Thanks drowland for the share. Yup, weirdly slick and vinegary tripel. Not sure if it is off or just not what is supposed to be. I guess description does say green apples. Other than that a lot of candy sugar/caramel. Eh.

6/28/15. 12oz bottle my dad brought down! Deep brown pour with a nice creamy khaki head, great lacing. Lots of particulates, so pour carefully. Lesson learned for the second bottle. Light brown sugar, caramel, maltiness, candy sugar, notes of balsamic vinegar - definitely hinting towards sour. Obvious sourness in the flavor, balasamic vinegar, caramel, malty, some lingering dustiness. Meh.

Completely off kilter for the style. It is balsamicy and dark in color. Plenty off of flavors. Somehow it kinda works but mostly it doesnt.

This pours a dark, medium brown color with a slight head. The aroma is sweet with caramel malts, molasses, and sugars. The taste is sweet and smooth which is very uncharacteristic of an Abbey Tripel as it drinks and tastes more like a thin stout. This very unusual taste will probably turn you off if you are Tripel drinker.

Bottle - Pours rosy cola color with a thin tan head. Nose is honey, molasses, corn syrup, with a big, doughy, yeasty breadiness. Some plasticy sourness and candied tropical fruit. Taste is candi sugar, dark corn syrup, big bready yeastiness, and some of the green apple (?) from the description. Long, sweet, weird finish, with warm booziness, green apple, and tons of sweetness. Fairly thin but slick, with medium carbonation. I have not been impressed with Valkyries offerings.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate apple (somewhat cider-like), dark fruits, raisins, light hone, and a touch of chocolate. It pours a somewhat transparent ruby with lots of fine sediment and a small off-white head that quickly settles to thin film outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with apple, grapes, dark fruits, and faint caramel. The finish is light-moderately toasty with a touch of chocolate and spice. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Bottle via Khoffman. Pours a ruby brown color with a finger of eggshell foam that settles out very quickly. Aromas of toasty sweet malts with a bit of dark fruit; fig, raisin, date and a lil booze. On the palate its a nice balance between sweet malts, dark forest fruit notes, touches of nutty caramel and a bit of grassy bitterness on the finish. Not a bad Abby style beer... could use a touch more carbonation to clean up the heavy mouthfeel.

Sample at brewery. Pours an orangish-brown. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is very fruity, low alcohol content. Taste like a brown ale. Flavor is a lot of green apple and thats about it. Interesting, but not great.
