Pulled out of that magic fridge at the Hampton after the Dark Lord release. I don’t know if my palate was fried or what, but I got very little out of this. Pleasant enough fruity aroma. Watery mouthfeel. I really had to search to find the flavors here. Very subtle fruit thing going on. I still can’t find the hops. I’m a fan of triples, just not this one :( doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2008
On-tap 1/28/08 at Stone. I’m way down for the good cause and all but man, it’s overrated, this brew is average at best. Pours golden yellow with a fizzy white head that fades quickly to nothing. Faint smell of sweet bready malts. Tastes bready, malty sweet, banana, apricot, with a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is full, carbonation is active and good at first but it fades ignificantly towards the end of the glass. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle (thanks reakt). Sweetish and alcoholic, with less finesse than its Belgian counterparts. This has some slightly estery citrusy fruit characters, with some noticeable alcohol. I prefer Stones hoppier anglo styles more. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

holding up really well,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Sweet floral wine aroma that pours out clear and golden yellow with almost no head. Sweet fruity flavor that reminds me of a wine cooler, too sweet almost candy like. Very thin mouth feel and metallic aftertaste. I can honestly say this is not my favorite offering from the Stone Brewing Company.

Amber coloured. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Very yeasty and sweet flavour. A quite boring tripel. Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2009
On tap at the brewery circa 2008. Aroma and taste are both quite soapy. Some banana and clove esters are present from the yeast. This beer was quite mediocre and disappointing. I’m just happy that my money went toward a good cause, or I would have felt entirely ripped-off. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a tall white head.
S: Reeks of sugar. Cloying as any beer I’ve smelled with over ripe bananas and spices being the only break from the sugar (not that they really help much). Bubblegum and cotton candy only add to the problem.
T: This is so sweet, it’s almost got a grainy texture to it. Sugar, sugar, and more sugar with cotton candy, bubblegum, and overly ripe fruits such as bananas and apples. A strong spice character of clove that is also unpleasant.
M: Syrupy with medium carbonation.
O: Unenjoyable on all fronts. I know it’s sort of a dick move to bash this beer considering its purpose, but it’s just not good.
