Draft at Alla Spina with Pat. Pours a pale yellow body with light haze and white lacing. Aroma is grass, clean malt, spice and bitter hop. Mouthfeel is light with grassy hop and yeast up front followed by some wheat, sugar and grain.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
heavy bubbling in the transparent straw color, thin ring and island formed from moderate white film and small bubbles. Weedy grass nose, peppery esters hiding amidst banana. Flavor is strong banana at front, solvent and lemon mid before citrus zest finish, hints wheat throughout the full bodied, foamy experience. An attempt at marriage that doesn’t work, more hop needed to spruce this lemon-heavy tripel. Thankfully there’s no booze.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at proof. Floral aroma Belgian yeast dough and fruit. Strong inviting aroma. Taste is much dryer than other triples. Almost a mix between a triple and duvel. Still has some sweetness with floral and earth notes. Really like this easily one of my favorite triples.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden yellow with no real head or lacing to speak of. Aroma is sweet, almost apple esters, Belgian yeast. Taste is more of the yeast and less of the sweet maltiness. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Fermentation. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Sweet banana, candi sugars, creamy sweetness, hints of spice and grass. Similar flavor without the viscosity, fairly dry with a spicy note to it. Not bad, just another Tripel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Alla Spina with Pat. Pours a ultra hazy and glowing copper orange. Head was creamy, lacing was thick. Aromas of soap, peppermint, wheat, coriander, christmas spice. Crisp as hell. Taste was a tangy wheat beer with spicy hops, some fruitiness present after it warmed a bit. Further flavors of apple cider and bier de garde notes.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the brewery today. Small glass, maybe too small to rate. Clear amber, lighter and more clear than I expected. Nose of wheat and malt. Almost no head, only moderate lace, pretty, but did not look like a tripel. Taste of wheat, yeast, malt, and a touch of hops, more hops than i expected in a tripel, but nice. Brewery actually lists it as a blond.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy orange gold with small white head. Yeasty, estery nose with banana, almost hefeweissen like in the estery qualities Mouth is soft and fruity, surprisingly dry upfront, lots of fresh hops, softly fruity. Surprisingly nice, I like this more than a lot of their Belgian styles.
