look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5
Bottle poured into pint glass; review done from notes taken at my sister's apartment. A little over-carbonated, as it began to rise up through the neck of the bottle before I could get it poured. Indication #1 that this beer may be "old", but I can find no freshness info on the bottle, so my review continues.
A: pours a hazy light orange with a thick foamy off-white head. 4.0
S: bisquity and earthy sweet, with a twinge of citrus hops and cotton candy sweetness. 2.5
T: malty sweet, with citrus on the back end, but no bitterness to balance it out. Overly sweet, cloyingly so, with that "cotton candy" sweetness that indicates to me it is beyond it's freshness. With no discernible freshness date, I can't confirm my fears, so I review none-the-less. Triple-IPA? I think not... 1.5
M: thick and syrupy, this beer appears to be properly carbonated but you can't feel it through all the thick syrupy sweetness in the mouth. 2.5
D/O: this isn't very enjoyable at all. Not repeatable. 1.5

Going not by style, but by the ale, this is really nice and flavorful. If it were by style it is off the mark into a Belgian strong ipa and NOT a triple. That said....the beer pours a bright orange with thick frothy white head and EXCELLENT lacing and later pooling thin layers of foam. A "live" ale which I am fond of since it lives and matures much longer. Nose is sweet malts mingling with spicy hops, lemon grass, and Belgian bready yeast. Taste is up front sweet candy malts and sweet fresh bread yeast---ahhh the Belgians and their fantastic malts and yeast strains! The sweetness subsides into a citrus note, turning into a bittering hops note that lingers on and on. Very nice mouthfeel, nicely carbonated and smooth drinking. Excellent by ale standards, but not really a true Belgian triple. Great for hops heads, a bit over the top for Belgian lovers of which I AM.

On tap at the Atlanta Yard House.
A: lclear medium amber with a somewhat weak head.
Aroma: boozy with a hint of cognac oversome Belgian yeast and a trace of bread.
Flavor: lsweet up front turning ightly bitter by the finish. Building booziness.
Feel: light-medium body; carbonation seems too low.
Serving type: on-tap
