pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a cloudy gold with a spirited four fingers of soft foamy head. Recedes slowly leaving behind lots of clinging lace.This tripel is down to brass tacks with a sweet yeast nose, sweet fruit, banana and some floral and spice from the understated hops. A little alcohol as well. On the nose it lacks brightness and elan. Malt is subtle and doesn’t over contribute leaving an earthiness underneath. On the palate it’s smooth and buttery but leaves a touch bitter and with more of an alcohol taste than there really should be. It’s a good strong tripel but it felt like it was lacking in refinement and luster.

Jado (635) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2015
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a tightly packed white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of baked apple, banana, honey, lemon, cinnamon, pepper and orange. Taste is soft apple, banana and pear at first before a nicely rounded burnt orange and spice bitterness emerges. A melange of citrus, cinnamon, nutmeg, bubblegum and more apple pushes through at the end. Full mouth feel and a lingering spicy aftertaste. Excellent.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orangish-yellow head. A complex, yet delightful blend of fruity flavors with a caramel/spicey finish. Unique combination of flavors and a joy to drink.

Good yes. Great no. Many better triples exist and I'm shocked at how high a score this has. The flavor is flat in comparison to better breweries such as Great Divide or Sierra Nevada. Get a single, or try it when you see it on draft, and keep it moving. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

SG111 (446) - New York, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottled. Best by 07/24/17. Pours golden yellow, big white head. Aroma is very traditional Belgian Tripel: clove, lemon peel, banana, esters, traditional Belgian spices. I will say though the esters are more subdued and the citrus and hops are heavier. Flavor is fairly typical, clove, bit of wheat, esters but there are more hops and citrus in this than you would find in most. Slight spice in the finish. Not spicy, but a distinct spice character. Otherwise, not really any different than most tripels but quite good.

danielecamo (739) - ITALY - MAY 7, 2015
In bottiglia. Piacevole sorpresa. Aroma speziato, fenolico, coriandolo, leggere pepato, crosta di pane. al palato corpo pieno ma bevuta relativamente semplice e snella. al palato corrispondenza aromatica e finale con la giusta secchezza e un tocco speziate ed erbaceo

Spicy Belgian wheat phenolic aroma. Poured gold and cloudy. More than just haze. Good Belgian style. Spice character was pretty big.

Mep3222 (797) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Nice Belgian candy sugar aroma with Belgian yeasty ness, some banana and spice. Sweet finish but with spiciness. Very nice Belgian triple. Really all that you could ask for in a triple. Candy sugar is noticeable as it should be, but all just works well with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Crowbar
Pale, creamy white head. Smell of malts, hay, hints of grass and grain. Medium to heavy sweet, quite malty and not all that easy to drink. Hay and hops dominate in the finish, which is moderate bitter
