3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a large rocky white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with lots of coriander. Strong coriander flavor with some banana and a somewhat dry, bitter finish. More like a Belgian Wit than a tripel, but not bad.

Poured this bottle to celebrate the Redskins triumphant victory and 4th quarter comeback over the Cowboys on monday night football. Pours a golden orange with not much of a head. Aroma is sweet apple, cinnamon and freshly cooked krispy kream donuts. Taste is sweet with spice and yeast. Nice tasting beer. Complex finish.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light Brown, small short off white head. Bursting with hops and a touch of sweetness and floral. Medium bodied with a watery text ture and light carbonation. Tastes a little too much of alcohol, but the hops antaste last through the whole drink. Touch of vanillia with a hops finish.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very disappointed by this thin, lifeless version of the Belgian classic. A beer must have more than a high alcohol content to be good, and it must be a gem to have Belgian on the label. I noticed no big body and certainly no rich mouth feel. Maybe it would have gotten better with age.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
You can discern the Belgian ale yeast on the nose and it permeates a good sense of it’s style. Some subtle hints at vanilla and malty sweetness though not overt. A touch too much alcohol is prevalently and the body is more medium than big. Overall a pretty darm good attempt. Keep geting better RHBC!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden mildly effervescent amber with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet and floral, yeasty as well with a touch of hops. Taste is not nearly as bad as I expected. Very dry with some floral essences and very little sweetness. Not very elegant, but surprisngly drinkable. A tripel you don’t feel bad about drinking out of the bottle. Interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold, orange body with a very small white head. Aroma includes vanilla, hops, and touches of alcohol and honey. Initial taste is not sweet, instead a bit yeasty with some spices present just a tiny hint of vanilla. As claimed in the deScription nice dry finish with a touch of sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-pours golden orange with a small whtie head. sweet, candy sugar, alcoholic, estery, lemon aromas with some hop notes entangled in there as well. sweet flavors wit notes of honey, grassy hops, and a bright yeast character. As big of a beer this is, the alcohol was not that overbearing. Not bad for an american trippel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Super floral aroma. Pours a clear amber with a thin whitish head. Citrus and honey come through in the flavor. Although this beer is 10% ABV, there was no alcohol burn to speak of. Very enjoyable.
