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.

A nice triple. Pours a dark golden. Aromas of Belgian candy. Nice sweet candy flavors with a boozy finish. Quite nice.

Tap at the 2014 OBF. Pours hazy orange gold with a beige head. Lots of banana ester in the aroma. Med + body. Flavor is rather sweet with fruit esters and a little hop. Decent triple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ugh. Sprecher managed to screw up my favorite style of beer. Taste is more like a quad than a triple. Too much metallic flavor. Aroma is non-existent. I am sticking to their Amber brew if I ever drink Sprecher again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours hazy orange-amber with a small head that soon reduces to a few islands and a thin ring.
Aroma: fairly good mix of bready malts, toast, Belgian yeast, and soft fruits.
Flavor: fruity and bready, with light spicing from the yeast.
Feel: slightly astringent; a bit hot with the higher ABV too apparent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Hazy pale golden with small head. Very sweet with some booze. Some belgian yeastiness, but everything is just overwhelmed by the sweetness. Unbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours medium gold with no head to speak of. Smells of vanilla, cloves, orange peel, and cinnamon. Sweet throughout with flavors of fruitcake, brown sugar, and a hint of pear. Slightly hopped finish, but far from dry. A solid if not outstanding Belgian style beer.
