3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with a white head. Nose is sweet, smells like someone dumped a handful of coriander in it. Easy on the palate, dried fruits, big yeast notes, and more spice.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A boring sugar spicy strong Belgian blond ale.
How: Bottle 22oz. Not sure the age, I don’t even remember buying this, probably many months old.
The look: Partly cloudy blond body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is phenolic, banana peels, plastic, Neo Citran™. Taste is sugary crisp cereals, dried bananas, some plastic, sweet orange peels, excessive candi sugar presence, white pepper, a bit of coriander, timid leafy-tobacco hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. The intrinsic spiciness of the beer helps drinkability. Not a bad beer despite the chemical/plastic aroma-flavor, mainly because it is not even tasty enough to be bad, this is just a very very very boring beer. Nothing good here but I drank the full bomber anyway, there’s no point in cutting down on my drinking and getting in shape, I mean, I now have exactly the same number of Tour de France wins as Lance Armstrong.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: honey, orange, bubblegum, banana, cloves. Appearance: hazy gold, white head dissipated quickly to ring. Irregular lacing. Taste: sweet malty start followed quickly by floral but somewhat harsh hop bitterness. Some earthy undertones. Palate: moderate carb, medium body, dryish finish, but lingering (slightly unpleasant) bitterness. Overall: alcohol well-hidden, and nice enough - I would not object to drinking this again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yeasty grassy citrus and spiced aromas. Your basic hazy yellow appearance. Soft sweetness, short bitter burst, fairly alcoholic. Lighter body, not very zesty either. Alright but not a great triple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this beer many times due to availability and price appeal. Medium amber color with a light head. Aroma smells of orange or lemon zest with a less fruity taste. Taste resembles a hoppy taste with cherry caramel flavor. Would recommend

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours yellow with a white head. Great lacing. Aroma has yeast with straw and sweet fruit. Taste is of sweet fruits (lemon, banana, melon) with some breadiness. Terrifically fresh. Finishes long and sweet with some sourness and alcohol. Very nice effort in the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with very little head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but I get a slight bit of sweetness. Taste is sweet with a little bit of citrus in it. OK, but not my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, pours a golden color with a medium white head with hardly any lacing. Smells of sweet malt and a mild Belgian yeast. Not much flavor for a tripel. I tasted light clove and banana notes. Mouthfeel was pretty light with mild carbonation and a semi dry finish. All this beer did for me is give me a good buzz not much else. Look elsewhere if you want a quality Tripel.

Not a typical trippel, no spicy aroma or flavor. It was like a hefeweizen with more body. it was a good beer even thou I disagree with the labeled style
