Fruity with an effervescent quality. Fuller flavor as the beer warms up but develops a strong after taste if allowed to warm up too much.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’d had this ten or so years ago, but don’t remember what I thought about it, now I see it as a strong example of Belgian Tripel/Quad as (expensive) malt liquor, minus the chemical aspects in aroma & flavor. I smell sugar, corn and belgian gas. Golden yellow no head. Flavors of vanilla, peach, sugar and alcohol. thin in the mouth. sweet finish,

12 oz. bottle to tulip. Belgian yeast is strong in the aroma. Sugar cane, banana, spice and yeast dominate the taste. Palate is medium bodied. The 9.3% is hidden very well. Well balanced beer here. Overall, a wonderful interpretation of the style. Will get again.

Teku glass. Bottle. Golden/burnt orange with very thin, white head which dissapears very quickly. Very yeasty, fruity and spicey. Taste is very malty (dough, belgian candy sugar), coriander, pepper, sweet floral notes. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, finish is semi-sweet, strong alcohol warmth. In overall very average tripel

No aroma at first, if you get nose right up to head there’s a nice banana and bubblegum smell. Nice mellow burn with sweet brandy flavor. Light thin texture. Very very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber, cloudy, dense and lasting mousse.
Medium body, moderate flavor, very hot and lean mouthfeel, avg length.
Sweet but well balanced by acidity, very low bitterness.
Alcoholic, fruity rather simple flavor, pineapple, yeasty.
Not my favorite in the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is like white bread, very yeasty, with some sweet cereal, lychee, and a touch of bitter hay/dry grass. Appears clear gold, nice streams of bubbles, not much fizz, no lace. Tastes like bread with some peachy-apple jam atop. Palate is a little watery but has some fizz. Overall, nice, a bit simple compared to other Belgians tripels, but it hides the alcohol well.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wegmans in Syracuse. Poured cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. Golden/orange/amber appearance. Aroma is yeasty with clove and dough, and a little tart. Taste is doughy, bready, more cloves and classic Belgian yeast taste. Malty, crisp and effervescent finish. The alcohol is well hidden! Overall great Belgian trippel.
