12 oz bottle Pours a dark golden color with a medium fizzy head that faded quick and leaves spotty soapy like lacing. Smells of dough and Belgian yeast and spices. Tastes of Belgian yeast, dough, banana, apple and pear. Mouthfeel is surupy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this has strange sour elements for a tripel which makes it different. Since I live close to Everett I’ve had it many times but prefer it on draft. I might revisit this after having it again on draft because it seemed to taste a little different from the bottle.

Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Small sugar note on the nose. Has like a lemon thing on tongue. Very tart on the finish which seems to exist only to hude the booze Weird example of a triple. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Pours hazy gold with a small, almost no head. Aroma of tart cherries, some banana and clove, sweet malt, gum. Taste is okay, not mind blowing, but not bad. There is a slight tartness that doesn’t quite seem to fit. Soft, silky texture, very little carbonation. Kind of a weird tart finish. Hides the alcohol well. snownirvana (70) - - MAY 19, 2012

Not showing any of the flaws from other raters. Dark gold with an orange tint. The nose shows Belgian yeast along with some banana/esters. Medium bodied tripel, brioche and coriander palate. Soft and round mouthfeel. Medium finish.

12 oz. bottle purchased Dec 2011. Something is very wrong here. This beer tastes like a cross between a tripel and a Flemish sour, with an emphasis on the sour. My guess is that this batch is infected, because I seriously doubt this was intentional. hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Lots of carbonation. Belgian yeasts, bananas, vinegar and sour apple...slightly floral too. Get that Belgian yeast flavor first followed by a pretty potent lemon/orange tanginess. Definitely odd. Mouthfeel is incredibly sour. The lemon sourness lingers in your mouth. Strange flavors but not a bad beer. slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Bottled. Hazy Golden. Sweet yeasty nose. Taste follows that add alcohol. Average. Mine says 9%. theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours a hazy dark golden color with a large, frothy white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, some fruit and some alcohol. Fair taste, kind of bland, some yeast, dark fruit, alcohol, citrus. Something is off. jgb9348 (6259) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Deep hazy golden coloured body with a honey glow and a thin off-white head. Aroma of yeast, honey, flowers and a touch of sweetness - very strong. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong yeastie flavour with some wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a thick malty flavour all noticeable with some apricots and apples dancing on the finish and a little complexity at the tail end. Overall, a nice tripel with a lot of sweetness, some pungent flavours and good complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia camping at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
