3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11/12/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Lightly hazed golden pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces in solid rings. Light fruit, cream, banana, honey, and light sugars in the aroma as well as the flavor, maybe stronger banana in the flavor. Lightish and refreshing. Goes down well and smooth. Nice.

Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Ah, what a lovely beer. Light in color, this drinks with a nice fresh, fruity character. Lemony citrus presides, and the beer has a fun effervescent delivery. Nice herbal finish. Yum. (#4821, 11/10/2012)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a nice offering from Unibroue. Aroma is light peach and tropical fruit with clove and winter spices. Excellent! Pour is hazy orange with a white head. Taste is nice, with many layers of flavor. Initially, floral and fruity flavors assault the palate. Again, peach and melon come to mind, with a sweet malt undertone. Finishes up with that Unibroue spice and a light wheat flavor. A superb tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 This beer was on tap at Wole Foods on P Street. Nice Golden color, white head, not overpowering for a belgian style, hint of spices, very drinkable.
Jan 2013 again but in bottle. Still a classic belgian but nothing special

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden with a bubbly unstable head that recedes after not too long. Nice aromas of golden pale malts, yeasty spiciness, yeasty dough, vanilla, a touch of banana, and candy sugar. Flavor was grainy, yeasty, spicy, dusty, a little fruity (nice belgo yeast esters of pear and peach with a faint touch of lemon), with a lingering sweet finish of candied banana and golden malt grains. A little herbal bitterness throughout. A very well done tripel, though just a bit sugary and slightly overcarbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and rated on October 22, 2012. This beer poured a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, no visible carbonation, hazy body, spotty amounts of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is lightly malty, ruity, yeast, semi-sweet, and hints of spice. The Flavor is lightly malty, semi-sweet, fruity, yeast, and lightly funky. The Mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, an easy drinking beer given the style and the ABV; however, I would have given it a higher rating had it been a bit more maltier tasting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy yellow with a big white head that stays for a while. The aroma has your typical yeast esters, some banana, and a little tropical fruit sweetness. The taste is medium sweet with a nice dryness. Pretty average for the style.
