3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium, lingering head, dusty amber color. Sweet, almost cloying at times, with a surprising hops presence for such a sweet brew. Lively carbonation. The sweetness is a bit much for my personal preference, but this is a well made beer.
Aroma: Medium spicy, pepper, floral. Medium-light banana, bread.
Appearance: Brilliant, golden body. Large, white, rocky head with small to fine bubbles. Effervescent. Great retention with lacing. Small particulates.
Flavour: Medium-high spicy, peppery, fruity, Medium malty sweetness that is well balanced. Medium floral, citrus. Medium-light banana, alcohol, rose. Slightly dry finish with lingering maltiness, spicy.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-low carbonation, creamy, smooth. Light warming.
Overall: Floating particles are disconcerting. The beer has low carbonation and that might add to the feeling of higher viscosity. Otherwise the beer is amazing!
355 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Esme!

Clear golden with a foamy white head. Belgian yeast dominates the smell. The taste is malt-driven with a tropical fruit sweetness, but the beer manages to stay crisp. Drinkable and tasty BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Two 12 oz bottles at my daughter/son-in-laws place in California on 29th Dec 2017. Slight haze to the golden pour, I allowed the sediment to leave each bottle, otherwise the beer was clear until the last tip of the bottles, as I drained them. White crown on each pour. The nose was malty, spiced and yeasty. The taste similar with maltiness, spiciness and yeastiness, add some mixed fruits: Nice. mitchclay2002 (11) - - DEC 22, 2017
Very solid Belgian Trippel. Fruity and slightly sweet with a light and hoppy finish. Easy drinking.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 For it being a 8.5 ABV it goes down very smooth, best Belgium style I’ve had Tide (4565) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Draught at Monk’s Kettle. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, toast, a bit of ripe fruits and earthy notes. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, earthy notes, toast and a bit of ripe fruits. Okay tripel. HourGlass13 (1097) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Pours up clear gold in color with a white head and nice lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is Belgian with candied fruit like apricot and some ripe berries. Some weird flavors here, like a rubber plant. A little boozy. Not horrible but there are a lot better tripples out there. shawnmurphy (666) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours crystal clear golden yellow with a spritz of white head and lacing; moderate visible carbonation rising in glass. Aroma: honey, caramelized white sugar, lemon, floral, orange, bubble gum, barnyard. Flavor: malt-forward (candied sugar, honey) with banana, clove, candied citrus peels, white and black pepper. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, oily, creamy, yet with a dry, clean finish. Very tasty.
