Bronze-colored brew,and topped by a nice creamy head. Pleasant honeyed malt and doughy nose with a body that flaunts similar notes, but veers into vegetal flavor territory. Oaty finish. Solid. BuckeyeBoy (9219) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 22, 2017

Pours elegant gold with a small white head into my Malheur chalice. At fridge temperature the aroma is not all that powerful, but there’s definitely some orange peel and some mustiness. The flavor is aggressive, even harsh. Hops come in with a bite and fade out quickly to a relatively high level of sweetness. Almost a St. Germain thing going on, more for the citrus than for the elderflower. The beer tastes, more than feels, hot -- fusels? The oak is there through a mid-sip and not unpleasant but not special. I always enjoy trying new Black Raven concoctions but my search for a top-notch American tripel continues.
Incredible palette with fruit character, pepper notes and spicey oak. Have had it both on tap and by the bottle, the feel is significantly better by the tap. djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a hazy orange with small white head that lasts. The aroma is strong creamsicle, yeast, pure sugar. Medium mouth, pure sugar, yeast, bubblegum, boozy finish, very good.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast/spice with a light hint of banana. Med +body. Flavor is very tripel, tho the banana seems to have escaped. Smooth, mildly hoppy, slight hints of kandi. It’s quite subtle. Maybe a trace of heat around tongue edges - tho that might be hop. Really very nice. Nails the style IMHO. monk191 (2022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2015
A nice and complex tripel. Pours a bright orange with a white head. Smells of citrus, grapefruit, herbs and sage. Taste starts quite fruity sweet, with citrus and strawberry, and then the heavier candi sugar comes in for the finish. Quite nice. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Golden straw in color, frothy white head, little lacing.   Melon and sweet breadiness on the nose.   A touch of Oak on the nose.   More so on the tongue.   Sweet and warming on the backside.   Shows a bit of alcohol.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Warm breading finish, melon like sweetness, with warming alcohol.   Lingering Oak.   Tiz OK, but moreso American like than Belgian. cobaink2 (867) - seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Nice Belgian yeast flavor and sugary but nothing overwhelming. A bit of wood flavor on the back end but not pronounced. Pretty balanced beer like all black raven beers. jsnicholas (726) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2017 Bottle (22oz $8.50): Golden with thin white head. Aroma funky fruit. Taste the same. Somewhat sweet. Pretty good.
Update (06/08/2017): Was 3.2 now 3.5. I think I was a little unfair scoring this before. Liked it more this time. The oak comes through nicely.
