2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Tasty Beverage (Raleigh).
Poured a hazy orange. Mild aroma with a combination orange/malt tone. Malt and Belgian influence much stronger in the flavor.
Belgians/tripels are not my favorite, which explains the relatively low score, but not bad for what it is.

12oz goblet at Rustico Ballston. Pours a translucent orange gold with some thin, white head. Nose is loaded with candy sugar, pineapple candies, more tropical fruit, some spice, pear brandy. Flavor is sticky sweet, pineapple, jack fruit, brandy, some bread, a little yeast, pears, mild clove. Sticky finish. A bit too much.

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.
