Dark gold with a hint of pear and banana aroma.
Actually strong ABV, but it does not taste like that.
I enjoyed it!

There are times when you want the high alcohol content (this one is 9%) without getting punched in the taste buds with it. I gave the taste a 4.5 because I have had Tripels with more flavor, but rated the mouthfeel a 5 because it is so smooth and easy. I was pleasantly surprised to really enjoy this beer.

This was an enjoyable beer that was a pleasant surprise. Easy to drink, flavorful and not boring. The flavor didn't disappear after a few sips like some beers tend to do.

A - Reminds me of an unfiltered Hefeweizen--hazy gold with an off-white head.

S - Pleasant smell, like honey and banana.

T - In line with the smell, it's sweet up front with hints of honey and banana. A bit dry in the middle, with subtle spiciness. Finishes smooth leaving a pleasant aftertaste--like a mix of banana and cloves. Not too strong of a flavor, definitely subtle yet sweet and delicious. I could see myself drinking several of these in a session--not too bitter or sweet.

M - Low carbonation, smooth, drinkable

It might not be the best Tripel, but it was still a good drink. Will definitely buy again. It's relatively inexpensive with a high ABV that is well-hidden by its full flavor and drinkability.

decent representation of the style, & I like the fact that it's 9 percent ABV

Poured into a Sauternes Glass and allowed to warm up for a minute or two.

A=Moderate gold...not much different than most lagers around here, including the Summerfest from Sierra Nevada I had earlier today.

S=Strong presence of peaches.

T=Cream and floral with standard Belgian proflie; impressed initially, but flavor seemed to not develop. Some citrus (orange) aftertaste. Bitterness at first, but dissipated quickly. Tried to see if I could taste the butterscotch others noted but would describe it more like cream soda. Could not taste the alcohol. Finish had a hint of lemons.

M=Nice body, but a slight film presence noticed about half way through.

O=I don't drink many Belgian style ales; from what I have tried, this seems to be a lighter version of the style, both in body and flavor.

Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy dark gold hue with a 1/4 inch head that remains constant due to the large amount of bubbles rushing to the top on the side of the glass. Great lacing.

S- A crisp nose with plenty of Belgian yeast notes plus a bready grain smell. Some hints of orange and pineapple.

T- Intensely sharp bite of yeast and alcohol upfront that cuts off to a juicy, somewhat bitter finish leaving a clean palate ready for more sips. It's like bang! Then "ooh." Then done. I don't know how they do that. Has sort of a mineral aftertaste. A bit spicy.

M- Creamy yet snappy. Leaves the mouth a bit dry after a while but it's worth it.

O- A very straightforward Tripel without too much going on. Still, unique in its own right.

A - The beer pours with a small white head of foam on a hazy gold body. Decent head retention, but little lace.

S - Bready malt with a little pilsner character and some pear and pineapple yeast notes.

T - Spicy yeast up front with notes of clove and anise. A bit of pear in the middle and an odd note of green tea. Light bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Surprisingly good, I had never heard of this brewery before and the reviews didn't seem promising, but it is actually a nice beer. The malt and hops are appropriate, but the complex yeast character really puts it over the top and makes for a nice tripel.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.

Look – light amber color, a little hazy, with about half a finger’s worth of foam that dissipates quickly. Kind of slow carbonation.

Smell – somewhat fruity, malty, but still a hop presence. Maybe some citrus elements.

Taste – definitely a citrus and clove type of vibe. Malty at the beginning, but the bite of the hops comes into play near the end of the middle. Clove finishes out the tasting. The abv bites a little bit in the finish as well.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but leans a little more toward the watery side.

Overall – Not a bad brew at all. Good taste, and decently interesting to think about.
