3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the 750 mL bottle. 2008 vintage. Dark gold in color with a medium white head that dies quickly. Strong apple aroma. The flavor lacks the belgian medicinal spiciness that I like. Apple cider flavors. Medium thick palate, but over all, a bit of a disappointment. I canít see this getting any better with age.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL bottle. Poured hazy peach with a light cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sour lemon and pineapple notes over honey and bready malts.. digging deeper, I found cloves and white pepper plus lesser cinnamon and nutmeg.. banana Runts rolled onto the back of the nose. The flavor opened with sour pineapple, lemon, and light metallic notes with banana and honey sweetness behind.. candied banana supported cloves and peppery notes on the finish.. wouldíve been really sour at the end if there wasnít so much sweetness as well. Medium-bodied with a prickly feel across the palate.. balance was OK, but I really didnít dig the malt bill or the fact that it was quite sharp as it warmed up. Not a good tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange, frothy white head. Aroma of funky yeast, lemon, gum. Taste is more spiced yeast along with gum and bready malts. Pretty sweet and fruity, with Belgian funkiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy hopscotch. A very nice example of a tripel. Doughy nose with a light spice character and light phenol. Rounded, full and balanced flavor and palate with a good pillowy carbonation leading through to the finish. Still not a style Iím crazy about anymore, but one of the best examples of it Iíve had in quite awhile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís not the most groundbreaking tripel, but I found it quite delightful. A bready aroma and the flavor has hints of pear and candi sugar. A bit of banana and clove in a dry finish. It gets slightly cloying as it goes on, but otherwise an excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy orange gold pour with a quick small white head.
Aroma is fruity, apple and some tropical fruit and light bubblegummy tones. Some acidic tartness in the flavour. Apple and even light pineapple tones. Some honey and clove as well.
Alc is well blended though noticable after the finish, and itís a very drinkable tripel.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a golden/orange color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and fruity, it smells like tropical fruit, apples, bubblegum, candi sugar and some peppery spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pears and bananas. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and slick, and it has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís easy to drink and the alcohol isnít too noticable in the taste. However, it does catch up to you after a while. Overall I thought this was a good brew, Iíd pick it up again.
