Bottle shared at the September iteration if the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours a cloudy rusty gold color with a wispy whitish head. Aromas of fruit salad - apples, pears - and plenty of phenolics. Flavor is of overripe fruits, somewhat tart, with a heavy-handed booziness. A pedestrian take on a pedestrian style.

Thanks to Riko for sharing this at Woodshop Classix.

A: Transparent gold with a white head that lingers for 20 seconds before fading, leaving just a little lacing.

S: Sweet bread with caramel and sugar. There's a little banana and light floral notes with a candied presence and a dash of pepper.

T: Lightly bitter with ample bread and caramel. The beer has a moderate sugary sweetness. It's yeasty and lightly spicy with a little apple and banana.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky.

Overall: A straightforward but enjoyable Tripel.

Bottle 113 of 360

Appearance: Pours a hazy apricot color with a modest head that quickly fades to a film; decent lacing action

Smell: The honey comes through in the aroma, with tart stone fruit elements

Taste: Doughy malts, up front, with a touch of honey but by mid-palate, a sour vinegar flavor takes over; very tart through the finish, with flavors of orange pith

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am being generous with my scores as this beer has not aged well; I note the last reviewer picked up the sourness as did I but nobody before has commented on that aspect

consumed on 7/5, while I was "on Hiatus." big thanks to marty30 for the amazing extra!!! enjoyed from my jackie o's tulip.
Bottle #9/360

a - brew poured a transparent orange with a minimal fizzy bubbly head. The head was gone quick hardly leaving a skin of tiny bubbles. lacing is minimal but leaves spots here and there. doesn't look the hottest for a tripel.

s - nice belgian yeast. honey is also evident on the nose. smells rich and thick.

t - again, belgian yeast candiness. honey is there.

m - rather thick and rich. not syrupy, but not far from it...

o - overall, clearly an american take on a belgian classic. few american brewers capture the nuances of the belgian styles like the originals. when they do you can't tell the difference. this brew is clearly an american take. it is not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but if you are looking for classic, look elsewhere...if you are looking for something a bit richer and thicker with a honey twist, then this beer is calling your name!!! overall, good for an american take.

Thanks a lot to Photekut for sending this bottle my way.

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange color with apricot hues and a one finger white foam head that slowly fades to a thin ring.  Spottty lacing left behind.

Slightly sweet aroma with a balance of zesty spice, sweet alcohol, light fruit earthy, grassy hops and a touch of honey.  Boozy sweetness/sugar with hints of apple, tangerine and subtle citrus.  

Medium bodiedwith a crisp hop bite and zesty peppey spice presence up front that lingers throughout over the sweeter notes into a slightly dry, boozy finish.  Hints of pepper, coriander and grains of paradise. Maybe sone citrus rind.  Bready yeast and pale malts with sone earthy, floral, grassy hops.  Sweet with a decently masked abv, only faint heat in the finish.  Hints of apple, tangerine, orange and the honey adds fullness and more sweetness.  A bit cloyingly sweet/artificial tasting but its flavorful and easy to drink.

Thanks to riko for sharing.

A: The beer pours a golden-amber color with a finger or so of white head.

S: Smells quite sweet and sugary. Lots of vanilla, strangely enough, with a bit of bready malts and candi sugar. A touch of banana and minimal spice or yeast notes.

T: The flavor is a bit more pungent. Sweet sugar and caramel malt flavors with some citrus peel and banana giving a nice fruit flavor. Still maybe not as much banana as I'd like, but good. Mild yeast and spice/phenols.

M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Not the greatest Tripel out there, unfortunately. It's easy enough to drink and it's not cloying, which is not always the case with American brewed "Belgians".

22oz bottle (291/360) served in a snifter.

L - clear orange/copper color with a thin white head that became a thin ring.

S - slight vinegar, white grapes and pear.

T - I'm getting the vinegar along with a pear flavor, there's honey in here?

F - medium bodied with very mild carbonation.

O - maybe this was oxidized(?) but it was drinkable and quite different.

A-pours a slightly hazed orangish brown liquid with a light tan head.

S-very sweet honey, notes of banana and a touch of yeast. simple and pleasant.

T-very sweet again, honey, yeast, light spice to it with hints of banana and clove.

M-creamy medium body and lighter carbonation with a very wet oily finish.

D-nicely drinakable beer with lots of sweetness but not overly sweet. lacks a good balance and complexity but straight forward and easy to drink.

22oz bottle #172 ('11) poured into a stemless open mouth wine glass. Served straight out of the fridge and allowed to warm throughout the experience.

A- Pours clean with minimal head (I chalk most of this up to it being very cold still). There is a nice ring of off-white bubbles which leaves some lacing. The color is a gold/orange to copper hue with very little suspended sediment.

S- Phenol, sweet bubblegum, subtle notes of wild flowers, lavender maybe, slightly tart/acidic wheat or pilsner malt character, honey on wheat bread or sweet roll, some alcohol on the end.

T- Acidic and fruity while at the same time displaying characteristics of rustic breads, phenol, sweet alcohol, and a stale hop bitterness in the finish.

M- medium body with tight carbonation, fairly sticky. Not quite as dry as I would like.

O- This is a tasty beer, don't know if it is world class though. I wish I had access to Jackie O's beers cause I would love to drink me some more.
