hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a large, white head. The aroma consists mainly of yeast-driven spiciness - very phenolic, which I cant stand. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced for an American-brewed tripel. There are some fruity esters - banana, pear and apple - but the phenols dont steal the show and rain on my parade. Theres ever a hint of a hop profile going on. Finishes bittersweet - maybe even a touch more bitter than sweet. I despise American-brewed tripels because they are never to style and far too sweet. They make me throw up in my mouth a little, but this one is very drinkable. Trust me when I say that a 3.4 from me, for an American-brewed tripel? Thats about as good as it gets. Im not even all that fond of Belgian-brewed tripels. Its just not a style I enjoy. Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is fruity, mango and white fruits, hints of Belgian yeast and sugars. Flavor is quite sweet, rather boozy, yeasty but with loads of tropical fruitiness going on as well. Really nice, silky mouthfeel, softly carbonated and long sweet yeasty finish. Quite nice.

ChadPolenz (1763) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 26C Belgian Tripel

AROMA: Bananas ester with American hop citrusy aromatics. Faint pepper. No alcohol. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Hazy shade of yellow maize. Large white froth laces very well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Phelonic and peppery throughout (in a good way). Flavors are more likely from American hops than yeast esters. Not much banana or citrus in the flavor, oddly enough. Chewy pilsner malt base is supportive but not sweet. Palette is extremely spicy even though there are no additives to it. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light bodied with almost no alcohol warmth (flavor comes through as spicy phenols). Very bubbly and crisp like champagne. Dry finish. Great meal accompaniment. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: I really enjoy the spicy character here but was hoping for more fruity flavors. Impressive for an American version using a non-traditional recipe. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 41/50

bkurtz (1068) - MOROCCO - JUL 23, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small head for a triple. Bubblegum and mango aromas. Nice mouthfeel and has the taste of a Belgian triple, but with a very warming alcohol finish, interesting.

zoucrew102 (1625) - - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle, bought in Florida. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with notes of clove, banana and pear. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with spicy Belgian yeast flavors as well as clove notes as well. Finishes smooth with banana and pear fruity flavors with the spicy Belgian yeast returning at the end to linger on the palate. Very nice trippel.
