On tap at Big Al’s West Seattle. Pours out golden topped with a small head. Aroma is very complex a surprise to me. Sweet pit fruit, spice, belg yeast, and bread dough. Taste much as the aroma with good sweetness, spice, and yeast. A pretty good triple.

tap. pours a clear dark golden with some nice lace. notes of candied sugar- quitesweet. admit i’m not a huge fan of this style, especially from america. a healthy dose of melons, honey dew, and light booze to round things out. okay, not my favorite. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bright gold, strong thick white head. Juicy honeydew melon aroma. Nice and smooth candied sweetness up front, leads to a balanced peppery midpalate. There the candied sugar catches up and finishes a touch sweet. Somewhat light in body, very easy to drink for what I believe is 9%. Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 3/30/09 On draft at the brewery. Aroma is phenol forward, with light plastics and pepper, very genuine. Appearance is light gold with a slight haze and well maintained white head. Flavor is peppery candy sweetness forward, but not overly sweet, with a faint earthy background from moderate but evident hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slight citrus tang and a medium carb texture. Overall, very well balanced, but with the complexity to satisfy the purists.

Bronzed body with a Brussels laced head. Estery nose with some uric and yeastiness and Belgian funk. So-so yeast-alchol fused body with a yeasty wine tinge. Pretty middling. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Brouwers Cafe. Clear amber with a white head. Yeasty, spicy, light pit fruit aromas. Smooth medium body. Decent enough taste is bready pale malt, spices, and yeasty, with some pit fruit sweetness. Like many New World Tripels this one is too sweet and spicy for my palate. Decent enough to drink, though.
