3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber pour with substantial head. This beer is a viscous beast of honey, ginger, spicy hops, and belgian yeast. Perhaps a touch cloying if warmed too much. Slightly over-carbonated and a tad harsh on the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2011 Had in a 4 oz sampler. Golden color. Lighter body. Couldnt really taste the honey- very subtle. There a beer from Belgium that is a honey abbey (Barbar) and it blew this away in my opinion. Drinkable.
Rerate update 3/11: Big bottle, Poured a pretty amber honey color. Aroma was subtle with some sweet malt. Taste was medium sweet. Med body, slight fizziness in carbonation. Can still barely taste the honey. Alchohol is somewhat hidden. Yep, still not as good as the Barbar Belgium beer, but decent and worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at Trion in New Haven, IN - Pours amber with a one finger off-white head. It smells of honey (duh) and spicy yeast. The flavor is sweet with dark honey featuring quite prominently along with some malts, yeast, and maybe a hint of fruitiness but itís not coming through as much as many brews in this style. Itís medium bodied, bubbly, and pretty unusual tasting for a tripel. While alright, to me itís not a high end brew worth the premium.

Tap. Clear copper/amber pour with a minimal white head - quickly dissipating. Faint honey and fruit on the nose. Sugar, honey, dark fruit on taste. Mouthfeel was a bit flat and light. Didnít love this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack this beer poured a dark caramel amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was faint sweet honey, light fruits and nut. The flavor was sweet and malty with a faint bitterness and a fairly intense honey and bananabread elementsa and a long bitter honey finish. Medium body. Nice.

This beer actually looks like honey! Light brown, stiff head. Smoky wood/honey aroma is awesome. Neat flavor, a little syrupy. Light hop presence, smooth and lightly sweet. Light alcoholic bite.
