Bottle. Amber colour, lacing offwhite head, quite a few particles floating around in the beer. Fruity aroma, some alcohol, notes of apples. Yeasty, spicy and sweet flavours finishing semi-dry. Medium carbonation. Not very memorable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 split at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy golden in appearance. Aroma is spicy, bready, notes of apples and pears. Taste is sweet malt, herbal hops, spicy, lightly musty, some fruit, with a bitter and spicy finish. Dry tripel that I found to be complex and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a caged corked 750 ml. bottle with no bottling/freshness date, except maybe on the top of the plastic cork a coded freshness date, 25D.36, sampled at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
Poured a cloudy golden orange with a large foamy white head that settled into a sudsy lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking.
Aromas of clove, coriander, peppery powdery yeast, pear and tropical fruity esters, candied sugar and sweet maltiness, and herbal hops.
Good, steady, active carbonation and a crisp, dry, carbonated smooth, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel.
Good, balanced tripel taste, clove spicy, earthy, peppery yeast, orange peel and pear fruity, sweet bready malts meshed with the candied sugars that also softens the alcohol, the alcohol is warming in palate and sweet tasting, dry herbal, leafy hops, and a dry yeasty, malty finish.
An enjoyable tripel, good sipping drinkability, could be dangerously quaffable, well worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly spicy and very fruity aroma suggests pears, lemons and cinnamon. Muddy brown/blonde body is topped by a decent and lasting, fine bubbled, white head that laces very nicely. Surprising hop flavour overlays the everpresent fruitiness and soft round malts. Smooth texture with medium carbonation. Bottle sampled with with beerbuzzmontreal, cathschlag, Glouglouburp, MartinT, Siroy and Yowie.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange with a generous white head. Smells of bananas, citrus, dough, some misc. fruitiness I can’t quite pin down. Tastes bitter and grassy initially. Some citrussy elements creep in as it warms. Finish is lacking. I wish this one tasted as awesome as it smelled.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from Uber Tavern in Seattle, WA. Pours a very cloudy golden yellow with a wonderfully retentive white foamed head. The aroma brings a big juniper berry note blended with lots of dry Belgian yeast, and a faint hint of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. The flavor starts with a sweet Belgian malt that moves progressively into peppery and almost bitter hop note mixed with the dry Belgian yeast from the nose. A bit tart in the citrusy area as well. Not anywhere near as sweet as the nose, but overall I think a great example of a fairly dry Belgian triple.
