3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle. Bright amber gold color. Small creamy white head. Sulphuric citrus malt aroma has notes of candi sugar and orange peel. Citrusy malt flavor with an obvious alcohol prescence. Lacks real complexity I’d expect from a Belgian- Style Trippel. Overall, just average for the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peach and apricot nose, with subtle lemon zest hints.Clear amber, medium head. Bitter citrus peel on the front end, candi on the back. Nectarine flavor start to finish. Medium body, alcohol noticeable. My first Slumbrew, I feared this would be the lesser line to my beloved Clownshoes, but this beer is of similar quality. I’m looking forward to trying the rest of the series.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
:Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a decent caramel malt with some brown sugar. Flavor is a little weaker. Some brown sugar and dark fruit but nothing over the top. No yeast and fruityness. This was weird. This was not a triple and may even be more like a dubbel. Lots of caramel malt and sugar.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some caramel malts, and floral and lightly citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle fresh from recent Maine trip. More of a triple than a Belgian IPA, it marries a smooth orange citrus and Belgian yeast tastes. Nicely drinkable, and not showing the alcohol at all.
