4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into signature chalice, best by 10/28/2012. Pours cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, apple, pear, herbal, floral, bread, earth, pepper, clove, coriander, grass, and yeast spiciness. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good complexity. Taste of pear, lemon, apple, apricot, pepper, bread, earth, herbal, coriander, floral, grass, honey, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, herbal, bread, grass, pepper, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and no cloying sweetness. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Very smooth to sip on. Overall this is an excellent tripel. Very nice fruity/peppery flavor balance with very nice complexity. Very enjoyable and smooth to sip on.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 33cl ($5.25): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is honey, yeast, coriander, and a bunch more spices. Taste is somewhat sweet, perhaps more than I would have liked. Has a dry slightly hoppy finish. Mild aftertaste. A good, but not a great, tripel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 This beer is OK, but why such a high ranking? This is just an ordinary triple. Blond colour, white foam. Sweet and bitter. Malty and a bit mettalic. Also a bit soapy. Nothing special.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a small creamy white head that mostly diminishes. Body is hazy yellow, sparkles are visible. Arima contains light bread, lemon, orange zest, dough, banana, grape, raisin, (sweet) apple, coriander and vanilla. Flavor starts off light acidic, to be joined by light sweet (mostly fruits) and light bitter. Body is medium to full, carbonation somewhere between soft and lively. Texture is creamy. This beer has a soft feel ( not harsh) and is balanced, subtle and fruity. Alcohol is well hidden. It's the way I like my tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. A light straw gold with fluffy white head and great retention. Smells lemony, bready and yeasty but no particular stand-out notes. Tastes packs all that in plus spicier notes of clove. Very nice tripel that sticks closely to the rulebook but does very little wrong.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into Trappist glass. Looks great with a hazy bright orange body and and a thick rocky white head that lasts and laces nicely. I get strong orangey aromas along with grainy malts and grassy/spicy hops. Taste is similar to the nose with fruity elements and a soft spicy dry hop finish plus alcohol. Low bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel and carbonation. A top quality Tripel.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Tripel itself pours just like youíd expect. Cloudy light orange with a fluffy and creamy white head. Inviting aroma of lemon, coriander, and yeast. Very aggressive and spicy hops come up first. A punch from the carbonation, too. This initial kick gives way to the familiar banana and yeast of a tripel. Some of the best lacing Iíve ever seen. Lingering and dry finish.
Perhaps not the most amazing Tripel Iíve had, but itís quite good.
