Thanks to Brad for the pour of this. On tap at Jackie O's.

Beer is a darker shade of gold then most tripels, though I'm certainly no stickler for that. White head with good retention and a bit of lacing. The nose comes through with some light apple flavor along with mild stone fruits. A bit of a crisp spice there and a touch of alcohol. Mild malt sweetness shines through as well. The flavor is really nice, and is really enhanced by the mouthfeel. Nice light summer fruits throughout. Just a touch of sweetness; nothing beyond what is appropriate for the style. The body is fairly light, yet the feel is creamy. Really fantastic mouthfeel. Hits the carbonation and body combination just right. A very enjoyable brew and probably the beset American-made tripel that I've had.

EDIT: Original review was on tap before the bottle release. Re-scored from a bottle on 01.12.2012. A bit drier without as much fruit and spice. Still very good, but not the level the tap was.

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

golden yellow, the haziness of it only served to magnify the shine it gave off. Some light sediment in the bottle, but that was from me, as I like it. A towering head of white foam at least four inches high,

Lots of grains here with a touch of yeast in the aroma. Light banana and lemon. touches of grass and even the slightest bit of grape. light, and full of flavor, light notes of yeast and wheat, some light fruit backed in as well. Nice hints of peach and a touch of wine like alcohol, but very light and more of a subtle nice surprise then anything else. The flavor was good, and at times effortless. The finish was dry; almost a champagne like dryness to it with a long lasting flavor

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".

From 08/17/11 notes. Again, big thanks to Thorpe429 for sharing another JAckie O's beer. Bottle 184 of 360, poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a taster glass.

a - Pours a clear straw golden color with one inch of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, light alcohol, honey, citrus, and sweet fruits. Lots of bananas up front and I enjoyed the sweetness to it.

t - Tastes of bananas, citrus hops, yeast, cloves and spices, and light alcohol. Again, some sweet fruit which is nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall a very good tripel. A tiny bit of booze to it, but the sweetness masks it well, and I really enjoyed the bananas. Would like to have it again.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
