COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Donít be fooled by Candiís golden appearance. This Belgian Tripel may taste of sugar and spice, but her beguiling introduction is far from nice, flirting with a covert 9.5% ABV. Saaz and Halltertau hops provide a clean, floral aroma with minimal hop bitterness and the soft sweetness of apricot and pear lingers nicely against a dry finish.

bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Cincinnati OH --- 12/19/2016 --- Aroma of malt and spice. Hazy medium amber, off-white head that stays at a steady 1", bands of lace. Taste is malt that flows through medium fizz to light spice (no coriander) and a pronounced taste of pear. Maybe a little clove or mace at the finish. Okay, but not a draw to have another. Fair.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long-lasting, creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is peppery yeast, pale malt, spices and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Herbal hops, alcohol, Belgian yeast, candy sugar, bready malt and peaches fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Aroma is strong candi, oh I get it, Belgian answer herbal dough. Low esters beer. Flavor is similarly gritty and grainy Belgian biscuit. Green dry malty finish. I now may buy more Dominion beer.

AirForceHops (7140) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle from a mix 12 pack, named the "Pinup Pack". Color is a see-through orange / gold color. Thin head retention. Aroma a lot of yeast byproduct of bubblegum, banana and dried fruits.

Flavor is sweetness of pear with light sugar notes, again Belgian yeast showing bubblegum and banana, but not over powering or overly sweet. The alcohol is only lightly noticed. Texture is somewhat dry. Not overly spiced or overly sweet. Pretty much average for the style.

ffaoe (780) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2016
faint malt aroma. gold and clear in color with decent head. taste is slightly more malt than hops, rich caramel malts. finishes abruptly and clean.

3.6
gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Bright honey gold pour topped by a firm rocky beige head. Fruity, yeasty malt nose redolent of peaches or apricots. First sip brings fruit, yeast and alcohol. Warming notes in the throat and belly. The tart sweet apricot notes are balanced by a moderate bitter hoppiness. Finish is cloying, then bitter, then dry.

3.7
BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: A hazy pale apricot amber in color, with a somewhat small off white head. Aroma: Sweet and fruity, with a bit of dough smell, and some clove and banana in the finish. Taste: It starts off with a fairly healthy sweetness - candied sugar really hits the palate strongly. Palate: Has a good fullness to it, yet itís not disgustingly cloying. Overall: A nice tripel, and pretty easy to drink.
