3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright gold brew with bright white head. Very soft presence of hops, Belgian yeast sweet malt adds to the picture. Complex brew that some might not notice such fact due to its softness.

"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 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of sugar, pineapple, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The usual Stone small/dying head and dullish body makes the appearance a little depressing, but the aroma and flavor balance are decent. As I worked my way through an 8oz pour, the syrupy sweet quality eventually became overbearing, so there's no way I could ever stomach an entire 75cl bottle of this.

A very nice tripel, Pours a medium gold, with fantastic foam, and lacing .. . light for the style but just as complex- light yeast, cider, honey, and dry apricots .. . light bitter finish that leaves you wanting more, good stuff. .. Can you tell me where the pube fair is?

22. Thanks, Riverside! Crystal clear bright dark gold. Very thin filmy head. Big green apple, toffee, and dust nose, joined by a bit of banana. Very much the classic tripel, other than the hefeweisen intruder. Crisp, sparkling body. Green apple, toffee, dust, and lots of banana on the mid-palate. The banana is a weird addition. Mild sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange amber hue with almost no head or lace. Very fizzy initally. Aroma is the standard sweet fruity and spicy belgian style but seems to have a bit more hop kick than the traditional tripels. Alcohol is slighty noticeable on the nose. I found the taste to be quite different than most in the genre. This beer is very lively and as a noticeable hoppy bitter undertone beneath the fruity and malty tastes. Aromatic and grainy as well. The spices to tend to linger on the finish too long. Dry and a bit thin mouthfeel. This brew needs to age to gain a smoother and mellow approach and allow the characteristics to blend.

Pours gold with a decent white head. Smells of spice, some residual sugar. Tastes of candi sugar, dry malt, some citrussy hints, some doughy hints. Great beer.

Bottle:   Vibrant straw, clear but with some sediment, moderate to small sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Dusty nose, a little mealy and cardboard.   Not bad but seems past its prime.   Yeah, cardboard and mealy type malts on the tongue.   Should have drank this one sooner.   Bready, but in that wet cardboard sort of fashion.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes okay, not as bright as I would have imagined it should have been.   Lingering cardboard.   I waited too long to try this one, but decent otherwise.   Thanks Bob for this freebie from one of my first trades.   Been cherishing this one for a while.   Should have drank this sooner.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden-amber body with a slight haze wears almost no head at all which disappoints a bit for a tripel. Honest aroma consisting mostly of gentle yeast notes and mead-like maltiness (honey, flowers, clovers). Moderate spiciness, herbs and mild smokiness. Rather perfumey palate, spicy (rosemary, basil), honey attack and candi sugar dominates a mild alcohol character. Nice soft carbonation, medium bodied. Average tripel.
