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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a rich amber with slight reddish caramel hues. Aroma is ripe fruits/grapes, nice belgian yeasty scent. Taste is ripe fruit, as the beer warmed the honey became more apparent, perhaps some ginger in the aftertaste. Nice finish, alcohol slightly detectable. A very nice tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Haze. Deep amber-brown, way darker than I wouldve expected for the style. Thin, steady oily head. Sweet and big, with some thick honey and ginger notes. Sort of like an imperial honey beer. Sweet, sugary, heavy. Might have benefited from more hops, which could create more depth. Some mellow malt tones. OK, but a little tame and boring too. Tripels are already too sweet most times, this just creates an overload.

Bottle shared by Tampa RB group. Nose is full of sweet honey and some ginger. Yeasty and spicy. Taste follows with plenty of sweet and tasty honey and a lemony ginger follow-up. Good stuff and drinkable as hell.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to PaulUnwin for the share on this one. Pours a honey yellow color with a white head. Nose is honey, slight peppery yeast, and lots of sweet malt. Flavor is similar with lots of honey, sweet malt, and some peppery yeast. Medium in body and syrupy, yet sweet and nice.

This great beer had and awesome cloudy orange hue to it. The scents were light for a tripel, but still quite mellow and spicy. Lots of clove and hops in this one, and the touch of ginger is very nice as well. Different, but great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grains, spice and a noticeable amount of honey in the aroma. The flavor is fruity/raspberry/cherry, with an underlying sweetness and spiciness. Although initially it tasted like there was a hint of vegetables, thankfully there wasn’t. This was interesting, it deviated considerably from a normal tripel to the point where the normal style characteristics were underlying in the flavor. Decent ale overall, interesting.

Bottle. Dark. Lear amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel and white pepper. Taste is more bitter than your average tripel. Tasty enough.
