3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma has a strong clove presence, with some hints of banana and wet grass. Mouthfeel is crisp and a bit sweet throughout, with a bitter and somewhat sour finish. There are a lot of strong flavors going on here, including a potent Belgian skunkiness, but I am just not a big fan of any of them.

Poured from a 22. Aroma and first taste are pretty much your standard Tripel. Has a nice banana/clove sweet flavor to it. Mouth feel is the typical Triple cream. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Gold color, clear beer. Too much banana and a bit too sweet but good lighter body. Its a traditionally sweet American take on a Trippel.

Nice hazy pale color and foamy head. On the nose you can pick up pilsner malt with hints of biscuit. To taste you pick up the spices, wheat and coriander. Nice on the palate long after first taste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear pale gold under a thin white cap. Nose has some big notes of pilsner malt biscuitiness with a little tone of white grapes and light Belgian fruit esters. Big flavor of pear and clementine and light hay notes meet with a doughy Belgian ester flavor and a small but noticeable and delightful floral tone. Wonderful and complex.

Tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is candy sweet with honey and Belgian candi sugar over a fruity Belgian Tripel yeastiness. The flavor is sweet with candi sugar and lots of esters from the yeast. Pretty good punch of alcohol on the finish. Lingering crackery malt and sweetness. Mouthfeel is full bodied and clingy with fizzy carbonation. Noticeable heat on the finish. Pretty nice Tripel, well done.
