2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
To best describe my reaction to the beer, an analogy. My wife and I have an ongoing debate about cilantro. We both love it. But while I feel it should enhance the flavor of the food itís seasoning, she prefers to smother dishes with bushels of the stuff to the point where youíre basically eating a cilantro salad garnished with other stuff. So back to this Trippel.
Now admittedly Belgians are not my favorite style of beer to begin with, but I decided to give this one a whirl since Iím a fan of Fat Tire and wanted to taste their other offerings. The íBelgianyí thing just dominates. While I prefer subtle Belgians, this one is just in your face. Maybe itís the coriander that puts such a brash finish on this. I donít know. But I had a hard time drinking it.
I wonít be too harsh though, because itís obviously a quality brew, just not my cup of tea.

Bottle. Golden with nice carbonation. Sweet nose. Hoppy and full mouth initially but smooth and balanced with just enough fruity flavor and coriander.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old rating. Grainy, some honey, that NB yeast, decently malty and caramel. Reasonably smooth. Decent six pack tripel though not up to Belgian master standards, I suppose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Gold with one finger head. Spice, sweety candy aroma. Spice, flower, a little sweet. Not bad, but of course not up with the Belgian versions.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with big lively carbonation and lacing all over glass. Really floral and spicy aroma that was best part of beer. Flavor was spicy and somewhat earthy hops. Great finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is breads and waft of spiced malt. Appearance is a bright light orange with a one finger head. Taste is breads, candy and spice, with a trace of bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Palate is silky smooth. While not my style of beer this still rates highly.
