Thanks to AmericanBrew for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is about what I expected from a tripel. I get a lot of orange and other citrus notes, as well as some wheat, yeast and Belgian candy sugar. The flavor is more of the same. There is a lot of Belgian yeast character, as well as some candy sugar, oranges, pears and wheat. A fruity, yeasty saison. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and massive lacing. Light aroma of Belgian yeast, cloves, sweet malt, slightly buttery. Flavor of caramel malt, cloves, Belgian yeast, light citrus. Finishes with a much lighter flavor with a slightly astringent bitterness from hops and spicing. Medium bodied. A decent American tripel, but somewhat light on the finish and flavor progression.

A: Pours a thick honey gold with some light orange tints. Head is white and relatively minimal. There is a little lacing that clings to the edges. Sits in the glass a little cloudy and hazed.

S: Subtle honey aromas and hints of light fruits like banana and peach. Dash of coriander and even a pumpkin like smell. This was a little one dimensional and it would have been nice if the aromas were amplified since it has some pleasant aromas hidden in there.

T: Taste is much like the aromas in that there is some good stuff that is not as pronounced as it should be. Honey and spices with a strong butterscotch candy taste. Some citrus tang with candy toffee and bready roundness. Finish leaves a slight peppery kick but overall it is very buttery. The alcohol is not noticeable and as this warms some of the flavors become a little more pronounced.

M: Decent mouth feel with prickly carbonation.

D: This drinks fairly nice. Has a bit of a kick. This is was a commendable effort and I thought the price and quality were very reasonable. I look forward to getting out the brewery in the future. Good way to start a Sunday evening full of food and loud tunes.

Popping the top on this Trpel 7 I get a waft of yeast. Pours into a SAPP to a cloudy bright yellow with a two finger off white head. On the taste this brew has a nice thick mouthfeel, followed by a classic Belgian sweet and spicy taste but the taste doesn't linger deeply like a typical Belgian it fades quickly to a more sour slightly bitter middle, but returns for a spiced aftertaste. Without the weird middle this would be solid.

A - A golden looking Belgian beer, perfect color.

S - You get a sugary sweet smell like any other triple.

T - The 9 percent alcohol is well hidden for the most part. You get the sugary bubblegum fruity taste with a dry semi-bitter finish.

M -Drinkable, very clean and crisp. You can drink a 6 pack of these and still ask for another.

O - I picked up a 6 pack for only 7 dollars at my local total wine. And this is honestly a STEAL. Go pick this up, it has a low price, high drinkability, and a high ABV. hahaha. You wont be disappointed.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: nice slightly opaque tawny golden color with almost no head; what head there was dissipated quickly.

Smell: quite subtle; malty and very slightly tart and fruity. Not bad, but I would have liked more of it.

Taste: smooth malt flavor with a little bit of toastiness/biscuitiness to it. Not much in the way of fruit or ester flavors; it's not bad, but it could be a lot better.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a little creaminess to it. Again, not bad, but not particularly exciting.

Drinkability: for all its mediocre qualities, it's still a perfectly reasonable tripel and is quite drinkable despite its ABV.

Small head poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass that dissipated quickly. Light amber color that is slightly translucent. Taste is good but not outstanding. Sort of a sour taste that disappears quickly. Definitely a Belgian style. Smooth and no bitterness. This would be a good summer ale. Refreshingly delicious!
