3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler, courtesy TheCheeseMan. The pour yields a very cloudy, glowing, golden-tangerine colored body. A small, foamy, white blanket settles in quickly, leaving just a thin rim around the edge. Just a few scant spots of lacing dot the glass. The aroma is sweet, showing golden raisins and orange marmalade, with hints of lemon peel and some banana phenols. The yeast profile is doughy, with some mildly spicy floral hops coming through as well. The flavor is similar, centrering on blonde candy sugar and sweet light fruits, with citrus and banana again featured prominently. Bready, doughy yeast again plays a big role, perhaps too much of one, in fact. Mild spice emerges on the finish. The body is big and sugary, but smooth, with micro-fine carbonation. Finishes sticky. Ultimately, too sweet and yeasty for me, but it’s a decent example of one of my least favorite styles.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear yellow orange colour with a thin almost non existent white head. Aroma of peaches, mangos, guava juice, papaya. Flavour is same as the aroma but less powerful. This beer smells better than it tastes but it’s still quite good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Selins Grove brew pub. Poured a cloudy orange yellow with a thick long lasting white head. Aroma was spicy and malty with a good whiff of Belgian yeast and some nice subtle hints of cinnamon. Flavor was close to a perfect blend of Belgian yeastiness, sweet candi sugar and some good malt and spice. I really detected some cinnamon and cloves but they were subtle enough not to be distracting. This was a great brew pub Belgian.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a bright golden-amber color with a trace white head. The aroma was tangy, sweet and sugary with a prominent alcohol note. The flavor was tangy, sugary and had a candied fruit element although a strong alcohol note interfered and the finish was rough. The body was thick and sugary but the alcohol really distracted.

Growler from Beerbill. Poured a hazy light orange color with a white head. Yeasty aroma with light malt underneath. Some spiciness. Malty start to the flavor with big Belgian yeast character. The finish has a mild spice to it. Medium bodied.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at brewpub. Poured hazy copper in color with a frothy white head which left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet Belgian candi sugar, bread, and fruity esters. Taste is very sweet, fruity esters, candi sugars, doughy bread, with a small dose of spices. A bit warming in the finish, but I enjoyed this triple.

Shared by beerbill, thank you. Pours glowing golden and a very rich, thick, foamy head. Looks very nice indeed. Aroma is candi sweet and an earthy-dough yeastiness. Taste is a bit too sweet (like most American Tripels). Flavor ends slightly bitter but otherwise an easy and sweet drinking beer.
