pours light amber with a volcano of a white head. aroma is corriander, yeast, and seedless grapes. flavors of yeast , light pepper, and a milky caramel. very clingy mouthfeel. and the sweetness lingers in this one. it is still a good beer. just a bit outside what i look for.

Smells of the county fair: bubble gum and hay. Intriguing copper color; lacks a proper head. Upon first long pull, all preconceptions are blown out the window. Citrus and caramel explosion with a perfect carbonation complement. Smooth finish leaves you pondering when your next taste of this craft will be. A must try for all new Trippel explorers!

bottle from tannertavernboys. "flat" aroma if that makes sense, unlike a flat body. earthy and yeasty and musty. tingly caramel alcohol flavor but the tingle is not from carbonation; it seems to come from a citrusy spice. good beer, good tripel, but just typical for a belgian style brew.

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. GETS BETTER AS IT WARMS. NICE CARAMEL AFTERTASTE AND VERY SMOOTH GOING DOWN. CANíT WAIT TO GET MORE.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Honestly, I donít completely understand why this beer has such a good rating. The best thing that I can say about it is that it is fairly true to style, but, in my opinion, itís not that good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grapevine Market- Austin, Tx - 12oz bottle. Pours a slighlty murky, medium golden with a faint, but sticky white head, good subtle bubble action. Aroma is not overly apparant, pick up a faint fish odor, some cotton candy and fresh lake water. Flavor has a little bit of bubble gum, some candied sugar and a bit of alcohol. Turns slighlty cloying near the end. Mouthfeel is sticky and thick, which is nice. Overall, decent, but not one for the ages.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden straw-yellow with just a little skim of white head. Aromas of musky yeastiness, sweet grassy-mellon hops, bubblegum, clove and lemon zest. Lots of interesting things going on, with no one aroma hogging the attention. Fresh and spring-clean. Flavors of nice soft lemony maltiness. Lingering tangy yeast. Surprisingly light on the palate. Hides the 8% ABV very well.
