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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good, classic tasting Belgian. A little bit like Anderson Valley's Brother David. Pours a nice orange with a thick white head. Not much smell, a little herbs and wheat. Taste is classic, berries and malty, with some booziness. Full bodied. Had in the bottle.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber pour..medium gold color..aroma of clove..spices..and sweetness..decent head retention..medium body..nose is much more complex than the taste which has quite low intensity and depth..not much character..has an odd cidery off taste with some spiciness on finish..not a very memorable offering of a tripel..on the positive the price pt is good and the abv is relatively well masked..

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a murky medium orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white frothy head that reduced down to a thin puddled film, and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was quite mild of a light grain malt and a doughy yeast with notes of banana, bubblegum, citrus (orange) and a hint of coriander.
The taste was moderately sweet and decently malty with a strong candi sugar presence early on, and then became a tad yeasty with hints of banana, orange zest and a fruity yet spicy finish. The flavor stuck around for an average time proceeding the swallow, with the mildly spicy fruitiness fading steadily off the palate.
Mouthfeel was just a hair past light in body with a thin creamy texture and a nice soft carbonation.
Overall this was a tasty but very sweet Tripel, which had a good fruit presence and a light hint of spice. Although it was nothing overly special it did have a good drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy gold with a lasting, creamy head. The aroma is of tangerine, vanilla, spices, and fruit esters. The taste is dominated by light malt and candi sugars up front, followed by citrus-herbal hop notes in the finish. The finish is medium-long, with a medium-full body and medium carbonation. The beer is fairly dry and crisp, as it should be. It also hides the ABV well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gyllengul, lätt beslöjad öl med lätt vitt skum. Doft av jäst, hö och viss alkoholsötma. Jäst, lätt kryddighet och lätt citrus. En helt OK version av en belgisk trippel.
