3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honestly bought due to price point/abv combo. Scent is more mineral than I would want with some of the ripe fruits and sweet caramel. Taste shows more bright ripe fruits, quite sweet, not too shabby. Almost a bit adjuncty to be a top tier tripel.

"a pretty unassuming trippel. as the tandem was pretty good, i was looking forward to this, but the aroma, while of the usual stuff, is pretty weak, as is the body for a stronger beer. the flavor was average at best."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber.
Cloudy dark golden with a tight but rapidly dissipating head. Active carbonation, light lacing.
Pale malt in the aroma, as well as some light banana, and some bubblegum.
Flavor is sweet up front, candi sugar, fruit, yeast, followed by hoppy bitterness in the middle, and a sweet finish.
A little too sweet for my liking in a trippel,

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
