   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20

Bottle from the brewery store. Pours a hazy murky deep golden color with a decent sized tightly bubbled off white that shows minimal retention. Aromas of sweet bread, light fruit and spicy yeasty esters. The flavor is fruity and sweet with hints of bread and spice and yeast. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Taste’s pretty good, hides the abv well, but nothing horribly exciting here, a bit light on the Belgian character.

had this on draft, first as just a sample which wasn’t bad, then got a full pour and found it much too sugary without having a good beer/malt backbone. Sweet in and of itself is not a bad thing, but you need beer behind (or in front) of the sugar.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a golden honey color with a thin white cap. Aroma is sweet candied fruits with a whiff of alcohol. More candied fruit in the flavor, pears in particular. At bit of Belgian spice. Full palate with a nice warmth to it. I ordered this for "desert" and it was fitting for that. Well done.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a red/orange with a clear small white head. Aroma of booze and fruits. Flavor of light fruits and plenty of Belgian malt. Very strong in the palate, bordering (and passing at times) overpowering. Not sure what other people were able to gleam from this, but this was a very mediocre triple and I would avoid this alcohol bomb. 6/4/6/3/11 [3.0/5]

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
AirForceHops (3515) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2011
Draft @ brew pub. Almost clear amber color. Small white head, laced the snifter real well. Nose of fruit and Belgian spice. Taste is real fruity with noticeable alcohol. The high ABV over powers the flavor that is there. Would be best to get a 22 oz. bottle to age.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Another solid offering at the Brewpub! The pour was much darker and redder than a standard trip...with a smallish head. Honestly, I didn’t take much note of the aroma (oh well). This was a solid, if unspectacular offering. It was a good balance of typical sweet fruity trippelness with a moderate level of bitternesss. Not a pronounced yeastiness, nor anythinhg else to make it exceptionally notable, but sometimes just making a good example of a good style absent of any flaws is more than enough. Well done.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Jblauvs (1345) - Chester, Vermont, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Goldne pour with a Fluffy white head. Aroma is Candi sugars and Nectar fruits, Pear and some Peach. Mouthfeel is light to medium , somewhat creamy. A bit boozy, but great banana, nectar fruit esters with some subdued yeastiness and great warmth and depth of malt. Fantastic stuff, reminiscent of Struise Tsjeeses.
