3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy golden orange with minimal white head. Aroma of sweet apples, bubblegum dental floss, candied sugar, subtle Belgian yeast, and cotton candy - un-classic tripel, more on the sweeter side. Flavour of sweetened apples and pears, bubblegum, some cotton candy, phenols and a bit of booze. Sweeter and less dry / yeast than I like my tripels, but itís well-executed for what it is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, marmalade and a slightly herbal spiciness. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, pineapple and a spicy bitterness in a slightly vinous finish with a certain alcohol bite. More than medium body, fairly sweet and with a bit flat mouthfeel. Nice and tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
quite a clever name - a tripel from thirsty dog, ergo the tree-headed dog cerberus. pours out a nice golden tan with minimal carbonation and foam, and a spicy spritzy citrus aroma. hoppier than i expect from a tripel, with less estery and fruity notes than i expect, but itís an interesting take certainly. definitely more pale malt and more hops than a classic tripel, so really itís only the slightly "americanized" yeast that makes this a tripel at all. very nice, sweet finish but not a beer i would drink regularly.
