3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
600 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. 2010 vintage. BB 27 02 12.
App.: Clear deep golden with some floaties and a nice, off-white foam.
Aroma: Lots of citrus, some earthy coriander, some peppery Saaz-like hops, some resin and pine, floral notes, lemongrass, spicy (ginger-like), some alcohol, restrained yeast notes, hints of esters, nice.
Palate: Medium+ body, fairly sparse effervescence.
Flav.: Quite perfumed and floral, a good deal of citrus, some coriander earthiness, more yeast than the nose, some Saison-esque bitter green herbs, lemongrass, a few yeasty flavours, spicy and peppery, some ginger-like flavours, seems like there is quite a bit of hops in this one, quite nice; a little off-dry with decent bitterness (more than usual for Tripels), and a bready, alcoholic finish.
A nice take on a Tripel that suits my tastes quite well. Quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011-02-20. Lightly hazy golden yellow, small foamy white head. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, sweet pale malt, mild alcohol grows as it warms up. Finishes sweet with mild dry malt overtones. Muted notes of honey and lemon if you look for it. 7+ Pleasant aroma, mild sweet pale malt. 7+ Smooth average plus palate. Very drinkable triple, straightforward and very well balanced, the alcohol is very restrained in comparison to other triples. 2010 Vintage Bottle shared by GregClow

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I nice lemony nose with some saaz hops. Taste is similar with some floral, lemony, zesty flavours as well as a fair bit of hops. Carbonation is perfect and the flavours real come through in the middle. Finish is slightly bitter and even a tiny bit sour. Really nice beer, probably the best out of the few I’ve tried.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good tripel that could also benefit from funkier hop profile. Fine deep hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma really fills the nostrils with freshness of new grass, yeast and pale fruit and a citrus component. Definitely taste the lemony citrus and a fairly ’tight’ noble hop type dryness, under that is pale fruit. some sweet spice. Feel is moderately full with a sticky finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. An unclear, yellow-golden beer with some small floaties. A small white head on top. Sugary, fruity and citrusy nose. Sweet and sugary flavor too, with fruityness and a yeasty touch. Citrusy finish. Warming, full-bodied and effervescent. A beer that I didn’t really understand, it’s too much on the sugary side, but the fruityness is nice and combined with the alcohol it makes a pleasant beer, but it’s not a beer that I’m gonna search the stores to find again. 101015
