3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow brew with foamy head and lots of carbonation present. Strong hops presence in the aroma and notes of heavy syrup. Warming malty flavor, big warmth. Bit of a cough medicine undertone. Very unique aftertaste and palate. Not bad, just different. Strong warmth spreading through the head and a deep burn in the chest.

Poured a hazy soft amber with a thick creamy off white head. The aroma was sweet, definitely belgian, a tad sour, not as much spice as I would have liked. the flavor was dry, a bit spicy, slight belgian taste, sweet. The palate was dry and musty. A pretty good tripel but nothing extraordinary.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Barley John’s. Golden and somewhat milky appearance. Crisp and sweet green apple aroma. Hints of almond crème frosting and a sharp tequila accent this at times. Apples also dominate the taste with a tart, slightly sugary affectation. Mild suggestions of sweet pistachios and cashews temper it a bit, but for the most part the green fruit is the single dimension. Palate lacks spark and dials in somewhat outside of the style – bored, slick, and a bit heavy. It’s lost some of its life. Slightly trite, but a reasonable quencher.
