   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
ClarkVV (3892) - 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.
Wasn’t 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).

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.

Aroma of spice, clove and coriander. Lasting creamy white head with a pale gold color. Taste of spice and banana with a creamy feel and a fruity spicy finish.

Light aroma. Leaves a sweet bitterness on the back of tongue. Belgian ale yeast. Fruity esters.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
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.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
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.

This is a surprisingly authentic tripel full of buttery goodness and Belgian yeast spiciness. Some tripels can be a bit herbal and bitter, but this was brewed with care.

Vcoggins (39) - Cypress, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pours a nice golden copper color with a thick white head. Aroma is yeasty with a lemon zest and spice. Taste is tangy and sweet with coriander spice. Hops are noticeable on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lots of carbonation. Alcohol is not overpowering but noticeable. A decent triple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3315) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle; poured a dull gold color with alot of carbonation streams with a foamy white head. Alot of candy sugar that almost comes off a bit bitter. Not all that sweet or banana/wheat, some spice and not all that boozy. Ok.
