12.7 oz. bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Pours a gold color with some yeast sediment and plenty of carbonation. White head settles to a small circular film in the center of the glass. Aroma of yeast, grapes and a touch of sourness. Medium light body, sweet taste. Slightly dry finish. Excellent beer. I tried this with some aged sharp cheddar cheese - great combination!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very cloudy, peach/yellow with a lot of foam. This beer smells like a Belgian ought to smell; pears, bananas, strong yeast, herbs, grass. The flavor is slightly boozy and smooth, but a little medicinal on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml corked bottle, thanks Christina! Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with apple and pear fruity esters as well as grass and straw character. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head that has very little retention and decent lacing. Starts with spicy Belgian yeast flavors as well as some fruity apple and pear notes. Finishes smooth with a slightly bitter note with grass and straw flavors. Finishes a bit off, but a nice Belgian overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled Sept. 3, 2015, consumed in Feb. 2016: Clear, deep golden. Gentle pour generates a voluminous cap of sticky and persistent foam. Quiet but clean aroma of German noble hops, uncured hay, Russian sage, pepper and melon. Prickly carbonation. Opens with a juicy push of bright flowery hops coupled with slick fruity esters tempered by a warming alcoholic glow. Malt is nice and polished: grassy and haylike. Spicy hop bitterness stimulates saliva and underscores the clean fermentation. Quite luscious hopping, combined with ample residual sweetness, causes the lips to smack. Well balanced lilac and haylike pils malt comprise the graceful, mellow finish. It’s nearly impossible to find this style brewed to tradition and without being severely underattenuated and/or a banana bomb. But Tröegs has done very well here (same with the dubbel). If they just sprinkled in some more phenols, I wouldn’t complain. I am surprised to find that this shows no signs of oxidation and is still quite vital after seven months in the bottle. That said, I’m very much looking forward to a fresh bottle!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.7 oz bottle. Hazy orange brown with a snowy white head. Nose is yeast, toffee and dough with hints of citrus peel. Oily medium body with fizzy carb. Not sure why I keep trying tripels when I rarely find one I like. Figured I’d give the home state folks a shot for my 60th. Taste is cloying orange bubblegum, green leaves and overripe peaches. Long filmy finish with cardboard drying. Yup, it’s a tripel.
