COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
an eschatological ale.. big, bold, hoppy, and gold. built sturdy enough to withstand the apocalypse.

nuplastikk (4658) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Tap at Haymarket (thought it was a one-off). Hazy yellow tan. Has that Pils look in a way. Steady, foamy, off-white head. Not sure what to think of this one. High fermentation temperatures notes, odd, funky, borderline off. Kind of tastes like a juiced imperial pils. Some mild but sweet banana clove notes. Mild and wacky herbal tones. Not dialed in, an odd beer. Certainly has some nice Belgian yeast tones and a pleasant noble hop balance, but this just doesnít come together. Not commanding the premium price. Herbal saison-tripel-golden. Unique, almost has an old school belgo-feel, which I can appreciate. Grew on me a little.

Bottle. Inviting apricot aroma.Lots of fruit, apricots, peaches, grapefruit. Sweetness that slowly slides into bitterness. Clever.

BVery (6826) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with a smaller white head. Clove and yeast, fruity esters, and a bit of hop zing late. Good carbonation and a touch dry late. Really nice.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Westlake, Seattle; bottled 12/13/13
Hazy golden color with medium sized creamy head. Aroma of pale malt, soap, plastic, spices; why the soap and plastic?
Smooth mouthfeel; pale malt flavor with a light cereal tone, light residual sweetness, and evident spice profile, although it takes a bad turn, with evidence of anise and soap; bitterness just a bit above the Belgian average.
In my book, another fake Belgian beer, or a pure American style that I donít fancy. Iím glad I didnít pay much for it.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Clear, honey yellow pour, lasting light carbonation and an aroma of sweet flowery malt and hints of hops. Flavor is also nice malt base, cloves, some sweet floral honey and just little hop dryness on the finish. Solid

drpimento (2280) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2014
Wow, serious brew, yet can just about drink the hell out of it. Very true to style. Great body, excellent finish, though a tad rich. Nice appearance with good head retention. Exotic aroma. Odd in that on one hand it seems balanced, yet itís also got some extremes. A little boozy too.

jgb9348 (4809) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2014
Bright golden coloured body with a hint of orange and copper, all with a three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, sugar, yeast and tons of honey - a very bright and assertive smell. Full-bodied; Strong herbal flavours with a perfumey kick and then showing a lot of curacao, coriander see and yeast - pungent throughout the flavour. Aftertaste shows a very well-rounded, rich, malt-directed beer with some herbal and floral notes showing and a hint of alcohol burn at the end. Overall, a nice and rich tripel with some good herbal, perfumey and especially grassy kicks near the end. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased a few minutes ago at New Beer Distributors in New York, New York for US$3.25 sampled on the same day, on the train to Washington on 25-April-2014.

islay (1207) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-24-14. Bottled on 12-13-13. Musty, dry aroma features scents of sweet and dry white wine, bubblegum, peach, melon, and armpit. A bit of lemon tartness and just a touch of alcohol in the nose. Interesting and good smell. Pours pale yellow / gold with moderate effervescence and a small to moderate amount of beige head. Dry, spicy flavor features a green grape element. Nice but simple flavor. Light tart sourness. Some alcohol in the finish. Dry aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth, frothy, and silky in the palate with some liveliness. Doesnít come off like a 9% beer, more like a 6% or 7% one.

Bottle shared at Cafe Sara, february 11th 2014. Bright golden hazy body, small white head. Aroma is flowery with mild banana, and citrus zest. Sweet caramel taste with lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, peach, cloves and a peppery finish. Light bitterness, strong yeasty and fruity aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle at Dig. Soapy nose, lemon, milk, honey, alcohol burn. Clear golden color with lace. Malty flavor, honey, citrus, bread. OK, like a pretty straightforward tripel.
