3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep gold color, with a nice fluffy white head, nice lacing. Smells of sweet citrus fruits, candy sugar, and mild spices. The flavor is more on the fruity sweet side than the candy sugar sweet side, although it is there somewhat. Lots of sticky sweet fruits like plums or peaches in there. Nice full body for a tripel, and not overlyboring like most tripels. Well done.

Had a goblet from the tap at Jimmy’s No. 43 in NYC. Poured a lovely amber-gold, just a bit hazy, with a lingering pure white head. Nose of spice and yeast. Flavor is deep, a touch sour on the front, then complex with some fruitiness to go with sweet caramel and maple syrup. Decent alcohol character, enough to warm the mouth and add complexity to the flavor. Nice bitterness in the end. Good beer.

Bottle. High and long lasting creamy white head. Hazy orange body. Powerful grapefruit pine alcohol hops aroma. Lemon coriander grapefruit flavor with a dry and dusty note that I cannot quite figure out. Not unpleasant though. Alcohol level seems just right. Low carbonation, long and complex bitter aftertaste.

Cloudy orange with a lasting white head. Strong and complex phenolic and spicy aroma, with citrus and pineapple notes. Sweetish spicy flavour with herbal hop notes and a little bitterness, some yeast and warming alcohol. Really complex and delicious

750 mL bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy orange tinted lemon yellow color with a large billowing white head. Good head retention and fair lacing. Aroma of basil, lime, other spices, candi sugar. Taste is strong lime and basil along with candi sugar, caramel, other citrus notes and something a bit peppery. Medium-full bodied. Good beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaske: Fantastisk flot trippel. Kæmpe skumhoved og en dejlig frisk duft af gær, en smule basilikum og lidt humle. Smagen er frisk med en klassisk spids smag der dog stadig tydeligt er anderledes end andre trippels. Virkelig et flot indspark til en ølstil. Elegant og balanceret. Det eneste minus er at øllen ikke har godt af at stå i glasset, med dette menes at alkoholen bliver for dominerende ved høkere temperaturer. Et normalt problem for trippler, men med en stor flaske er det et meget lille minus.

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.
