3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey color with white head, nose of spices and light fruit, cherries, banana. Light body with good amount of carbonation. Tangy from the start, dry, vinous characteristics, slight fruity sweetness. Balanced and delicious.

Drinking from a red solo cup due to current kitchen remodel. Aroma is typical of a triple. Banana esters. Flavour is more on the sour side, delicious! Dieu du ciel! Really liked it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Bottle. Golden pour, with a foamy white head and decent retention. Tastes bitter, feijoa (which apparently I hate), way too tart, and dried fruit. Obviously I’m not a fan of this brew, although I highly appreciate New Belgium thinking outside the box and trying something new. It’s just not for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy pearlescent orange. Smells of soap slight smoke and caramelized malt. So sweet and fragrant like a wine. The taste is so overwhelming only at the end do the flavors start to sort themselves out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with diminishing creamy off white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are strang for a triple, some sweet malt backbone with tropical fruits abound then wine like farmhouse yeasts, alcohol well hidden. Taste was dominated by bitter mango, orange, cherry, hibacious then barnyard funky yeasts. Alcohol not noticeable with slightly triple malt backbone. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting bitter fruity yeasty finish. Triple not, fruit sour brew yes, something amiss here.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Deep amber/yellow. Heavy foam on pour fades to a thin layer. Odd sort of metallic funk nose (which, I just realized, I seem to get from other Lips of Faith beers). Tastes of yeast, floral (specifically hibiscus), passionfruit. Almost tropical in its qualities.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light aroma of grain and dry apple. Other sort of strangeness to the fruit quality. Copper colored and clear with light head and good lacing. Taste is tart fruit with hibiscus tea leading to honey flavors. Weird but interesting and well made tripel. Definitely cranberry aspects to flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Pours a clear auburn gold with minimal white fizz. Nice sweet tart grainy aroma with Belgian funkiness. The flavor is very smooth grain with a light hearted Belgian yeast with an increasing unique tartness. The carbonation makes it sparkling with a sweeter nature than what it really has. Somewhat light bodied but strong and slightly warming, some apple and strawberry. The flowery hibiscus lingers with the fruit creating a very complex finish that is as lightly muddied and crazy as seemingly simple. Very good brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: light amber pour with a smallish white head. Aroma is perfumey with tart fruit and some light bubblegum end notes. Flavor is sweet/tart with apricot and raspberry fruitiness, followed by some woodiness and a little yeasty bubblegum. A bit odd on flavor where the tripel background does not mesh well with the tart fruit. I probably will not seek this beer out.
