4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, clear gold with a thick, pillowy nearly-white head that subsides into an endless, thin, white lining of bubbles over the liquid. The aroma is sugar, fruit (banana), honey-like malts, and yeast. It is very inviting and very Belgian. The flavor starts with a soft, fruity spice (hints of clove and black pepper) and lots of delicious, doughy malt. The middle of the tongue picks up flavors of grassy hops, some alcohol, and more sweet malts. The middle of the tongue also detects more fruit (bananas, perhaps a hint of pear). The beer has a long finish with banana, sugar, and spice. The finish is quite warming, too. The mouthfeel is medium in body and creamy yet stinging with carbonation. Delectable.

2007... hazy pale yellowy brown with an unstoppable white head. very floral aroma with notes of yeast, spicy burn and grass. fresh bottle is a bit too sweet on the palate. the flavor is a perfectly balanced mix of pears, yeast, pale malt, grass and skunky hops with a spicy finish. medium to full bodied. creamy mouth feel is soft, luscious and refined... 8/4/7/5/17/4.1

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Eulogy in Philadelphia. Pours hazy golden with a textured white head. Aroma is sweet, with lots of clove, fruit, yeast, and a tad amount of alcohol. Very faint syrupy texture. Initial flavor apple, pear, clove, and wheat malt. The finish has a mild pepper and spice bite, a small amout of rubbing alcohol peeking through. I had just recovered from the flu, so perhaps I was not in the perfect mood to enjoy this. Either that or I am just not a triple fanatic.

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.

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.
