Good but not great. I prefer Ye Olde Golden Monkey. Monks is a little thinner, a little lacking in the flavor department. Still a good brew, and I love this style, but not in the top tier of tripels.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I have said it before " if only this promising domestic brew could taste as well as it smells." Very nice promising aroma but a disappointing palate and little flavor to speak of. I must hand it to them for creating a high alcoholic beverage tthat tastes almost like water. I would nickname this the bud of tripels just a bad imitation. No head and very light.

Bottle at Cooperstown. Pale clear yellow, white head. Phenolic pleasant aroma, with candied notes. Malty flavor with some candi and hops. Smooth and decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice golden/orange color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was malty and fruity with a nice sweetness coming through.Sort of sweet and lightly sour upfront with a nice fruit side to it.Nice mild malt side and a bit of yeast mixed in there as well,very nice carbonation that goes well with the flavors.The after taste is fruity with a slight bitterness.Not a bad brew at all well worth trying again.

weird watermelon aroma, quite sweet, tastes of honey on white bread, not a lot of other flavours, would like to try an aged version

Pours a nice dark golden color. The carbonation is light not as heavy as many other triples. The head is not robust but leaves a nice lacing. The sweet taste is of this beer tastes very well and makes this beer unique in it’s own way.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a fruity vinous alcohol smell. Light hazy golden. The alcohol is felt on the way down. Mainly sweet taste with some bitterness in the back. This is a darn good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a crystal clear golden color with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma of raw yeast, bandage, some banana and light citrus as well. Sweet and yeasty, some sweet bubblegum, pepper, lightly hopped with a dry alcoholic finish. The mouthfeel was creamy, full, and bubbly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorites from this brewer. Cloudy medium gold, OK head. Aroma of bread, mixed fruit, yeast. Candy sugar flavors laced with a complex juicy-fruit gum character. Nice yeastiness as well. Sweet, but this has depth and is quite tasty and drinkable. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty overwhelmingly sweet, very little spiciness. Nice body. Chalky, strange (herbal hoppy?) aftertaste.
