5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful golden color and vivacious scent. Slight sweetness characteristic of Tripel style, but not overpowering. Pronounced Eastern aftertaste - ginger, nutmeg, jasmine, but these are most apparent when the beer is fresh from a tap. Delicious.

"a beer i enjoyed more than most triples i’ve had before, but it still didn’t stand up to Stone’s bigger beers. Light bodied for the style, some spicy yeastiness - not too aggressive. good but not great flavor...barely noticeable hops."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with minimal lacy off-white head. Aroma is loads of caramel and honey. Taste follows with a hint of yeast and booze. Definitely not a good Belgian, but not a bad beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is of honey, white grape and dull yeast must. Hazy orange amber in color with almost no head. The carbonation has left this brew entirely. Taste is also honey, light malt and a floral sweetness (likely from the hops, but taste is more like magnolia flower). Enjoyable.

Old quick review from 2009 - Taste is full of candied sugar, fruit, and honey. A real treat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a tall white head.
S: Reeks of sugar. Cloying as any beer I’ve smelled with over ripe bananas and spices being the only break from the sugar (not that they really help much). Bubblegum and cotton candy only add to the problem.
T: This is so sweet, it’s almost got a grainy texture to it. Sugar, sugar, and more sugar with cotton candy, bubblegum, and overly ripe fruits such as bananas and apples. A strong spice character of clove that is also unpleasant.
M: Syrupy with medium carbonation.
O: Unenjoyable on all fronts. I know it’s sort of a dick move to bash this beer considering its purpose, but it’s just not good.

Pours a golden yellow - aromas of banana and Belgian yeast. A love a good triple, and this did not disappoint. Very drinkable, why can’t more of Stone’s brews be available in my area!?

Hazy amber beer. Soft palate with some syrupyness towards the finish. Creamy malt with undertones of banana and gentle spices. A restrained and well behaved tripel that goes down easily.
