3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber/orange color, transparent, light carbonation and an off-white head. Retention is low and lace is clingy. I miss judged my pour and got some large chunks whirling around. Aroma is tart and yeasty and grassy. Flavor is lightly sweet at the start with a dry slightly tart finish. Peppery attributes dominate the character of the taste. A tripel in the Westmalle tradition, but not as thick and intense. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and highly effervescent. Light hop bite. I fail to see any complexity of Pater, but it is an enjoyable version of a tripel.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy amber color with a medium head. Sweet aroma. Malty taste with some banana, but a strong musty character that was a bit much off the deep end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty lightly fruity nose (banana), gold color, sticky head. Nice creamy malt body full of vanilla flavors. Some citrus in the middle, not so bitter or spicy end. Thinish. Ok balance. Consistenly decent for this brewer, though not that special.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden orange brew somewhat cloudy and a nice layer of creamy head.Has a funky sweet yet acrid nose and a little fruity spice.But there was something about the aroma that bugged me,too musty.Flavor was a little like dirty underwear tea.The musk flavor here was a real turnoff.

Bottle bought in Belgium. Fairly yeasty, bland triple. Some spices, but not a lot going on. Pretty good, and the alcohol is well hidden.

Pours with a large off-white head, eliciting a rich aroma. The flavor is classic tripel with a mellow, pleasurable aftertaste.
