4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to GRG1313. Gusher. Pours with a hazed golden hued body and a massive white head. Some particles. Aromas are of funk and floral oak, spicy barrel notes, medium esters, lots of phenol. Rich brett. Mild alcohol. Flavors are dry and funky, with still a rich Tripel character. Nice esters and phenols, elegant. Some tannin notes. Light perceived sweetness from the alcohol. Dry, with very active carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden orange with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is sweet wild yeast so pleasant in the nose. The flavor of the spicy and sweet westmalle yeast complement the Brett so well on a decent solid body. There are boozy notes that come through clean on the Belgian style flavors and good body.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) frothy eggshell colored head that is big and lasting atop this gold pour. Nose of honey, Belgian yeast, spicy, floral, horsey, mildly tart as well. Taste is also big on florals, brett, honey, gold raisin, pear, alcohol, Belgian yeast, an absolutely delicious floral linger, some tartness found in the finish as well. Maybe the best spin on a sour tripel I’ve ever had. I’d drink this regularly if they could make it often!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
from notes. cloudy golden color, lots of carbonation. billowing head falls to a cap. straight up funk and tropical fruit. lots of biscuity malt. fairly woody. Taste is of boozy malt with lots of malt that is kind of sweet. smooth at first with a harsh alcohol feel. not really something that i want to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Ughsmash...thanks Jason! - Golden pour with tons of fruit, brett and barn yard funk on the nose. Taste is much more sweet with as much fruit as sourness. There is still enough sourness in there. It was mentioned that there was a bit too much carbonation, and I agree. All in all this is still an fantastic beer, I never expected to get to try!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from a late 2010 trade... Pours a golden orangey brown hue and topped with a thin creamy white head quickly to dissipate... Sweet and yeasty l, fairly sweet all around with a fair bit of vanilla and pineapple note to follow... Flavors follow suit with an upfront sour lightly funky sour tint and then follows up with more of that sweet tripel profile which actually kills it for me. Carbonation is almost too lively and sweet from an overall perspective. Somewhat of a letdown to be completely honest.

Bottle: The aroma is lightly fruity with a touch of lemon and funk. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white ring for a head. The flavor starts fruity with hints of banana and orange peel. The finish has a touch of lemon and oak. Light-medium bodied with lively, somewhat prickly, carbonation.
