4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one is full of citrus hop taste and aroma. Mixed in there is some pineapple and grape. Oak comes through nice and big. Vanilla rounds out the experience. This is a different kind of Tripel. I really hope they come out with it again down the line. Maybe in their provisions line. Iím out of bottles and I want more. If youíre looking for a well rounded Tripel, donít look here. If you want a big flavorful Tripel with a huge hop kick and a good oak presense, this is for you.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Stone. Clear golden yellow pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is sweet with faded hops perhaps a grape like character and an underlying clove smell. Taste is sweet malt, a bit of alcohol, candied sugar, and citrus. Bit of a tangy and sharp finish from the citrus and alcohol. Appropriate mouth feel for the style. This tasted much better than it smelled. Good beer.
