3.26/5  rDev +3.2%

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with hints of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has hints of caramel malts and a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little lighter in body compared to other beers in the style.

2.93/5  rDev -7.3%

A: Small head that doesn't last long on a hazy copper with golden hues body.

S: I just don't like how this one smells at all. Toasted malts, burnt caramel, yeast, tropical fruits.. sounds like it could be good but it comes across sour and old/spoiled.

T: Flavor isn't all that great either. Tropical fruits, caramel malts, syrup, candied orange, yeast and sour malts. This seems really disorganized.

M: light carbonation and slightly syrupy, medium to full body.

Overall: This just isnt that good. You can drink it but its not good for the style for a good beer really. This one may have been a little old too.

3.19/5  rDev +0.9%

Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a clear, copper colored body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace. Mild malt and a bit of musty hop character. Slightly sour malt up front with some musty hops in the middle and a harsh finish. A moderately thick body, average carbonation, and a lightly sweet finish. Odd, seems like it might be a bit old, but no date on the bottle.

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.

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.

3.15/5  rDev -0.3%

Bottle from CWBlues, 12oz into a tulip.

Reddish hues, with a thin white head. Film of retention and little lacing. Nose has some sour berries, raspberries primarily, some lactic and yogurt notes, general tartness. Taste has more tart berry character, touch of malt sweetness and a sour-ish finish, yeast character with perhaps even a mild herbal hop character. Medium body, medium carbonation. Tartness almost resembles what I've had in some Berliner weisse's, but a little out there for being marketed as a Belgian pale.

A thick, murky orange that looks to be almost orange-red without much ambient light, it turns out to have a little bit of lighter orange-yellow in the edges. It's not quite opaque. The head that forms manages about half a finger and fades to foam somewhat quickly. The foam that does remain remains for the long term and leaves reasonabla lacing on the glass.
I get mostly fruits and wheat-like notes in the nose. Perhaps it needs a moment to warm. When it does get that moment, a bit more candy sweetness and some grassy notes comes out. Light, yes, and somewhat nondescript, it's nonetheless a pretty nice aroma.
A tart sweetness comes out on the tongue before the tartness takes over. From middle to finish, a strange sourness emerging from the blend of malts, yeast and a floral hops note mars the union of flavors. This doesn't come together. It does improve as it sits.
This beer starts off with a crispess that remains all the way. Smoothness also stays strong. It's a little on the heavier side for the style, but it works reasonably well. It goes a little dry into the finish.

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.

Sin Bin has a nice, dark pour and surprisingly sweet and fruity aroma. The taste is less tart, as the sweet fruit esters are balanced nicely against toasty malt and mild spice complexities of Belgian yeast. This is a damn fine entry-level Belgian, in case you don't think your friends are quite ready to bridge the gap between Blue Moon and Orval.

3.04/5  rDev -3.8%

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed copper in color, with a rather short, bone-white head of foam.
Aroma-Malt, faint spice
Taste-Faint toasted malt,background spiciness, thin-bodied with a watered-down mouthfeel. Easy-drinking to be sure, but overall in need of punched up flavor and character to breathe some life into this brew.

This Belgian-style pours a clean amber, with medium head. I get slight lace, but not very showy in presentation.

Nose is mildly spiced. I don't get a lot to go on here.

Taste is, as before, spicy and warm, with a bit of hoppiness complementing the malty character. Hints of fruit are here, too, and this one's a cool amalgamation of a Belgian and a pale ale. Not bad, but not one I'd revisit.

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.
