Part of the Hulk Series. This years edition is a fresh take on last years Charleston, the triple that started off the series, sort of Charleston 2.0 if you will, with the same floral nose but less boozy aromas, more citrus notes and a lighter body. Be sure to handle this one with care or you may not see the 9% ABV coming until its too late...

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
(Draught) Guest tap at Spinnakers Brewpub. Served in a ditsy 8oz snifter glass$ clear, orange golden body and nearly no head. My nose doesnt fit the glass well, but I smell bubblegum. Very sweet, some dry malt and tart orange. Good.

A pleasant floral aroma right out of the bomber bottle. The pour leaves little head, but it stays with the glass. The opening taste is a little citrusy, but that leaves quickly. It doesnt take long to realize the power of the strong ale.

mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at St. Augustines, pours a hay golden with a small white head. Very aromatic with loads of Belgian yeast, a little crisp green apple, and some doughy malt. Flavour of Belgian yeast, candied sugar, booze and floral notes. Extremely flavourful and slightly better balanced and crafted than the Charleston Tripel. Finishes on notes of booze, candied sugar and apple. A little boozy but very drinkable nevertheless. Great stuff.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
650ml bomber bottle pours a golden amber color with a generous white head that retains quite well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and mild yeast with some candy notes. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with some light citrus hop bitterness and a bit of yeast on the finish. Light to medium body with some nice carbonation. Overall, a little on the sweet side for the style, but a decent brew nonetheless.

Gerbeer (3539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
On tap. Pours amber with little head. Aromas of malts and citrus. Primarily just flavours of bitter hops. Quite unbalanced and not at all reminiscent of a Belgian Triple, ie no yeast or malts. A miss for me.

solidfunk (8586) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Well-balanced but on the lighter side of trippels. Has some coriander and clove. Pours blond clear with good lacing and head. Finishes with light sweetness. Some booze in aroma as well. Finishes a little astringent. Tap at St. Augustines.
