4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber with a small head. Aroma is very champagne like. Medium in body with good carbonation. Flavor is very good with nice fruity overtones and a bit of alcohol, though not as much as the abv would predict. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy gold pour with an amber core, a one finger, creamy, soapy bright white head. Aroma is big on berry, tree fruit and banana esters, some toast, cereal, fruity floral notes, a hint of pepper, a hint of clove and light candi sugar-like sweetness. Flavor is cereal, starchy grain, doughy bread, sweet apple, sweet apricot, hay, caramel, fruity floral notes, alcohol, over ripe banana and a hint of citrusy spice. Medium body, syrupy, but slightly chalky and slick entry, light, somewhat blanketing and fairly sharp carbonation and dry, slightly boozy and warm finish. Good stuff, very estery, without being a complete booze bomb, like many of the more flavorful Tripels (especially American) seem to be..

Bottle. Big fruity nose, estery, berries, spice, and alcohol fumes. Hazy dark straw color. Sugary fruit, more berries, the fruit floats around but doesn’t develop into much. Medium body. Full of fruit. Tasty. Nice approximation, but still not a black tulip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of yeast, tart fruits, and some spice. Taste follows suit. Apple type flavors hit particularly in the finish. Decent tripel. Vintage 2014 has 10.5% ABV; extraordinarily well-hidden. I didn’t think this tasted "boozy" at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma evokes bread-like yeast. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt, and light hop note. Predominant tastes are sweet and sour. The aftertaste is of alcohol, but also smooth. Not too typical of a triple, but still pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper color with a small head and some lacing. Aroma is floral, fruity, some spice and hint of booze. Taste of fruits, malt sweetness, banana and spice. Mild bitterness and the finish is a bit sticky. Moderate body, smooth with a bit of a boozy feel. Nice beer but it is a bit short of magical.

bottle to glass. Nose is full of candied apple and cardboard. Taste is perfume and then full of booze. Mostly sweet. I’m not a huge fan.
