Hanuta06 (318) - Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Sound Brewery. Aroma: moderate apple aroma. Appearance: very small, frothy, white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, light-amber body. Taste: over-ripe fruit initial flavor and lightly sweet, apple-like finish with short duration. Palate: medium-bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Unique flavor and easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 This is a fantastic trippel with hints of its northwestern origin in the ever so slightly hoppy finish. Enjoy it in the late afternoon sun overlooking the puget sound.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2013
22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, apple, pear, banana, grape, honey, candi sugar, bubblegum, clove, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with a good amount of malt presence. Taste of apple, pear, apricot, banana, grape, honey, candi sugar, bubblegum, clove, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, honey, candi sugar, bubblegum, clove, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors; with a good amount of malt balance and no cloying sweetness after the finish. A little too malty for my preferences, but it is still quite balanced. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Tripel style. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with moderate malt balance; and quite smooth to sip on for the ABV level. A very enjoyable offering.

Frozer (105) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Sweet malt aroma backed by banana. Taste follows suit with the sweetness. The yeast culture is of course the base of all the flavors. Not boozy at all considering the alcohol content.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle:   Yellowish straw, a little dirty, moderate to large frothy white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Somewhat of a spicy wheaty nose, pale breadiness, faint alcohol.   Bready on the tongue, light alcohol, smidgen of pear/apple skin.   Feels a bit wheaty too.   Pretty much your standard American Tripel that is neither very Belgian like, bright, spritzy, floral, etc...   For what it is, an American interpretation, its not bad.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Lingering wheatiness, breadiness, with faint pale fruit.   Solid, but like many others.

ericdevin (658) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle from Phil. Slightly dark golden straw color. Aroma is tropical fruit and bananas, subtle yet rich without being cloying. Very lively palate, some warming. Bananas back in at finish. Not too shabby.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some earthy notes and hints of yeast. Taste is a fruity and grainy malt sweetness with some earthy bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. Nicely done.

Dogbrick (7581) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This beer is a hazy straw-orange color with a thin white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of earthy yeast, bananas and malt. The finish is short and sweet with a yeast and spice aftertaste. Decent overall.
