look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

I bought a bomber of Triple 7 in a bottle store. Poured into a Saxo tulip glass.

Pours a rich gold color, clear with a bit of chill haze, and a creamy white head.

Smell is a soft sweet scent. Pear and melon aromas.

The taste is also typically Belgian, soft sugary fruit flavors, with a mild dry bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean.

Overall not a bad Belgian ale. I'm not much on the style, and I'm sure I have had better, but this is good.

Poured into a chilled glass, has a small head of fine bubbles. Clean aroma. Tastes of spice and subtle candied apricots with pleasant amount of bitters that linger on the tongue. Full body, great mouthfeel. I rarely drink tripels, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Well done, sirs!

There are times when you want the high alcohol content (this one is 9%) without getting punched in the taste buds with it. I gave the taste a 4.5 because I have had Tripels with more flavor, but rated the mouthfeel a 5 because it is so smooth and easy. I was pleasantly surprised to really enjoy this beer.

This was an enjoyable beer that was a pleasant surprise. Easy to drink, flavorful and not boring. The flavor didn't disappear after a few sips like some beers tend to do.

A - Reminds me of an unfiltered Hefeweizen--hazy gold with an off-white head.

S - Pleasant smell, like honey and banana.

T - In line with the smell, it's sweet up front with hints of honey and banana. A bit dry in the middle, with subtle spiciness. Finishes smooth leaving a pleasant aftertaste--like a mix of banana and cloves. Not too strong of a flavor, definitely subtle yet sweet and delicious. I could see myself drinking several of these in a session--not too bitter or sweet.

M - Low carbonation, smooth, drinkable

It might not be the best Tripel, but it was still a good drink. Will definitely buy again. It's relatively inexpensive with a high ABV that is well-hidden by its full flavor and drinkability.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

P: Slightly hazed copper body with a topping if white thin milky head that fades rather fast and leaves a wet ring around the glass.

S: Starfruit, peaches, apricot preserves, pears, yellow apples, wheat grain, pineapple, artificial syrup flavoring and lime. Has almost a dairy character to it. Dry timidly musty yeast, and weeds. Aroma is dialed down.

T/M: Not like the fruity nose. It has an odd aftertaste of spoiled fruit and bitterness similar to bitting into kale. Butterscotch comes to mind for the weird after math. Artificial banana and an odd spice profile. Body is nice and sticky with a subtle dose of carbonation. Overall taste is off and cheap.

O: Not a fan of this beer but I didn't expect too much for such a cheap tripel offering. Nose is nice and body was well done. Taste is just not appealing.

this was actually a very tasty beer. lots of nice banana notes and a slick mouthfeel.

ratings reflect the fact that it isn't well reflective of a tripel at all. it did not have any of the crispness or spice that i would have expected and the hops seemed a bit heavy handed. as others have said, this seems to lean more toward a belgian-style IPA (and a good one at at that) than a triple.

3.63/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
