Pours a murky dark golden orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, floral, fruit, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, honey, citrus, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice honey and fruit characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Heightened creaminess, fruit-forward with a spicy balance, earthen grain and hops; all with a winelike undertow. Perhaps brewed in Ohio, but their heart is clearly in the Belgian abbey.

Rockmill's Tripel opens with a hazy golden austere that frothens the rim with a tall column of foam. The pop of those racing bubble fill the nose and brighten the palate with candied lemon, apple and mild pear. A firm banana and papaya character provides a tropical whimsy and a creamy texture to balance its sparkling white wine acidity.

The middle blooms as the beer's spiciness and vinous tang cuts through the bready sweetness and fruity demeanor to open up a drier and crisper finish. Clove, white pepper, mint and hay develop just before the beer closes.

Warm and pleasantly spicy, the ale favors a peppery taste and feel to offset its upstart of fruit and sweetness. Leaving the palate refreshed and the tastebuds satisfied, its complex taste lays down a thin layer of vanilla and wheat as its short aftertaste concludes.

This is a great beer. I think I like it better than the cask aged version.

Pours cloudy. Great fruit tones. Mild and appropriate sweetness. Great feel. Even and smooth overall. Like I said: this is a great beer. I definitely like this one better than the cask aged version. This is a brewery to watch out for.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: This beer pours a dark golden color and is topped with 1” of angel white colored head that fizzes down to ¼” of head that lingers.
Smell: The aroma of this brew is a good malt base that is overwhelming a Belgian yeast smelling aroma to it.
Taste: Wow that is a powerful taste. It has a malt and yeast blend but man there is something on the back of the palate that I can’t place. It is overpowering and on the verge of bad. Sorry Rockmill.
Mouthfeel: This is a thin bodied beer that is rather effervesce but I can’t get over the off taste.

375 ml bottle
Served in a snifter
Bottled 02/07/14

A - It pours hazy and orange/yellow in color. It is topped with an inch of off-white head.

S - I get some pear and spices from the yeast.

T - The taste is similar to the smell. It starts out spicy with some pear. The finish has some orange.

M - Medium with lots of carbonation.

O - It is an enjoyable beer. I am not typically a tripel fan. I enjoy the fruity flavors on a warm Memorial Day after moving and mowing. I am glad Rockmill has this size of bottle now. I walked past it several times in the $16 for 750ml range. Nine dollars for a 375ml bottle was easier to pull the trigger on.

Light golden and very hazy. Thin white head that maintains. Minimal lacing.

Aroma is slightly floral. A little bit like soap, but it a good way.

Taste isn't bad but is a little bit of a letdown. Malty and citrus, with a grassy aftertaste. Actually works well together, but is a touch on the bland side.

A little effervescence but thick. Flavor intensity doesn't quite match up.

Overall a decent beer. If you place value on it being organic, it's a good option. If not, Chimay white label is less expensive and significantly better.
