750ml bottle thanks to Jake. Medium golden with a nice one finger white head. Belgian yeast in the aroma, like a good tripel should be. More of the yeast in the taste, a few savory notes, light floral accents. Decent.

DenverLogan (1264) - North Bend, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2017
From a big bottle into a Het Kapittel glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of amber malt, citrus zest and tropical flowers. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of crisp malts, slight sour apples, lemon zest, sourdough bread, tart plums, subtle herbs. Overall bright and refreshing on the tart end but quite different than most tripels and off for the style.

onceblind (10548) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Lightly hazy light golden color with a thin foamy top. Earthy brisk blonde and slightly Belgian spicy nose that’s 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.

2.6
Ernest (7815) - 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.

2.6
3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2016
From bottle it’s 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 it’s 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.

3.8
MaBeer1972 (2162) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2016
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.

3.2
marcus (10668) - 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.
