3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mildly hazy, but mostly clear golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet crystal malt and ginger with some mild Belgian yeastiness. Body starts lightly sweet with some biscuity notes and caramel toffee sugars along with a tough of doughy yeast and crystalized ginger spice before a drier, bitter peppery finish. Also has some light fruity esters throughout. A decently made triple but could use a little more complexity, balance and smoothness.

650 ml bottle. From Brooklyn, NY. Courtesy of Brandman.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with dense white creamy head.
Belgian yeast, wheat and rubber in aroma.
Flavour is very much wheat beer like. Belgian yeast, mild bitterness, rubber,
I guess this needs those mentioned fruits and shrimps. I couldn’t find the ginger. Mild spices in aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle (as "Golden Tripple") from City Market in Burlington, VT (January 2008), consumed at cellar temperature from a Chouffe tulip. Pale, lightly hazy/thick golden in color, with a huge frothy nearly snow-white head that dies slowly leaving wispy lacing....lots of spices in the nose on this one, cardamom and ginger predominating, a bit of orangepeel, some lightly farmy yeast notes -- pretty much on-target if not spectacular......the body is definitely ginger-dominant, too much so in fact, dry and woody and very spicy with a strongly peppery finish; yeast character is evident as well throughout....the body is fairly full, but the harshness of the spices really takes its toll on the palate, and this ends up in this tasters mind an overdone spice bomb, interesting and not badly brewed exactly, but not terribly drinkable either.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma was totally dominated by ginger which is not an ingredient often found in tripel but it was still enjoyable. Taste was also dominated by loads of ginger with some coriander and a sweet Belgian style malt profile. Full body with great carbonation and no alcohol was detectable. Definitely not close too the style but nonetheless very enjoyable.
