Great tripel. This beer is sweet and fruity, with very little yeast taste. This beer packs a punch too. The tripel do you good. Believe dat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz pour on draft at National Pastime in National Harbor. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of banana, yeast, herbs, lemon citrus. Tastes of banana, yeast, herbs, spice, wheat, lemon citrus. Medium-light body with a dry finish. ABV is superbly hidden and doesn’t drink like a 9.5% beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of honey, straw and star anise. Flavour is very sweet - verging on Barley Wine territory. Notes of honey, spices and a peppery finish. Flavour of salted orange. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lively fizz. A nice beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

Draft from Half Wall. Pours a hazy gold with a thin head and minimal lacing. Aromas are spice & herb, with a very similar taste. Some booze on the finish; nice and full bodied, pretty oily. Acquire.

Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, banana and spices. Clean subtle flavors highlighting the yeast, and spices. Finishes dry, warming with a lingering sweetness. This is one of my favorite American tripels and a beer that I come back to again and again.

Did not like this at all. Weird combination of spices produces a strange bubblegum taste.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a thick fluffy white head. Nose is light citrus, sweet lemon, and lots of herby notes. Taste is zingy, with lemons and grapefruit opening up to vegetables, herbs, light spice. Really tasty. Not overpowering, but powerful!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Belgian yeast nose, deep fruit, malt, coriander, light perfume, and some fumes. Clear bright gold straw color, thin head, some lace. Strong fruity initial, with dried apricots and banana chips. Sugary. Light sweet finish. Thin-medium, a bit sticky. Very tasty, with the thick fruit, but not really overdone. Warming, but hides the alcohol more or less.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 750ml bottle
Aroma: Lots of spice, some orange and fruit
Apearance: Golden hazy, white head
Taste: Alcohol, spice, citrus or corriander, light sweet
Palate: light body, average carbonation, long bitter finish
Overall: A bit too much spice in my Tripel. Not bad, but the strong alcohol/warmness and spices makes a decent tripel. Nothing wrong with it, but would prefer a little less spice and a little more mellow booze/alcohol.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent. Aroma is spicy with hints of banana sweetness. Taste is banana, sweetness, faint dough and yeast like esters. Finish is sweet and refreshing with just a hint of the booze. Overall, it’s pretty darn good.

Not bad. Tastes better when closer to room temp than very cold. Like It wish it wasn't so strong
