A: Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Belgian spices with a lot of bubblegum and candy sugar up front. The finish has aromas of sweet breads and some steamed veggies.

T: Belgian spices with candy sugar here as well. The yeast is a bit more present here with sweet bread flavors. There is also a steamed vegetable quality here as well.

M: Medium-light body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a bit watery.

O: A pretty mediocre tripel overall. The steamed veggie quality is a bit much and it's otherwise a bit watery and bland.

Slightly hazy yellow with white head. Aroma has grains, quite cloying yeast character and booze. Taste starts sweet and malty with some sugar and yeast notes. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Not really my type of beer.

Sampled in a standard pint glass from a can purchased the same day at the brewery.

Light golden (almost yellow) with decent clarity next to no head. Pretty lifeless. The aroma is green apple and cider. The flavor follows closely with an apple cider quality and little more. It's way too sweet for me and the low carbonation doesn't help. The alcohol is well hidden.

The brewery isn't far from me so I really wanted to like this one but I'm not sure I'll get through the four pack.

Tasted from a 12oz can into a wine glass. Moderately cloudy with very little head. Aromas of sharp, slightly skunky noble hops. Flavors are more pleasant than aromas, with low Belgian yeast playing over tripel maltiness; however, there is still a green, funky hop flavor that is not good. Mouthfeel is light, with a low carbonation. Overall, not a great example of the style.

Can shared. Pours hazy gold color with white head. Aroma is sour, fruity, yeast and booze. Tastes like a tart, sour green apple, with a sweet aftertaste. The sweetness increases the more you drink. It’s too sweet for my taste. Not my favorite.

Clear light golden in appearance.

Aromas of spice, some yeast and a bit of leather.

Flavors of pepper, other spices, sweet fruit and creamed corn with alcohol.

It has a spicy bang on the palate combined with a smoother finish and alcohol warming.

Pours to give a straw colored body with loads of wheat debris floating throughout, along with a soapy head that decays very slowly to nothing. The scent is very sweet and floral and lacks many of the complexities I would expect of a tripel. The taste comes up strong in added sugar and rosewater, I feel I could really just eat a traditional Turkish delight and get a better experience. The beer is very smooth, with carbonation in between that of champagne and a nice white wine. Overall there are better tripels, and frankly I am disappointed by this one.
