4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Not an expert taster, but i smell pear and herbs. Color of slightly watered down bourbon. AMAZING TASTE, smooth, light fruit, almost like a low proof fine liquor after letting sit for a few minutes.

Yeasty aroma. Pours a hazy bright golden with little head. Taste is complex with yeast, malt, banana, clove and coriander notes. A bit sweet on the finish. A really fine specimen of Belgian-style tripel.

A very nice example of a tripel. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with white head. Citrus, clove, and some yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a sweet note.

Murky golden in a tulip, thin head retention, nice quickly-fading lace. Wheat on the nose, not much else. Clove, banana, black pepper, ripe orange.

This ale is medium to full bodied. It is cloudy but otherwise very light in color. The malt taste is rich, but the hops are a little too heavy for the malt, leaving a bitter after taste.

One of the better ’merican tripels I’ve had. Has the classic Belgian yeast aroma with citrus, clove and banana.

Brought a bottle of this back from a trip to Houston. This was great. Huge classic nose, maybe a tad hoppier than others in this style (which is good). Very classic Belgian yeast and flavors with a little more bitterness.
Great beer. That is 2 for 2 with me for Real Ale Brewing!! (Blakkr was fantastic).

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet opening with a bit of a bitter aftertaste you can expect from a high % beer. Not my favorite but a nice beer to rotate in. The banana and clove makes it sweet without over shadowing the flavors.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a small foamy head that lasts. Smells of banana, clove and yeast. Tastes of yeast, light hops and malt with some banana and clove. Light alcohol taste. Nice, clean aftertaste. The yeast really makes this beer. Very nice!
