3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep straw, white head. In fact, the beer was so happy to see me, it poured most of itself all over the table…
Very spicy, aromatic aroma, wheat, malt, yeast, phenols, cloves, hops, citrus peel, oranges, wood.
Semi-sweet, quite full bodied for the style, medium bitterness, lively CO2 (as already proven).
Spicy taste, a little bit too sweet, hints of bubble gum, wheat, malt, orange peel, grapefruit, cloves, wood, vanilla, refreshingly acidic. Nice.

Nice tripel. Banana, wood, leather and clove in the nose. Light mango / apricot fruityness. Bitter orange peel. Coriander. Creamy texture. The 10% is hidden well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Jan. 6. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of yeast and sweet fruit along with pale malt and spices. Flavour is yeasty and fruity along with some herbs, pale malt and light hops. Average to medium bodied. Nothing exciting but it’s pretty good.

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 picked up at the boston brewery during the summer. POP!!! goes the cork. Large white moon crater head with good retention. Reduces to a nice silky cap. Hazy gold shines in my tuluip glass. 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!!!!
