3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods. Rich, amber gold color. Thin head. Nose is classic bubblegum yeast offset by mild citrus hops. Medium bodied. The booze is present throughout, and the flavors tend towards the too sweet end of the spectrum. Thankfully, this beer never really crosses that line. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I believe this is my last one from my sister.
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a nice typical hazy orange bronzed over yellow color with a closer to thin finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated within less than forty seconds. The lacing was there and kinda all over the place.
The smell had that "iced apple" aroma I almost always smell in Tripels with a nice light spicy clove-like characteristics showcasing themselves inside of a bready yeastiness.
The taste was exactly the same. There really wasn’t much difference from the smell.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium with what wanted to be somewhat sessionable, but I found myself sipping this for the most part. The carbonation was slightly there, but I figured, it didn’t have to be since there was a fair amount going on that would keep things together.
Overall, in my opinion, this was a good Tripel that I would have again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pale pour with a white head, thin. Aroma is pungent of alcohol and yeast. I thought this was a markedly unbalanced beer. Too much alcohol and off yeast flavors.

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.
