At FWIBF. Pour is dark yellow gold and clear. Aroma is more on the Belgian side with sweetness, fruitiness and a little hop character, taste has some spice, fruit with some good citrus taste. A tasty blend of Belgian and IPA. I am a big fan of this beer.

Love this beer. More belgian than IPA. Pours cloudy yellow with large white head. There’s some hops in the background but this is dominated by strong fruit and sweetness. Also some citrus. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter. Mouthfeel is large and formidable.

This is interesting... the sweetness of the Belgian style contrasts well with the bitterness of the IPA. The sweetness shows up first, then the hoppiness comes through on the back end. Pours golden and cloudy with a large head.

Tap. Not much head, very hazy vibrant marigold hue. Lots of tripel notes in the aroma with light fruit notes and spice along with vanilla hints. The bitterness does come in but it’s very grassy and almost gin bitter in some respects. Medium to lighter body with ok carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a deep gold orange with a fluffy white head of foam. The nose is a mix of Belgian yeast, florals, and light pine. The flavor leans a little more towards the Belgian side with nice yeast and slight citrus notes. The hops are there too adding in a little pine and some grass. Light to medium body with higher than average carbonation and a medium finish. Definitely not bad but I would like just a bit more hop presence from something called “Hop God”.

Tasted at 2nd East Nash Beer Fest. Pale orange in color. Hazy. Loads of fruit. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Soapy. Some detergent. Loads of hops. The tripel characteristics aren’t shining through on the flavor profile for me. Good beer though.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ brewpub. Golden appearance with a white head. Upfront fruity esters in the nose with notes of banana, citrus fruits, and apricot. A little boozy, fruit forward, a little piney hoppy flavor. Lots of citrus fruits which is nice but the booze is a little out of control. The barrel aged version has a more mellow alcohol note.

I didn’t really get much tripel, just a lot of IPA. crisp and citrusy, lightly smokey, and insanely easy to drink. Dry, slightly woody finish. Sampled at the 2012 Eat Nashville Beer Festival.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of earthy hoppiness, like onion and gardens. Flavor had a great floral Belgian quality that worked well with the stew-like hops. Balanced, beautiful tasting. Sampled at the second annual East Nashville Beerfest.
