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

Poured from a bomber to a snifter glass.

A- Nice hazy golden orange color, the gives a big fluffy head that runs away fast. You cannot see through this beer!

S- Malty, grainy hoppy. Smells more like a strong pale ale than a tripel to me. Not getting that Belgian yeast scent, but you can smell this beer from a mile away.

T- Tastes very good, fruitful and candy like, strong grapefruit and sweet raisins. Lots of stuff going on with this beer, and it all seems to come together.

M- Sweet and medium bodied. Very nice to sip on.

D- Very drinkable, for a beer 9.7abv you cannot taste it at all. Great stuff.

Highly perfumy and saturated with tropical taste, Green Flash's Belgian-style tripel ale turns attention away from earth and toward a simplified fruit and malt interplay.

Trippel opens with a hazy peach-orange-gold medley. As its rich body slowly releases a creamy lather, its dense blanket of froth is creamy- both in color and in texture. Is slow recede eventually leaves the beer, lacing lightly with random pockets upon the glass.

Floral and fruity to the nose, the Tripel is heavily candied. Notions of angel-food cake, honey and biscuit are laced with whimsical aromas of honeysuckle, pineapple, banana, honeydew, apricot, passion-fruit, mango and oranges. Is slim spice of clove and white pepper decorate the scent but hardly balance its fruity sweetness.

Its bready-sweet taste is that spot-on honey drizzle of pound cake, even as the dried fruit character of tropical and citrus gives the ale a fruit punch and sherbet flavor across the middle palate. Its late balance is shy and captures the clove, white pepper, white wine acidity, and spicy grassiness from hops. Still, the fruity-sweet taste reigns supreme with echoes of perfume and soap in aftertaste.

Malty-sweet in texture as well, the beer retains its bready structure and residual sweetness deep into taste with its creamy carbonation keeping the beer fuller longer. Lacking the turn to dryness, effervescence or earthy acidity keeps the beer from being as refreshing or as characterful as its counterparts form the Belgian abbey.

But with its more focused and simplified taste, the beer's bright floral bouquet chases the session from start to close- making it ideal for those who find Belgian versions too winey, earthy, or spicy.

This had a lot of fizzy carbonation that made the head grow quickly and thicken to a marangue like texture. The color was cloudy, pear yellow an had an orange tint.

The nose was pear but I found an odd talc or baby powder aroma.

The flavor was very good with a sweet pineapple, honey and toffee. It's simple but sweet and tasty.

The feel is tangy and thick with some ever present bubbliness.

Not sure what the talc like aroma came from but I really enjoyed the flavor.
