3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty, sweet and fruity aroma, some light spices and citrus, with hints of dried apricot and golden raisin. Light-medium golden amber color, with a subsiding head. Flavor is sweet to start, lightly honeyish, moving to some tropical fruit, cider and bubblegum before a gently spicy, yeasty finish. Light acidity, with a thin, peppery mouthfeel. Not all that impressive, really.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy straw colour with long lasting white foamy head and lacing. Aroma of yeast and melons or fruit salad. Initial taste is clean and dry. Back of the tongue and finish are liquor-like which mellows as it warms. As it warms it also develops a light spiciness. The finish is indeed very long.

This was not very good at all. I think that I had a bad bottle as it was very acidy and hard to drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This tripel pours a cloudy orange color with particles of yeast floating throughout. The head is big, rocky, and lingers. The aroma is fruity and mildly alcoholic with hints of yeast, pears, and peaches. Medium body with light carbonation, the flavor is slightly sour with fruit and alcohol notes. The texture is slightly watery. The finish is short and moderately sweet. Not really impressed with this one, and I usually love tripels.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Yummy! Sweet and one of the easiest to drink tripels on planet earth. No harsh alcohol taste, which is unusual for 8.5%. Deserves more credit than it gets.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color with an abundance of snow flakes dancing about. Gushed out of the bottle. Foamy, mogul appearing white head. Aroma of sweet peach soured milk. Flavors are quite mild. Light sour apple, candi, red currents, bubble gum, all with a slightly infected undertone. Dry orange blossom honey finish. Asdide form the buzz little flavor left after you finish to remember it by.
