Bottle from Crown #19.
Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, sweet malt and small fruity aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
Good drinkable beer that is average for style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with atpayne (thanks!). Poured a medium and clear golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of fruits, light spices, yeast and some candi sugar. Fruity tasting with light spices, citrus and light yeast. I found this one to not be overly sweet like some of the tripels I’ve had of late.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin ring of small-bubbled wispy-white head. Aroma of orange citrus and pale malts with some phenols. Body starts fairly full and viscous with some bready yeasty and sweet malt and honey notes along with a touch of light fruity flavors before a warming finish. Has some decent authenticity but needs more balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a thick hazy gold with a thick lasting white head. Aroma was full of sweet grains with a hint of coriander. Flavor was full of sweet grains as well, really came off as a bit of a one note beer and that one note was a bit overly sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with the middle-of-nowhere Ohio crew, thanks Jeff: Golden hued with a small fizzy head and zip for lacing (not good for tripel). The nose detects apricot, straw and hay, grassy hops, honey, sugar, and it is phenolic. The taste is sweet and sugary with a fruity backbone. Additionally I found some pepper and clove towards the finish. Very average and a touch CLOY.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Abv is listed as 9.7%. Looks decent; a completely transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, clove, and mild banana. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel that’s fairly thin on the palate, but not aversively so. A solid, easy-drinking example of the style.
