Aviator Brewing Co. "Devil's Tramping Ground Tripel"
on tap at the Distillery, Savannah, GA 21 Dec 2014

Appearance: Clear deep gold body beneath a short head of bright white. Decent head retention. Nice spotty walls of lace.

Aroma: Fruity with apple, pear and some citrusy pith; sugary malt, light spice/clove phenols. Peppery. Grassy.

Flavor: Sweet malt. Somewhat bready. Green apple. Clove-like phenols. Spice. Peppery. Alcohol is well hidden. Moderate bitterness of under 40 IBUs, but somehow pulled together. Delicately herbal, grassy, and floral. Finishes drying.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dextrinous edge and a moderate carbonation.

Overall: I'm not sure that it quite lives up to the name unless the devil is a fat, sweet sissy. Decent enough though.

Appearance - 3.5/5
Bright orange, with a tinge of golden-yellow to it. About a finger of off-white head. Fairly hazy, can't see through it.

Smell - 3.5/5
A little bit of Belgian yeastiness, along with a tiny bit of spice. Slightly malty, slightly metallic.

Taste - 3.5/5
Moderately sweet. A moderate amount of belgian yeastiness and spice. The Belgian aspect is much less prominent here than in most Belgians. Overall a decent beer, but I felt like the Belgian-ness was much too less consdering this is a Tripel

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Crisp and refreshing, moderate-full body, with slightly more than moderate carbonation level.

Overall - 3.5/5
This was an okay Tripel, could use some work though.

Poured a quickly dissipating two finger head from a 12 ounce can into a Spiegelau tulip. Musty nose. An overarching tart, lambic-like sweetness lays all over a mild yeasty undertone, with notes of coriander and clove. Mouthfeel a bit understated for the style. There are better tripels out there in the U.S., but this is nonetheless a solid effort, even if the sweetness may seem somewhat off-putting. Having a tripel in a can is a huge plus, though.

A sweeter then normal tripple. Goes down smooth and is very deceptive. Don't drink too many. One of my favorites.

Poured from a can. Pours hazy gold color with white little head. Aroma is sour, fruity and boozie. Tastes like a tart, sour green apple, with a sweet aftertaste. LOVE this beer. Despite the high alcohol content, you don't really taste it. Highly recommended!!
