1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ok, first I want to say that it is my opinion that I should rate a beer as is with the qualifying statement of "this was a bad beer". Poured absolutely flat amber. It appears that the carbonation of the bottle conditioned never took. One sip proved to be very sweet, muddled and not good. 100% bad. And I was really looking forward to this.

Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the last Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is yeast, sugar, and a sweet vinous fruit (candied grapes?), and some honey. Flavor is fizzy with the same candied grapes quality, honey, malt, and yeast. Interesting and very sweet tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle corked and caged, poured a hazy orangish amberish color, with aromas of fruit, spice, bananas, and yeast. Tastes like the aroma but had a slight sweet aftertaste. It doesn’t taste like a 9% heavy hitter.

Nice triple. Pours a little murky beige with all the yeast in it. Probably the sweetest triple that I’ve had. Notes of honey and yeast. Although it’s good not sure it is worth the "organic" markup.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Natifest ’11. Poured cloudy orange color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted leaving excellent lacing. Strong complex dark fruit, brown sugar and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good dark fruit sweet flavor with a good complex sweet finish that had a moderate duration. Very solid brew

Hazed orange/gold pour with creamy off white head and lace. Wheatiness, caramel, a hinto brown sugar, and abv. sweet wheat, rock candy, Belgain yeast and a nice abv warmth. A bit thin and a tad fizzy for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle poured into a tulip...Impossible cork to get out, had to get the wine opener. Dark honey gold pour with a tope head that rised a couple fingers then falls to half a centimeter. Good retention on the cap, ok lacing...The aroma is nice but light, not the typical tripel notes. Lots of yeast, light honey, no floral hops at all...The taste has more of the floral hop notes, but still not a ton, and lots of honey. There is a weird medicinal quality to it, that’s the organic compenent I believe. The taste is dry vitamins that you accidentally taste on the finish, really distracting...The feel is nice, full and dense, lasting...A bit tough to drink because of the finish but the 9% is hidden well.
A decent tripel coming out of Ohio but nothing outstanding from them out.
