3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aged one year. Pours a tawny yellow with explosive carbonation. A very pillowy white head gets in the way of an ample aroma of spices, malt, and belgian yeasty goodness. Taste is much smoother than when sampled fresh. The spicing has died down quite a bit, which is a good thing. I can’t stand most of The Bruery beers fresh. This is a good solid Tripel given enough time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Yardhouse in Long Beach. Came out clear and slightly darker gold than a standard pale lager. A thin white cap of foam appeared and quickly vanished leaving a wispy galaxy swirl behind to create spots of lacing. The aroma was light yeast and fruits. The flavor was herbal, with some light yeast and sugars. Thin and pretty refreshing. Not the most robust tripel I’ve encountered but it was pretty nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle split with Thor, God of Thunder. Didn’t properly spin the bottle so the first pour was aggressively alcoholic and dry. The bottom pours a murky yellow brown color.. Flavor is yeasty, typical Belgian spices, and orange peel. Didn’t pick up on much Asian influence as others did.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured clear golden with a white head. Aroma of leafy, herbal cloves and a pastry-like sweetness. Foamy, fluffy, dry palate. Noticeable alcohol, fruits and creamy malts dominate the flavors. Chalky with spices and a lactic acidity. Grape-like fruits meshed with tropical fruits. Really awesome tripel!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a large foamy/bubbly white head that laced. Aroma of a handful of fresh basil and for some reason getting a good bit of ginger. Tripel spiciness, mixed citrus, bready malt and candi sugar notes. Flavor of the same spices, but toned down from the aroma. The basil and ginger notes are there, some light corn, bready malt, tropical fruits, citrus and Tripel spicy esters.
