This wasn’t as good as I was expecting. A dry finish and a very light palate with too strong of a spice character. adamhorror (84) - USA - MAR 16, 2013
Aroma is sweet, floral, slight cinnamon, mango and banana. Head is white. Very active carbonation, champagne-like. Taste is sweet, mild yeast, banana, bitter-hoppiness. Palate is banana, bittersweet, mango.

It’s weird Sammy usually puts out good stuff. I don’t get this? What were they going for? The alcohol is too overwhelming and takes away from the spices that are the trademark of all Sammy brews. I love brews, but with this it is almost like you’re drinking a cocktail! And the crazy thing is I drank a brew from the Ska. Brewing Co. with the same ABV and it was much more refreshing!

How many characters does one need for "eh?" Underwhelming tripel with nice appearance but fails to deliver on taste. Thin. Ndg2e (36) - Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours great very cloudy unfiltered look. Low to medium head. Smell is tropical fruity. Taste is slightly bitter but finishes sweet.

25.4oz corked bottle - pours slightly hazy golden orange with three fingers of offwhite head. Nose is spicy and yeasty - reminds me of la Fin du Monde. Flavor adds bread and peels from some citrus fruit. sweet. Can’t really detect the booze in here. A good example of the style but this leaves a weird aftertaste which is probably from the oak barrels. A great value. Very carbonated at first but so-so as it warmed.

Ok. Hazy amber with white head. Aroma is bounce dryer sheet. Taste is apple juice with bounce dryer sheet. I like bounce dryer sheets, but... probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013

App.: Amber with some floaties and a small white head.
Aroma: Very sweet, some earthy and citrusy coriander, light pome fruit, a little grassy hops, some light yeast, a bit of alcohol, sweet honey and biscuit.
Palate: Medium+ body, full, creamy effervescence.
Flav.: Alcohol and old apple juice, some orange peel, a touch of yeast, more alcohol, slightly spicy, biscuit, honey; sweet with low bitterness, plenty of alcohol and a very sweet, fruity finish.
Not really a success for my palate. Regret opening the bottle...
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Purchased in Silver Spring, MD. Poured a cloudy apricot color with a white head with orange tints. Nose of ripe fruit and spices. Medium plus body with a lively mouthfeel. Flavor is slightly sour with distinct old. Finished with a pleasant sourness. Very good. raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle with @beerapostle, thanks for the pour! Really solid style tripple style, nice aging mellows the abbey a little, and for 10% it is very balanced. Good palate, nice spice!
