4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wegmans in Syracuse. Poured cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. Golden/orange/amber appearance. Aroma is yeasty with clove and dough, and a little tart. Taste is doughy, bready, more cloves and classic Belgian yeast taste. Malty, crisp and effervescent finish. The alcohol is well hidden! Overall great Belgian trippel.

Light golden color with a thick head. Smells a bit sour, it’s possible that it turned, as there was a bit of sediment

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a one inch frothy white head that slowly faded to a thin covering. The nose is sweet and fruity with candi sugar, bready malt, light yeastiness, lighter notes of pear and alcohol. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes in the style, of which I’m not that huge a fan of as a whole. Sweet and fruity with a prominent alcohol warmth on the finish. Medium to full bodied and a bit chewy with fizzy active carbonation. Meh, probably my least favorite beer from Weyerbacher’s standard line-up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Edison Ale House, Newark, NJ; 10 oz
Cloudy golden color with small compact head. I expected more from Weyerbacher, but this is just one more sterile American attempt at Belgian styles, resulting in a boozy sweet beer, with strong bubblegum character, and relatively low bitterness; impression of pond water.
I’m not impressed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into pint glass.
Aroma- A very sweet aroma of malt and fruit.
Appearance- A darker shade of gold with a small white head.
Taste- Has a very sweet initial flavor of fruit, the alcohol is well disguised and I enjoyed the additional spices tossed in.
Palate- this is a medium bodied beer with mild carbonation. Has a mildly creamy texture that suits the flavor.
Overall- A pretty good beer, I think this is a good American take on a tripel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden color with short-lived white head. Aroma is yeast, fruit, and faint cider. Light body with high carbonation. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a little funkiness. The high alcohol content is pretty well hidden. Admittedly not my favorite style but a nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 11/05/16. The pour is a cloudy, heady, medium amber-orange color. The nose has a lot of variety including Belgian toasted malts, Belgian sugar, pear, pepper, coriander, and a some feint alcohol. Medium to bold body with an alcohol burn that coats my throat. The taste brings out the peppery-spice characters along with the toasted mall underbelly. Assertive bitterness to the end.
