Pours a golden body. There’s a good bit of spice in the aroma and a bit of sweetness. Honey makes up much of the malt profile.

Huge honey smell. Huge honey taste. Slightly dryish finish. Sweet. Honey. Sweet. Is this a mead? Are you sure? Light body and sweetness is focused instead of being sugary like in Karmeliet. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of honey here! Some spiciness behind the sweetness. Murky honey gold with a small head. Moderate to heavy sweetness with light acidity upfront shifts to a moderately sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic finish. Medium body, oily/sticky texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: Not quite up to par for Weyerbacher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic belgian spicey flavor with no head at all and an off orange color. I can’t believe this has 9.3% alcohol. It can hardly be detected at all. Very nice for the style. Have one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold with a thin head that dissapears quickly. Some lacing. Aroma is bountiful with citrus and malts. Spices come through faintly with clove and coriander. Lemon and banana esters with a light grassiness. Small traces of alcohol. Coriander comes out like mad in the flavor. The bittering hops make themselves known here as well. There is a lot of citrus here as well. The malts are slightly roasty and caramel is apparent. Alcohol is sticking its nose out again. Fuzzy palate with a nice blend of hops and malts with a good backing of esters in the tail followed with alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a hazy golden peach color witha fizzy white head that is rather short lived. Thin spotty lacing. A musty earth aroma that has note of apricot, peach and a bit of butterscotch.
Flavor is more fruity, and spicy and has a nice sour touch as well. That distinctive Belgian yeast brings the slightly musty barnyard taste but not so much as others of the style. After only the first couple ounces this is really growing on me. Finish and feel is a bit chalky, maybe I poured too much of it. No bitterness at the end. Very pleasant. Thanks Buck Dich for the bottle

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly cloudy medium golden with a modestly retained off white head. Aroma is yeasty and much more hoppy with less fruit than I expected for this style. Also a little dust note. The initial flavor is indeed hoppy, but the finish is all fruit. Lots of white raisins and some nice dryness too. A nice tripel and another good beer from Weyerbacher. They are quite the brewery!! Thanks DocLock!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber/golden color, light lacing and fairly nice head. The nose has some moderate esters with definate notes of candi sugar and spices with that nice hoppy dry tripelish bite. The flavor has a bit of alcohol kick to it with quite a sweet dose of apricot syrup. Finishes tart and fairly clean. A nice bodied triple, not the best but definately up there with some of the better ones. I think it could be a bit less sweet. Thanks DocLock!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a medium amber color with a thin white head which dissipated quickly but did leave a nice level of lacing around the glass throughout this beer (some with coaxing). The aroma is heavily citrusy, sugary, highly alcoholic, and apricoty. Totally alcohol and fruits! The flavor is medium bodied, sticky, and overwhelmingly alcoholic. Some mild burn towards the finish, alcohol is not very well hidden or masked. Sticky, obtrusive peach and citrus combined with a cotton candy maple syrup sugaryness. Very lopsided beer, little to no bittering qualities. Completely offensive finish, almost intolderably alcoholic and burning at times. Sticky sticky sticky! Not a fan of this beer....
