1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice head. Initially like a yesty Unibroue, but then Sour and acidic. Not finishable. Too dry, too carbonated. cloves are shocking to palate. Lemongrass does only sour it further. Medicinal.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber-orange; good off-white head. Banana, bubblegum esters abundant in the nose, more than in most German Weizens! Soft sweet taste with sourish background, again completely ester, AND diacetyl. Fruity, seems not completely fermented. If this is supposed to be a triple - for chrissakes, then it ought to have been fully attenuated! Finish yields rosewater. Rather full-bodied with restsugars, well carbonated. Iím underawed. Depending on what it was supposed to be, agreed, but it is underattenuated under any circumstance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 12oz bottle tasted along side Prophecy at Zenoís in State College, PA. Clear amber yellow color. Has the proper nose of a tripel, with sweet sugars and spicy, estery yeast notes. Crisp, fresh tasting, properly bitter and mildly dry. Very fizzy, full of the Weyerbacher yeast, which I really donít care for, but otherwise and OK beer. Not one of the best.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dry bread flour on crusty crumbs...A citrusy shampoo perfume dominates this light body...Does not taste its strength and could be a very deceptive yet delectable summer evening brew...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good triple. Belgian dubbels and triples are not my favorite styles, but I have to commend Weyerbacher on this brew. It's super malty, very alcoholic, and has overtones of citrus, yeast, sugar candy, and riesling. I found it to be too sweet and a little cloying, but I respect what they have accomplished with this one. I laid 6 down, and I will re-rate after a year or so.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden yellow body, smallish white head. Sweet alcohol dominates the aroma. In the flavour, sweet malt gives way to a pushy dry alcohol. Touch of fruitness. Average palate. Disappointing, since I have high hopes for Weyerbacher stuff. Iíd rather have a Blithering Idiot though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp golden appearance with a sweet malty nose and some oak. Body is semi-robust with good yeast profile. Respectably smooth. A pretty good clone of a great Belgian style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle at Capital Ale House Downtown. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a large head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is bready and yeasty with huge citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light peppery spice also. Full bodied. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 A Sim rate (bottle from somewhere in Brooklyn):
Tangy, citric fruity aroma that smells like pear drops and resinous hops. Pleasant enough, though a bit alcoholic. Nice golden amber colour but with a non-existant head. Seriously, I poured it and wiith hardcore effervescence the bubbles quickly disappeared. Very alcoholiic flavour, but again fruity, sweet and quite nice. Bizarre palate that fizzes on your tongue despite its flat appearance. Nicely thick and syrupy due to the alcohol.
