3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden/amber color with a medium lasting head. Big fruity aroma, sweet flowers and maybe some honey. Flavor is sweet and malty with a kick of yeast and spice in the finish. Overall a good beer but there are better out there.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden colored with a thin white head that maintains ’til the end. Sharp, woody carb melts away leaving a yeasty banana. Wonderful stuff! This hits all the right notes. Sweet fruit never overpowers. Balance is perfect with refreshing carb giving way to sherbet smoothness.

Poured a cloudy amber color. Aroma was frutiy/yeasts and spices. Flavor was much the same with a flavor that i couldn’t pick out that wasn’t good. Good beer but have had better tripels.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Bottle, side by side with Mad Bitch, and this is better. Bright honey color with a white head and good retention. Nose is yeasty, mildly sweet, clean, fresh. Flavor is balanced and nothing is overly pronounced. Silky and smooth with great carbonation. A very good tripel, balanced and delicious.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew poured a nice dark golden color...initially fairly clear but became quite hazy with the addition of the sediment on the bottom of the bottle. A very modest and well-balanced aroma of yeast, malts, some subtle hops, citrus, and a general fruitiness. Flavors were similarly well-balanced: yeast, malts, hops, fruits (citrus, green apple)... it all comes together perfectly. The texture of this beer is strangely velvety and soft--it seems to almost turn to a very fine foam when in the mouth. Overall an amazing, possibly archetypal example of the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle
Aroma: I was a bit stuffed up during this tasting so the scent was difficult for me to accurately determine. What did come through was yeasty, wheat with fruity banana and apple with a nice hop scent.
Appearance: Hazy golden orange with small to medium bodied sediment floating throughout the beer. For some this might be a turnoff but for me it just makes it interesting. The head was a bright white in color that sustained somewhat throughout the glass.
Flavor: Quite yummy sweet yeast with the fruits again coming through nicely balanced with the hops.
Palate: Fnished nicely with a medium body and some bite along the roof of my mouth. Not bitter or overly sweet either. Balance is an important theme with this brew.
Overall: A truly quality Belgium Tripel. This is one that you can use as a standard bearer for the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Hazy honeyish golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, a bit spicy and aa bit hoppy. Smoother than many other tripels. Flavour was very smooth caramel, fruits, spices and hops. Very nice palate, and one of the best balanced beers I have had in a long time.
