3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. First of all, the bartender called this a "Belgian White", but Indra’s description nails this beer to a "T", so unless someone can prove otherwise, I’m lumping my rating in with the Tripel. As stated by others, this is not cloudy, but crystal clear rich gold with a white head. Has a slight medicinal aroma. Floral at times. The flavor is sweet and malty. I get a bit of pineapple and plenty of coriander. Good lacing. It’s a pretty tasty beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yes, an appropriate glass would make this handsome trippel a higher score. Very sweet but not cloying and pear, apple and toffe notes dominate this brew. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First of all, served at a very cool temperature in standard shaker style pint glass. Definite points off for that. Lightly floral sweetness in the aroma, some white wine/grape, pear, peach and honey. Very slight head atop a clear, medium golden color. Sweetness and fruitiness factor into the flavor prominently as well, with some green apple and grape. Slightly alcoholic tinge and a lightly syrupy mouthfeel, a little cloying. Finishes with the fruity flavors of Welch's Harvest Blend™ juice, faintly flowery and malty.
