Pretty good beer. Nice sharp carbonation on the palate. Nice belgian aromas and flavors. There is an aftertaste here that slightly detracts.

This had a huge,long lasting,annoying head.I had to wait quite a while to taste the beer thru the foam.The aroma was a faint cut wheat or grain.Color was straw.Has that golden beer taste that I don’t like.tastes like it has corriander in it.Kind of sour.Honey,wheat and oat taste.Rice??I don’t really care for this,but it does have flavor,so I’m sure there are some people who will like it.I wish the bottle wasn’t so big,so I could move on.I suppose this would be a beer for wheat farmers,who just finished harvesting their crops and they want to celebrate.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is one of those brews that I am almost afraid to rate with my bad taste tastebuds. On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pgh. This pours like any other pale yellow american ubiquitous lager as far as color goes. Has a clean white head. Aroma is not outstanding and there are a few streams of carbonation rising with in. The tap handle on this is cool looking. Initial flavor is slightly strong but definitely not oppressive. Much milder than the domestic coarse trippels I’ve tasted such as Southern Tier. Interesting off flavor on the onset and then it immediately fades to an alky hint. Again, this is not oppressive, it is just that you can tell the alky content is letting you know its there if you want to notice. Low carbonation, very little tingle on the back of the throat. I am not overly impressed with this beer and will probably get hammered for my numbers. This trippel just does not appeal to my delicate girlie taste buds. THe alky is continually apparent but not in the face. Finish is immediately medium bitter but fades after a few moments to just a memory. Overall, not bad but I’ve been spoiled by Grimbergen Blonde and Chimay White. On par with Allagash trippel and Southern Tier.

Bottle. Almost clear golden colour with a nice moslty lasting white head. Rich aroma and taste of fruits, malts and hops. Over carbonated and overrated.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle. Pours a nice amber with a massive thick foamy white head, looked like I could have shaved with it. grassy, slightly sweet fruity aroma with hints of alcohol. sweet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, nice sharp carbonation. Slight alcohol flavor, hints of raisins, cloves and lemons. Absolutely delicious, like a nice dessert in a glass.

330ml - Pours with vigor, golden ale underfizzy head. Grassy, peppery nose wiith some citrus (lemon mostly) notes. The same flovors govern the palate. Nice.

It depends on brewery is making this beer as to the quality but always an interesting light delicate tripel and I don’t think this beer ages well. Page 462 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 233 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
