3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep gold with only a slight haze and a small white head. Aroma of sourdough bread, orange juice, lemon zest, white wine, and cheddar. Tastes of grassy malt, sourdough, pepper, citrus (more spicy than hoppy), chardonnay, earth and hay. Spicier and more bitter than the usual trippel. Finishes with a pleasant peppery and citrus flavor with a sort of earthy peppery bitter hop presence. Medium bodied and easy to drink. I know this beer pretty well from having it on tap all the time, and the bottles don’t let me down. I think I prefer the tap version by a slight margin, but I will likely always keep some of this around the house.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Added some age, it got significantly better. Aroma of sweetness, yet a distinct smokey or burnt characteristic is noticable. Pours a cloudy pale with a nice head. Very silky texture, with a fizzy carbonation that bubbles away. Medium bodied, dominated by sweetness, nice alcohol warming sensation, and a bit of a sour finish.

Slightly hazy golden color. Belgian fruity yeast aroma. Hints of fruit on the palate with a slight toasted malt character. Kind of comes apart a little bit on the finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The beer has a initial citrus taste to it, and a honey aftertaste. As far as color, looks just like honey in a glass. Very smooth. Doesn’t have a strong aroma but it’s sweet and a with a little citrus to it.

12 oz bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a very nice looking murky gold with nice white head, leaves some nice lacing as well. Aroma of nice farmhouse, citrus and light candy sugar. Flavor is very much the same with a light maltiness and faint bitter at the end. Mouth feel is medium body and also has a somewhat creaminess to it, fizzy carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden color beer with a nice head. The aroma was grainy, pepper, citrus, light fruits-almost like sniffing a sack of grains. The taste is the same and is a very light tasting tripel which is perfect for Texas.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Gingerman, Austin TX. Yellow with minimal head. Spicy nose with some fruity hop aromas. Real tripel yeast profile and body, but a touch hot on the alcohol side. Pretty good tripel overall.
