3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was at first sort of Brett-witty, and then it turned towards having an artificial grape sort of thing. OK label, bomber. Very clear, pale yellow, with a clingy white head. Tangy, fruity, fermented fruit/winey notes. Decently bittered, warming. Has some complexity, has some brutality. I don’t know what it is, but there’s this grape soda thing that keeps cropping up at odd points in the flavor profile and the finish. Medium body. A tanginess that coats the tongue - it’s not quite the finish, but it’s a little adhesive. Gets cidery as it warms. This has its strengths and flaws, but at $2/bomber on fire sale, this was a slam dunk. Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah. New Year’s Eve Eve 2014.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spiced, coriander-touched aroma. Hazy appearance, mostly copper with thin head. Taste is boozy, strong, totally bananas. Palate wraps reasonably thin. Decent beer, nothing like a quality Belgian tripel but it’ll do.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honestly bought due to price point/abv combo. Scent is more mineral than I would want with some of the ripe fruits and sweet caramel. Taste shows more bright ripe fruits, quite sweet, not too shabby. Almost a bit adjuncty to be a top tier tripel.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
"a pretty unassuming trippel. as the tandem was pretty good, i was looking forward to this, but the aroma, while of the usual stuff, is pretty weak, as is the body for a stronger beer. the flavor was average at best."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber.
Cloudy dark golden with a tight but rapidly dissipating head. Active carbonation, light lacing.
Pale malt in the aroma, as well as some light banana, and some bubblegum.
Flavor is sweet up front, candi sugar, fruit, yeast, followed by hoppy bitterness in the middle, and a sweet finish.
A little too sweet for my liking in a trippel,
