bottle. Pours golden, clear, pillowy white head. Aroma of citrus, banana, yeast, pepper. Taste has sweet honey, fruits and citrus, spice, light booze that doesn’t overpower. A very nice tripel.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Straw color body, medium snow white head with very decent retention, lots of carbonation. Aroma is yeasty, good dose of herbal hops, freshly cut grass, pear, apple cider, spices. Very Belgian. The first wave is dominated by a good dose of yeast, followed by a second one of bitter hops, high grade hops, just the right amount of sweetness to not disturb you from enjoying the yeast-hops mix, spicy, a hint of lemon zest and not even a hint of the 9% alcohol. One of the best trippels I ever had.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at the LCBO tasted in a Trappist chalice. Pours clear and golden with a ample but short lived head. Has the sweet carmel flavours of a Belgian triple but is light and smooth. Easy to drink but not profound.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden cloudiness, almost a little bit of amber. Head dies pretty quickly, as with many tripels. Good carbonation level. Palate between medium Smells floral hops. Taste has bitter notes, floral notes, a little citrus zest in there. It’s good but not worth the $10 price tag at lcbo when you could buy a westmalle tripel for $3. 600 ml bottle. In any case I’m not the only one who thinks so as the shelves aren’t emptying very quickly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
February 4, 2011. 600ml bottle shared by garthicus. Hazy gold with a smallish creamy/frothy white head. Interesting aroma - grassy bitterness, pear sweetness, moderate alcohol - very pleasing, nice yeast. Taste follows - a nice floral trippel, plenty of apple and pear, restrained alcohol, soft yeast, well balanced, if a touch on the sweet side - very very fruity. Soft and thick mouthfeel, average carbonation, sweet thick malt up front, with increasing bitterness in the finish, like biting an appleseed. Solid - maybe even a hint sharp and peppery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle marked 9%. Pours a murky yellow with plenty of head. Aromas of yeasty belgian spice, citrus. Taste is quite sharp, not much sweetness in there, and the alcohol is totally hidden. Hard to find the lemon until it warms up a bit. Pleasant, but a little straightforward, really.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big golden pour, big white head.
Thick aroma of tropical fruits, big yeasty breads, and quite a bit of honey.
Flavor is spicy, more light fruits, and more bread. Candi sugar seems quite upfront in the finish with a light astringency. Light peppery, zesty finish and the carb was quite low.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours golden honey with a slight brown tinge; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: honey, coriander, grassy-note, slight alcohol, egg-bun (sweet-bread), and slight lemon zest. The taste is light sweetness that has a short tart finish; notes of: lemon-zest, mead (alcohol/honey), coriander, sweet grain, and slight floral quality. The palate is light-medium bodied with light carbonation; the finish is watery and slightly metallic. Overall, this was a disappointment from this brewery and dismal triple.
