3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH --- Cloudy medium amber, thin beige head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that adds light spice in the palate with fruit overtones showing in the finish followed by mild hops. A light Abby Tripel, but easy drinking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured with a golden/copper body, lightly hazed and moderately effervesced, under a fast fading yellowhite head. Its bouquet is not "huge" as described, but predominantly pale malt with a hint of sweet taffy, a touch of tart fruity yeast, and growing acetone as it warms. Flavor finds a fruity sweetness on a slightly sticky body. There is a combination of flavor vs. palate that makes this (for lack of a better word)... dull. There is no "punch", there is no allure. I don’t crave another, in fact I’m grabbing a glass of water to wash away the remnants of semi-cloying sugars and unripened banana from the roof of my mouth.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I know Sprecher can do better than this so I don't know why something like this beer is out there. Appearance is a fizzy short-lived off-white head with no lace and a clear amber color. Aroma is malt caramel and solvents. Flavor is like aroma but worse and includes Band-Aids, carbonic tang, little bitterness, and the thought that I really don't like this. Body is okay.

OK for style but not amazing. Booze too prominent. Golden pour with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Some coriander. Bottle.

Bottle, pours a very murky orangey brown. Smells of sweet caramel, apple. Taste is also very sweet and buttery, caramel and apple.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Warm gold color with a lot of carbonation bubbles. The abundant carbonation does not support a head at all. A white fizzy head appears and fades with the consistency of soda. The beer is slightly hazy, where shapes can be made through it but it is obviously not clear.
Aroma: The beer has pear-like aromas with a slight hint of noble hops. It is pleasing to the nose but faint. I would say it is fairly average.
Taste: At first I notice a slight tart presence accompanied by a light bitter and earthy hop flavor. Some apple flavor floating around as well. There is a hint of paper flavor in the aftertaste leading me to think it could be a bit oxidized. There is a hint of wheat in the aftertaste which is more pleasant.
Palate: It is fairly lively on the palate given the amount of fizzy carbonation that is present. It finishes fairly dry, yet somehow leaves a sticky sensation around the mouth.
O: Overall I was not impressed with the beer. The drinking experience just wasn’t as pleasant to me as it is with other tripels.

On draught at 27th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival. Full golden color. Aroma is toffee, caramel, and honey. Taste is sticky sweet honey, frosted flakes, and plum. Very sweet, but I like that sort of thing.
