Thanks to Dad. Pretty good stuff. A lot of flavors going on. Tripel plus Wit, some fruit, herbal and floral hops. Sweet but sort of dry too. Serving: Bottle

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Awesome Bottle. Pours gold with mild haze, white head. Aroma is fruit, yeast, hops oranges, spices. Taste is sweet- sugary and fruity. Finish is kind of abrupt for all the aroma and taste. I wish I could rate this beer higher because the safeway by my house had it labeled as Samuel Smith’s oatmeal stout and I snagged four bottles at $3.49 each.

This brew was VERY good. The look of the bottle was great, the look of the beer was even better. You could taste the full spectrum of ingredients and the 10% alcohol wasn’t the least bit overbearing. Great Brew

Good beer, but not exactly a taste I prefer. I can’t really knock this one. May be better with a little age.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma of fruity esters, Belgian yeast, a hoppy profile, and some dry wheaty notes. Flavour is extremely fruity, full of citrus fruits and oranges, some slightly sweet candied sugar, a touch of banana and bubblegum. No hint of the oak aging. Finishes on notes of tropical fruits and bubblegum. Solid stuff, but not an authentic tripel by any means.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle served in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip
A - Pours dark golden with a fluffy 2 finger head producing average retention.
S - Funky Belgian yeast, earthy, rustic, floral, sticky sweet malt, wet straw, spices apples, pears, apricots, papaya, mint. Fruit becomes sharp and acidic as it warms. Very nice aroma!
T - Spiced fruit, apples, pears, banana, the malt is sweet, bready, and full flavored but the spice helps out with that. Dusty straw, it has an earthy and character. Apple skin tartness comes out as it warms. Finishes wet and crisp.
M - Medium carbonation, light side of medium body with a crisp finish.
This beer smells delicious! Very good flavors, awesome yeast strain, a tad on the sweet side for a Tripel but there is an underlying dryness and is tasty nonetheless.
