Right from the pour, I knew this was going to be good. Huge fluffy head, lasts a while too. Buttery, herbal aroma, right on target. One of the better tripels I’ve had in a while, and from the USA to boot! Good all around.... ketchepillar (1199) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bomber. Nicely spicy and simple but good yeast character. Pretty dry. Carbonation is a little low for a tripel.

A tripel. Nothing more, nothing less. If you’ve had many tripels, you’ve had this before. From large bottle with considerable amounts of sediment. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Apple-ish fruit, earthy, lightly sweet aroma. Earthy yeast and sweet malt flavor; a little fruit. Moderate bitterness. Seems really sweet for the style--but not super cloying.

1 qt, 0.815 oz giant swingtop bottle. The inside of the bottleneck on this has a film of gunk in it...not cool. Pours hazy yellow with a nice white pillowy head with great retention. Aroma is cloying sweet, dough, overripe bananas. Taste is also cloyingly sweet. This is a somewhat old bottle (I don’t see a date or vintage, but the price sticker says 2012, so it should still be good, I would think). I didn’t give this a high score, but I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt that this is better fresh and not giving it even worse than a 2.2 score. Two year old tripels should still be just fine if brewed right! landisbrewery (2) - Draper, Utah, USA - JUL 24, 2013 does not count
I purchased the large quart bottle with pop cap. The beer has the expected aggressive white head of the style, but it drops out too fast. The beer has a nice golden yellow color that is cloudy. The taste is too sweet for the style, and not very complex. Hints of light fruit are overpowered by the sugar flavor. There’s a hint of spiciness, maybe pepper. There’s not the typical crisp bite of Belgian yeast, but it does break through a little in the after taste. It could be that the beer I drank is too young; this is a bottle conditioned beer. I’d expect over time for the head to develop and the sweetness to fade.
The beer is not to style, but it is a gentle trippel. A bit too sweet though. Travlr (25269) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Giant bottle from Whole Foods P Street. Clear golden color, medium fluffy white head. Aroma of pear, peach, spice. Taste has sweet apples and spice. Not bad. Sledutah (7729) - Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2013

Clear golden with a medium sized white head
Aroma of mild malts, bready and citrus. Flavor of sweet malts and toast
This was an ok tripel. Yeasty with a light appearance. Fruit and citrus on the nose. Dry aftertaste with a nice mouthfeel. Winchell brought this in SLC and brought it back to Lawrence in 2013.
