3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Cloudy gold color topped by a small creamy white head. Slightly yeasty, citrus malt nose. Hints of wet cardboard. Sweet citrus malt upfront. Notes of yeast, vanilla and lemon peel. Earthy malt with some residual sweetness. The 10% ABV is barely noticeable. This is nice, but lacks the complex spiciness I expect from this style.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Huge fusel alcohol notes in the aroma, soft green apple, sweet maltiness. The flavor is coriander, sweet malts, hot alcohol, fruity alcohol. Meh, I did not Footbalm it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pioneer supermarket on Columbus, UWS. Murky witbier orange with a generous and stable white collar. Nose of leaves, parsley, coriander, slight vomited cocktail, raw almond. That taste too with a slightly vegetal, green leaf and bilious vibe. Heavy-going and dank like a clumsy english attempt from the stillage. Late almond of booze. Not brilliant.

Nice delicious full bodied brew. A very good belgian style. Finding out I can bottle condition these, makes me like them even more.

Nose is Belgian yeast, spice, coriander, lemon. Taste is Belgian yeast, banana ester, spices, on the sweet side, an odd off aftertaste, alcohol at the very end. Thin for a tripel. It's ok, the funky aftertaste and lack of body kill it.

Pours a translucent gold with light head and minimal lacing. Aromas of honey, citrus, and Belgian yeast. Very sweet, with hints of caramel, tangerine, and cinnamon. Pretty decent Belgian beer.

Yellow gold color with some haze from the bottle. Big yeasty nose with some spice. Flavors of bitter orange peel, coriander and alcohol. A bit harsh for a tripel, but still tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with a quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and spices. Taste adds some caramel, roasted malt and bubblegum. Rich mouthfeel with moderate carb. Booze is well hidden. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange amber with a white foamy head. Aroma of clove and banana. Taste is sweet followed by a note of cocoa. Finishes dry and crisp with a lingering cherry and bitterness. The higher A/V cones through a little.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to Brooklyn tulip at Brass Rail in Hoboken. My first New Jersey rate! Pours a murky yellowish orange with a small ring of white head. Aroma of banana, clove, yeast, booze, pears. Flavor follows similarly with banana, clove, spiciness, pear, apple, honey, yeast. Very very sweet and boozy for the style, but a mix sipper. Heavyish mouthfeel with low carbonation. An interesting interpretation of a tripel and a bit on the boozy side but not too bad. Worth a try, especially for ticking Jersey.
