tap at blue monk pours lovely golden hue capped by a small white head with good retention. light lacing is left behind. Nose and taste is dominated by grass and flower held together well by biscuit and light honey like caramel. The ABV is masked in this full head smashing beer. Boom!!!
2015 dry hopped tripel from 75l bottle. Golden color with a light white head. Citrus hops yeast aroma. Carbonated light body. Dulled flavor of hops and citrus.

Pour on tap, clear golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of earth, grass, herbal notes into some grain, biscuit, touch of white fruit into some sweet sugary malt. Taste was a mix of white fruit, sugary biscuit, vanilla, some honey into some grass, slight herbs, finishing sweet, slightly bitter. slowrunner77 (13231) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
2012: as with just about everything they do, solid across the board. vibrant fruity aroma with a strong spicy yeast quality following in the flavor, and just a hint of funk and alcohol. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - AUG 4, 2014

Served on tap in a snifter
Appearance –Pours a beautiful medium orange- amber color with a light haze and a one half finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to give a nice level of lacing
Smell – The smell is heaviest of yeast and strong notes of a lemon citrus. Mixed with these are some lighter sweet notes of orange and a candied sugar smell.
Taste – The beer starts with some of the sweeter flavors depicted in the nose along with a bready base. The sweetness is largely of a orange taste, but there are hints of candied sugar in there as well. As the taste advances however some of the sweetness fades. Some of the lemon citrus flavors as well as hints of the yeast hit the tongue. The light lemon hop and lemongrass flavor bitter the beer slightly. The orange sweetness is almost completely gone more toward the end, but the candied sugar sweetness gets stronger. At the very end of the taste there is a slight alcohol burn which in overall leaves a rather satisfyingly light warming, sweet, and somewhat sour candy flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that runs the middle of the road. Very appropriate for the style and quite refreshing due to the carbonation, but with the creaminess the taste still really still sinks into the tongue.
Overall – This is a fantastic and wonderful brew. It has a wonderful taste and feel. Well done!!!

The fact that this is called an Abbey Tripel made me expect much, much more from it. If you’ve ever had Blue Moon Belgian White, then you’ve had this.

Draft. A lighter-bodied beer, some yeast spice, fruits and malts. Basic but drinkable. RABinCO (1511) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a nice white head. Grassy, sugary aroma. Pleasant slightly tart taste with a good dose of sugar without being overly sweet. Finishes nice and crisp. SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
