trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz bottle Pours a dark golden color with a medium fizzy head that faded quick and leaves spotty soapy like lacing. Smells of dough and Belgian yeast and spices. Tastes of Belgian yeast, dough, banana, apple and pear. Mouthfeel is surupy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this has strange sour elements for a tripel which makes it different. Since I live close to Everett Iíve had it many times but prefer it on draft. I might revisit this after having it again on draft because it seemed to taste a little different from the bottle.

1pintatatime (81) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pours a light gold color. Thin, white head. Belgian aroma of cloves and cinnamon is present. Thereís also hints of bubblegum. This sweet bubblegum aroma leads into a sweeter taste than I expected. The Belgian spiciness is there, but itís subdued and somewhat underneath a smoother, sweeter (more honey than caramel), beer. Body is just a bit on the thin side. Good but not exactly a traditional Belgian. And if this is really 9% itís hiding its booze very well.

vyvvy (4133) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. The aroma has cream, mild caramel, milk and abbey ale yeast. It has a medium / full body with quite a bit of soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with caramel, smooth malt, milk, Belgian yest and a good amount of sweetness. The finish adds a bit of spice, but is still very slick and smooth.

TXBadger (1522) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Light fruits, yeast, raw wheat, and some close on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Hazy golden with a slight orange hue, under a thin foamy white head. Nose is earthy estery with some light tree fruit and brewery cleaner. But the flavor pops with a ever-so-slight acidity that turns to doughy pilsner grains, tangerine, pear, and sweet apple with a little malty boozy ester toward the finish. Doesnít taste too hot, so itís a bit delightfully dangerous.

I havenít had a traditional Belgian Ale so I have nothing to compare this Belgian Style Ale against. The Tripel 7 Poured a deep golden color that reminded me of apple juice with a thin off-white head. The aroma came off a little fruity with a hint of wet grass. It had a medium body with a soft mouth feel that kind of popped with the carbonation and the back of my throat. Not at all unpleasant. The taste of this ale was mildly herbal with a hint of pear and bitter hops. The aftertaste was a bit astringent which showed up more and more as this beer warmed up towards room temperature. This aftertaste becomes a little overpowering towards the end of the glass. This is a great beer as long as it remains at a nice chilled temperature.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle: pours a golden amber color with a small white head. Aromas are super fruity and sweet. Taste was much the same... Sweet and fruity, not as "belgianny" as I was hoping, but itís pretty good. Where is the alcohol? Hidden so well... Enjoyable, but not what I was expecting.

Pours a nice golden hazy color. Actually pretty disappointing for the style as its unbalanced. Syrupy sweet and and an astringent aftertaste.

Nice golden color with a White head. Tastes like a regular Belgian ale with almost a barrel aged taste, which I donít really like. But the abv is high so that makes up for it :)

Hopswagger (198) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
P: Slightly hazed copper body with a topping if white thin milky head that fades rather fast and leaves a wet ring around the glass. S: Starfruit, peaches, apricot preserves, pears, yellow apples, wheat grain, pineapple, artificial syrup flavoring and lime. Has almost a dairy character to it. Dry timidly musty yeast, and weeds. Aroma is dialed down. T/M: Not like the fruity nose. It has an odd aftertaste of spoiled fruit and bitterness similar to bitting into kale. Butterscotch comes to mind for the weird after math. Artificial banana and an odd spice profile. Body is nice and sticky with a subtle dose of carbonation. Overall taste is off and cheap. O: Not a fan of this beer but I didnít expect too much for such a cheap tripel offering. Nose is nice and body was well done. Taste is just not appealing.
