Sweet fruity aroma. Pours a hazy golden color with lots of thick head that hangs around forever. Med/light mouth feel with a tiny bit of carbonation. Taste is unfortunately oversweet but otherwise pretty good. slight alcohol taste at the end.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a very clear orange with a medium white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, sour fruit, a hint of citrus (probably orange), some booze at the end of the scent, and some biscuity malts. The flavor is a very complex and pleasing fusion of a slight sweetness, mild sourness, and a touch of umami; there is also some booze in the flavor, but it is generally unperceived until the finish without being unpleasant or overwhelming. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, medium-full body, and a slick texture (but the carbonation does slightly obstruct the texture).

Bottle from Julio’s. A cloudy burnt light amber color. Not golden like most tripels. Frothy light tan head (not fizzy). Fruity and malty when cold. Much more earthy as it warms. Complex yeast profile. Soft mouthfeel. Good bitterness on the finish. Light lingering vanilla oak, but not much.

From 750ml corked bottle. Pours orange with a full head. Aromas of caramel, bananas, cereal, coriander. Slightly sweet, mid palate seems a little thin to me. Long finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden-amber color with a huge white colored foamy head. Tons of tiny carbonation bubbles are seen streaming up through the brew, creating that wonderful head on the brew. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is huge of a yeasty smell mixed with a nice biscuit malt aroma. Along with these smells are lots of fruit aromas. A slightly sour lemon is one of the greatest, but is complemented nicely by some pear, apple and peach. Some sweet candied sugar and a good deal of a grassy smell along with a light funk and some spice of clove and coriander are there as well, producing a very nice and robust triple aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat bready flavor mixed with a good level of candied sugar and some lighter fruit sweetness. The fruit flavors consist of the fruits that were in the nose, with these growing stronger and stronger as the taste advances, heightening the overall sweetness of the taste to the end. Along with these flavors there is also some spice flavors and a yeasty taste which start out stronger but with them losing strength as the flavor moves on. The brew hides the 10 % abv. very well with only a light hint of booziness coming at the end of the taste. With the fruit growing rather strong at the end, it is nicely balanced by the arrival of a light oaky, hay-like, and grassy flavor, with the overall combination of flavors left on the tongue at the end leaving a nice somewhat fruity sweet, but very easy drinking triple flavor.
Mouthfeel – The body of the is on the average side for a 10 % abv., but rather heavy for a Belgian triple. The carbonation, as the look would have suggested was higher, but was again rather average for a triple. The carbonation was very appropriate for the style with the tiny carbonation bubbles nicely matching the yeasty and fruity flavors of the brew. And while the body was slightly thicker for a triple, it actually worked quite well for the beer as it nicely matched the mix of light grassy, oak, and hay to the sweet flavors well.
Overall – A rather thicker and fruity triple. Certainly not a bad brew to try and one I think most would enjoy.

I get a spicy yeasty citrusy aroma from this hazy orange brew off white head. I get a sweet malty and oaky flavor with that tripel yeast flavor and a bit of spice with the aftertaste of citrusy fruitlike falvor and a slight burn from the alcohol. Its medium bodied lightly carbonated brew. Not bad brew. Worth a try.
