3.65/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Label says "Bottled in April 2012". It was golden sunshine color with good carb streams. It had a large, foamy white head that slowly settled to a constant 1/8" foam cap. Great lacing with lots sticking.

The aroma was yeasty with coriander and other peppery notes along with good level of fruitiness and sweet malt. Moderately dry aroma. The taste leads off with the fruit and then quickly joined by the spices for a dry and spicy finish. I can't pin it down but there is something in the aftertaste that I didn't enjoy and threw it off. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation but had that off aftertaste.

Overall, a good but not great Tripel for me. Avery is one of my favorite breweries and I've enjoyed most of the Anniversary Ales but this one was a slight miss for me. Avail here in TX. Rotation - one time release but if released again I'd have to pass.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 3

Orange and clear. No foam. Looks like apple juice (this is going to be a reoccurring theme).

Smells like...Apple juice. Not beer with a scent of apple juice, but "did-someone-replace-this-beer-with-apple-juice?" apple juice.

Tastes like...Apple juice. But only a little. Finishes with lemony bitterness and caramel.

Feels like...Apple juice. Very little noticeable carbonation. Kind of watery.

This beer reminds me of apple juice, obviously. There is some complexity to the taste that makes it a worthwhile beer to try, but probably not one to try twice.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Somewhat hazy yellow with a foamy white head that quickly dissipates to absolutely nothing.

S: Funky, earthy belgian yeast, poppy, earthy spices, citrus in the nose.

T: Some poppy, orange dominates, some spices, Belgian yeast.

M: Smooth enough, and medium-full bodied.

O: A really good citric, perhaps unconventional, tripel.

A gold pour, reasonable head, mild aroma (especially for a Belgian-style), as tripels go, there is a very mild flavor. This beer has a pretty high carbonation. There's little aftertaste.

Unfortunately, for an anniversary beer, it's rather forgettable. It's not a bad beer. I'd happily drink it again, but I'm not going to crave it.
