2.98/5  rDev -24%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a slightly hazy light yellowish gold color with a thin white head. Head turns into a few bubbles and leaves a bit of lacing.

S- The first thing that hits me is the Belgian yeast. A bit of sweet malts, lemon, a bit of clove and a some sort of funkiness.

T- A bit of funkiness, and the yeast is up in your face. A touch of spice, lemon and bit of a bready like malt. Alcohol was hidden pretty well didn't realize that this one was 9.5%.

M- Lighter side of medium in body and good amount of carbonation.

O- I'll pass on this one.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a small candy sugar and a touch of malt. In the taste, mellow candy sugar, a decent malt and a note of hops. A small bitterness and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry candy sugar in the aftertaste. Quite mellow and an average representation of style.

From notes at the brewery: The complex flavors of Belgium dazzle the palate with hints of candy sugar, spices, and the warmth of Alcohol. Watch your step: at 9.5% abv this quaffable Belgian Styled Triple may send you on an unexpected trip.

Poured from tap at the brewpub into a clean, clear 12 oz. snifter for $5.00. Review from notes taken at the bar.

A Translucent light brown/yellow body under a very slight head which only covered about 15 per cent of the top of the beer before dissipating within a minute to a few bubbles. I have seen that look in a tripel before but it is not all that impressive. 3.5

S The requisite sweet malt and Belgian yeast smells waft up from the beer along with some clove tangy smells as well. Kind of basic but I like this smell of my favorite style beer. 3.5

T Malt, yeast presence is to the style and there is that clove tartness as well but this tripel is a bit unadventurous. After some really nice beers (Voodoo Chocolate Monkey Stout and Collaborative Evil) from Fat Head's I was really optimistic about their take on my favorite style. This was is just so so. 3.5

M MOderate to high feel as the ABV is not as well hidden as the description would have you believe. 3.5

D Only fair to good but the style and ABV do not lend themselves to being particularly drinkable. 3.5

Notes: After some really nice beers (Voodoo Chocolate Monkey Stout and Collaborative Evil) from Fat Head's I was really optimistic about their take on my favorite style. This was is just so so. Don't get me wrong, it is an interesting beer and superior to other ones that they brew but I am rating within style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep gold with fine carbonation and a bit of white head. Great clarity and a fine looking brew. Aroma of sweet Belgian yeast, honey and a bit of flowery hop. In the taste, bubblegum, candi sugar, citrus, and a bit of grains. Hardly any heat for a beer this big. Medium to full in body with a sharp carbonation. I like how clean this triple is. Tasty and easy drinking, a fine Belgian style ale.

Cold draft into a 12 oz snifter

A - cloudy rusty bronze color, thin layer of light tan head.

S - Fruity esters; lychee, stone fruit, flowers. Not very forthcoming on the nose --too cold, probably.

T - Well-disguised alcohol. Yeasty esters, lychee, brown sugar, allspice, caramel. Fairly malt forward for a tripel. Drinks more like a quad, in my opinion.

M - medium to full-bodied, creamy, with light, frothy carbonation.

O - decent tripel, but drinks more like a quad. More toward the malt end of the spectrum with less fruit and flowers than I would expect from a tripel. A little heavy for a tripel, also, in my opinion.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Dark yellow to yellow-orange. Beautiful collar stays put. Laces well. Looks quaint, but I know it will probably pack a punch.

Banana, peppery Belgian yeast ester, white toast with sugar, marzipan, faint lemon, and a trickle of artificial peach.

Belgian pale malts and vibrant yeastiness offer notes of almost-ripe red apple, peppercorn, banana, white bread, romping spicy booze, nuttiness, and tail-end citrus. The toast is light-to-medium. Very loud in the feel. Lots of trapped carbonation and booziness. Almost hard to deal, because it's very spicy. Body is fuller than it seems with everything else going on. Cuts back on drinkability.

Everywhere I want it to be, it's big. Everywhere I don't want it to be, it's big. Fat Heads made a statement here. Everything 'big'. It's a Head Trip.
