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

Pours a bright golden yellow and looks almost flat after pour. Definitely a malt bomb.

Smells of fresh barley and sweet prairie malts. Smells like Belgium.

The flavor is a little lacking, mainly sweet caramel and a slight flavor of sweet corn. Tastes like the Midwest.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, but similar to taste, rather lacking.

Overall, a nice example of the Tripel style, but nothing to waste too much time looking for.

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

$4.09/16 oz can at Lager Mill
Undated can at 45 degrees into snifter
Very faint fruity aroma
Head barely outlasts the pour, maximum of 2 cm, fizzy, white immediately diminishing to nothing – no ring, no layer – nothing
No lacing
Body medium orange, sparkling, clear
Flavor begins with over-ripe apple sourness and not much else. No alcohol, no hops, no malt, no diacetyl. Ends quickly.
Palate is medium, watery, lively carbonation.

A pretty flavorless attempt at a tripel.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Copper, little haze with almost no carbonation, 4 fingers of yellowish head with good retention and great lacing.

S: Apple sauce, Belgian yeasts, little smokiness, balanced and light. Little fruitiness, not much floral.

T: Sweet and fruity, a little floral, nice Belgian yeasts, a hint of smokiness.

M: Thick syrupy quality, medium low carbonation.

O: A great tripel, a little sweet for me but great coming from Michigan. Got at Oppermans Cork-n-Ale in Saginaw, MI a week ago.

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

A - Pours a clear gold with a two-finger foamy white head. Light sticky lacing.

S - A nice mix of banana, clove, bubble gum, & Belgian yeast.

T - Follows the nose. Sweetness upfront with banana and apple being the dominate flavor. Mid swallow the Belgian yeast comes out producing a biscuity flavor. The finish has a clove spiciness and a small bitter hop bite.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp and clean mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - A nice Tripel. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

Golden sweet beer with a light white head. Light, easy taste. Caramel and sweet malt aroma. Really enjoyed this light beer. Pairs well with a variety of foods. Very crisp and refreshing taste. No unpleasant aftertaste. Overall very pleasant and enjoyable beer.
