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!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I purchased the large quart bottle with pop cap. The beer has the expected aggressive white head of the style, but it drops out too fast. The beer has a nice golden yellow color that is cloudy. The taste is too sweet for the style, and not very complex. Hints of light fruit are overpowered by the sugar flavor. Thereís a hint of spiciness, maybe pepper. Thereís not the typical crisp bite of Belgian yeast, but it does break through a little in the after taste. It could be that the beer I drank is too young; this is a bottle conditioned beer. Iíd expect over time for the head to develop and the sweetness to fade.
The beer is not to style, but it is a gentle trippel. A bit too sweet though.

This was an ok tripel. Yeasty with a light appearance. Fruit and citrus on the nose. Dry aftertaste with a nice mouthfeel. Winchell brought this in SLC and brought it back to Lawrence in 2013.

Growler @ Utah Holiday Beer Tasting: Hazy blonde, nice husky straw and fresh hop notes. The flavor is citrusy, nice pale malts and a nice hop and clean fresh aroma. Not as crisp and bitey as a belgian but itís nice.
