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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudish orangish reddish brownish. Even has a yellow hue around the edges.Thin to no head with bits of foamy spit.Some light lacing.Mild carbonation.
Aroma is nice with floral,orange,spice and a bigger sweet honey aroma.
Taste is very nice with a good honey taste floral orange some spice blend with a honey sweet nectar the ginger is hard to detect but gives a general spice which lasts long through some of the bittering or finish. There is a nice tang with this on the sides of the cheeks keeping the sublte but noticable sweetness balanced with the spice. There is a good carmel note with the sweetness as well. This is suprisingly very complex and good. For a good honey quality in a beer this is up there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, Vintage 2011, served in tumbler- poured a transparent brownish amber color, lively medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of honey, late summer fruit, and note of dirt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is weakened but it’s made up for it by a ginger/coriander tone, middle has darkened fruit, finish is made of more of the same with some small hints of pepper. Very nicely done- makes for a good companion while I enter in ratings and corrections.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. 2011 Vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is mostly honey with a slight nose of sour green apple. Taste is light sweet. Alcohol, honey and some mixed berries. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, I like this beer. Nothing I would seek out but I’m glad I’m drinking this one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish amber with tons of carbonation. Smells of copper. Taste is very sweet with some cherries and honey and coconut. Minimal bitterness. Nice brew but doesn’t taste like a triple.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh...nice concept but not a great beer. Aroma was decent. Sweet honey and light malt with hints of mud. Pour was disappointingly dark for a tripel. LIght murky brown with a two finger of white head. Taste was average. A tad on the sweet side with honey and caramel providing the main flavors. There is a weird earthiness to this beer that doesn’t belong in a tripel. Very strong and biting carbonation make the beer very refreshing if not very one dimensional. FInish was very weak and didn’t linger.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper amber with a small white head. The aroma is delicious, fresh honey straight off the comb. Body is lighter, tastes like a mead, almost wine flavors as well. Not very carbonated, sweet and smooth but no spiciness of a normal tripel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours amber. Small off white head. Aroma of fuit and spice. Flavor of honey and sweet fruits. Palate is solid. Enjoyed this as a change of pace. It was a well done beer. Enjoyed the honey and appreciated the thickness, My issue would be that it isn’t a great tripel. The sweet component overwhelms the spice. However I enjoyed it and would definitely drink it again.
