3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a bottle at the Rockmill tasting room. Pours a cloudy orange-hued yellow with a small off white head that leaves some spots. There’s almost a tartness to the fruit in here, kinda lemony, with notes of some fresh tropical fruits as well, along with bready malts, banana, and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, malty mouthfeel. Pretty nice tripel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at 101 Beer Kitchen. The server needed assistance getting the cork out, but once that task was accomplished, the beer pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, banana and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of tropical fruits, earthy yeast, spice and malt. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

750 ml bottle sampled a few times. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange colorwith a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, ample fruity notes, mild spicy character, some wheat with a splash of honey. Not boozy, decent but their price point is a bit high.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at RBWG grand tasting! Pours a cloudy golden yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and esters with a bit of odd bready grain and spice. Taste follows, mild and unassuming, alcohol well hidden. Not one of my favorite styles at all, but this was pretty mediocre anyway.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
guest sample @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear golden amber, light head cover, dots of lace. This is a two month old bottle. Perhaps longer aging would develop more complexity. Taste is semi-sweet malt with an odd bit of wintergreen in the palate that actually coats the taste buds for a few seconds, before adding apricot and a hint of cumin in a lightly bittered finish. Works well enough, but not a definitive example of the style. Alcohol isn’t present, not in warmth or in depth of flavor.
