3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate bubblegum, light banana, cotton candy, citrus, and Belgian yeast. Itís a cloudy burnt orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is a thin soapy sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with banana, light bubblegum, cotton candy, and Belgian yeast. The finish has light citrus, apple, and a hint of spice. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, a little too sweet for my preferences.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at The Oak. Cloudy amber pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring and leaves great webbing. Aroma is very hard to describe. Definitely some bubble gum and banana but itís layered underneath this doughy, fruity, citrus concoction. Tastes sugary sweet but not overpowering. Toffee candy, bread dough, banana, rye, honey, cereal, and some other odd flavors Iím having trouble picking out. Medium to full body. Creamy mouthfeel. An odd tasting beer but I enjoyed it mostly.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
When I saw troubadour on the tap handle I knew at that moment that I had to try this one. Very sweet triple aroma, almost ridiculously sweet... Kind of like bubble gum. The taste is a sort of muddled malt sweet base like a kind of raspberry flavor but sweet beyond what youíd think. Then thereís a lot of hops, this is the hoppiest trippel Iíve had, itís almost an American pale ale level. The hops linger for a time... Itís a really good beer, I only hope this rating improves itís decidedly dismal overall score, it honestly deserves better. The world needs more beers like this.

I had this on tap in the Ann Arbor Bar Louie. It has a great clear orange color and a nice white head that disappeared quick. I donít normally drink trippels so my review might be a bit off, but itís very good. Itís aroma is very citrusy. Itís got this very interesting taste of citrus, oranges, and that trippel taste. Itís one of those beers that you kind of have to chew through. Itís very good and Iím happy to have drunken in one of the cities it was made in!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 (backlog ZBF 2013, tap pour). Sewer nose, as in an old macro pils. Stale and overamped "specialty" grains compete for attention in a sticky and ester-fuming tripel. Almond milk and honey shake. Hops drown in this disastrous malt orgy on an oily palate. One of the few at ZBF I wasnít able to finish.
