July 10th, 2013 - Their Embezzlement Tripel is the first beer I’ve had from Rought Draft at the brewery itself, which is a far away, spacious chamber filled halfway with brewery equipment, and the other half dedicated to serving thirsty customers. Beer one on our sampler tray was the Embezzlement Tripel. It’s a bit pale for a triple, with a clean, clear lens and a bit of fog on the glass. The smell is on the thin side, and a bit diluted, but has the earthy, funky notes of sake and a touch of that dry, semi-sweet scent of popcorn. "Cool", according to my notes. The flavor is not so tactful, with a hyper buttery taste and a hyper alcohol burn, scorching a path along the tongue and on the way down. Pear and popcorn follow in its wake with some roast chicken, healing the fresh scar, but that foretaste is a wild, kicking ride.

Hmmm...odd brew. The pour is bright gold and amber with a fizzy off white head that dies instantly leaving a few soapy bubbles in the middle. The nose is fresh and bright with nice yeast and estery notes, light clove and coriander spices. A few grassy and lightly spiced hop notes flutter to the surface. Overall, a bit bland and boring for the style. The middle has grainy malt notes accompanying light grassy hops and spices. The finish is bland and has an overbearing alcohol flavour. Overall, just bland and not suitable for the style.

First thought on tasting is that body is a little thick. Second thought is that the flavor is nice and a cool pepperiness. Crisp amber. Soft white foam.

650ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and grains with some yeasty notes. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy and citrus hop bitterness finishing with a light yeasty note. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation that tickles the tongue. A decent tripel, but there are many better choices out there.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is fruity with apple being the predominate. Also some ester and clove. Flavor is super sweet at first then comes a bit of fruit juice and some dry honey malt. Alcohol makes an appearance toward the end. Was going in the right direction but too much sweetness and not enough Belgian yeastiness. Also this was kinda flat for a tripel.

Fruity as well, much more so than a traditional triple...even had some coconut in there...but in a good way. Thoroughly enjoyed this and the BA version. Light spice, slightly warming with a dry sweet finish."

Tap at Rough Draft tasting room, 18/04/14. Clear pale golden with a moderate white covring. Nose is citric peel, caramel, spice, Belgian yeast esters. Taste comprises lemon rind, vanilla, spice, more Belgian yeasts, light booze, orange rind. Medium + body, fine carbonation, subtle booze strains in a drying close. Decent enough tripel.

Sweet fruity aromas. Pours clear straw with a thin white head. Great flavor, sweet and smooth.

A bit pale and banana like, worth the pour. Maybe you like the style, I enjoyed the strong 9% with a smoked salmon spread but found myself wanting a bit more complexity in the malt bill. Just me but it is still a good drinking beer.
