4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gotta pour this thing slooooowww. Looks beautiful, a cloudy dark gold with an inceasant foamy head. Bananas, sour elements, wheat, some spice and nutty malt come to the nose. Flavoris maltier than expected, with some slight caramel notes and earthy nuttiness. The finish continues this progression into a spicy, very dry, and surprisingly hoppy finish (not real hoppy, but it’s there). Good moutfeel, lively carbonation fits right in. Very good. I never was a big fan of tripels, but this beer makes me want to give some more of them a try, and revist ones I haven’t had in a while. Very nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured a cloudy pale straw color with a full and lasting head. Aroma is interesting and is only good after a fresh pour or swirling the glass. Earthy, vanilla, and spice, such a wonderful blend of spice. Some ginger, coriander, cardamom, and pepper, but so gentle that they are hard to detect. There is also a background of musty green vegtables that builds a complex depth to the beer. Flavor Is similar to the aroma though more intense. The spice character really comes out. There is an earthiness that reminds me of a saison. Some banana and other fruit flavor come through into the flavor profile but in subdued amounts. This beer has a rich maltiness but is delightfully crisp and refreshing. There is also a bit of hops in the finish that i am picking up as i am typing. Wonderful beer, I am surprised it took me this long to try this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A fine pick for my rating #500. Only a small pop on the cork. Poured lightly hazy orange with a small sudsy white head. The aroma is very earthy with lots of sharp spice. It is drier than most tripels and has some dry vineous aspects. Medium / full body with a good amount of carbonation. Starts with a slick sweetness that is quickly taken over by a peppery spice, yeast and some barnyard aspects. The finish has a sharp spicy side that comes in. The finish starts off slightly astringent, but mellows quickly and brings in some spicy hops. Further down the bottle when the yeast starts pouring into the glass the taste gets smoother and gains some citrus taste. Excellent world class beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours bright golden with a medium sized white foamy head. Aroma of apples, tart cherries, sweet fruity yeasty, and bubble gum. Taste is candied fruits and cotton candy. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied and slightly sticky with livley carbonation. Lots of fruity zing and yeasty bite. Quite enjoyable, if a bit on the heavy side.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly murky yellow body with characteristically thick off white head. Smells malty, citrusy, and a bit spicy. Tastes citrusy, sweet, somewhat piney. Very tasty. Medium-to-full bodied. Not my favorite tripel, but a very good one anyway.
