Deep orange colour, one finger of white head with some lace. Smell is of bubblegum, light banana, yeasty with lightly tart funky notes, moderate hop bill. Taste is yeasty and lightly sweet, bubblegum, medicinal candy notes, quite boozy tasting as well. Medium-high carbonation, full body, medium weight. Quite boozy and medicinal tasting at first but seems to fade as it arms a bit, far better tripels out there than this, still decent but probably wont come back to this one to be honest.

Poured from bottle with a drink by date of 9 13 2013 into tulip glass.

A light copper color, different from the golden hazy hue typical of Belgian triple but it looks great and pours a massive golden head with big retention, carbonation easily visible to the top.

Aroma is dried fruit, like light pineapple and slight orange peel with clove. The Belgian yeast is very present and inviting. Spot on for Belgian Triple.

Taste is very peppery, not complex but some malt and sweetness is present.

Mouthfeel is good, but doesn't stand out. Kind of dry, no creaminess. Balanced carbonation.

Solid offering, drier and more peppery than I am used to but if you like something without massive candied sugar malt profile that finishes crisp, dry you will enjoy his one.

Sourish tasting tripel, darker than most in this style. slight aroma of vinegar, but taste is smooth and acerbic at the same time. Some wood, caramel and grass come through in the flavor. A little different, but excellent.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance-Mellow orange hue and clear-a bit dark for a tripel. Tall cream colored head has solid retention and shows gorgeous belgian lace.

Aroma-Sweet pils malt and belgian candi sugar, with perfumy, pear and dried pineapple esters. Touch of spicy/herbal hops and a ton of exuberantly floral, rose-like alcohols. Light clove/spice phenolics. Smells elegant.

Flavor-Smooth, white bread malt opens, with less sweetness than before-just a dab of sugary syrup. There's a hint of poached pear and clove phenolics in the mid-palate before perfumy, rosey alcohol sweeps in to dry the finish. Some green herbal hop flavor is present in the finish along with moderate hop bitterness, but the aftertaste is dominated by the alcohol.

Mouthfeel-Medium body and almost a bit creamy, though carbonation is high, effervescent, and quite brisk on the palate. Finishes with substantial alcohol warmth.

A bit dark in terms of color, a bit heavy in terms of esters, and a bit high in terms of alcohol-this is not necessarily a classic example of a belgian tripel. However, who cares? It's quite tasty, smells fantastic, and is brisk and refreshing, especially given it's 10% ABV. Highly recommended.
