3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
December 2011. From a corked bottle. Pours amber/orange with a white head. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, spice with a long finish. Good beer even thogh this is not your traditional trippel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is bright with lemon and grapefruit with some dry grain.
The taste is disjointed at the beginning then moves to lemon bitterness, alcohol heat and grain.
The texture is crisp with a little fizz.
An enjoyable ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Disappointingly small head. (That’s what she said!) Tasty but nowhere near as complex as the best tripels.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange amber with a rocky head and a lace curtain. The taste is malt, toffee, candied citrus, and waffles, growning through the palate to a fizzy lightly bittered alcohol finish. A solid brew, perhaps not strong enough to match the abv, but good for sipping none the less. Recommended.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is not a traditional tripel. I have not been impressed with anything from this brewing company, and I hope the final wine barrel aged bottle does me good. This one is light, crisp, and does not taste like a tripel. It is, as it warms up, adding more complexity... but this is nothing to write home about. There are some nice floral aromas going on toward the back of the palate, but I expect a tripel to be a little more thick and have a better mouthfeel. Too many bubbles here.

Bottle. Thanks to Wombata for bringing this from NZ. From notes. Aroma is light and floral and estery with some sugar. Initial flavors of peaches and pear drops / Mid has more peach, some spice, and burnt sugar / Final includes caramel, chocolate, and bitter coffee. Good stuff

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours cloudy blonde with a modest white head and an acetone-tinged fruit aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt and candi sugar flavor with a chocolate aftertaste. Less fruity than a typical Belgian tripel, yet pretty tasty.
