Not my style but got a bomber as a gift so wanted to give it a go. To me, this has a dry champagne taste. I can endure a glass but no way I'm killing this bottle.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Bordeaux glass. Nice looking tripel, cloudy amber with and off-white head and solid lacing. Some may like theirs a bit clearer but to me this is a really good looking beer.

Smells of banana and apricot, a bit of orange and cilantro along with some spicy gingerbread, presumably from the addition of Saaz hops. I could literally sit here and smell this all day.

Taste is a classic tripel with a bit of a buttery side and slightly less alcoholic. Really very tasty. This would really go great with some lemon chicken, duck a l'orange, or some other zesty yet light flavored dish.

Overall I am really impressed by this beer and will surely be buying again.

I tried something new with this beer. I tried dunking some local biscotti in it, the results were delicious. The biscotti was almond and orange, for those who care to try.

On-tap @ Neshaminy Creek Brewing in Croydon, PA.

Deep gold, basically orange in color and hazy with a small white head. Soft spice and citrus in the aroma backed by some bready malts. Lacking the complexity and fruity esters of some its Belgian counterparts. Smooth flavor that's a little too heavy on the malt. Subtle sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden. A different take on the style but I like my tripels with a touch more spice. Allagash and Flying Fish Exit 4 remain my go-to tripels but a good, local option nonetheless.

The beer pours out of the can into a Duvel glass a lightly hazed golden orange-yellow color with visible light carbonation and some bits of sediment. The 1/4” white head persists briefly and then settles down to thin irregular island of foam over part of the liquid. The ring of foam around the glass leaves small patches of lacing on the sides of the glass, especially when sipping.

The aroma is lightly sweet, citric and lightly spicy with clear, but faint spicy notes from the Belgian yeast.

As expected from the nose the flavors include a bit of citrus (from the orange peel used in brewing the beer), some sweetness. About mid-way through there are hints of green orchard fruits, a bit of coriander and maybe even some white pepper (but if so its very hard to isolate). While there are noble hops in this beer what bitterness I can pick up seems to be from the orange peel and the hops don't really show.

The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with very light, slightly prickly carbonation. The finish is dry and shows the coriander nicely as it tapers off to the end and invites another sip.

Overall this is a nice respectable triple which can be easily found in this area and which is competitive choice when out at the bar. It drinks easily and while it isn't in the same league as the Westmalle Tripel (but then how many tripels are :-) ) While it is a bit different from many other tripels with its use of orange peel, the beer is well worth a try. Also, tonight I've learned one of the downside of canning. Its hard so see if there's any sediment at the bottom of the container and "decanting" the beer can be a bit of more challenging than with a bottle.

1/26...bomber. Pours bright gold with white foam touches on top. Strong belgian yeast nose. Citrus pokes through. Lemons. Taste is a light malt, peppery. Citrus, hoppy. A few in and the booziness is apparent. Leaves a bitter taste but chewy and sweet. Complex and flavorful.

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honey and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of orange, honey and candi sugar and finishes with some spicy coriander.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This tripel is unique in the sense that it is brewed with coriander and orange peel so it tastes like a souped up witbier.
