Tap at the Local Taphouse (Melbourne). Not pretty, but very tasty. Aroma has apple, bubblegum, caramel, and spice. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long lasting. Palate is silky, with a medium-to-full body, and a dry finish. Dark yellow, with a frothy white head.

Bottle shared by someone at my table for the grand tasting. Thanks. Nice hazy blond pour. The flavor and aroma were not too strong, but it was still very pleasant. Mildly sweet, somewhat thicker mouthfeel, but still with refreshing aspects of a belgian blond.

Draught fresh from the keg. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Straight from the pour the spicy, fruity aromatics of this beer teases me enough that I give in without any hesitation to take a sip. More of that goodness I like in a Tripel...fruit, spice, banana, bread and a touch of alcohol, that provides warmth in the mouthfeel. It’s true to the style, and once again Murray’s have added another tick to their repertoire.

...bottle. Poured a hazy golden orange, with a fluffy white head that lasted, with lacing. On the nose were orange notes, hints of vanilla and fruit, as well as some spicyness and candy. Flavors were complex, being fruity, spicy as well as malty. ALcohol was hidden well, with only a hint of it in the creamy finish. Heavy body, nice carbonation. They did a great job on this, and I wish I would have tried this brewery sooner. Great beer.
