3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750, capped. Pours a cloudy dark bronze with a light, fluffy, eggy platinum blonde head. Pleasant nose of yeasty spice and caramel, doesn’t smell much like a trippel, but that’s alright. Still smells perfectly pleasant. Creamy medium body with tight, tingly, refreshing carb. Caramel, sweet cream, yeasty spice, and a little bit of light wood on the mid-palate. Creamy, caramelly finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish brown with a large ivory head. Aroma has robust spiciness and acidic orange fruits, Belgian yeastiness and cream too. Flavor is quite tart, contracting the lower back corners of my palate. After that some substantial farmhouse funk, perfumy floral flavor, still acidically fruity. Thinner feel, high fizz. Overall, very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Toronado. Dark amber hue with minimal head and lacing. Nose is rich malts with dark fruits. Flavor is initially raisins and figs which transition to apples and pears and sweet bready malts, some winter spices mixed in, finishes sweet. Medium-full body, thick texture, moderate carbonation. A pretty standard tripel with strong malt presence balanced out by dark and light fruity esters.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle shared generously by footbalm. Pours a deep golden hue with a massive foamy white head. A nice aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, yeast, and spices. A spicy concoction, basil is noticeable, lemon pepper, dry yeast, juicy and complex. A interesting take on a Tripel. I liked it, very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weird beer. Starts with an herbal note in the nose and flavor that had menthol and licorice notes, and then re-reading the bottle, realizing it was the basil. Not quite sure I liked this addition. Somewhat sweet. Dark gold color, modest head and good lacing.
