Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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 isnít lively and itís 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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-14-2012

Gold color with light head and nice lacing. Strong spices, light citric notes and subtle hoppyness. The complex flavors are more evident than in the cask aged. Pretty good overall.

pottygok (479) - Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2012
750 mnl corked and caged bottle. Aroma: Dried fruit (apricots and mango) with hints of vegetable and spices (clove, ginger). This is a really complex and appealing aroma. Appearance: Cloudy/sparkling dark gold with a rocky white head. Taste: Light sourness and light bitterness playing off of each other with hints of sweetness at the corners. Palate: Full body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation, long finish. Overall: Iím not overwhelmed or blown away, but Iím certainly not disappointed. This is a very solid and well crafted beer that Iíd seek out again.

Bottle at our Cellar Dip party... Poured hazy, pale orange-ish with a big off-white head. Quite estery, and spicy. Some floral tones with malt sweetness. Belgian candied sugars, apples, other light fruits and a yeast finish.

Westmeister (1784) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2012
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.

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2011
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.

burg326 (3764) - Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2011
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 doesnít taste like a 9% heavy hitter.
