Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light spice and a bit of alcohol. Touch of ginger. Nose muted. Very dry. A bit boozy. Pepper as it warms.

I can smell the honey, but the taste is too subtle for me to pick up either that or the ginger. Very light flavor in general.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body. The nice aroma was candy and malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of crystal malt Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel Malts, Belgium yeasts, and bread. Medium amber hue with a small head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitterness. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Overall a good tripel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Honey, malty, bready, Strong honey flavor with some malty, floral, alcohol also. Normally, I probably wouldn’t go for a tripel with a big honey component. But this is a good tripel in its own right, and the honey complements it nicely.

Not bad at all it has a sweet start then hits you with that tripel yeast... All and all I’m happy would tell friends to buy it at $7.50 a bottle...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma is some fruity, yeasty esters with a nice sweet honey. Flavor is is again a nice yeasty fruit with sweet honey to follow. Leaves a nice earthyness on the tounge. This beer is not a one trick pony with just the honey. It’s a decent triple with a nice honey backbone.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Liz. Pours dark ruddy copper with a transient beige head. Aroma has ginger, yeast/spice, and a touch of sweet. Med body. Flavor has honey, but it’s slightly earthy, Belgian yeasty, and definitely ginger. I think I’d like more earth and less honey, but it’s a good drink.
