3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at taproom. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Orange and Other juicy fruit on the nose. Solid triple aspects on the tongue. Finished with that warming thing you get from mad elf. An interesting experiment but I'm missing the fullness and the fruitiness of the mad elf.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle via trade. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has sweet candies and some toffee and caramel. The taste is more sweet than anything, but I get some spice as well. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, light spice, some toasted malt, I’m not sure this is a tripel in my opinion, this is pretty basic stuff, not much to get excited about.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg labeled 7.5%. Clear amber orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving some bits of lace. Medium to bigger body, smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Mild slick texture. Toasty malt and mild burnt sugars, little bit of mild spiciness, touch of fruity banana ester, mild caramel. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness, very mild warmth. Is this a tripel? Kind of, but more amber than typical. I call it a belgian amber ale. Solid overall.

The brew itself is a good representation of the triple style. The fruit notes make it the Xmas style but it’s still a little less than the original mad elf. Tap and bottle

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber color with a brief off-white head. Aroma is sweet, some spice, banana and a little bit of alcohol (maybe some dried fruit?). Medium-full body, the taste is yeast forward - spice, banana with a bit of sweetness in the back. Finish is a little dry but with an alcohol kick. Good stuff!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of cinnamon and spice. Taste is sweet with a light maltiness and dry spiciness in the finish. The only thing missing is the heavy sweetness/maltiness. Interesting.
