   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
ClarkVV (4058) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Draught chalice at Redbones on 11/15/07
Lightly hazed golden with some amber highlights. One finger of dense white head that is very well-retained and laces profusely down the glass.
Wasnít sure what to expect from this mostly American style brewer, was envisioning too much yeast, banana, phenols, etc...but the aroma is fairly reserved, showing off light apricots and candied orange, moderate amounts of vanilla and honey sugars and a tinge of pineapple on the finish. Some alcohol warmth, true to style, dries out the finish. Hops are minimal and show no trace of high alpha acids. A lightly sweaty, cedary almost, note from the yeast adds some Belgian flair. No flaws. Not terribly complex, and not incredibly "Belgian", but well done.
Clean and well-presented are the pale malts, with honey and lightly crisp specialty malts on the finish. Banana is low as is the yeast dullness, while some peach and apricot mix with alcohol esters to give more dryness on the finish. A bit astringent by the end of the glass, on account of the alcohol and malt breadiness, but still enjoyable. No flaws. Moderate carbonation and a fluffy, soft texture (with grainiess on the end).

Smooth and well balanced bitterness with a blend of spice. Overall very good.

VungTauMantis (7) - Washington, USA - APR 25, 2015 does not count
It looked good, and smelled pretty nice, but this one just didn't do it for me. If you want something with a nice kick though, the 9% alcohol / volume will get you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pumpmaster (1252) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2015
22 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $4.99. Not as good for tripel.

poisoneddwarf (1907) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, Idaho. Pours clear golden with a small white dissipating head (I donít think Iíve ever seen a filtered tripel before). Aroma consists of bubblegum, wheat crackers, clove, cheese, earth. Taste is spicy clove, boozy. Highly carbonated, simple mouthfeel with none of the creaminess I appreciate in this style. Seems pretty unrefined.

furthur (354) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Draft sample, head ok, God lace, light golden body. Aroma light fruity. Taste banana and pineapple, honey. A little sweet. Palate light, but nice, carbonation good. Finish is sweet.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Aurelius (4597) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Aroma was at first sort of Brett-witty, and then it turned towards having an artificial grape sort of thing. OK label, bomber. Very clear, pale yellow, with a clingy white head. Tangy, fruity, fermented fruit/winey notes. Decently bittered, warming. Has some complexity, has some brutality. I donít know what it is, but thereís this grape soda thing that keeps cropping up at odd points in the flavor profile and the finish. Medium body. A tanginess that coats the tongue - itís not quite the finish, but itís a little adhesive. Gets cidery as it warms. This has its strengths and flaws, but at $2/bomber on fire sale, this was a slam dunk. Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah. New Yearís Eve Eve 2014.
