4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy pale golden colored. Yeasty, lemony sour aroma. Light and fizzy on the tongue. Bright and dry malt flavors-apricots and sherry. Incredibly well disguised 10% abv. After putting all this work and all that malt into this beer, I would like to have some more assertive flavor and aroma knocking on my noggin. I suspect too much sugar and an overreliance on a venerable yeast strain. Still, a very pleasing quaff.

This is a top notch triple. Among my favorites for the style from an American brewery. Fits the bill perfectly - golden, light spice, great mouthfeel. Love it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured clear light golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex spicy sweet and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taste on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden color. Thin ring of white head. Dots and bits of lace. Banana, belgian yeast, spice, mild must. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Solid but not-that-interesting American tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottled with love on 1 2313, consumed here on 6 1414. Nose is sweet and dusty, light hay and still-bright lemony citrus, light floral background and some of the sweetness I associate with things like spelt and buckwheat. Yeasty notes with controlled jammy fruit, though no yeast to be seen in the body. Pours clear golden with strong carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is lightly sweet, medium tart, low bitterness with medium alcohol warmth that ticks up with every sip; slick and strongly oily, tons of phenolic development with slighter esters. Touch of pepper under clove and jam, bits of sugar in the full body, and extremely (exquisitely) effervescent. Hay and very light grass, but otherwise straight, strong golden malt up the middle, classic sugary tripel. They just made this one way, way too hot, it’s every bit its 10% abv, but it’s enjoyable in the giddy sugar-rush of received good news (for food and conversation with company rather than moody contemplation in Beethoven’s melancholy), if not exactly recommendable in general.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from GRM. Light yellow with an off white head. Candied smoked meat with some reminants of a five alive can and lots of malt, develops into a bit of a rancid orange juice box taste as things start to ferment, continues to be quite malty, somewhat booze. This one was a little odd for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-06-2011 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized frothy, fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent golden body lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is rich malt, sweet, fruity, and some clove. The taste is semi-sweet, malty, fruity, candy sugar, rich, clove, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This is a sipping beer at 10%ABV. The flavor seemed a bit off and thus makes this beer a disappointment for me since this is one of my favorite beer styles.
