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.

~6oz pour from a bottle, at the brewery. Totally cloudy yellow orange golden color. Thin off-white head, good ropes and reaches of lace. Awesome banana, tropical fruity taste. Light, but satisfying herbs and spice. Bigger body, smooth, creamy lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Awesome full body and creamy texture, moderate bitter, awesome moderate sweet taste. Great light bit of alcohol warmth, works very well with the aroma. Fantastic tripel. Light citric acidity is the only mild complaint I can think of.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Impossible cork to get out, had to get the wine opener. Dark honey gold pour with a taupe head that rises 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 component 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
8/06/2011: Rockmill Tripel Organic Golden Ale... Aroma: Sugary, fruity aroma; dessert white wine. Appearance: Dull, cloudy dark gold color with a lofty, foamy off-white head that leaves puffy lacing. Flavor: Spicy and sweet (but not cloying) with plenty of ripe, fleshy fruits, a bit yeasty; alcohol shows to some degree. Palate: Overall: This is a really rich, sweet Tripel that isn’t like the traditional thin, sharp, alcohol Tripel that is typical.
1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle (9% Alc/Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #22 for this beer.

750 ml bottle. Wow that cork was hard to get out. Ours a hazy yellow. Nose of spice, pepper, Belgian yeast and some malt. Taste of Belgian sugar sweetness, ester, clove, and pepper. Mid palate sweetness and a spicy finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 1/26/2012. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big peach, lemon, pear, apricot, pineapple, orange, honey, pepper, floral, candi sugar, wheat, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of malt and fruity/spicy ester notes; with decent spicy yeast ester balance with malt/fruitiness. Taste of lemon, peach, apricot, pear, pineapple, orange, honey, candi sugar, pepper, floral, bread, and spicy yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus and tropical fruits, honey, floral, candi sugar, pepper, bread, and spicy yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast esters; with a stronger balance of malt and fruitiness over spiciness; with no cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel style. Great complexity of fruity esters and malt flavors with moderate yeast spiciness balance; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a corked and caged 750ml bottle at the source. Pours a hazy gold with a rather large, frothy, white head of foam. The aroma is sort of grassy and floral with some sweet bready notes coming through. The taste has a smoothly blended bitter and sweet presence that finishes a little dry. Pretty nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml C&C bottle served in a Portsmouth tulip. Rare tripel tick courtesy of Alex (Masterski).
A: Pours a hazy chilled golden amber color with barely the slightest head. It recedes rather quickly to nothing.
S: The immediate whiff is that processed crust on the outside of a cherry poptart. Some alcohol is in there with a little cardboard as well.
T: Definitely some oxidation happening here. I wonder if the C&C was bad. Wet paper,cherry pop tart crust, and some earthy malt.
M: Almost zero carbonation. The body isn’t lively and it’s hard to drink a ton of this.
O: The bad C&C really made this a hard thing to drink. On tap of that the flavor profile was very disjointed and I barely got any flavors I enjoy in a typical tripel.
