tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle with some friends on New Years. Pours a lightly hazy gold with thin diminishing head. Nose of clove, pepper, funk. Medium body with a very dry finish. JDBaker11058 (2206) - Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Appearance: bronze-orange, clear at first then increasingly cloudy with subsequent pours; a near-white meringue of a head lasts quite awhile. Aroma: toffee, caramel, vanilla, honey, pepper and clove, with some herbal, lemony hops. Taste: light caramel, pear, honey, light citrus, spicy and peppery hop/yeast note. Finish: lingering yeasty bitterness balanced by a firmly sweet caramel and clove undertone. Notes: A surprising tripel, with a focus seemingly on caramel malts and yeast as opposed to the typical fruity and dry champagne type notes. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Mango colored, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is pepper, spice, pale malt, grass, lighter fruit. Medium bodied, moderate to light alcohol, fairly dry. Not bad. zebra (2136) - Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2013

Bottle shared with Pete and Gail. Goblet. Pours a slightly hazy, champagne looking beer with thick white and foamy head. Some lacing. Aroma of apples, pears, Belgian yeasts and straw. Taste is fruity, slight caramel malts for the sweetness, straw, cereal and some metal. Very VERY dry, carbonated finish. Too dry in my opinion. You do get the hop profile as it turns a little bitter on the finish. Not my favorite Tripel. Jmmyer07 (23) - - SEP 24, 2013
Spot on with this Tripel, spicy, malty, smooth.. alcohol is hidden by a sweet finish maybe a little too sweet but still a great representation of the style especially from a brewery that has only been around since 2010. Pretty Good..... ben4321 (6500) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2013

Aroma: The nose is yeasty and a little sweet, clove, lots of fruit, plenty of spice, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a hazy orange color with an decent sized white head and some lace too
Flavor: The taste feels fairly sweet too, there’s some spice, and a little bit of alcohol as well
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a little sticky, soft-to-average carbonation, and a light heat
I thought this was a plenty solid tripel that clearly leans toward the sweet side. Even though I am not the hugest fan of sweet beers, I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Lightly effervescent, no head, strong belgian yeast flavor, lots of banana, some warmth from the alcohol but not overwhelming. Balanced and drinkable, very crisp. Nose of honey and apples. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pale yellow pour, with malt-forward citrus and just a bit of bite toward the end. A little on the heavy side, but good.
