3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz traded bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-brown color with a small white head. No lacing. Sweet tangerine-like aroma with Belgian yeast. Really strong flavor with a touch too much sugar and alcohol for me. Okay just not my fave tripel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a thin mostly receding wispy off-white head. Notes of honey, white grape, champagne, herbal, pepper, yeasty esters. Full bodied, lively carbonation. A bit heavy, but very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not sure about the ten dog as I don’t see it on the bottle label, but a very nice triple, cloudy honey color, but no head as a draw back. Classsic Belgian yeast fruity flavors , astringent, and modestly alcoholic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from Brusin Ales, opened 9/23/10. Pours a mostly clear amber color with fine floating particles. Medium sized offwhite aroma with fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, clove, caramel and faint nutty notes. The taste is bread, caramel, apple, spices including cinnamon and clove and a faint leafy hoppiness. Medium bodied. Decent.

Bottle share with Andrew56. Disappointing brew. Low carbonation which is good. High fruity alcohol taste which is bad. It poured a fairly rich golden color with strong hay and citrus in the nose. This brew missed the mark.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle from a trade with zenwolf. pours clear yellow with a minimal white head. almost no carbonation. terrible triple, bordering on malt liquor. triples have to be bottle conditioned and well carbonated to work. filter and force carb and you end up with a flabby malt liqour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, moderate to heavy lemon and perfume for the hops, moderate earth and soap for the yeast with hints of apple, coriander, wood and white wine. Head is small, wispy, white with some lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is slightly hazy lemon yellow. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. An okay Tripel, bold but just a little too abrupt in flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An effervescent golden beer that has a nice thick yellowish head. Oodles of bubbles float up. Very pleasant fruit aroma with yeast and honey. Flavor begins buttery with citrus fruit, yeast, honey, banana. Finish brought out some hops and was on the sour side. Tasty.
