3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint can purchased at Royal Liquors in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazy golden copper with a firm foamy two inch white head. The aroma is spice yeast esters and a grain maltiness, along with a dried floral sweetness. The taste is big clove and ester yeast, sweetness, grain, then more of the yeast and a sharp bitter sweet. Pretty rough and tumble flavors. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, fine natural carbonation, sweet slightly hot aftertaste. This hit what I expect of an American Tripel to a T, though I’m not a huge Tripel fan. Nice, just not my thing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - Lightly hazy golden amber with a thin off white head. Sugar-glazed dried pineapple, light spice, a touch of dusty yeast, and a bunch of sweet malt. Taste is much the same, with the fruitiness coming out a bit more, and a lightly sharp spicy/herbal bite coming in on the finish before a long, sweet sugary fruitiness takes over. Pretty full and fluffy carbonation melds with a big, slick body. Pretty easy drinking for 8.5%, but still too sugary for my tastes.
