3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a very minimal head. Not much aroma but does have some light caramel malt, a hint of banana and biscuit. Tastes more like a malty hefeweizen. Not bad but missing some depth.

Bottle. A very basic tripel. On sale for cheap - good value, but not very interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Medium golden body with an average white head. Sweet pale malts, spicy estery yeast. Nothing really wrong here, maybe a bit simple, but tripels are just not my favourite style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Decent, but pretty simple-tasting. Iíd be interested in comparing it to New Belgiumís tripel. For a tripel, itís not great, but for a cheap tripel, itís not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 Bought a 6 pack on a whim, was doubtful that an $8 six pack would be a satisfactory Belgian. I was pleasantly surprised. While not as complex as a top quality Belgian, it was very good. very good yeast flavor and aroma. For a bargain Belgium, I?d recommend it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
