3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-16-13-
Poured from growler into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange –copper color with a tiny bubbly head. The head fades very fast leveling only wisps of foam on the top of the brew
Smell – The aroma is of a bready and yeasty base mixed with lots of lighter fruit aromas of orange and quite a bit of banana. With these aromas is a sweet bubblegum smell as well as a nice spice aroma giving, when mixed with the rest, a sweet and delicious aroma overall.
Taste –The taste begins with a bready and slightly more dry flavor upfront. With these flavors is a large presence of yeast and a little bit of lighter fruit flavors. As the taste advances it sweetens with the fruit flavors of pear, apple and orange growing stronger. While this occurs some clove and pepper comes to the tongue as well with an alcohol taste which begins to creep into the taste. The alcohol gets stronger and stronger to the end where it is joined by a bit of a grapefruit hop and some herbal hop flavors to leave a boozy, slightly burning and lightly hopped triple flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the just thicker side in its creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average to just above average consisting of little prickly bubbles. The body and carbonation are quite nice for the style with it nice complementing the yeasty, fruity, and estery flavors of the brew.
Overall – A little too boozy and burning at the end to be a top notch triple. The flavor profile was rather nice beyond the alcohol flavor though making it a good brew to try at least.

Deep gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet malt and rock candy on the nose. Flavor mirrors aroma with a touch of bitter on the end. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy. Nice beer

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a one finger fizzy white head that slowly faded. The nose is slightly sweet with some light spices, moderate alcohol, and some heavy pale malt. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes in the style, quite a bit of residual sweetness on the finish especially. Fairly heavy alcohol presence on the back end as well. The spicing seems to be fairly well kept in check, but the sweetness is a big turn-off for me. Full bodied and a bit sticky with fizzy carbonation and a warming finish. Doesn’t really do it for me, not that I’m a huge fan of Tripels, but this is just too sweet.
