A - Bright orange/yellow, no clarity, lots of head and sticky lace left all over the glass. Yes, exactly like a Tripel should look like

S - Fruit, orange, mild sugar candy.

T - Smooth! ABV totally hidden. Dried fruit, and a great balance.

M - Lots of carbonation and sizzles in your mouth

O - This brew grew on me as I drank it. By the end, I am a believer.

Poured into a St. Bernardus goblet: Thick white foamy head that faded slowly into a thick white top and sticky lacing over a cloudy orangish liquid with noticeable yeasties settling to the bottom. Smells like a triple should with nothing in particular standing out: yeast esters/tropical fruit and perfectly balanced hops and malt. Tastes like banana kiwi, citrus, slightly more bitter than sweet (which is good!), slightly spicy. It's soft and fuzzy, like a delicious pillow in your mouth (which is also a good thing!). Better than some trapist triples. Overall, a fantastic beverage from a fantastic brewery.

Got this from Discount Drinks in Farmington Hills. Served it in a snifter.

A: Pours a rich golden honey color, which is cloudy and bubbly, has a half inch off white head that sticks around for a bit and then dissipates to a thin white layer with some moderate ring lace.

S: Smells of grapes, apples, bananas, yeast, malts, wheat. A very pleasant aroma.

T: Quite sweet with a slight dryness to it. Tastes of grapes, yeast, malts, honey, spices, has a little twinge to it, a bit of hops and a bit of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied with medium amounts of carbonation. Well balanced.

O: Overall, this was dog gone good. An excellent example of a tripel but it was quite pricey.
