3.9/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

25.4 oz bottle was poured into a large Duvel snifter.

Appearance: The beer poured a two finger. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and good signs of carbonation coming up thorough the center of the glass. Head has reduced a bit a nice foamy layer.

Smell: apples, vanilla, pears, spices, bready malts, yeasty esters, and Belgian candy.

Taste: very similar to aromas and the alcohol is a bit noticeable too as the beer warms up.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, very dry, and a bit hard to drink to due the dryness of the beer and somewhat high carbonation.

Overall: a good tripel at best, but there are others. Still good to have stumbled across this one and happy to have picked it up at Gordon's in Waltham.

This is a fairly good tripel.

Slightly hazy bubbly gold, it has a medium off-white fizzy head that soon thins to a thin ring.

Aroma is pear wine, yeasty bread dough, wet hay.

Taste is creamy, raisiny bread dough, apples, bread crust, strong white bread-dough aftertaste, a bit sweet.Full-bodied, good, and fairly easy to drink, but a bit simple and one-dimensional.

3.36/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: On the plus side, the head is very impressive, displaying great retention and lacing; on the other hand, there is a ton of yeast in suspension, leaving the honey colored liquid looking very unattractive

Smell: Candi sugar dominant, so much so that the beer smells like taffy; underneath are some pear tones as well as considerable fusel alcohol

Taste: Very sweet on the tip of the tongue, with rotting pears and fusel alcohol building out the profile in mid-palate; candi sugar sweetness, peppery spice and boozy tones in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not a huge fan of tripels to begin with, but this beer emphasizes many of the attributes that lead me to avoid the style in most cases

3.93/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a two finger white head kept steady by active carbonation. Lots of lacing. Aroma of bready malt, apple juice, Belgian yeast and spicing and a hint of sourness. Flavor starts with apple and pear juice, sweet malt and a backbone of ethanol, finishing drier with clove, black pepper and light hop bitterness and hints of saison style yeast. Light to medium bodied with pleasant sharp carbonation. An interesting take on a tripel with a nice flavor progression, but flavors are not intense enough to cover the ABV, so there is a bit of ethanol in the background. Nicely made and pleasant to drink, but could use some more intensity of flavor. This started out somewhat disappointingly, but grew on me as I drank it, the flavors are more subtle than other tripels, but there is enough complexity to keep it interesting.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet malt and that's it. In the taste, a sweet malt, a sweetness of fruit/ apples. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer green apple like sweetness in the aftertaste. The green apple sweetness is a nice touch, but no nose and about standard.

I love Triples but to much alcohol after taste will drink again but have had better, (MAD BITCH FOR 1) Appearance was very nice cloudy golden, very nice 2 finger head but didn't hold for to long. Fruity aroma. Again to much alcohol taste for 9.5% abv.

3.79/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Style/abv: triple/9.5%

Smell: sweet citrus and spices

Taste: dark chocolate with a mild malty taste alongside herbs, spices, cane sugar, and clementines

All in all, this beer was an interesting take on triples due to the maltiness that it possessed. I didn't eat anything with this beer unlike the others I've reviewed, but I encourage someone to try this beer with carne asada--hopefully that works out for you

Best before 3/2014.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Thin rings of line around the glass on the drink down. Small clumps of sediment are seen floating around in the glass after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but I think it smells slightly better.
