3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy light amber color with very little head on it. Light nose, I find, with just a bit of the Belgian yeast notes in there. Taste is light and smooth with just a bit of sweetness, and relatively characteristic of the style.

Thanks jwale73 for sharing! Pours a hazy honey color with a loose ring of light tan head. Smell is yeast, fruit and honey. The taste follows the nose with some alcohol and then finishes dry. Medium body, smooth with light carbonation. A nice and tasty sipper.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 5/6/10. Another new one from Mother Earth! Yay!
12oz bottle with a bottled date of 4/10 stamped on the side. Poured into a goblet.
This pours a very murky orange/gold with a thin off-white head on the top. This dissipates to just a ring on the edge. Leaves the lightest of lace on the glass edge. Big scents of fresh-cut pineapple, Belgian yeast, dough, and grass. This smells pretty inviting.
The body is crisp per the style, but not overly so. Mellows out at the end. Some mild tartness at the onset, but this is a fairly bready Tripel. Very smooth flavors. Nothing harsh about this at all. Some light citrus zest in there. Sitting at 9.0% ABV, I thought the alcohol may be a bit more prominent, but it is undetectable in the flavor. This is as drinkable as a 9.0% beer can be. I dig it.

750 from Bruisin Ales. Orange body. But lacks all the aroma and taste of a Tripel. Instead, big bourbon taste dominates. Not sure it works here. Feels a bit unbalanced with high alcohol. Not a mess, and drinkable on a cool night. But overpriced.
