light golden hue of it had a nice cloudiness to it that seemed to come through nicely with a bit of lacing around the sides.

aroma is light bready notes and hints of banana, cloves, pears, light tart apples and a touch of spice on the edges. clean, very clean flavor that it is very hard to find really any fault here in that. super clean with light body and a nice medium palate with hints of grain and light fruits that seem to dance all over the place. light bears and nice touches of fruit and light spice. smooth, clean finish

Semi-translucent, golden colored beer with a fluffy white cap of foam that quickly settles down to nearly nothing. Not much lace to speak of. This bottle is about 15 months old.

Smell is sweet, yeasty, and spicy. Taste is the same, full of sweet malt and spices, mostly clove and coriander. Alcohol is noticed, pleasantly, in both aroma and taste. Tart green apple flavor in the finish.

Crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation, clean, slightly puckering finish. Sharply defined flavors and liveliness on the tongue made this an excellent pairing with spicy Indian food. A very good example of the style, but falls on the sweeter side of the spectrum.

This one poured out with a really nice looking yellow gold color. There was a nice hazy to it and a fluffy white head on top as well. The lacing was a little sticky on this one which was pretty nice. The smell of the beer was full of yeasty aromas and some soft spices in the mix. The taste of the beer was was a little tart upfront which caught me off guard, after it warmed it got better. The spices cae out a little more and the sweetness of the grains did too. The mouthfeel of this beer was very drinkable, soft and refreshing. Overall I thought this was a really nice Tripel.

Nice, clear golden color with a nice pure white head on top. Head could be much fuller when compared to some tripels I have head. Very yeasty, bready and earthy aroma wise. Clean and malty flavor, very crisp and clean. Candy like sweetness-leaves a stickiness on the lips. No hint of the spices that it says it has on the label. Very full bodied mouthfeel. Dangerously drinkable. Not overly complex as fas as tripels go-damn enjoyable for sure.
