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.

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.

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.

22 oz into a .5l cylinder named Spaten.

Appearance
Perfect - Golden yellow with abundant, lasting white head. Nice haze with low carbonation. Moderate lacing. As it should be.

Nose
Wonderful nose that crosses Lemon with Honeydew, a new hybrid and attractive fruit, and then adds cut grass, hay, potpourri and bready grain. The right amount of alcohol. As a tripel should. Great food beer - in this case chinese chicken with white beans, garden romaine, red wine, garden taragon, basil & rosemary. (Come on, you beer drinkers grow a few herbs!) uber inviting.

Taste
Lemon, honeydew as in the nose, with apricot, grass, wheat. somecandy sugars balanced by yeast and hops bitter tang. Nicely spicy with hay, potpourri and lots white pepper. Earthy complexity, a true meditation beer. The more I savor this beer, the more I like it. It's a bargain. An American Tripel, who does better?

Mouthfeel
Tangy. Light-medium bodied, smooth, dry and slightly sticky/ hoppy / bitter. (alot going on and very satisfying with food.)

Overall
This is an A+Tripel. Excellent, easy, go slow at 9.3%. Meditate over this beer. (or medicate as you wish...)

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.
