4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Earthy yeast... Really ester-y. Oak, and light spice and tartness. Flavor: Tart, with lingering malt sweetness. Maybe a little too sweet. Earthy, spicy, fruity flavors. Oak/vanilla flavor is pretty subtle in the flavor. Warming.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Straw in color, very hazy, light to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Bready nose, soft pale fruit, very minor floral aspects.   On the tongue its not as Tripel like as one would think.   Seems like a Belgian, but not terribly floral.   Has a musty woody aspect to it, slightly vinous in the chardonay sense.   Backside has a soft fruity breadiness to it.   As it warms, I do sense a slight Brett aspect.   Some honey comes out as well not that it has warmed up.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is oakish, some white wine, minor pale fruit, and soft yeasty breadiness.   Its like your average American Tripel, but with a twist.   Enjoyable, even if a little simple despite the effort to dress it up.   More enjoyable than most American examples.   Thanks Dallas for the bottle!

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at a tasting at James’ place. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Nice brett notes on the nose, soft acid and toast. A touch of vegetal and cat pee aromas as well. Sweet, then turns remarkably nasty. Gag inducing, had to suppress the urge to vomit. Really off flavors here. Just vile. Ugh. Dumped it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Bayou’s Wild and Sour ale tasting. This is a beer that changes dramatically with age. This had a nice spice/ coriander flavor to it. There was pilsner malt notes throughout as well. This is a very interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Redrock reve. 750ml bottle thanks to Derek for bringing this by...
Pours a hazy somewhat golden apricot orange hue and topped with a semi- fluffy vivid white head... Aroma of soft semi-funked horse blanket, a touch of port, and a softer sense if sweetness contributed by the base tripel... Citrus fruit and semi-sweet to start. Spritzy mouthfeel which takes away from the base beer. Finishes somewhat dry with a citrusy vanila fruit essence. Lighter bodied which also assists in its drinkability. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Ben, shared with others! Poured a cloudy pale gold with an amber hue and a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of funk with a horse blanket note supported by sweet grains and a nice port note. Flavor was similar with funk and sweet grains n a great port note at the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the SLC Holiday Tasting. Clear yellow pour with a big head. Aroma is light citrus, yeast, fruit and funk. Flavor is mildly sour and funky, a little wood and malt. Flavor is light sourness and funk, but not much else. Okay, but should have been more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear deep gold with near white head. The aroma is a mix of tart green apples, pears, some berry sweetness, mild funk and some tartness rounding things out. The taste has full notes of apples, pears, apricots and some sweet berries mixing with lesser amounts of tartness and funk hovering around over the top of the fruitiness. Tasty stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another Utah bottle from Wasatch.
Pours a light bubbly golden amber with a frothy white head that recedes to a thin creamy cap, leaving no lacing.
Aroma is a mixture of light sweet fruits - pears and green apples - and the spicy oak character. Light pale malts and a hint of lemon zest as well.
The taste seems to have a more tart character than the aroma with the tart apples really coming out with a touch of hay and spices. The sweet malt backbone is there but light and the finish is oaky.
The mouthfeel is light bodied and very effervescent. The finish is dry and almost white wine-like.
A very drinkable tripel where the oak adds a layer of complexity and gives the beer a more vinous character. Tasty.
