2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Hazed, golden-yellow color with a foamy white film & collar resting softly on top. Aroma has some grass, grains, a hint of lactic tartness, slight yeast, mild funk, & a finish of lemon zest. Almost like a cross between tripel & Berliner weisse. Taste is very, very spicy Belgian yeast, more so than the aroma indicates. White pepper, bittering ashy hops, potent phenols, some mint, abrasive yeasty esters, a closing touch of clove, & a solidifying barnyard essence from start to finish. Thick bodied, high & sharp carbonation. Aroma & taste didn’t match... smelled more soft & tart, taste was quite aggressive with lots of spicy Belgian yeast. Not bad, but not really my thing.
Pours foggy dark yellow gold with a moderate off white top. Aroma is mineral and belgian yeast. Taste is more mouthfeel than I was expecting but a little more mineral that I would like. Nice carbonation and yeast characteristics. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
Very competent tripel. Big on Belgian yeast, and carbonation. Good drinkability.Tad above average mouthfeel. thorongil2 (3084) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
(tap) bright, clear, honey amber colour with a medium tall, beige head; aroma of wet wood, hint of earth; then some fruit; flavour starts sour, then balances out, rich and interesting morebeerdude (7) - Alabama, USA - JUN 12, 2015 does not count
This is a top notch triple. Among my favorites for the style from an American brewery. Fits the bill perfectly - golden, light spice, great mouthfeel. Love it. Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap. Poured clear light golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex spicy sweet and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

Taste on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden color. Thin ring of white head. Dots and bits of lace. Banana, belgian yeast, spice, mild must. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Solid but not-that-interesting American tripel. alexsdad06 (10434) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2015

The aroma and flavor have a bunch of sweet malts, fruity, almosta slight tart character, the aalcohol shows a bit, some heat to the finish, the fruit is a general fruity character not specific, some citrus, a splashof bbanana, medium to full bodied, ok. ganache (5905) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2014
750mL bottled with love on 1 2313, consumed here on 6 1414. Nose is sweet and dusty, light hay and still-bright lemony citrus, light floral background and some of the sweetness I associate with things like spelt and buckwheat. Yeasty notes with controlled jammy fruit, though no yeast to be seen in the body. Pours clear golden with strong carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is lightly sweet, medium tart, low bitterness with medium alcohol warmth that ticks up with every sip; slick and strongly oily, tons of phenolic development with slighter esters. Touch of pepper under clove and jam, bits of sugar in the full body, and extremely (exquisitely) effervescent. Hay and very light grass, but otherwise straight, strong golden malt up the middle, classic sugary tripel. They just made this one way, way too hot, it’s every bit its 10% abv, but it’s enjoyable in the giddy sugar-rush of received good news (for food and conversation with company rather than moody contemplation in Beethoven’s melancholy), if not exactly recommendable in general.

Bottle from GRM. Light yellow with an off white head. Candied smoked meat with some reminants of a five alive can and lots of malt, develops into a bit of a rancid orange juice box taste as things start to ferment, continues to be quite malty, somewhat booze. This one was a little odd for me.
