Rich golden color. Constant thin lacing and long-lasting bubbles. Spicy nose. Slight banana/pineapple taste with a slight raisiny booziness underneath. Good mouthfeel... almost a bit dense.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderful sour/fruity notes in the nose. The flavor is a mixture of banana and a dry finish making this beer very accurate to the style

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a fairly light golden color and yields the same colored body with a nice half finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, moderate light somewhat sticky lacing graces the sides of the glass; the aroma is iced pears/apples, a fair amount of honey, a little bit of citrus, a little bit of coriander dosed with a good amount of Belgian yeast, taste is all of the previously mentioned flavors coming through in a floral sort of grainy spicy way; it seems to be fairly easy on the palate and the carbonation is good for the style and for me; overall, I’d say a pretty good Tripel though I’m not a Tripel expert, its still good to me and I’d have again

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not apropos of the style but nevertheless good. Nice spicy and fruit notes, but the beer is a little heavy, and that seems to obstruct the zing I generally get from trippels. Putting that to one side, though, on its own it's quite flavorful. Just don't expect an archetype. B.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 22 oz bottle for $5. My first tripel. Pours a nice-looking hazy gold with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells of some fruits, coriander and a little spice. Not particularly inspiring. Taste is similar but extra sweet from the sugar. It masks the high ABV pretty well and did not linger much. The taste actually reminds me just a little bit of their winter Auld Acquaintance beer. Must be the spice and coriander. The texture is a little too thin for my liking but not bad. Overall a decent beer. I would consider buying one again, but not at that price.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with excellent sweet aroma. Very sweet and the added sugar taste breaks through. Hints of coriander and spice balanced with the citrus flavours. Medium carbonation and a white head. High alcohol content is not obvious from the flavour, which is pleasant.

On tap at the brewpub in Seattle. Golden color with a white head. Syrup flavors with light fruit and spice. Tart finish with hops. A little off and not quite up to the style.
