3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Thanks to Dad for this one. Not the most fantastic tripel I have had, a little sweet not overly complex, but I liked it much better than some of the hate it got in some ratings. Decent enough stuff, surely. Serving: Bottle
OK Trippel. Overall seems true to style, sweet, hints of banana and spice, slightly unctuous finish. In fairness, not a favorite style for me. Aggiebob (1394) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle. Golden color with a white head. The aroma was clove and spice. Ok, but I was hoping for more aroma and flavor. StoutBeerReviews (277) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2017
WWWWAAAAAYYY too much carb in this, really sprecher? not a fan of at all. I havent had any other triples before, but if this is what most triples are like, im definitely not buying any others. Only notable features are a bit of banana and clove, and some mild alcohol flavors. *Editing as i am drinking* ... Its a bit better as it warms up. Either got used to the carbonation, or it fades off fairly quickly. The more i drink this, the more i like it. weird. euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2016
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours hazy gold, shirt white head. Aroma of banana and spice. Taste of same with citrus and bitter finish. Way too much carb for style and the bitter finish was a little phenolic. Maybe an old bottle. kenter2000 (75) - , Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2016
sure this taste good to me. i accidentally saw what everyone else was thinking about this before i got a chance to review it. i hate that they give that information away first. seeing a beers score makes reviews bias. i am, as i type, second guessing my own taste buds. do i actually like this thing? it was rated so poorly?

Faint yeast aroma. Not much there. Pours a bright yellow gold with a thin bright white head that leaves a film of foam on the glass. Medium bodied. Velvety mouthfeel. Wafts of butterscotch and a hint of sweet and spice. A little bit acidic on the finish but overall a nice beer. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a bright golden yellow color. Active carbonation throughout the session. Aromas of hops, fruit, and a little yeast. Has a light fruity citrus taste, with some yeasty notes, and a good hop flavor. Carlisle (865) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016
Draft. Pours opaque gold with white head and lacing. Fruity yeast aroma. Fruity yeast flavors. Delicious.

Bottle, in my mother’s basement, just now. Beastwhite315 (33) - - DEC 22, 2015
Pours a very hazy banana yellow with a medium sized head that fades reasonably quickly and leaves a little head on the glass.
The aroma is sweet fruit (banana, red apple, & apricot) mixed with a bit clove like spiciness and a bunch of wet limestone.
The flavor is alcoholic and spicy with a medium to high level of sweetness, some fruit punch with frozen pineapple juice in it, some banana, and a bit of minerally earthiness.
It’s cloying and it’s heavy and it’s weird... but honestly this beer was formidable for me. I remember drinking bottles of this over ten years ago and being enormously impressed, this beer pushed me towards styles and price ranges where before I had rarely trod. So in a way I’m quite thankful to this beer, although it’s genuinely outside the bounds of what I would normally drink now.
Very good for a triple. Nice Abbey character and smooth. I didn't think I would like this one but was surprised.
