3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Amberish, somewhat fiery, translucent, moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Very mustydoughy aroma, sweat, dank socks, with a huge yeasty funk to it, almost cheezy.   Strong breadiness on the tongue, not as dank and cheezy as the nose suggested.   Still remains a bit musty and barnish.   Not a bright or floral example, very much American like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, despite it feeling a little sticky or sickly sweet.   Finishes very bready, yeasty, and American like for an Abbey Tripel.   I always wish this were more floral and bright, floral, but they are always heavy and bready.   Oh well, lived up to my expectations I guess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Big rich ítripelí aroma and alcohol. richly sweet, over sweet i think. Coating alcohol, hops, and deep yeast. Alc is a bit much, oranges, some bitter. Huge residually sweet aftertaste.. they may have aimed a little high here. But still tasty and interesting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Stumbling Monk in Seattle, WA. Pours a cloudy golden-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is intensely sweet with lots of caramels and a good amount of banana-bread, floral pears, a light peppery spice, and some candi sugar. Flavor is similar. Tons of sweet caramels and candi sugar with a light peppery spice, lots of banana-bread, and a bunch of floral pears. Finishes clean and lightly dry with a bunch of sweet caramels. Iíll give this beer credit in that its not cloyingly sweet. Lengthy aftertaste following a full body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, man, I really should stop drinking tripels because its a style I just canít enjoy, but despite the size and intense sweetness of this beer, it avoids being too cloying and yeasty. Well balanced and probably more suited for other palates, but just not my thing.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 batch. Pours very clear golden with thin head and nice legs. Strong sweet aroma of hops and malt. Mouth feel is fairly robust, slightly sticky, and clings to the tongue. Amazing booze goodness, very complex sweet yet dry, tart, clean, and wicked. Let this one warm up to get the true flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwers. Pours bright lighter honey gold with small but tight looking slightly off white head that leaves behind traces of lacing. Plenty of candied sugar up front with hints of both apple and pear, very light Belgian yeasty undertone, bits of graininess as well as alcohol notes. Nice sticky mouthfeel with dense small carbonation. Apple, caramel, candied sugar...in between light and dark on the spectrum...pear, grainy banana with white pepper notes to finish while holding a balanced sweet sticky taste and feel. Would had liked it even more with the alcohol less present and the graininess dialed back, none the less solid.
