Sample at the source. Clear golden color, aroma of fruity yeast, sugar, crisp Pils malt and honey. The flavor follows, sugar element is low, no alcohol. Body is light with lingering yeast hints. conway (2210) - - MAR 20, 2013
Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Nice replication of a Belgian style ale. Nothing new but tasty.

Pouring at Belgian Beer Fest. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big sweetness, candy and malt, wheat. Sweet, floral, lovely tang with hints of acid. Tart, wheat, big fruit. Very complex. Lingering tartness over an almost bretty yeast. Very nice. Travlr (24841) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Belgian Beer Fest Boston. Courtesy of Mitch, thank you sir! Sweet start, with a bit more spiciness and fruitiness than your average tripel. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Our friend Robert brought this one back from a trip to Boston. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-peach color with a small creamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy table sugar, bread, pear and golden raisins. The flavor was dryish yet tangy with notes of table sugar, yeast, a bit of must, faint vague herbs and a moderate presence of candied golden fruits. The finish was medium length tangy and musty with lingering bread and golden fruits. Full bodied. Solid.

From the 22 fl. oz bottle marked March 2011. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow-orange with a thin, fizzy white head. The aroma is of banana, pepper, spice, and malts. The body is of medium weight but it is also smooth and creamy. The taste is quite pungent at first with a lot of tart spiciness and hops and it is not as sweet as advertised. It mellowed as it warmed up and went along. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bomber received n a recent trade with mkabull. Thanks again Alec! Bottled 4/11.
Pours a hazy dark golden range with gold edges and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with grassy hops, zesty spice, pale malt and light fruit. The yeast is prominent in the nose with hints of bready, straw, apple and pear. Lots of peppery spice, possibly coriander and candy sugar. The pilsner malt becomes more dominant as it warms giving off an odd buttery scent.
Medium bodied with a very prominent pilsner malt flavor. There’s some zesty spice up front with hints of pepper, coriander and possibly some candy sugar. This is followed by the strong yeast and malt characters. Hints of grass, hay and straw along with estery light fruit notes, especially apple and pear. Some sweet alcohol booze in the finish but overall the high ABV is well masked.
Overall, this beer has a bit of an identity crisis. It has some tripel characteristics but the heavy malt presence makes it feel more like a spicy pilsner with Belgian esters. Decent but the malt profile is a bit heavy for my liking.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of clove, grainy malt, yeast, and light fruits. Flavor of grainy, yeasty malt with a super fruity, sweet finish. Palate is slightly harsh, a touch bitter, but improves as you drink ;-) Overall, a fruity tripel, less spicy than most American tripels (a plus for me!).

22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours opaque golden with a thick, white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, really light hops, and some light hops. The flavor is pretty standard for a Tripel, lots of yeast, a little sweet, a little hoppy, and a hint of alcohol. Pretty good imitation of a Belgian Tripel from an American brewery.
