Poured into a large tulip glass a honey golden with a sticky white head that settled slowly into a soapy looking mass.Pilsner malt,leafy/medicinal hops,and spiced phenols in the nose,the hops are a major factor here.Leafy and herbal hops and pilsner malt flavors the hops really give of a herbal kick as it warms,phenols in the form of spice in the finish.A well made tripel it's true to form with yeasty flavors but a decent shot of leafy hops made it more enjoyable for me.

Served in a pint glass on-tap at the Aviator Brewery (in the hanger!!)

Ruddy gold in color with a slight cloudiness. Nice 2 fingers or so of dense white foam that was relatively persistent, leaving behind some respectable lace.

Aromas were fairly clean with plenty of bready sweet spicy malts. If you are familiar with trippels, this carries a familiar scent.

A fairly vibrant push of flavor comes forth immediately as it rolls over the tongue, some light malt sweetness, a little bit of yeast, some fruit zest & coriander, all staying pretty tight through the experience. The finish was relatively quick but with a touch of warming to remind you that it's no lightweight. The linger carries a bit more of that spicy fruitiness. Pretty nice.

The carbonation was decent on this but I thought it was a bit course. I nice light persistent carbonation would add a much needed creaminess to this brew and enhance the mouthfeel. The overall drinkability was very good in my opinion and I thanked the brewer personally for not making it too sweet! Nice brew and great people at the brewery. Definitely check it out if you get the chance!

This golden colored tripel has a decent head and lacing. The rather floral aroma features fruity Belgian yeast with, perhaps, a bit less banana/clove and a bit more wheat than usual. The taste is relatively bitter and tart with some sweet balance; more tart than sweet or bitter. Complex. Near medium body; smooth with low (a tad too low?) carbonation.

O: a decent tripel with well hidden alcohol.

This beer is very pale, a light yellow with active bubbling rising to the top to continue building up a strong fluffy, creamy pure white head. Retention is good, and it falls quite slowly from just over one finger to a heavy billowing foam. Lacing is left pretty thickly in both patches and heavy spotting in plenty.
The nose is light, but I get mostly spicing over some pale fruits and a hint of banana sneaking out.
A little peppery spice, banana and clove are strong and, as a pleasant surprise, some floral and herbal hops bitterness come out strong.
The body is light and the carbonation is moderate. The crispness up front stays all the way, and there's a good smoothness alongside it. The finish leans dry as hops pull out the rest of the way.

Pours a light gold with half an inch of head with good retention. Smells a little musty with clove spice and Belgian yeast coming through. Taste is yeast, clove spice, and mild fruitiness. Lighter than expected, crisp, and dangerously drinkable for the ABV.

From the nose to the finish, this Tripel's profile is pretty mild. Overall though, the right flavors come through however mild, and it's highly quaffable.

Served in pint glass from growler. Straw colored and slightly hazy, head was almost non existent and left quickly. Smells of sweet fruity malt, a little spicy. Tastes sweet and a bit lemony. Mouthfeel is medium with not too much carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink for being 9.2%.

This is a typical Belgian Tripel, but that's not a bad thing. It poured with a cloudy yellow/orange haze that made the " unfiltered" obvious. Typical banana and clove notes on the aroma it has a pleasant, smooth clovey flavor. Not overpowering, it's nice tasteful and sweet, I enjoyed this Tripel from beginning to end.
