3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed this one on draught at the brewpub in Leesburg, VA. Pours to a hazy, deep golden color, with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose is sweet, with aromas of pale, and sweet malt, paired wiith some light, earthy yeast aroma. The palate is soft,. with flavors of sweet and pale malt, some light estery fruit, and hints of spicy yeast flavor. This beer ends sweet and malty up front, and then a touch yeasty, and some alcohol heat. Nice enough triple, with good malt character. Could have used a little more yeast flavor, but stylistically, a pretty accurate example, and a tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Murky, golden ale with no noticeable, lasting head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of ripe banana, bubblegum and pear. Sweet, malty flavor up front; spicy and well-bittered on the backside. Full-bodied and lively. Finishes malty, spicy and crisp. I don’t tend to dig tripels, but I dig this one.

Cloudy amber body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, some herbal, pepper, candi sugar. Taset is medium sweet, orange, herbal, some pepper, light candi sugar, alcohol. Medium body, some crispness. Solid interpretation, and thus far easily my favorite brew by Thoroughbreds.
