Bottle. Poured a medium hazy amber/orange with a small white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was moderately heavy of resin hops, a mild straw malts and a doughy yeast with a hint of citrus and alcohol. It tasted mildly sweet and slightly malty at first and then became slightly bitter-sweet with a hint of yeast and alcohol at the finish. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall a nice tasty tripel with a complexity of flavor.
Urine yellow color... but with a nice glow. Smell is the typical tripel... clean, Belgian yeast... a hint of malt, banana. Taste is boozy, malt, candied sugar, clove. Thick mouthfeel. Not bad... not great. Ernest (7820) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle (BB Jan 10, 2018). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain), moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of banana and cement. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Highly phenolic, simplistic, and pretty clunky.

12 ounce bottle. Astonishing. probable the best Trippel I have had that was not Belgian. It should be better on tap, right? Where is that bar? The aroma and palate- mouthfeel stood out the most to me.

Pours a clear golden with a loose white head which disappears to a very thin layer quickly......aroma of funk, cabbage, corn.....taste is heavy clove, slight earthy sweetness, slight bittering, corn. jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Golden body with a large, lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, clove, pineapple, floral hops. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Sweet with clove, banana, citrus flavors. Yet there’s a hop bitterness that lingers. Not a classic tripel, by far. Just OK. hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2016

12 oz. bottle with a best by date of 6/20/2017. Clear in color gold within lasting head in a chalice. Aroma is sugar, honey, and weak yeast. EvanFriend (632) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Flavor shows a sweetness from sugar and yeast. Carbonation gives a mild effervescent feel over the pilot. Flavor and aroma run hand in hand. Doesn’t have the huge yeast character that a Belgian would have. It is ok.
A beer that tastes of clove and banana, your usual Belgian yeast flavors, a bit of spiciness. Could use a hint more carbonation if you ask me. Overall, a decent tripel. Not great, but certainly worth drinking again for the price. Best New Jersey beer I’ve had.
