No aroma at first, if you get nose right up to head there’s a nice banana and bubblegum smell. Nice mellow burn with sweet brandy flavor. Light thin texture. Very very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber, cloudy, dense and lasting mousse.
Medium body, moderate flavor, very hot and lean mouthfeel, avg length.
Sweet but well balanced by acidity, very low bitterness.
Alcoholic, fruity rather simple flavor, pineapple, yeasty.
Not my favorite in the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is like white bread, very yeasty, with some sweet cereal, lychee, and a touch of bitter hay/dry grass. Appears clear gold, nice streams of bubbles, not much fizz, no lace. Tastes like bread with some peachy-apple jam atop. Palate is a little watery but has some fizz. Overall, nice, a bit simple compared to other Belgians tripels, but it hides the alcohol well.

White weak head. Amber colour. Aroma is malty, fruity (citrus, apple and apricot) with light spicy notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (apricot and peach), ending in a fruity (apricot jam) finish. Medium bodied.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
