3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy, dark burnt orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind.
Slightly spicy aroma with bready yeast and estery light fruit notes. Some pepper, clove and faint earthy hops followed by apple, pear and booze. Pale malt backbone with hints of bread and biscuit.
Medium bodied with a slight creamy texture and a strong zesty spice presence up front that lingers over the bready yeast, light fruit notes and alcohol into a slightly dry finish. The spices are a bit overpowering with lots of pepper, clove, coriander and possibly some ginger. This takes away from estery fruit sweetness a bit but there’s still some vinous fruit, apple and pear flavor. Strong yeast component with banana and bread character before fishing with strong alcohol sweetness. Not hot per se but lots of alcohol flavor.

Pours clear and pale orange in color with a creamy head. Aroma of cloves, Belgian yeast, citrus juice. Flavor is malty sweet, grapefruit juice, and boozy as it warms. Too malty and sweet IMO. Just OK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a nice looking clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is big on candi sugar with some kiwi fruit and spice. Flavor is at first is a noticeable thickness with some fruitiness but then a big dose of alcohol hits you. Finish is dry but again very heavy and leaves a little burning. There are some positives here like the nice fresh fruit but this was way too thick and syrupy for the style and it does not hide the alcohol well at all.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Slightly sweet aroma, rosy orange color, medium body. High alcohol spoils the trippel taste, too much of an edge to this and an unpleasantly long bitter finish. Good if you’re looking for a buzz, maybe not if you are a trippel fan.

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.
