Smooth, nice yeast. Lace, disapearing head that was small to begin with. Fancy aroma. Good balance, tad of fruit and overall sweetness.Suitably carbonated and some cream in medium mouthfeel. High alcohol but still a good transition to Belgian style. No objections to this. Thanks to Tim (IPFreely).

Orange-gold color. Fruit, bubblegum and clove aroma. Fruit and alcohol flavor; low in hops and malt. Medium body with a sticky aftertaste. Very good.

Pretty heady and lager-ish in appearance. Taste is extermely wheaty. Not bad, it grows on you, and it is slightly better warm. The alcohol does present itself more in the finish, and if it gets too warm it will remind you of a low-quality malt liquor. If itís not drank at the right temperature, it just doesnít cut it.

This beer has promise, but it needs more. Weak yeast and hops are greeted by a faint malt presence. Remarkably unspectacular, though it does show promise with nice hints of fruit and wood in the finish. Keep working guys; yaíll will get it right eventually.

Going to belgium spoiled me for trippels. I know, Iím being snobby, but it just showed that this trippel doesnít pack the punch that some do. Aroma is slightly floral with some malts there. Taste is also floral and fruity, but somewhat thin. Finish is good and leaves you wanting to take another sip. Thatís a good thing! A good beer but could stand to be more daring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color with a snow white head of tiny bubbles. Itís your typical Belgian tripel aroma and flavor, flowery, yeasty, mildly phenolic, touch of alcohol. It might have been typical but it was put together well, it shows nice restraint. Creamy mouthfeel. Tasty!

Thanks to csbosox for sending this. Slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Good and crisp flavor of yeast, citrus and maybe hops. Light to medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable tripel.

cinnamon and banana aroma with a golden cloud appearance. Flavor is dominated by mild hops with a slight alcoholic finish. One of the cheaper Trippels Iíve seen. I wish I could buy this more often.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 (Been years since Iíve had this beer - used to be a big fan - now, not so much )Cloudy golden pour with minimal head - musty aroma with touches of apples and pears - high carbonation is surprisingly soft on the palate - quite floral, but not what you would consider hoppy - spices, apples, vanilla - medium dry finish - very nice - thanks to Crosling for this one.
