3.43/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very hazy, dark burnt orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lace left behind.

Slightly spicy aroma with bready yeast and estery light fruit notes.  Some pepper, clove and faint earthy hops followed by apple, pear and booze.  Pale malt backbone with hints of bread and biscuit.

Medium bodied with a slight creamy texture and a strong zesty spice presence up front that lingers over the bready yeast, light fruit notes and alcohol into a slightly dry finish.  The spices are a bit overpowering with lots of pepper, clove, coriander and possibly some ginger.  This takes away from estery fruit sweetness a bit but there's still some vinous fruit, apple and pear flavor.  Strong yeast component with banana and bread character before fishing with strong alcohol sweetness.  Not hot per se but lots of alcohol flavor.  

Serving type: on-tap

3.44/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a chalice: color is copper, head is light tan with fine and medium size bubbles, pretty dense, some lacing on the glass.

Smell is a blend of some booze and yeast off flavors and phenols, some hop bitterness and aroma is present, touch of grapefruit and grass.

Taste is blend of mild leftover sweetness from the sugar, phenol from the yeast and some booze/ester type flavor - all expected and desired. Sweetness is a touch more than other tripels. Phenol and ester flavors are not overpowering and complement the sweetness. There seems to be a good amount of hop flavor and solid bitterness balancing the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a touch sweet, not cloying, followed by some tongue biting bitterness but not as much dryness as expected.

Overall, a solid brew, maybe a sweeter tripel than most but some good yeast byproduct and ester flavors.

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

very hazy rustic orange glow with golden high lights. About a finger of white head. Banana and hay on the nose.

Creamy and medium bodied. Very dry and tannic finish. Malt sweetness with a soft fruitiness up front, faint barnyard flavors of hay work nicely as undertones beneath it all. Very earthy dry finish to balance from the hops. Again super tannic finish, Really shows how a tripel can be sweet and dry at the same time rather then one or another. Reminds me of a cleaner version of weyerbachers merry monks with a dryer finish. Not too complex but with classic tripel flavors that go well together. banana and clove, fruit, and earth.

3.61/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Beautiful, hazy golden-orange with a finger of soft white head. Lacing throughout the glass and a small cap remains. Very bright on the nose, and if you've ever had a Blue Moon you'll recognize it immediately. No maltiness remains on the nose, just clean spice and fruit. Slightly warming alcohol(9+%) on the initial sip, and remains for a while. A little soapy, just a lingering bitterness from the orange peel. The hops still come out, which is surprising for how heavy it is on the Coriander and Orange. I don't like the backend. Slightly tart, bitter, mouth puckeringly sweet. Some may like it. Tastes like an Orange Warhead, if they made an orange Warhead.

Poured from a bomber in to a Snifter.

3.73/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a cloudy light orange color with a 1" head that falls quickly to a spotty surface covering.

Smell: lemon zest, yeast, and a bit of alcohol is detectable by the nose.

Taste: caramel, fresh doughy bread, yeast, grass, lemon zest, a bit of pineapple, some fruity sweetness, and a moderate bitterness make up a well balanced beer. Alcohol is defintely noticeable and mildly warming.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, less crisp and dry at the finish. Aftertaste is long lasting here.

Overall: a decent tripel that is slow sipping and mildly refreshing.

3.74/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from growler into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange –copper color with a tiny bubbly head. The head fades very fast leveling only wisps of foam on the top of the brew

Smell – The aroma is of a bready and yeasty base mixed with lots of lighter fruit aromas of orange and quite a bit of banana. With these aromas is a sweet bubblegum smell as well as a nice spice aroma giving, when mixed with the rest, a sweet and delicious aroma overall.

Taste –The taste begins with a bready and slightly more dry flavor upfront. With these flavors is a large presence of yeast and a little bit of lighter fruit flavors. As the taste advances it sweetens with the fruit flavors of pear, apple and orange growing stronger. While this occurs some clove and pepper comes to the tongue as well with an alcohol taste which begins to creep into the taste. The alcohol gets stronger and strong to the end where it is joined by a bit of a grapefruit hop and some herbal hop flavors to leave a boozy, slightly burning and lightly hopped triple flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the just thicker side in its creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average to just above average consisting of little prickly bubbles. The body and carbonation are quite nice for the style with it nice complementing the yeasty, fruity, and estery flavors of the brew.

Overall – A little too boozy and burning at the end to be a top notch triple. The flavor profile was rather nice beyond the alcohol flavor though making it a good brew to try at least.

Serving type: growler
