2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters with a cloudy, light orangy amber color, a modest layer of soft white head foam that diminished quickly to a ring & film, and spotty lacing. The aroma was yeasty funk with a hint of meaty scent to it, floral and fruity notes. The flavor was sweet, effervescent, with some alcohol warmth, and hop character that was earthy, herbal, and hempy. Tough to finish! A somewhat heavy handed brew, and not a typical bright, spicy, warm, but refreshing Tripel.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can to a pint glass. Hazy amber with a frofhy head. Wheat, yeasty. Way too sweet for a tripel. Kind of a tripel, wheat, pilsner combo, but Iím not sure thatís what they were going for (and if they were they didnít quite pull it off). Not awful, more average, but Iíve heard good things about Tallgrass and this first try didnít impress me.

Tallboy served in a Tripel Karmeliet glass.
A - Pours golden honey in color with a slight haze. 2 fingers of moundy white head cling the sides of the glass at it slowly dissipates. Cool looking can.
S - Wet hay, dusty yeast, hints of grassy hops, clove, lemon, honey, and herbal phenols.
T - Herbal spearmint and floral hops wrap a dense pale malt. Honey, lemon, and black pepper are very present as well as a spicy grassy hop profile backed by heavy cereal grain. Some dried apricots, bananas, and over-ripe pear bleed through. Finishes peppery and somewhat wet.
M - Body is heavier for the style, carbonation provides a soft creamy feel. Finish could be drier.
A Tripel in a can! Big time! This is not a perfect Tripel by any means but itís very interesting and...itís in a can. Lots of floral and herbal flavors going on. Itís pretty sweet but the herbs and black pepper help even it out. Give it a go!

Iím not sure (and Iím too lazy to check) but I think this is the first Tripel Iíve had from a can. So itís got that going for it. Cloudy orange, husge white head. Smell a lot like fresh baked bread. Flavor is sweet but not too sweet, lightly spicy, with some peppery, woody notes as it warms. Pretty enjoyable. Thanks theisti for the trade!
