Pour is a hazy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is citrusy bitter with a dry pils malt. Flavor is butterscotch, lemon juice and pear juice. Finish does have some alcohol heat with a bit of candied fruit. I don’t know what they were going for here or if this is just a bad bottle(the cork was almost impossible to get off) but this was far from a good triple. No real yeasty esters or flavorful hops.

14-FEB-2014, bottle @Ulkløbben meeting, @Michael. Golden, clear with lasting, lacing White head. Aroma is sweet with yeast, spice, toasted malt. Taste the same. Full body, soft carbonation, too sweet. A bit strange but mostly just too sweet.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear amber pour with a splash of foam. Nice spicy Tripel. Full and fragrant. A bit harsh alcohol wise. Tripel notes are proper but simple. Not overly complicated, but a nice full take on the style.

callmemickey (2269) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Hazy golden-orange colored body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Bready malts, with stonefruit, clove, and light citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly sweet, starts to get cloying after a few sips. Not capturing the style right.

stevoj (1704) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Nice spicy tripel, just a touch of tanginess, some floral notes, clear golden body with active carbonation. Decent fluffy head shrinks to small lasting head. A tripel with a little bit of bite.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2014
750 mL bottle from Beer Run. The cork was a real bitch to get out. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of yeast, candi sugar, cotton candy, candy apples, stone fruits, a faint bit of tart citrus. The taste is dry pale malts, tart fruits, tannic notes, yeast, strong spice in the finish. Medium bodied, lingering spice, moderate carbonation. Straightforward but well made.

60minuteman (603) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2014
A very pretty clear yellow-orange color, almost looks pink in dim light. Aroma is floral, lemon, berries, pine, and malt. It is almost similar to a sweet white wine in smell. Taste is slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Medium body. The alcohol lingers just so...nice touch.

floydslip (139) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Hazy orange beer with a thick foamy white head that rises quickly. Fairly monotone sour nose with some spice, but little overall complexity. Flavor is better with bright sour lemon initially that develops some spiciness consisting of clove, coriander, and mild ginger with undertones of under-ripe banana. Then a little bit of bitterness closes out the profile. The effervescence is lively making this a refreshing beer that is easy to drink.

pinkie (427) - New York, USA - OCT 27, 2013
This pours hazy and a light golden color with a faint orange hue. There is steady stream of bubbles rising up through the middle. The head is delicate, white and creamy and fell to a film and a ring of loose bubbles.

The nose is deeply rich and sweet. At first you can smell a strong bit of yeast but then the fruits take over. Pear, apple skin and a tart apricot. There is plenty of earth in this nose and spices that make it woody and deep. Candi sugar and sweet soft bread. Gentle clove and orange with a sweet green grape as it warms.

Taste is very rich as the fruits and the rich sweet bread combine on the palate with a surprising and welcome light tartness from citrus. The spice brings a depth to the drink that is earthy and woody and adds clove & coriander. Honey. There was no alcohol on the nose but there is a bit of warmth and that’s terrific as this is a big beer at 10.5 %.

This beer was brimming and overflowing with succulence from fruit flavors and a sweet deep malt that stayed soft. The mouthfeel is creamy and the carbonation provides a slight tickle. It finishes dry . Hops are flowery and and it develops a little pepper in the finish too.
