Bottle: Thanks to Rsamayoa. First tasting from Marin Brewery, Triple Belgian sounds good, too good to be true. Simple, sweet, high alcohol presence.
Tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala.
Pours cleae yellow.
Ah, here come the Belgians. A Triple indeed, sweet, but rather unrefined.
Body is medium, also sweet, with a low bitterness and a lively carbonation, but it’s not adding up.
Candy palate, too long for its flavours.
Quite okay. Theydon_Bois (19730) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 29/01/16.

Taste comprises Belgian yeast esters, straw, caramel, sweet licks.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming boost in the close.

On tap @ brewpub during RateBeer weekend, January 2016. Light, hazy yellow-orange appearance with a nice sized white head. Banana, peppercorn, citrus, spices, clove, pepper. Moderate light body. Moderate high sweetness and moderate bitterness. Decent. phaleslu (10328) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Draft at the brewpub, served in a flight. Pours a clear gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Sugary, with pale and sweet malts, hay, banana, wheat, and clove. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Overly sweet and one-dimensional. Not bad, but lacks complexity.

[1/29/16] Draught at Marin Brewing in Larkspur. Clear golden. Aroma of fruity esters and light spiciness. Sweetish flavor with malt, fruitiness, and a bit of spiciness. Medium-bodied. JulienHuxley (5845) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Yeasty aroma, belgian tripel, spicy, light booze, grainy, fresh bready notes. Taste is lemony, grainy, nice classic tripel flavor. Palate is med bodied, dry, with good carbonation. Reminds me (slightly) of tripel karmeliet, good stuff. VsXsV (4467) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016

Draft at source. Very perfumey nose almost like a wit. Taste is full of coriander. This is like an imperial wit. Weird. mR_fr0g (12574) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Draft at the Marin brewing company larkspur. Clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting white froth. Aroma is decent clean Belgian yeast, some spicy hop, coriander, orange. Flavour is composed of quite sweet grains, orange and spicy hop, hint of medicinal hop, a bit too sweet. Palate is semi sweet, highish carbonation, semi drying spicy finish. OK triple, but what is the point in a triple.
