3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Foamy head, disintegrated and left a soapy residue which was appealing. I liked the allspicey, clovey banana flavor of the rooster; the alcohol presence was sharp and strong. Much much much better on tap than out of the can. It was stiflingly sweet and syrupy in can.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!
Serving type: can

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma of this brew explodes into your nostrils despite its lightness with scents of citrus hops and grapefruit, and the appearance combines a large white head with good retention, a hazy golden color, and lacing down the sides of the glass once sips are taken. The taste is very nice with its fusion of mild sweetness and slight sourness, but the palate rounds everything out due to the slightly bitter finish, thin and slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation that still has a slight bite.

The wine drinkerís beer. As the description suggests, itís quite like Champagne. However, the sweet, subtle finish will take you by surprise. The best part about this beer is the appearance. In fact, I would say the combined efforts of the stylish can and the impressive color may result in this beer looking better than it tastes. Nonetheless, it is worth the buy if you are tired of the malt taste.
