3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow body with a mostly white head. Sweet and malty up front with loads of fruit. Tart cherries, citrus, sweet alcohol latent candied sugars, bananas and a hint of lemon. Apple and some chewy sweetness with a light tart finish. A mild spiciness also finds its way in here as well. This beer was all over the place, i enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #100 of Illinois brewed beers. 22 oz bottle purchased from Party Liquors (Steger, IL). Bought on a whim and because it was in the cooler and was to be promptly drank. Pours a hazy amber hue, with bits of gold nestled into the body. Medium white head that sticks around, laces, and continues to grow as the bottle is continously poured in. Aromas are fruity and belgian yeasty spice in a nutshell, a touch of estery presence, banana and citrus, mix well with some belgian candy sugar and spice. Taste is similar, lighter bodied, but still a presence. Dry yet fruity sweetness, interesting, but not a favorite. Finishes with a bit of a remembrance of the flavor. Cheers!

[Bottle] Pours a cloudy, lemony orange with a medium whitish head. Aroma is sweet/tart wheat, banana, clove, and yeast. Flavor matches with a little more spices. This should be more carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a mild to moderate malt presence with sweet fruit (grapes, apples) and light spices. The flavor has an interesting mixture of fruits (apple, lemon citrus), wine, yeast, and moderate sweetness. On the lighter side. This was not my favorite triple.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. TBOBTA pours light tangerine-colored with a smallish head. The beer is hazy and quite pretty. The aroma is subtle pear and sweet apple cider. The body is light but neither crisp nor oily. The taste is very cider-like with natural fruit sugar flavors. The Pilsener body adds a nice twist to this tripel. The finish is lingering and sweet, not unlike a wine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Joey from South Bay Drugs and Liquor. Creates almost no formation of head but the ale has tiny carbonation bubbles rising in a dense glowing orange colored liquid. There is a mild nose of spice and yeast with a faint background of dried fruit such as pear or apricot. Flavor is more rewarding than the aroma hinted the beer to be since a richer serving of the dried fruit becomes more apparent and to repeat myself again apricot, pear and banana are tasted. Gently spiced with Belgian yeast as well as bold malt profile makes for an interesting drink and I believe this tripel has a unique twist to the recipe to make it different than the others. I feel very privileged to have tasted a bottle from Two Brothers Brewing since I had never heard of the company before.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. It has a citrus and yeast aroma. The flavor is much the same and is pretty sweet with a slightly dry finish. This medium bodied tripel is quote good though it lacks the complexity of some better examples of the style.
