On tap at brewery:
Pours a yellow stained glass with a modest white cap. A medium thick collar marks the glass with lacing in a few spots, with a scrubbing bubble like streaming swath on each sip.

Nose is malty hearty cracker with some honey sweetness and a light pear/banana fruitiness. It’s not very strong, but nicely put together for the style.

Flavor brings more strength to the familiar components: honey sweetness, ripe Bosc pear, a cracker/hay/light white pepper background, and a bit of yeasty banana lingering. Clean, light for the ABV, with a barrage of pin-pricks from the carbonation.

The beer might be a tad sweet, but the style allows for it. Fun to sip, I could have a couple of these broken up with something a little more bitter and be happy.

Pours a bright golden yellow and looks almost flat after pour. Definitely a malt bomb.

Smells of fresh barley and sweet prairie malts. Smells like Belgium.

The flavor is a little lacking, mainly sweet caramel and a slight flavor of sweet corn. Tastes like the Midwest.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, but similar to taste, rather lacking.

Overall, a nice example of the Tripel style, but nothing to waste too much time looking for.

$4.09/16 oz can at Lager Mill
Undated can at 45 degrees into snifter
Very faint fruity aroma
Head barely outlasts the pour, maximum of 2 cm, fizzy, white immediately diminishing to nothing – no ring, no layer – nothing
No lacing
Body medium orange, sparkling, clear
Flavor begins with over-ripe apple sourness and not much else. No alcohol, no hops, no malt, no diacetyl. Ends quickly.
Palate is medium, watery, lively carbonation.

A pretty flavorless attempt at a tripel.

A: Copper, little haze with almost no carbonation, 4 fingers of yellowish head with good retention and great lacing.

S: Apple sauce, Belgian yeasts, little smokiness, balanced and light. Little fruitiness, not much floral.

T: Sweet and fruity, a little floral, nice Belgian yeasts, a hint of smokiness.

M: Thick syrupy quality, medium low carbonation.

O: A great tripel, a little sweet for me but great coming from Michigan. Got at Oppermans Cork-n-Ale in Saginaw, MI a week ago.

A - Pours a clear gold with a two-finger foamy white head. Light sticky lacing.

S - A nice mix of banana, clove, bubble gum, & Belgian yeast.

T - Follows the nose. Sweetness upfront with banana and apple being the dominate flavor. Mid swallow the Belgian yeast comes out producing a biscuity flavor. The finish has a clove spiciness and a small bitter hop bite.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp and clean mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - A nice Tripel. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

Golden sweet beer with a light white head. Light, easy taste. Caramel and sweet malt aroma. Really enjoyed this light beer. Pairs well with a variety of foods. Very crisp and refreshing taste. No unpleasant aftertaste. Overall very pleasant and enjoyable beer.
