2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Doug. Orange in color with white foam. Sweet caramel, simple syrup, and honey. Kind of sticky and sweet. Really heavy oxidation such as cardboard. Tastes like grape juice and apple, along with all the syrupy, goopy malts. A lot of caramel and cardboard bitterness.

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. Can’t drink this. Might’ve been better fresh.

Poured a golden, straw, hazy color with two fingers of rocky white head. Some decent bubble steams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good-looking layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled Belgian cloves, banana, Noble hops, sour fruit, caramel, candied sugar, green apple, green grape, light plum, spoiled milk and some lingering booziness. (Smell - 3.75)
Tasted similar to the nose, maybe slightly better. Got Noble hops, candied sugar, slightly spicy Belgian cloves, banana chips, green apple, slight mint, caramel, honey and grassy notes. (Taste - 3.75)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, acidic finish. (Feel - 3.75)
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 I’ve 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 you’ve had many tripels, you’ve 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.
