12oz bottle, no bottling date. Thanks David. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 1/22/2014.

App- Slightly hazy golden body, less than 1 finger worth of white head, ok retention, small bits of lacing.

Smell- Belgian yeast spices, very malty

Taste- Malty as heck, quite sweet with Belgian candied sugar, spices, Belgian yeast flavour

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, good carbonation, not difficult to drink

Overall- I find tripels to be a boring style and this doesn't change that perception. Still a solid beer without any offensive characteristics that I didn't mind drinking

This beer pours a cloudy golden orange color with a very slight and short lasting off white head. The smell is malty sweet with a bite of alcohol and a little yeast. The flavor follows suit. Quite sweet but tangy at the same time. Definite alcohol and yeast notes but we'll balanced by the sweet malts. This is a well crafted Belgium style ale but I ask...why buy an American alternative to the classic style when there are so many perfect examples coming straight from the original source. Just my opinion.

On-tap at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Tasted 14 November 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pour a pale clear amber, the color of scotch. Brought with no head, leaves a little lacing on the glass.

Smell is warm and fruity. Clean and full of esters, almost banana-like. Reminds me a touch of a hefeweizen, but only the pieces that belong in a tripel, IMO.

Taste is outstanding. Hard to describe what I like so much about it; it’s fruity, rich, and packed with Belgian yeast-digested candi sugar. Sweet and dry, clearn and varied. Yum.

Feel is good. Not thick, but mouth-filling in a buoyant way. Lasts just the right amount before drying out, leaving me wanting the next sip.

An excellent tripel. Definitely on the sweet side, but with enough dryness to balance it out. Delicious.

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 8/16/2013. Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a small foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apple, grape, banana, clove, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy esters; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, grape, banana, clove, pepper, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, clove, pepper, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately crisp and slightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great tripel! All around great complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
