Lots of citrus and pretty in-your-face for a tripel. Kind of a mash tang finish in here. Pours golden amber with ok head. Some florals, though mash citrus kind of outweighs it. A fair amount of resin. Bottle.

Bomber from Roth’s. Hazy golden in color. Nose is yeasty with a bit of grain. A touch of sweetness as well. Dry and yeasty up front. A little bit of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Dry yeasty, lightly sweet tripel with a slight hint of alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It looked good, and smelled pretty nice, but this one just didn't do it for me. If you want something with a nice kick though, the 9% alcohol / volume will get you.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, Idaho. Pours clear golden with a small white dissipating head (I don’t think I’ve ever seen a filtered tripel before). Aroma consists of bubblegum, wheat crackers, clove, cheese, earth. Taste is spicy clove, boozy. Highly carbonated, simple mouthfeel with none of the creaminess I appreciate in this style. Seems pretty unrefined.
