look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: nice slightly opaque tawny golden color with almost no head; what head there was dissipated quickly.

Smell: quite subtle; malty and very slightly tart and fruity. Not bad, but I would have liked more of it.

Taste: smooth malt flavor with a little bit of toastiness/biscuitiness to it. Not much in the way of fruit or ester flavors; it's not bad, but it could be a lot better.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a little creaminess to it. Again, not bad, but not particularly exciting.

Drinkability: for all its mediocre qualities, it's still a perfectly reasonable tripel and is quite drinkable despite its ABV.

A - A golden looking Belgian beer, perfect color.

S - You get a sugary sweet smell like any other triple.

T - The 9 percent alcohol is well hidden for the most part. You get the sugary bubblegum fruity taste with a dry semi-bitter finish.

M -Drinkable, very clean and crisp. You can drink a 6 pack of these and still ask for another.

O - I picked up a 6 pack for only 7 dollars at my local total wine. And this is honestly a STEAL. Go pick this up, it has a low price, high drinkability, and a high ABV. hahaha. You wont be disappointed.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and massive lacing. Light aroma of Belgian yeast, cloves, sweet malt, slightly buttery. Flavor of caramel malt, cloves, Belgian yeast, light citrus. Finishes with a much lighter flavor with a slightly astringent bitterness from hops and spicing. Medium bodied. A decent American tripel, but somewhat light on the finish and flavor progression.

Thanks to AmericanBrew for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is about what I expected from a tripel. I get a lot of orange and other citrus notes, as well as some wheat, yeast and Belgian candy sugar. The flavor is more of the same. There is a lot of Belgian yeast character, as well as some candy sugar, oranges, pears and wheat. A fruity, yeasty saison. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A: Pours a thick honey gold with some light orange tints. Head is white and relatively minimal. There is a little lacing that clings to the edges. Sits in the glass a little cloudy and hazed.

S: Subtle honey aromas and hints of light fruits like banana and peach. Dash of coriander and even a pumpkin like smell. This was a little one dimensional and it would have been nice if the aromas were amplified since it has some pleasant aromas hidden in there.

T: Taste is much like the aromas in that there is some good stuff that is not as pronounced as it should be. Honey and spices with a strong butterscotch candy taste. Some citrus tang with candy toffee and bready roundness. Finish leaves a slight peppery kick but overall it is very buttery. The alcohol is not noticeable and as this warms some of the flavors become a little more pronounced.

M: Decent mouth feel with prickly carbonation.

D: This drinks fairly nice. Has a bit of a kick. This is was a commendable effort and I thought the price and quality were very reasonable. I look forward to getting out the brewery in the future. Good way to start a Sunday evening full of food and loud tunes.

Pours a typical clear amber-yellow with a thick white head - nothing to text about, but still acceptable. Aroma is fairly strong and mainly fruity with a malty underpinning. Flavor is fruity and malty, the former being mainly apple and pear, with a hint of honey but not too much sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly tingly, leaving behind a faint but pleasant fizz on the tongue. Giddyap, sea horses!

look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured chilled in flared glass

A: cloudy yellow; little head; decent carbonation; no lacing (!)
S: very inviting; white chocolate, melon, honeydew
T: very good Belgian-style ale; pear; not sweet; not bitter; rather boozy, so a good ride; but it lacks the refinement of a classic Belgian tripel
M: viscuous; needs better clarity

Overall, a decent solid beer; not the finest example of its style, but a fine beer nonetheless

This was the fourth beer that my wife brought back for me from Seattle. Poured from a bomber into a Belgian style tulip glass. Developed a decent sized, frothy head. The color was a dark golden yellow. The taste was better than I expected from this small brewery. If someone told me this was a tripel from a Belgian brewer, I would have been fooled. As a fan of tripels in general, I thoroughly enjoyed this offering and wish that more American versions of Belgian beers were this authentic.
