3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a DFH snifter did not yield any head only thing that showed up was a light ring of bubbles around the glass. The body of the brew was a murky apricot in color.
The aroma is big on the Belgian yeast, bubblegum and cloves are right in your face. It is most defiantly sweet and candy like in the smell. The feel in my mouth is a solid medium with almost no carbonation. The flavor is sweet fruit up front with a nice pepper spice note in the end.
It was easy to drink. I finished the bottle with no problem it was a ok try at a triple not one of my American favorites but close

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Traded bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head and no real lacing. Aroma is sweet with a metallic ring to it. Flavour is a mix of sugar candy sweet, plus a little sour funk. Not bad. Just simple and different.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
In short: A really messy sweet beer of some kind. Really bad.
How: Bottle 22oz. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Cloudy dark dirty yellow topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose of rot, butter and flowers… what the… Taste is just weird and off. Too sweet, flower juice, buttery pie crust, honey, perfume. No need to expand on my limited notes, this is bad, really bad. Oh Brother! What the hell was that? I hope this was a bad bottle. This thing had more problems than a squirrel on a six lane highway.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with with yeast swirls dark orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy malty and caramel malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The balanced flavor contained notes of malt hops and caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours like you think a tripel should ... deep golden, without too much fluster. Same with the aroma -- rich and sweet, full of grape-laced fruitiness. Very nice rounded flavors, sweet, fruity, candied. None of the funky farmhouse-ish-ness that turns off some, this instead is just a nice fruity (and strong) Belgian beauty. (#3678, 9/20/2009)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Overly sweet for the style, this Tripel attempt showcases orange peel and egg pie wackiness in a hefty body marred by tart manneurisms.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy orangey blond.
-Soapy notes delve into bubblegum in the nose.
-Citrusy wheat seems confused.
-This is a good example of how Americanized Tripels can be off the mark. Then again, it’s hard to believe this bottle contained the brew they really wanted to get...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Late June/Early July 2008: Two Brother Oh Brother! is cloudy with a white-ish/yellow-ish color and a thin, nearly non-existent white head. It smells slightly sour along with the typical fruity and yeasty Belgian characteristics. It has a sweet, malty, fruity, and spicy flavor and reminds me of Hawaiian bread followed by a dry, slightly acidic finish. Overall this beer is OK, but maybe not worth seeking out.
1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (20°Plato, 28 IBU, 8.5% alc/vol) from Dilly Deli in Mariemont, Ohio. Rating #108 for this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a medium thick and foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, grassy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of yeast, citrus, hops and malt. The finish is yeasty with mild spice and malt left over. Above average overall.
