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.

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.

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.
