4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Used to be one of my favorite beers. $3.99 from Texas Liquor in Carlsbad. Huge foamy head, some lacing. Yellow orange color. Mild sweet aroma, something pleasant like fruits mild banana. Sweet start of taste and dry finish, probably from the carbonation. Alchohol is light. Really a great beer. I should go buy more for drinking with dinner (if I weren’t trying only new beers).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a very large long lasting white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of bananas, cereal grains, and earthy hops. Taste is the same as aroma with a little spiciness at the end. Medium mouthfeel that finishes dry due to the high level of carbonation. A little over carbonated with a bit of carbonic bite but still an amazing Tripel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the winking lizard - Pours golden and hazy with a short white head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of grass, apple, some yeast, and some grains. Flavor is grainy, yeast, apples, grass and a little pepper spice towards the finish. Pretty smooth and clean on the palate and a pretty nice drinkable tripel.

Great effervescence. Little hop flavor. No alcohol burn at all. Great and refreshing example of a tripel.

Pale blond colour with massive white foamy head that quickly settles. Massive acidic, fruity aroma with some yeast too. Sharp, clean and tasty. Flavours of apples and citrus are there together with a little yeast. Very clean aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, what an aroma, like fresh mown grass, fruity, caramel and just down right enjoyable to sniff! Zero head (I don’t have a trappist glass though, using a wine glass) certainly an alcohol kick but is quickly soothed by a sweet flash of berries and oats, a beautiful beer although I don’t think I could drink more than two or three in a row. I will buy again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best tripel according to me. Super mouthfeel from wheat and carbon. Fruity and yeast aroma, and sweet/fruity taste. Very balanched, not as bitter as other trippels. Reminds me more of a sweet sour ale than a normal tripel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a cloudy straw blonde with a massive white head that just doesn’t want to leave. Clumps of foamy lacing. Nose is noticably Belgian; of fruits, yeast, and grain. The taste is what separates this from the pack. A blend of apple, pear, and citrus round out the fruitiness. Light yeast, malt, and some spices are present in a very smooth, clean, and drinkable ale.
