3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Victory. Clear straw with no lacing. Sweet malt and honey nose. Taste is sweeter candi sugar, mild herbal adjunct, Belgian esters. Pretty standard Tripel nose. Taste is standard Tripel- mild hefeweizen yeast character, big esters, spicy yeast, white sugar, mild hoppy twang. Very nice, normal Tripel. I took the liberty of categorizing this one from tasting though it is listed as 7% Belgian blonde ale at the brewery which places it in a nebulous position on ratebeer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of grain and wheat. Poured yellow in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Very hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, Belgian yeast, and slight hops. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, slightly bitter, malt, Belgian yeast finish is dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

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.

3.7 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 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Hazy straw yellow body. Thin white head. No lacing. Aroma is mellow with hints of Belgian yeast, orange, and grainy-wheat. The aroma, especially after opening up for a few minutes was a significant improvement. Honey like sweetness, lemon-orange notes, wheat, mild floral character. Clean, light bodied brew with a refeshing semi-dry finish, and a light herbal/floral feel. A nice offering that should serve Alla Spina well for a house beer. [TAP@Alla Spina]

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.
