4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Good sized white head of varying sized bubbles with strong carbonation. Fruity aroma with some light malts, pineapple, fresh cut grass and some spicy yeast aromas. Color is a crystal clear dark gold. Soft malty flavor with more spices, yeast, pears and some toasted grains. Definately a hot brew. Big alcohol presence and warming that does detract from the flavor a bit. As it warms another level of flavor starts to emerge from behind the alcohol. Velvety smooth in the mouth with loads of buttery malts. Really a very good belgian tripel. Could usea bit more malts body to offset the alcohol but still a very good brew.

Bottle for the oscars. Pours dirty blonde with huge fluffy head. Tastes of banana, yeast, cloves, honey, and vanilla. Slight booze on finish. Quite enjoyable from my end

Nose and taste is full of crackery goodness. Alchohol knocks on the front door. Light spice and pepper. A bit of dark fruit, perhaps plum. light to medium bodied.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong aroma is crisp, fruity and yeasty with a hint of butterscotch and a bit of alcohol bite. It pours a beautiful, bubbly, clear amber with a very thick and fluffy white head. Crisp, mouth-filling flavor has a firm fruity component that is mainly apple with a note of banana, along with butterscotch and malty notes, a hint of caramel, and an alcohol bite that gets your attention without being fierce. Full-bodied texture has a fair amount of fizz and leaves a crisp, fruity, malty finish. GO PATRIOTS!!!!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by kevinsenn. Satisfying pop from one of the more interesting looking bottles I’ve seen. Cloudy amber with a moderate head. Belgian spiciness in the aroma. Complex flavors, tiny bit of spice with moderate esters. Lots of bitterness in this one, which I feel should be cut down somewhat. Was going to say the alcohol was well-hidden, but it comes out a lot in the aftertaste. Could stand a bit of aging; I think this bottle was from this year. OK for a Belgian-style beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle from LCBO, shared with toffsbury. Pours hazy and amber with a big white head. Typical tripel spiciness in the aroma, with some oak. Fruit and spice in the taste, then dry bitterness, alcohol, and grainy cereal in the finish. An OK tripel.
