3.39/5  rDev -7.6%

Bottle without any date, received in the Poker BIF-

Appearance- After a huge hiss when I cracked the cap, it poured a clear, orange-yellow, fairly bright, with a massive, rocky head. Left some nice lacing around the glass, and the head stuck around for quite a while

Smell- Belgian yeast and lemon up front, but a very sweet lemon, which combines with a bready note to almost smell like one of those frosted lemon cookies. It doesn't smell bad, but the two make a strange combo

Taste- Huge Belgian candy sweetness up front. The sweet lemon isn't a prevalent in the taste as it is in the nose, but the yeast esters are there. Finishes with a slightly harsh alcohol bite, which is surprising because it's only 8%.

Mouthfeel- Soft and fluffy carbonation, medium body, finishes sticky and very sweet

Overall- It's not the greatest, and to be honest, there aren't really any reasons to drink this when there are other Belgian-style or true Belgian offerings of much higher quality around on shelves everywhere

3.14/5  rDev -14.4%

Almost two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is all barnyard. It’s not the nicest smell but it’s exactly a barnyard.
The taste is light with mild lemon bitterness, a little banana and not much else.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A fairly average ale. It’s not bad but there’s nothing to remember it by.

Got this on tap at Toronado. I've had it at the Rogue Public House in SF a while ago about a week after they made their "Debut", but i don't remember it too well (aside from the fact that I thought it was a pretty alright triple).

It pours a nice golden amber color. It's not quite as light a normal triple, but it had a tinge of amber to it that makes it quite a good color. The head was quite thick when it was poured but by the time I'd walked away from the bar the head had dissipated.

I tried and tried and I couldn't get a good smell from it. Got almost nothing. Perhaps my fault. Perhaps the overwhelming stale beer smell of Toronado.

This is the fruitiest triple I've ever had. It's like fruit salad in a beer, but in a good way. There is a tinge of spiciness that reminds me a lot of peach cobbler. There no alcohol to be found and I could drink tons of this at once. This beer is a touch thick with little carbonation. Again, making it easy to drink lots of.

Overall this is a pretty damned good triple. If this were offered in a reasonably priced six pack I would buy lots of it. However, I feel that it couldn't be bottled in a normal 750 ml bottle because the flavor just isn't complex enough to warrant taht.

My wife picked this up for me a while ago. I just got around to drinking it now.

Appearance- golden color, nice size head, good head retention, nice lacing

Smell- sweet, spicy

Taste- sweet fruit, spicy pepper

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought this was very good. The sweet and spicy balanced each other out wonderfully. Very nice.

3.1/5  rDev -15.5%

Heavy chill hazed amber with a small white head. Too cloudy it has had 2 day in the chill chest to settle and it wasn't over-cooled or anything.

Smell is sweet and spicy with a strong Lemon, Vanilla and Caramel smell. Slight scent of smoke, like burned sugar.

Starts out neutral in sweetness with a sharp hop bitterness. Almost tastes like a bock beer the bitterness is way up there but so is the sweetness, it more or less balances out. Mostly just malt and a heavy dose of noble hop to balance it out.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall not that good. Not a beer I will buy again.

3.78/5  rDev +3%

A-Inception pours bright, clear light amber with a thin ring of fizzy, brilliant white bubbles. Typically beers of this style have a thick, creamy cap of off white foam, so this is a bit of a surprise.

S- The nose brings us back to the realm of the typical Belgian strong pale ale with aromas of golden raisin, clove and preserved lemon.

T/M- The mouth feel and body are much softer and lighter than most traditional Belgian tripels. Drinks like a cross between a tripel and an American pale ale. The typical Belgian fruit esters and herbal spiciness of a good tripel are present, but they’re backed up with a sweet, biscuity maltiness and a dry, hoppy backbone.

O- A dangerously drinkable Belgian strong ale. You’d never know this was 8%. Medium bodied with soft, supportive carbonation.

3.4/5  rDev -7.4%

Appearance: cloudy yellow in color with a 1" head. Some mild lacing paints the glass here.

Smell: spicy pepper and yeast are all you can detect.

Taste: mild malt profile with some fruity sweetness, pepper, and spicy yeast. Bitterness is mild. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lighty crisp throughout. A dryness arrives as you swallow.

Overall: a decent drinking belgian ale.

2.6/5  rDev -29.2%

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap purchased at Ramirez Liquors in Los Angeles California and served into me Guinness goblet in me gaff. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I've never had a beer from this brewery but I quite fancy the style.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, bad lacing, and good retention for the 8% ABV. Colour is a murky nontransparent dirty orange-copper. No yeast particles are visible. Non-opaque. No bubble show.

Sm: Light hints of citrus esters. cream, some orange peel, yeast, diluted malts (almost lactic somehow), clove, and banana. The clove and banana seem to come from the yeast. A mild strength aroma. Not great for a tripel, but to style. Underwhelming.

T: Strangely lactic and milky for a tripel, with overdone clove and banana from the yeast; perhaps the fermentation temperature was off (likely too high). Disappointingly, no yeast comes through. Clean malts add nothing of substance to the flavour profile. Some cream on the open emerging from the foam. Of all things, clove is dominant. Some tingly spice is present. All around there's rather little going on in this beer. Not at all complex or subtle. Badly balanced and built for the style.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some cream. Too thick for the style, but it suits the beer. Slightly overcarbonated.

Dr: Drinkable but boring and bland. A decent attempt from an upstart brewery, but very disappointing all around. They got the style dead wrong. A change of yeast and careful moderation of fermentation temperature is needed. It's okay, but I certainly wouldn't get it again. I'll try other beers from this brewery, but so far I've yet to be impressed. Overpriced, even here in California.

A poor candidate for aging.

Drinks okay out of a goblet, but there's likely a better serving vessel (I don't think a snifter is the answer either).
