3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Rating #7,800) Growler... Mostly clear golden ale with a small, flimsy, white head. The aromatic highlights include juicy peach, spicy, floral, grassy hops and a hint of bread dough. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor offers sweet cookie and doughy malts balanced nicely by spicy, floral, tropical fruit bitterness. Finishes crisp and bittersweet with a snappy, grassy hop bite. Warming, but not boozy. This is the way tripels are supposed to make me feelÖ happy - enlightened - excited about beer. Other than Avery Nineteen, this is the first tripel I have actually enjoyed drinking for as long as I can remember. Westbrook nails another style... a style I normally despise. Itís official; Iím a Westbrook fan boy. Big-time thanks to Elliesbrown for providing the growler!

Growler from Greenville, poured a dark yellow color with araoms of grassy/floral hops with some light peach, and dough added to it. Flvaors atre the same. light fruit followed by some floral and grassyhops, light booziness in the aftertaste but not overwhelming. Nice beer overall.
