Bomber. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with notes clove, banana, citrus and a bit of hops. Pours clear pale golden colored with a thin white head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with bright banana and citrus flavors with a bit of clove. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a bit of hops. Pretty nice tripel. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of yeast, some fruit and spice. Taste is yeasty and medicinal, can really taste the alcohol in this one. kevinator (2860) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Average tripel. Aroma and flavor of sweet malt, honey, Belgian yeast and grain. Somewhat alcoholic. Light palate and smooth. Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy white head. Sugary pale bread in the nose, wheat, dough, light yeast expression. Big sweet flavor with more pronounced Belgian yeast now, some alcohol, ripe lemon, banana. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming and sugary on the finish with notes of alcohol, doughy wheat bread, mild phenols. Pretty OK tripel. bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours hazy straw into the glass, with an initial fizzy head that diminishes to a tight ring of suds. The nose is of hay, sourdough and light yeasty esters. Melon notes on the tongue are followed by fruity esters, hay, light barnyard grains and finish with pie spices. The mouthfeel is soft and round, medium-bodied with enough carbonation to provide activity on the palate. A very decent Abby Tripel; complex, substantive, and amply provides the necessary complexities for the style. Quite quaffable and yummy. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Appearance: Hazy light golden color with a thin white head that fades quickly.

Aroma: Slight metallic scent, an alcohol aroma, and kind-of a peach aroma.
Taste: There is a faint caramel sweetness that is a bit watered down. There is a light tang and a bit of banana pudding flavor.
Mouthfeel: It has a nice thick coating feeling on the palate. Not quite as dry as I normally get out of a tripel, but nice.
Overall: A decent drink but pulled in too many directions like taffy, and very thin in the flavor department.

Clear pale golden with a moderately appointed off white head.
Nose is straw, citric rind, spice, grapefruit, light caramel.
Taste comprises yeast esters, bitter orange, farmy, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok for style, masks ABV well and more importantly for me doesn’t get overly sweet. 47574xeCD (1338) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
