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.

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.

Friend of mine gave me one to try.

A - Pale orange. Slightly off-white head with low lacing.

S - Strong Belgian funk with some hop. Not overall appealing until after first drink.

T - Upfront Belgian phenolic with some light citrus hop character. Sourness predominates the overall taste with some sweetness and minute bitterness. Belgian flavor and sweetness linger on the palate. Similar to a Belgian wit but with more hops and more hops.

M - low/moderate mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky on the finish from the Belgian yeast.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend it to those opposed to Belgian blonds and wits but if you're feeling adventurous I'd give it a try.

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.

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.

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.
