UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Cloudy golden goodness, with a wispy white head. Lemon, straw, and watermelon bouquet. Soft, velvet texture. Taste, subtle sweetness, sort of like a push up (frozen thing you eat), but with some hops on it. Great brew! Want more.

Beautiful in the glass, pale crystal clear, beautiful fast disappearing head. Wonderful nose, very floral, some fruit and munich? malt, slightly doughey. Flavor is wonderfully complex yet straight forward. Floral notes from nose carry over into flavor. Also fruity, light citrus, unique maltiness. Wonderful moughfeel, very lively. Overall a joy to drink. A real treat I’ll have again.

Bottled. Pours a nice little golden color with a medium head. Nice foam and some long lasting bubbles inside. Aroma is sweet citrusish. Taste is carbonated with nice little hops bite, easy drinking for a Trip.

Now this is what a tripel is all about. Man, what a great beer. Suprised at how easy the 750ml bottle went down with me and my brother. If there was anything to be nitpicky about this this beer, it was the sludgey chunks at the bottom. Man that stuff looked like it belonged at the bottom of the Okeefanokee Swamp. But with some cafeful decantation, that sludge stayed where it was supposed to stay.
The beer pours out a beautiful honey golden color with a big bright head with slow dissipation. Aroma of honey, apple juice, cloves, dust, roses, even some slight pepperyness to it. I could go on smelling this for a long time and continue to find new aromas. Mouthfeel is near perfect, not overly carbonated, but just right. Slight stickyness to it. Flavors were just as complext as the aroma. Grassy, yeasty, light fruits, cotton candy, pepper, vanilla, and floral. The alcohol reveals itself with a final nip towards the end and it finishes on a high note."

Golden with a very dense and high head in the beautifully crafted glass. Frutiy-sweet aroma that reminds me of a complex Duvel. The flavours are spicy with notes of orange, citrus and herbs. The alchol lingers for some time, but not in an unplesant way. A great beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml - Best before 12/04/09 - Aroma of funky yeast (almost like a saison), light juicy fruit and spices. Pours transparent gold with a huge white fluffy head and great lacing over cascading bubbles. Flavor is more doughy yeast than funky from the aroma. Still fruity and spicy. Palate is creamy and effervescent with no alcohol bite whatsoever. A fantastic beer all the way around. My non-craft beer drinking in-laws loved it.

Poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a nice straw/amber color with a huge frothy head that breaks down after a couple of minutes. Leaves some thin lacing that also disappears after a short time. Aroma is earthy. Flavor is interesting with malt and sweet fruity flavors. Some very earthy flavors with plenty of spice...kind of peppery actually. Nice mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. Nice way to bring in spring...very refreshing. New to the style...I enjoyed it.

Draft @ Eulogy: Awesome beer! Great on Tap! Poured a dirty blond color with a nice amount of head. The aroma was very sweet with slight apples. The flavor was yeasty, malty, complex but extremely well balanced. Overall, one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Pours a very clear gold (slightly hazy towards the end) with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Wonderfully smooth beer. No one taste overwhelms, it’s almost like a lightly caramelized piece of fruit. Sweet and malty. The body is very fizzy and gives a very refreshing sensation.
