4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-5-12-
Served on tap in a snifter
Appearance –Pours a beautiful medium orange- amber color with a light haze and a one half finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to give a nice level of lacing
Smell – The smell is heaviest of yeast and strong notes of a lemon citrus. Mixed with these are some lighter sweet notes of orange and a candied sugar smell.
Taste – The beer starts with some of the sweeter flavors depicted in the nose along with a bready base. The sweetness is largely of a orange taste, but there are hints of candied sugar in there as well. As the taste advances however some of the sweetness fades. Some of the lemon citrus flavors as well as hints of the yeast hit the tongue. The light lemon hop and lemongrass flavor bitter the beer slightly. The orange sweetness is almost completely gone more toward the end, but the candied sugar sweetness gets stronger. At the very end of the taste there is a slight alcohol burn which in overall leaves a rather satisfyingly light warming, sweet, and somewhat sour candy flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that runs the middle of the road. Very appropriate for the style and quite refreshing due to the carbonation, but with the creaminess the taste still really still sinks into the tongue.
Overall – This is a fantastic and wonderful brew. It has a wonderful taste and feel. Well done!!!

The fact that this is called an Abbey Tripel made me expect much, much more from it. If you’ve ever had Blue Moon Belgian White, then you’ve had this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours gold with a nice white head. Grassy, sugary aroma. Pleasant slightly tart taste with a good dose of sugar without being overly sweet. Finishes nice and crisp.

Pours a golden yellow with a big white head. The aroma is filled with Belgian candi sugar and a touch of earthy hops. On tha palate it's really sweet. Not too bad.

Had this at Blind Tiger on 02/13/2013 with Andy and James (I think). Don’t have much in the way of notes - main impressions were that it was Belgiany yeasty and had some wheat flavor, but I was not a huge fan. Not bad, but kind of boring.

Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2013 - Pours hazy yellow orange with a white head. The aroma is very bready, raw dough, rich and malty. It has a medium / full rich body with soft carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, but adds spice and banana. The finish is spicy and has a ton of yeastiness. Okay tripel.
