On tap at New Hope brewpub. Pours a medium copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and slightly spicy. Taste of slight spices, fruity esters, yeast, and sweet malt.

Clean fruity notes!! Good appearance .. Golden yellow. The aroma gas a hint if fruit which masks some of the yeast character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very lift orange pour. Has a fruity and wheaty aroma with some spices. Those same spices appear in taste along with some fruity and wheaty flavor.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub - Princeton, 4/21/13, Just listed as Abbey Tripel

Aroma: The nose has lots of spice (clove, etc), some Belgian yeast, and banana/other fruits
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a small head and some fairly light lace
Flavor: The taste is a bit sweet, but less so than usual in this style, and it leans more spicy
Palate: The body is medium, and it would have a nice feel if not for being overly carbonated
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent Tripel, but it wasn’t a standout beer for me. Some of the other Triumph offerings that evening were more enjoyable.

On tap at the Princeton location. Hazy, in fact quite cloudy deep orange pour. Not especially well carbonated and looks a bit like soupy homebrew. Nose of strong ripe yeast, apple cobbler, and hops. Tons of esters and an overpowering sweetness. Not an especially impressive tripel.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 750 ml purchased from the brewery (for $18.95 !!!). The nose is subdued, light malt and some fruity strawberry notes. Strange for a "tripel". The pour is deep amber, almost brown, closer to a dubbel. The small head dissipates almost instantly to nothing, no trace of lacing. Under carbonated, almost a still beer. Tastes like a poorly done amateur home brewed tripel. No yeast character at all. Very disappointing, especially for the price $$$$$. I would have drain poured this, but it was so expensive!

Ewwww for the price, this beer is even worse than PBR. I say stick with the blue ribbon and save the extra few bucks.

GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Tap at Triumph in Philly. In a pint glass. (??) clear deep golden with no retention or lace. Apple juice nose. Taste is sugary and malty. Very amateur effort. No Tripel characters. Mostly hummingbird food. No esters. No spice. Soapy and watery nose. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capa (3329) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Lightly hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma was lightly spiced, floral, fruity. Meidum body. Flavor was tropical fruits, a hint of cloves, light spices, and a bit of rock sugar. I didn’t pick up any alcohol notes. Real nice.

Samples at the Triumph. Pours hazy orange hue. Aroma is of sweet tropical fruit. The body is medium, crisp. Flavors are of Belgium yeast, caramel malt and tropical fruit. Very enjoyable tripel.
