Color is dark orange, but not quite to copper. Yeast and orange dominate the aroma. Sweet malt with a toasted background. That pleasant funk from Belgian yeast. It's almost like orange butterscotch. Hops only show up in the dry, slightly bitter finish.

This doesn't have great reviews elsewhere, but I'm baffled. I think it's delicious.

Sin Bin was just released in a bottle a week or two ago.

This beer pours a light bodied polished copper in color with a slight off white lacing around the glass. The nose features candied sugars, light Belgian yeast, slightly sweet amber malts, and a light floral aspect. The flavors are light and approachable. There is light malty sweetness, that light floral aspect again, a light bitterness, and light Belgian yeast. It's light and easy to drink and the alcohol is deceptive. This a decent Belgian style pale and one that is overly sessionable.

Thanks to Joe for this one! Review from notes.

A: Poured a light copper/orange color with a small off-white head on top that has decent retention and thin lacing.

S: Rather sweet and sugary. A bit of caramel, faint Belgian yeast, and a some flowery/grassy hops.

T: Again, on the sweeter side for the style, not overly hoppy, but there is some light grassy hops and a little bit of citrus. A little Belgian yeast comes through and a little bit of spice.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Approachable for style. Easy drinking.

I wasn't paying very much attention and didn't know what this was supposed to be. After finding out it was supposed to be a Belgian Pale, it was just slightly clearer. It has a bit of that skunky yeasty taste it should have, but it's more funky than skunky.

It has decent color and a light head that keeps on giving. The taste is a malt, yeast combo with a bit of infection, but not out of control. It's a drinkable imitation.

This is the third Triton for me and the weakest. So far Four Barrel is the best.

Appears slight hazed with a copper amber body, white head leaves sparse speckled lacing. Aromatics bring an interesting funky tartness, nice citrus notes with balanced cereal grains. Flavor a bit astringent with yeast phenols an edge of medicinal band aid, but it's not overbearing. Tart citrus notes with a bit of funky brett noted, almost a yogurt like quality about it. I'm really enjoying the complexity but I do sense some imperfections. Mouthfeel finishes dry with a bit of a pucker, medium bodied with even carbonation. Drink ability is decent but you better be ready for the sour edge, it's tame compared to other ales in the same realm worth a shot to try it.
