I purchased this at Stone Grille taproom in York, in their bottle shop called BrewTaGo, 22oz enjoyed chilled with tenderbranson69 from a cordial glass.

The color is a very hazed sunny golden with thick cream with fine bead and lasting retention, lace clings like foam. The smell is very good nice malt with a slight spice not from the yeast and mildly sweet essence perhaps candy sugar with light alcohol. The feel is excellent, the alcohol is restrained with malt being the star and yeast adding dimension with moderate carbonation and light sweetness in the finish.

The taste is great, lots of belgian yeast adds clove and some light banana with a gentle dried fruit flavor and malt sweetness is full in the middle with a tinge of candy sugar tip and mild peppery hop accents the yeast with only a smidge of alcohol warmth in the finish which is mostly dry. Overall I really enjoyed this -a very good take on the style by this American brewer.

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.

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.

Picked up a bomber of this for 7 bucks from the house of 1,000 during their bomber sale. Into a stone pint glass.
A - Very carbonated giving me a 1/2 inch of sudsy head that lasts quite a while. Color is a somewhat hazy bright yellow.
S - Smells of spicy hops, light fruity yeasts, some lemon, and grassy hay.
T - A very fruity Triple indeed, getting some apricot, honeydew, and grassy hops. Very dry and Belgium in nature with stingy alcohol esters and fresh squeezed lemon.
M - Medium to heavy with noticeable alcohol and bubbly carbonation.

Overall I have had smoother Triples and I really like fruity takes on the style. Not bad overall for what it is.

Pours a glowing orange color, light haze with thin cap of bone white bubbles, sticky lacing. Big pungent whiffs of tropical and citrus, candy sugar, light breadyness, moderate spice. Taste brings orange rind, fruity grapefruit and orange juice, residual sugar, moderate notes of corriander, light breadyness. Lightly bitter, sweet and fruity but finishes a touch dry. Quite taken back by how enjoyable this beer was. ABVs hidden well, and while not necessarily true to style with all the sweet fruityness, it was enjoyable for every sip.

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.
