3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that receded down to a large puddle and small collar with good spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild of a light bread malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of banana, apple, citrus (lemon) and a bit of coriander.
The taste mildly sweet and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus and a slight fruity ester early on, becoming slightly bitter with a hint of banana, a pinch of spice and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with a creamy spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Tripel with a good balance of flavors...

Golden with lots of bubbles, long lasting head, sweet funky belgian nose, sweet a little dry hint of hops, pleasant mouthfeel. Great Trippel, I just dislike this style.

12 oz bottle --> pint glass. 3+ fingers slinky head. Semi cloudy amber. Sugary baked apples on the nose. Dominant notes are equally sour and bitter, followed by subtle hints of white grapes. Not too boozy. Decent, it'll do in a pinch.

Bottom line, up front...this is a good beer. It's just not a good trippel. From a bottle. An aroma of coriander with a hint of Belgian yeast. Taste is much the same with little remaining on the palate. At 7.8, this beer is not strong enough to be compared with some of the better trippels such as Golden Monkey.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12. Has a typical Belgium aroma to it. Flavor is creamy and almost bubble-gum or papaya taffy like. The coriander adds an interesting depth and slight tartness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear amber with a sudsy off-white 1.5 finger head that leaves a lot of lacing. Coriander and funky belgian yeast are very forward in the aroma, along with toffee and grains. Taste is honey, grassy hops, hint of funk, sweet malts and coriander. Medium bodied and has a spiciness on the tongue. Not bad tripel.

This is a great trippel! It’s awesome that a large brewery can put out a beer like this. Creamy head and a nice gold pour. Good balance. Just enough sweet and funk. A touch of coriander.
