2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750mL bottle, pours a dark murky orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma is oxidized, with stone fruits showing up that are massively oxidized. Flavour is so massively oxidized - so stale on the stone fruits. Canít drink this. Mightíve been better fresh.

A decent Tripel, but nothing too special. (Overall - 3.75)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Right from the pour, I knew this was going to be good. Huge fluffy head, lasts a while too. Buttery, herbal aroma, right on target. One of the better tripels Iíve had in a while, and from the USA to boot! Good all around....

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Nicely spicy and simple but good yeast character. Pretty dry. Carbonation is a little low for a tripel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A tripel. Nothing more, nothing less. If youíve had many tripels, youíve had this before. From large bottle with considerable amounts of sediment.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apple-ish fruit, earthy, lightly sweet aroma. Earthy yeast and sweet malt flavor; a little fruit. Moderate bitterness. Seems really sweet for the style--but not super cloying.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
1 qt, 0.815 oz giant swingtop bottle. The inside of the bottleneck on this has a film of gunk in it...not cool. Pours hazy yellow with a nice white pillowy head with great retention. Aroma is cloying sweet, dough, overripe bananas. Taste is also cloyingly sweet. This is a somewhat old bottle (I donít see a date or vintage, but the price sticker says 2012, so it should still be good, I would think). I didnít give this a high score, but Iím giving it the benefit of the doubt that this is better fresh and not giving it even worse than a 2.2 score. Two year old tripels should still be just fine if brewed right!
