3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 Deep yellow golden hue. Big fluffy foamy white head. Herbal, stinky hop nose. A bit vinous, faintly bretty, crusty bread, yeast, leather, barnyard, spice, honey, light fruit, great mouthfeel/body, finishing with yeast, pepper, and sexy styrafoam...pleasant herbal notes, faint hops. This is a very nice brew, I could drink it all night long I think.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 A fair tripel. However perhps the driest tripel on the planet. More like a saison in many aspects. Pours with a giant foamy montainous white head. HUGE. Awesome. Golden hue. Yeast present. Smells like fresh strawberries and a very dry almost champagne like yeast. Tastes like heineken. I know not a nice thing to say but it does. However I think this is more the hop variety paired with the almost lager like carbonation. Very dry. Tastes like freshcut grass and sap with a mix of hops and fruity tripel yeast. Yeast is on the back of the palate and not the front. Interesting take on the style. Go check it out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Did nothing for me. Pale yellow with white foam. Aroma was yeast, some floral, some fruit. Light bodied. Taste was sweet and spicy but not rewarding at all. Just didn’t care for this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lite straw blonde with a magnificent foamy head that lasts for a solid 20 min. Nice lacing. Aromas of oranges, clear candi sugar, and that great belgian trappist yeast. A wonderful mouthfeel with a super smooth finish. Sweet but not cloying; Strong yet refreshing. An absolute must try for all lovers of tripels.
