3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Dark golden in color, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Husky nose, slight alcohol.   Seems fairly bready.   Holy cow, that is some fire right up front, bready, with strong alcohol notes.   While it burns a bit, it comes and goes quickly.   A little mealy, but thankfully not cloying.   Doesn’t have any of the floral aspect of a Tripel, but I actually wasn’t really expecting that.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong bready finish, a touch mealy, with some alcohol burn.   Simple, but nothing off at least.   Its a bruiser tho!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On ratebeer its called a triple, in th OBF program is called a craft malt liquor. when I made a malt liquor last year i called it an american trippel cause that sounds classier.. This brew may be more a barley wine, though ighter in body & sweetness than usual for that category. I’m a long time TG fan so had high hops for this one & wasn’t disappointed. Amber wit a modest off white head..Aromas of resin, caramel, & fruit wood smoke. Malts strong ont he flavor front, with peach and smoke mixed with caramel (also hiding the alcohol,) but enough muster from resin hops with a little grapefruit edge to keep a balance.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 On draught at Roscoe’s 4/13/13. Deep golden. Sweet caramel aroma. Grape juice flavor and an odd almost bitter finish. Seems much more like a malt liquor than any tripel. Again, had on draught, but at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival 7/24. Deep golden almost amber. Sticky sweet malt aroma. Taste is incredibly sweet malt with a very present alcohol note. Slightly bitter finish with an alcohol warming effect.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Warming, glowing bronze body with light head. Fuzzy, estery aroma that does not give off much. Interesting, zesty body of lemon esters and a blur of cornocupic flavors with a light banana phenol and a tart finish. Refreshing, zingy maltiness with spicy undertones. Re-rated 4-26. The experience is similar, but in attention to the lemon and tartness there are some candi notes. Note quite as good the second time around.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland, OR. Very small off-white head that was mostly lasting, a few drops of lacing, transparent, no carbonation observed, and an orange brown hue. Nose was malty, hoppy, sweet, and notes of spice. Flavor was malty, hoppy, rich and vinuous. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Decent for the style, but there are much better out there to be had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An unbalanced beer, but still worth drinking if you fine. Draught, cloudy amber with off white head. Arroma of cloves and spice. Lean body, not overpowering but satisfying withal. Doesn’t taste like a tripel, this is more of a malt liquor, but not cheap township bumwash like mose american malt liquors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Oregon Brew Fest--Poured a deep copper-golden-amber body with a fluffy off-white head. More hoppy than yeasty for the style. Fruity, spicy, and extremely bitter for a triple. A hybrid Belgian-American beer that brings a destinct PNW flavor.
