3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice golden color with a large white head and a good dose of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings some pepper, spice, candied sugar, light malt, and some booze. The taste brings forward more of the spice and some light fruits. Nice mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol and spice. Not the best version of the style, but it certainly gets the job done and is a good representation.
Serving type: on-tap

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Oh my god! This is the nectar from the gods. They only let you have three during one sitting which isn’t to say you can’t have anything else afterwards.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale straw-golden pour. No head. The nose is a little bit honeyish with a light kiss of mintiness and lean Belgian malt. Softly spicy phenolics (although the suspended yeast lends this a doughy breadiness that definitely shouldn’t be there). A little bit of banana-like fruitiness and lingering cooling minty character. Long dry spicy finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A basic sugary tripel. Just ok.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body toped by a white ring of foam
In long: Nose of typical basic triple with fruity yeast esters and sweetness. Taste has the usual fruits found in basic example of the style (bananas, pineapples, apples, etc.). But the beer was just too bare-bone, lacked hops and the candi sugar was just too apparent. Strong white sugar sensation. Nothing offensive but below average for the style. The only beer I did not enjoy at Selins Grove. I think I’m gonna on and assume that this beer was just a glitch in The Matrix.

on draft at the brewpub, pours gold with a tall white head. Aroma is peppery hops and citrus notes. Flavor is very smooth, light floral hops and pepper again with candied sugar and grass. Dangerous at 8.5%, no hint of alcohol.

tap @ Selins Grove - hazy yellow pour. arouma is a touch of citrus. taste is a caramel malts, citrus, cinnamon and ester cloves spice. Tingly mouthfeel. Hop bitterness clings to the tongue. Something is off balance on this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/08: Pours a hazy bright golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity Belgian malt and yeast with a touch of fruity esters. Body starts fairly full and malty sweet with a good balance of clove and coriander bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty authentic and enjoyable.
