Bottle. Acidic buttery caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet butter and caramel malt flavor. Sour, lightly acidic finish. Not so great.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle: Not to much to add that others have not said already. 1st: it doesn’t come off very Belgian like, missing the earthiness and spicy notes of the yeast. 2nd: I too got a infected bottle that is full of vinegar like tartness and thin body. After getting a touch of infection in the stout and amber it seems Triton has some QC issues with the bottling line. Drain Pour!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
5oz taster on tap at Cincinnati Beer Fest. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Good bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, crisp, sort of tingly carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate bitter taste. Kind of metallic twang to the flavor. Some light floral, lightly herbal hop. Light spiciness. FLavor is way wierd, and no way of indicative of a BPA besides light spice. No belgian yeast character. Besides that, not awful. Some decent citrus hop character.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a cloudy golden orange with fluffy off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet with a heavy Belgian yeast presence along with some hops. Tastes like it smells, but less pleasant, with a below average mouthfeel. Glad I didn’t buy a glass of this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated hazy light yellow brown colored body. The aroma was citrus musty and mild malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild spice hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. A big golden hued head fills my Spigelau glass. A honey gold beer under it. Sticky lacing. The foam seems to take forever to subside. The aroma is "Belgianesque." Yeast and fruit notes. The first sip brings a sourness that is a negative. It comes across as a sour ale. Compex fruit and caramel flavors with yeast and pale malts. It brings a little bretty funk. This could be a saison but has more barnyard funkiness. I am not sure it is supposed to be a wild ale but it has ended up being one. And not a bad one at that. But my guess is that is infected.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a bottle is rather viscous. Sediment. Orange with brown hue. Big ale impressions. Must be quite high in abv. Mild volatile smell. Decent co2, surprizing, but fades. Finish is medicinal linger.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from fletche00, thanks Zach. Poured a decent looling deep reddish amber body with a frothy mostly white head. That’s about all this beer got right, all down hill from there. The aroma is bad white grape juice in an old metal can along with some stamp paste and earth. The body is hard to tell since it’s tought to swallow, seemed medium overall with strong carbonation and luckily a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is actually worse than the aroma, notes of old raisins and some bad fruits along with rottiing bad lemon and cherry along with dough, pennies and earth. Not good, anywhere.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours amber/copper with a beige head. Aroma of pale malts, light hops, and a weird spiciness/barnyard note. Flavor the same with a weird almost sour in a bad way finish. Average texture. Not great, maybe a bad bottle.
