4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Spicy, funky Belgian aroma. Hint of spicy ginger too. NIce, grassy hop. Really excellent.
Beautiful cloudy peach color. Head goes bye-bye quickly. Rose-colored in a different light. Gorgeous.
The flavor is heavy ginger, which fits perfectly with the Belgian spice. Grassy; hints of bubblegum. Some earthy cloves come in. White wine and a touch of peach. Lemon-grass hops and green apple.
The palate is chewy and fizzy. Thick, bites the back of the tongue. It’s a delicious spicy beer. Fizzy like a farmhouse, then hoppy like a pilsner. I like!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orangey gold with good head. Wonderful tripel aroma. Excellent balance of hop flavor/aroma and it is not very sweet which is nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent sized white head of fine bubbles. Sweet malty aroma with some pears, honey and some light spices. Maybe a hint of oranges in there. Color is a clear golden orange. Flavor is sweet malts, more fruit, sugary sweetness and some light spices again. This is balanced pretty well for a tripel. Noticable alcohol presence. Finishes a bit cloying with lingering fruit and malts. Not bad for a tripel and not bad from Rock Art.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fruity moderately sweet aroma, with spices, including ginger. Hazy orange body,decent off-white head with webby lacing. Flavor is malty, spicy (especially ginger), some fruity sweetness. Develops to a pleasing slightly bitter finish. This beer is another indication that Rock Art is really hitting its stride as a quality Vermont brewer, ranking among the best in the state.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours hazy and a shade of pale coppery amber. it’s capped by a small off white head and sporadic spots of lacing.
really fruity nose... mango, orange, light banana, earthy spice/cinnamon, yeast and grass.
the palate is barely sweet... bonus points for a tripel... flavors of peaches and mango are added to the characters in the aroma with a spicy drying finish.
the medium body is uncharacteristically smooth for the style... the carbonation instead is soft and airy.
it’s not bad... not a whole bunch of complexity but it is solid... and not sweet. 7/3/7/4/16/3.7

Halfway between apricot and cider in pour color. Not much head. Dried fruit (mango, apricot, raisins), yeast in nose. Flavor is big caramel malts, yeast, spices (ginger), and a little bit of the fruit.
Dry finish with some faint lingering sticky fruits.

22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of spicy yeast, lots of caramel malts, a little ginger, and some hops. Flavor the same with the ginger blending nicely. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
