3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/2 growler courtesy of Goldtwins. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of ginger, dry malt, sugar, roses, some spice, pepper, touches of citrus. Tastes dry with a nice peppery bite. Some spicy elements emerge as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is crisp. Finish is dry and yields some mild alcohol warmth. Enjoyable.

Poured a lightly hazy, orange amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, toffee, spices, citrus fruits, and light dough. Taste was sweet, toffee, honey, banana, citrus fruits, coriander, and yeast, with some alcohol in the finish.

On tap at the Sixpoint tasting at Bellport Beer and Soda. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head that disappeared fairly quickly. The aroma was mostly yeast with some lemon notes. The flavor was again yeast with a bit of lemon and just a bit of sugar candy sweetness. Dry hoppy finish with some alcohol warmth as well.

Draught@The Ginger Man, NYC
Hazy golden color, small white head. Fruity nose - some exotic fruits like carambola and lychee in the aroma. Very American-style tripel with lots of fruity yeastyness (mango, apricot). Medium-bodied. Nice alcoholic kick in the finish. Fireplace tripel. Just not too complex to get high 3’s.

2009-08-01. Hazy golden pastel yello body with a huge foamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly yeasty with just a bit of hops, pale malts. (6+) Flavour is fairly dry, sweet malt middle with dry alcohol in the finish. Something fruity/odd for a moment. Smooth average palate, pleasant carbonation. Decent. My last beer of the official sampling session. On tap at BCTC 2009

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Barcade. Very bubblegummy aroma, something acrid in there, like turpentine, that is really blocking most of the other aromas. Maybe a touch of peach. Sweet, gritty, full bodied. Lots more bubblegum flavor. Very American interpretation of the style, which basically means way, way too sweet. Add some sugar to get the ABV up and lower the OG and this might actually begin to taste Belgian. And use a good yeast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Barcade: (Sixpoint’s 4th Anniversery Party) Golden, slightly hazy pour. Sweet aroma- honey suckle, candi sugar and mild phenols. A bit slick on the palate. Sweet flavor as well with notes of honey, graham cracker, a touch of wild flower and peppery bitterness/alcohol on the back. A bit too sweet, covers up and of the yeast nuance (if there is any).
