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!

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very sour flavor, I didn’t really care for this beer all that much, a bit too sour for my liking, other than that it seemed very full bodied & well balanced, nice golden color, but just too sour

This is delicious. Lots of banana, with apple, strawberry and booze. Totally brilliant. Holds the alcohol wonderfully. So nicely structured. Tough style to do right, and they’ve come close.

Good triple, nice golden color, sweet flavor, nice head, and two on an empty stomach made me feel groggy.
