snifter, orange with not much head. old 2012 bottle apparently only brewed once. getting a lot of peach, sour apple, lemon lime. mellow, not a big spice kick. some grapefruit and white grape. alcohol is very present but well blended. going down pretty easy, some heat

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Bright yellow, with no head or lace. A fair amount of clarity. Nothing special in the appearance

S - Trippel for sure. Belgian yeast is very strong. Bananas, pepper, spices.

T - Sweet, belgian yeast. Spicy. Very much like the aroma.

M - High carbonation.

O - A good trippel, but not over the top. I will drink it all day, don't get me wrong. But Avery sets the bar high with all of their other concoctions!

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Yup, Avery's definitely legal... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw-gold topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, black pepper, clove, a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, light banana peel, and confectioner's sugar-laden lemon. The taste brings in more of the same, with the spices still taking center stage, along with a vein of sweet flowers coming through the sides on occasion. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty nice spice-forward tripel, one that shows its American colors fairly strongly.

A-a mostly clear golden with two fingers worth of white fluffy head

S-pale bready malt, sweet candied fruits, and spices

T-pale malt backbone with sweet fruit, spices, and a bit of bitterness

M-medium body, somewhat light carbonation

Overall this is a decent Tripel, not outstanding but has some good qualities to it
