4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-4-12-
Poured from bottle into chalice glass
Appearance – Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a one finger white head that fades relatively fast to leave a decent level of lacing.
Smell –A big fruity sweet aroma is heavy of banana, apple, and some light citrus. These aromas are matched by a strong yeasty and bready smell. Mixed with these are some nice spice smells as well as an almost candy like sweet smell. The aroma is nice for the triple style and is overall delicious.
Taste – The taste starts out with a bready and citrus flavor. As the taste advances the fruit sweetness intensifies with the citrus getting stronger and joined by some other lighter fruit flavors of apple and pear. At this point the yeasty and banana flavors also come to the tongue. The banana makes the taste even fruitier while the yeasty complements both the bready and fruit flavors quite well. Toward the end of the flavor profile a sugary sweet candy flavor comes to the tongue and is joined by a moderate alcohol flavor and a light spice flavor. The flavors all meld together nicely in the end and produce a sweet and warming taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is average. The average carbonation and thicker body allow the beer to coat the tongue and bath it in all the nice sweet, spice and alcohol flavors.
Overall - A sweet and tasty triple with quite a nice flavor profile and a great feel. This is a good one to try and a fantastic sipping Belgian Triple.

First consumed on tap at Columbus Winter Brewfest. Today poured from a bottle dated 5/13/14 into a snifter golden light orange with a huge light beige head.
Aroma is fruity Belgium yeasts.
Flavor is candied sugar & fruits. Banana bubblegum here. Ever so slight bitterness balances the sweetness.
Highly carbonated. Nicely done. Going to lay 3 bottles of this 6 pack down & drink 6 months apart down the road.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. Bottle share with Myrik, the BA.
This was poured into a chalice and a tulip for me.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange to golden yellow color with a decent one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to a film coating the top of the beer. There was some light speckled lacing gracing the sides of the glass.
The aroma had some Belgian spices over coating a nice sweet sugared fruit/candi like maltiness.
The taste was mainly sweet and spicy through the Belgian spices and the sugary sweetness.
On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium on the body. Sessionability - not really as I found myself sipping this one for the most part. The carbonation seemed fairly good the tripel style.
Overall, good tripel worthy of having again.
