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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice golden color but no head. Probably due to the lack of carbination. Overall a decent example of a triple not great but good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 12oz bottle: A bit of a golden hue, with a little cloudiness. Some hints of bread, banana and clove in the nose. Tastes are very similar to the aroma. The taste is pretty much in line with other tripels. A good brew, but just a little lacking in comparison to other Belgian or domestic tripels. Allagash or Golden Monkey are much better. Duvel is still the king!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well another good brew by Weyerbacher, this golden colored ale has a smooth fruity smell, with hint of peaches and oranges. Its taste is smooth and fruity, but I felt is was a little to bubbly, or carbonated, I am really unsure of why it tasted like that, but I will a have a few more tonight and report any changes in my opinion in the morning.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Labeled Belgian Style Trippel) Opaque orange with minimal head. Aroma is sugar cane, banana and spice/yeast. Flavor is sweet and malty, but bitterness in the swallow makes for good balance. A bit too much carbonation, and a hint of astringency in the aftertaste are the only drawbacks. Hides the alcohol exceptionally well.
