02/10/17 canning date

A: Pours a clear gold. Enormous frothy light tan head. Good head retention and decent spotty lacing everywhere.

S: Light grass atop a doughy malt aroma. White pepper in there too.

T: Light grass and citrus up front. Great doughy malt really hits the spot. White pepper and light earth in the finish with more of those grassy hops in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: Nice Tripel. Good traditional style and balance. Nothing amazing but a solid choice.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Clear golden yellow color. Decent initial head the dissipates quickly, ok lacing. The first whiff of this beer is great: sweet apples and pears. The taste is of these sweet fruits with a nice earthiness. A bit of dry, slightly bitter taste on the backend. Good beer!

Pours a clear orangish color with white head. Smells much like a tripel, light fruit, yeast, and some light spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with some spice and sweetness.

12 oz. can poured into tall mug
(Feb. 22, 2016 born-on date)

L: clear gold, 1-inch tall head of offwhite foam, no stick or lace

S: fruity ... peach, apple, candied apple; yeast; slight bread malt; so sweet ... orange glaze, peach pie, peach kolaches, grape jelly

T: super sweet at first ... apple gum, tutti frutti gum; over time, some clove ... bitter, earthy bitter; bread dough at times; slight alcohol warmth

F: very full and crisp but light enough to make it easy drinking ... over time has a good ale softness, hefeweizen-like

O: cool brew ... touches base with my idea of the tripel and is one of the best American-made ones I've tried; very fruity and doesn't have that nutty flavor most American-made abbey ales have

First impression was a fantastic hard to pin aroma, slight licorice. Great for its style, but for my own personal liking it's overtly on the sweet side, very moscato-like. Light carbonation, which my fiancé is a fan of here.

That being said, I completely forgot that this is 8%, the alcohol is hidden very well. Cheers.

12 fl. oz. can
Served in a snifter

This beer pours a brilliant golden color. It is topped with an inch of white head that leaves little lacing.

I get banana and cloves. As it warms I also smell peach and pear.

It as a spicy taste. I get some pear as well.

Medium mouthfeel

This is a solid tripel. It drinks easy and is pleasant to the senses.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a tulip glass.

Appearance is yellowish copper in color and clear with one finger thick head.

Smell is malt, heavy clove, and honeysuckle (quite pleasant).

Taste is caramel malt and clove. There is a good bit of sweetness and some light heat throughout. The bitterness is low to medium.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation.

Overall this is a fairly good triple although admittedly
not my favorite style (usually too sweet). I would also prefer more red fruit and less clove.

On tap at Karbach Brewing Co. Restaurant & Patio, serving in a tulip glass. Pours deep, clear gold with a fleeting head of fluffy white head; a crown of white bubbles and spotty lace linger. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast, bready malt and fruity esters (banana). Pale malt and fruity sweetness in the flavor with more spice (clove), fruity esters, floral hops and slight bitterness for a balanced finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Paired nicely with Karbach's kale Caesar salad. Not the biggest or most complex Tripels, but still flavorful, balanced and enjoyable.

Pours a clear copper color with a 2 finger foamy head. head retention is good. Lacing is great. Aroma of Belgian yeasts with some clove and spices. There is some slight citrus. Maybe some banana. Strong Belgian yeast taste. Clove is stronger with the taste. Banana is a little more prevalent as well. Smooth taste. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Impressive beer from Karbach.

Had it out of a can, lots of Belgian yeast smell and taste, but hints of something more complex that I can't put my finger on, licorice perhaps. Great company, didn't get a date but incredible new beer from an incredible Texas company. Hides alcohol well. True to its style (Tripel). Awesome smooth wheat beerish taste and feel.

Revisited later in a glass, carbonation is on point. There is very little so to speak. Smell kind of reminds me of licorice maybe some phenol. Great beer. Gonna miss it.

From a 12oz can. Taste is dominated by clove with some banana, similar to some hefeweizens but not well balanced. Smell is similar but more restrained. Light bodied. Would not recommend to anyone who does not LOVE the flavor of clove in their beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz can poured into a becker-style glass. Canned on 02/24/16.

Appearance: Pours a clear, deep gold with 1 finger of head leaving plenty of lace

Smell: Faint clove and banana with some bready malt aroma and floral hops

Taste: The yeast phenols come up front with plenty of hop flavors of citrus and herbs with a bread finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with a dry finish

Overall: Really impressed with this rendition of a tripel. Some may find this too hoppy for a traditional triple, possibly borderline belgian IPA but this works for me. Really refreshing especially considering the ABV.
