Batch # 4

A: Pours a dark golden color with a good head and ample lacing.

S: Has a muted aroma of dark fruit and spice. I expected a bit more.

T: Taste of dark fruit and spice, with a hidden bit of sweetness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth with a just a trace of the alcohol. Had just a bit of a sticky aftertaste.

O: Enjoyable and relaxing. I am not too familiar with this style but it was a good representation by a small Missouri brewer.

750ml into a goblet, batch #2

A - Pours a dark golden color. Very strong off white head formation. Very clear. Lots of bubbling.

S - Lightly scented - some pilsner malts and simple 2 row. A light amount of spicy notes, clove.

T - Starts off lightly malty, just a hair of pilsner malts. Very smooth. Brings in a strong fruity note, somewhat acidic. Almost seems oxidized. Some alcohol warmth in the finish. Finishes with a light clinging sweetness.

M - Moderate body, low carbonation for a tripel. Sticky sugary finish. Very smooth feel, no carbonation bite.

D - Smooth flavors - well integrated. The sour notes tend to overwhelm the palette. ABV is potent enough, sneaks up on you.

Its an okay tripel.

Picked this up at Macadoodles in Jane, MO

Batch#3 pours an effervescent caramel with one finger of pearl colored head. Decent head retention & lacing

S: Passion fruit, figs, & loads of pineapple

T: Huge pine apple sweetness, slight acidity too, plus Winesap apples & a bit of lemon up front. There's a bit of pineapple juice sweetness to this that is just dragging this down, nothing is balancing it out at all, maybe a bit of booze & dryness once warm, perhaps some cherry tartness as well. Finishes dry with acidity & pineapple juice sweetness, plus woody/ hops & some puckery notes & a bit of oakyness at the very end

MF: Fairly assertive carbonation, light bodied for the style & ABV, some acidity that isn't working at all

Drinks okay, but this is bit of a mess. I will try more of this places offerings, since I liked their saison alright...

Batch 2 - purchased at Brewery in Augusta. Bottle w/ cork.

A - Nice 3 cm pillow head. slightly cloudy golden hue.

S - Interesting smell. Spicy, a small amount of funk.

T - Taste is good, mild yeast spice, only a hint of the alcohol. You can really taste the yeast variant (Achouffe?) and the choice of Palm Sugar in the mix.

M - Medium body - slides down.

D - I enjoyed this beer - maybe a bit too much funk for me. But quite a nice surprise. As tripels go, a bit more yeasty esters than some, but interesting. Looking forward to more batches to compare.

3.9/5  rDev +0.5%

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden-yellow color with a two-finger, thick, pillowy head of white foam. It left a nice rings of lace.

S - It smelled of spicy yeast, fruits and caramel malt.

T - This tripel had a nice spicy taste with hints of apple and pear. There was a sweet caramel malt backbone.

M - It was crisp and sharp with a dry finish. A light to medium-bodied ale.

D - This is a pretty good tripel. Nothing fabulous, but certainly worth a try.

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of tart malt, yeast, raisin, alcohol, and some apple. Fits the style of a Tripel. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with a high carbonation level. There is a strong tartness associated with this brew. Tastes of sweet malt, tart malt, yeast, and apple. Overall, a complex, tart, smooth, and highly carbonated beer.

Golden color with no head at all. It had a sweet and fruity smell to it. The taste matched up with that. I got apple - it was sweet and sour at the same time. I also got a real yeasty flavor as well. Good for this style but this is outside my ideal taste range.

From a corked and caged bottle (batch number 1), with a death cork to get outa the bottle, comes a clear amber brew with a thin white head. Still looks good in the Corsendonk tulip. Big 9% may be knocking down the head on this one.

Sweet Belgian yeast with candied fruit in the aroma. Dry quaff of sourish fruit with a touch of funk for the backbone taste. Almost like apple Champaign with the crisp and dry finish. Tasty brew, just a bit on the dry side and too subtle with the flavors. No hint of the strong alcohol, sipping well this fine Saturday with b-ball on the radio and ribs on the grill.

I recommend trying this brew - available at Square One downtown if you're in the area.

It is golden color ale that has nothing really for head or lace. It has a sweet and fruity aroma with a slight yeasty kick. It has an awesome spicy taste that is by no means underdone. There are some great fruity tones dry fruit and fresh fruit a like. It has a rich flavor. It has a full and thick body.
