2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange amber with a small white head, large swaths of lace. Taste is alcohol accompanied ripe banana, raisins, fresh mown grass, and citrus bittering. It is a lot to consider, but isnít satisfying, which would be the bottom line in a tripel. Not recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan.
Appearance: Somewhat hazy yellow color with a huge head... spilled all over the place during the pour.
Smell: Well, itís a Tripel. Banana, crackery, a slight "Belgian" aroma.
Taste: Quite good. I havenít had TOO many Tripels, but this oneís pretty good. The downfall with this one, I think, is that itís just too "warm." Iíve had Tripels with considerably higher ABVs that havenít felt so warming... this almost feels like 10% or higher. If it werenít for that significant warming, Iíd give it a higher rating. As it is though, itís still a Tripel worth trying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 c&c bottle from Spirits Brick Blvd. Poured far darker than I was expecting, a solid deep orange body sits under an average size cottony bright white head. Aroma was cheap white wine, raisins, super wet grains, rotting flowers, sugar and honey.Fuller bodied with average to lighter carbonation and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Flavor is breads, sugars, dry honey, molasses, flower stems, some nut shell and grain husks. This is not that good.

Vrij zurig (iets zoetig) biertje met een bittertje. Niet echt een body, blijft niet hangen.

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours crystal clear with a small white head. The aroma is cane sugar. The taste is very sweet, light apricot, and more sugar. Not complex.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip at home. Amber pour with two finger white head that disappeared quickly. Some lacing. Sweet aroma with flowers and citrus (maybe lemons?) Taste was very sweet with lemons, flowers, candy and light karo syrup. Smooth mouth but very sweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler from Vine & Barley. Hazy amber beer with a white head. Aromas of candy sugars and some floral scents. Tastes of lemon zest, some Belgian candy sugar, and some floral hops. A bit cloying on the sweetness, noticeable in the sweet caramel-like finish. Easy to drink and smooth. Not bad, but not all that great either.
