Bottle - Pour is a bright golden/orange. Nose on this one is very strong on the spices, similar to what you'd smell from a wheat beer. Palate is quite heavy for an ale. This tastes like a Bavarian wheat beer. Not what I was expecting but very tasty! Overall it's a good beer but not one I'd go to if I was looking to drink alot. 7 out of 10 -optemoz

Comes to me in a 12 oz bottle from a knowledgeable beer friend. He is less of a fan of tripels so I get the benefit of the try. Taking the cap off I pour most of the bottle into my New Belgium .47 liter glass. The liquid is a hazy light yellow-gold followed by a moderate volume, off-white head. Looking through the glass I see a torrent of carbonation. I lift for a smell, here is bread, yeast, white grapes. All leading up to a taste. Interesting. Immediately it leads with a spiciness. Then there is apricot , grain, biscuit, a small floral entry. The 9.5% abv is nowhere to intrude, far in the background. Warming up it improves. Not an earth shaker but very decent.

I guess if I’m going to drink a beer with this high an alcohol content, I’d generally go for something a bit darker and meatier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Total Wine. Best USA tripel I've tasted since my Belgium trip. Wonderful malt/hop/Belgian yeast balance makes for easy and pleasurable drinkability (but watch out for the 9.5% ABV). It's great to find a tripel that's not over sweet with excessive candi-sugar like many are. Overall, a wonderful salute to Belgian tripels!

12oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with a creamy white head. Banana, cloves, straw, light grassy hops, lemon, orange, grain, earth. Soft carbonation and a round mouthfeel. Spicy banana warming finish. Excellent.

Quite enjoyed it. Probably one of my favorite triples. Had a bottle at flipside in Cleveland. I need to get it again for tasting notes I've drank a few over the last week. After getting two 6 packs. Bumped The rating from 3.5 to a 4. I very much enjoyed it. Lively carbonation with wonderful Belgium Yeast notes. Notes of creamy caramel and spices. Clove and coriander? All in all a pretty awesome beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
