4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear until the yeast pour, deep golden color with thin head and lace. Yeasty aroma with sweet malt, bit of banana, candied sugars, alcohol and others. Medium bodied,creamy carbonation, very lush with bananas, sweet candy, yeast and zippy alcohol in a very tight and balanced package. Has an incredible vinous quality that mingles with the candied sugar and yeast wonderfully. Awesome triple.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an average trippel, not outstanding. The flavor is somewhat thin, but it goes down pretty easily. Golden color, somewhat cloudy, with a lasting, white head. Smells like candy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, deep golden yellow color with a small, white head that rapidly disipates. It has a strongly malty, nutty aroma with a tinge of alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty and nutty with hints of yeast, fruit, and alcohol. Overall a decent tripel, though not quite up to par as some of it's Belgian, and even American, cousins.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a rather bland tripel. Thin bodied, watery. There are some citrus/fruit notes, but the finish is a whole lot of nothing. A little spice and well masked abv make it an easy drink, but not a very interesting one.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Copper color. Fruity aroma. Spicy malt flavor. Not overly carbonated. A gental mouthfeel. Overall this belgian triiple is very true to its style, which is hard to do in america. I really enjoyed this ale and recommend it for others! Cheers

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big ass rocky white head that leaves a nice lace till the end.Hazy gold color. Lots of carbonation.Spicey, lemony,yeasty aroma. Fruity flavors of apples and citrus.Slight oxydation that doesnt take away from this medium bodied brew.Very alive on the tongue, spritsy.Finishes dry leaving a warm sensation in the back of your mouth. Nice brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden brown color with just a thin edge head. Minimal yeasty and spicy nose. Caramel/toffee sweetness balanced somewhat by a spicy and peppery character. Pretty thick body with a clean finish. Not very impressive, but could possibly improve over time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
My bottle was labeled Belgian Style Trippel with no reference to Merry Monks. Poured a hazy amber/orange with a lacy white head.Spicy yeast nose.A little tropical fruit sweetness is the first thing that strikes me.Mango I think. Has some spicy/peppery edge to it also.Abv is hidden expertly.Has a very plush mouthfeel to it.A good american trippel.
