4.71/5 rDev +21.1%
A - Vibrant, lively hazy orange-yellow with nice frothy white head that is very, very sticky, retains well, and laces on the glass very well.
S - Pear, bubble gum, white grapes, honey, hops, breadiness.
T - Wow. This is excellent. All that is detected on the nose in an expert balance. Hoppy but not too biting following each swallow. This is really excellent.
M - Medium to full bodied. Sticky. Bubbly but not overly carbonated. Very, very, very smooth.
D - I've never even heard of Cambridge Brewing Company and I'm very, very, very impressed with this first offering of their's. Will DEFINITELY be checking out more of their brews. This is an A+ Belgian tripel. I'm very, very impressed.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #65 (June 2012):
LOOK: Rich, golden, slight haze, creamy white lacing
SMELL: Faintly phenolic, gum, orange, toasted grains
TASTE: Very smooth and creamy, honey, toasty, cereal grains, caramel, candy, warming alcohol, pepper, spice, phenols, ripe citrus undertones
According to many, and the label, this is the first-ever Belgian-style beer commercially produced in the US, originally brewed in 1990 by former CBC headbrewer Darryl Goss (RIP). According to us, it’s one of the best. Everything you’d expect from the style. This is Belgium in a glass.

Enjoyed at the BBF
A - Very nice light amber hue with a small head but reall nice retention.
S - Just excellent. Sweet malts, candied malts and fruits, grains, and light belgian spice/yeast notes.
T - Almost as good as the nose. Nice sweetness intermixing with good sweet almost sticky fruits. Nice spice notes as well.
M - Good mouthfeel here. Nice and sweet, but not heavy or syrupy. Pretty good.
O - Yet another winner from CBC. The second table we went to at the fest and the one we just kept on going back to. Not a bad beer from these guys.

Thin, white head that doesn't dissipate. Dark yellow, almost yellowish brown color, completely translucent. Aroma is slightly yeasty but taste is very yeasty with clove and some vanilla in the finish. Medium bodied but with syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, very nice beer.

Served in a tulip glass, this beer a hazy orange body with a small white head.
The nose was classic belgian triple Spice, malt, wheat, some phenols, banana, apple, pear. Simple and very clean.
The taste was fruity and very smooth. Cinnamon, spice, apples, pears, big banana overtones, wheat, earthy hops. The banana flavor really dominates the fruit tastes. It was also a bit hoppier than I expected, but overall nothing distracting. It reminded me like a cross between a strong german weis beer and belgian triple.
Overall a very drinkable and fresh belgian style triple. The alcohol was completely hidden and really crept up as I was finishing the beer. Another great beer from CBC.

A light orange color with some sticky white head that laces the glass nicely.
Smells of fruits, oranges. Yeasty with some malt underneath.
Very tasty, this is a great triple. Nice deep malt character overlaid with some spicy yeast. Many friut tones balance this out and make it a great drink. Some notes of oranges and other fruits.
Good mouthfeel, great drinkability for this high ABV.
One of the best tripels out there.
