacific northwest take on a tripel. Sampled from growler filled at the brewery. More malt-oriented and less carbonated than the typical Belgian tripel, with less zing from Belgian yeast than expected but more citrus than expected. As a beer, B+, as a Belgian tripel, B. That said, very drinkable, and quite good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one sports a hazyish, pale-golden body with a creamy and airy top. Sweet, yeast nose with chardonnay and oaky notes. Smooth cream ale mouthfeel with re-emergence of oaky and chardonnay flavors. Chewy bubblegum finish. A sessionable-tasting Tripel.
