Lightly hazy light golden color with a thin foamy top. Earthy brisk blonde and slightly Belgian spicy nose thats bready and floral. Crisp boozy and slightly grainy and honeyed, with a crisp bready and Belgian peppery ester and a slightly bitter floral finish. Okay. Standard and nonchalant.

Ernest (7555) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is lightly to moderately yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of apple sauce, banana, candy sugar, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2016
From bottle its lightly hazed pale gold with a sticky head. Odd aroma is yeasty, kind of soapy, game-y (wet dog hair), fruity with orange and apricot qualities. Malt is starchy and porridge-like, oat-like even. In the mouth its sweet, medium-bodied, chewy, kind of gritty/rough, finishing syrupy and sweet. Pretty clunky beer, nothing seems clear, kind of BO-like at times, muddled.

On tap in Reno. Served in a snifter. Slightly cloudy light golden color. Little to no head. Very nice fruity bread nose and flavors. Some spice in the middle. Long dry fruity bitter finish.

marcus (9837) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 12, 2016
On tap at Brasserie Saint James Reno. Pours bright gold with a modest white head and a floral fruity aroma. There is a fairly bitter pale malt flavor with a dry finish. No hint of Belgian yeast.

nickd717 (4521) - Sofia, BULGARIA - JUN 19, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy bright golden color with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, lemon, orange, chalk, floral notes, honey. Flavor is mildly sweet, balanced, floral, mildly hoppy finish. Medium bodied with average carb, quite nice on the finish. Enjoyable.

UXO (1752) - CANADA - SEP 8, 2015
Appearance: clear medium gold with one finger of dense white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone fruit, sweet malt and honey, bready yeast, banana, floral. (6/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, mild bitter, light pepper. (6/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lightly spicy finish. (3/5) Not bad, but a bit sweeter than Id prefer. I suspect a fair bit of that is the high ABV, which also comes through as a warming in the finish and a slight harshness at the back of the throat. The stone fruit and apple also start to taste a little browned as the bottle progresses and the hop character fades. Mind you, that description probably sounds a bit more negative than I intended - ultimately this is a decent, if unremarkable, tripel. (13/20)

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Another straightforward brew that is quite prototypical of the style. As such, its not a standout, but solid and enjoyable. Floral and spicy, with some bubblegum and dough in the finish."

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, floral hops, mild spicy notes, some alcohol comes through. Some sweet malts cut the alcohol. Not bad, but not my favorite from these guys.
