4.2/5  rDev +6.6%

A - Poured a clear, golden yellow color with hints of orange. It had a small, fizzy, white head that left thin trails of lace on the goblet.

S - It smelled of Belgian yeasty, candy sugar and very fruity.

T - Great tasting tripel. It was sweet with a crisp dried fruit flavor of apples and pears. It had a nice yeasty and spicy quality, too.

M - It was crisp and sharp. Fairly easy drinking for a relatively high ABV. It was light to medium-bodied.

D - This is a very good attempt at a tripel. Very tasty and easy-drinking.

Ordered a 12 oz. goblet with my buffalo chicken sandwich. The spices matched p nicely. Appeared a clear gold with a short white head. This beer immediately reminded me of Weyerbacher's Merry Monks tripel. The yeast character seems a bit lacking, but still features tasty pepper and spice. The body is also a touch thicker and the malts have a simple, strong bread taste. Fairly drinkable and tasty, but these guys make better beer than this usually.

Now listening to: Mars Volta - Soothsayer

A- Crisp and clear. The first word that came to mind when I saw this pured was; "bright." Golden yellow with a half inch white head that only came down to a quarter inch through the drining of the whole glass.
S-Amazing smell of yeasty bananas, pears/green apples and some citrus.
T- Much more humble than the nose, but this had a nice clean finsih. Very enjoyable.
M- Much cleaner feel than many triples.
D- I qam not sure how much traditionalists will like this, as it is very much an American version, but this is very approachable for all beer drinkers.

3.68/5  rDev -6.6%

Growler poured on a Friday on Consumed on a Sunday.

Pours crystal clear, a little limp. Pretty sunshine golden with champagne bubbles, but no head, no haze.

Smells very nice, wonderful balance. Big, very sweet and very fruity malt against a nicely spicy yeast. There's also some nodes of honey in there, along with some light citrus. Nothing exceptional, for the style, but it also avoids the pitfalls that so many American attempts at strong Belgians produce (like syrupiness or alcohol burn).

Tastes much like it smells, only not quite as balanced. The honey is surprisingly strong starting things out, moving into a more traditional middle of rich fruit and petering out in a spicy, alcoholic yeast. The alcohol is a little astringent, and the after taste, oddly enough, reminds me a lot of the aftertaste I get from Miller High Life or Original Coors. It's very smooth tasting, a little bit like sweet adjunct grain. Not bad at all, but a little unbalanced for my liking.

On-tap at the brewpub. Light orange colour with sugary head. Sweet and fruity yeast. Average mouthfeel. Bitterness in the taste. Rather so-so for the style. A sipper, full of bold opposing tastes that restrain dinkability. Sweetnes maskd the alcohol.

4.1/5  rDev +4.1%

Crystal-clear, pale yellow hue, big, active head, off-white, fuming carbonation, jetting from bottom to top.

Spice and citrus fruit in the nose, orange and pineapple, pear a bit. golden delicious. Lively, lovely.

Light-bodied, easy-drinking, despite the 9% abv, a very mellow, unobtrusive tripel. Slides right off the tongue and down the throat. Tasty stuff, and...whoop, there it is!
But not too harsh, easing in real nice now.

Happy 11th, Town Hall!

Served on tap at the end of their anniversary week, this pours a clear dark golden color, with little or no head and no lacing on the glass. The smell is faintly of tart apple. The taste has the aforementioned tart apple flavor, as well as pear, cherry, and a brandy-like taste. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. This is very drinkable-the 9%ABV is barely noticeable. Have one or more and wish Town Hall a happy anniversary!

This tripel was brewed for the 11th anniversary and was available on-tap at the Autumn Brew Review in MN. Appearance is good, orangey color with a nice head and decent spider-webed lacing. Very clean and well filtered. Smell is nice and estery, with some yeast notes and alcohol. Taste is good and very similar to the smell. I also picked up a decent amount of candy sugar and a bit more malt. Mouthfeel is on par for the style, fairly light in body. Drinkability is great for the style.
