3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The smell is pleasant. The head tastes of apples and the first taste of the beer itself is immediately crisp and apple-filled. The body of the flavor recalls alcoholic ciders, with a touch of bitterness. Not too much aftertaste, but overall a great beer.
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 Pours bronze with little head; aromas of honey and melon; the sweet palate immediately identifies itself as an American variant. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 26, 2017
An outstanding tripel, especially coming from outside Belgium. Tried for the first time in 2011 in Alaska when it still had its other name. Flavorful and slick on the tongue. Lots of coriander and citrus. Well balanced. MattH (910) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Poured from an offensive looking can.
Imagine a beer company allowing a can to be produced with art work depicting a naked woman throwing her underwear to the skies while riding on a reindeer. Blitzen? Nevertheless, twelve ounce can cost $3.25, which helped to ease the outrage I felt regarding the can. Pour is dark orange. Aroma is spicy with some nutmeg, clove, light bubblegum, orange and coriander. Flavor is fairly dry, slightly phenolic, and a little bitter. Body and level of carbonation are medium. I thought it was good, but for me it was not a top Tripel. bytemesis (9240) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 8, 2017

Can at Kantishna. Hazy caramel color. Smells of spice and banana. Spiced flavor, A tad flat. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2016
From the can at the bar of the Denali Back Country Lodge poured a brownish/gold brew with a white head. Full bodied and malty like you’d expect from a triple. I liked it.

Shared bomber poured to snifters displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of off white head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light spice as coriander, light yeastiness with subtle hints of banana & vanilla, and citrusy esters highlighting mandarin orange & zest. The taste followed similarly, contributing low bitterness and complementary booze. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation. Appreciate the tweaking & metamorphosis. Quite tasty! Thanks Mark for the contribution to the session! IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUL 8, 2016
A clear deep amber color with a short lived off-white head. Dried orange peel, Allspice, bubblegum, light yeast, dusty. Sweet up front, wow, really too sweet. Treacle, bubblegum, slick feel, has a hint of bitterness in the follow, seems a tad thin, it’s a good beer, a bit too sweet for me and lacks the layers of complexity found in the top echelon of Belgian Ales. jb (3414) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Not a fan of this style but loved this. Orange and hazy. Spicy and fruity. Not super boozy. Thick syrupy feel. Can from Justin. Oh yeah great can art.
