3.9/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Glass Used: Goblet

Appearance: Slightly cloudy and golden with a thumb-thick tight bubbled white foam which clings to the sides as it subsides. Head lingering around while.

Smell: Malt up front, melded with some tropical fruits and a mild sweet orange floating around. A few deep inhales after the initial smell you get some sweet pear smell as well. I find the fruit aromas a bit muted but it's probably due to slight congestion on my part. Overall a very enjoyable smelling tripel.

Taste: Flavors are all malt and hops. Very light sweetness with a mild bitterness finish. I get some of the citrus flavor at the end before the bite of hops show up. Pretty balanced as none of the flavors overpower one another.

Mouthfeel: Dry; Very clean and light. Well carbonated.

Overall: My experience with tripels has been limited but this one is pretty enjoyable.
I would definitely have this one again, perhaps side by side another tripel to see how it holds up.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #84 (Jan 2014):

We were really looking forward to this American-brewed Tripel, but unfortunately the sample we obtained was flat and unfinished; it’s a bottle-conditioned beer. It also poured very hazy, but did drop bright once the beer warmed up considerably. The entire experience missed the mark for us. We’ll have to revisit it one day.

STYLE: Tripel
ABV: 9.0%

LOOK: Hazy peach, no head

SMELL: Fruity, medicinal, pepper, biscuity

TASTE: Firm, flat, bubble gum, spicy, soft, bready malts, fruity, peppery, yeasty, semi-astringent finish

From the 750 mL bottle into a Belgian tulip.

Pours a light golden color and produces a light, pillow-like and somewhat fizzy pale white head. The brew has a glow to it, but it's muted by the cloudy body. 4.1

The aroma is sweet and malty, with citrus and tropical fruit. A potent floral aroma becomes more and more apparent. 3.9

Continued sweetness from nose to palate, but it starts taking on a more pronounced caramel taste. Tasty floral notes like lily give this a saison quality, and then a bit of citrus works into the flavor. 4

A lot of sweetness up front segues into a floral, bitter finish. The brew is creamy, medium-bodied and smooth. Carbonation is not apparent on the tongue. 4

Well done, Community. This beer is on point. 4

750 mL bottle pours a hazed gold color with a very large cap of bright white head. Awesome retention and lace....a great looking beer. Head is pillowy and soft.

Nose is fruity and zesty, as a good tripel should be. The yeast shines the brightest and the best compliment I could give is that I wouldnt be able to tell this was American brewed or from Belgium. Good stuff.

Taste is peppery and creamy with more hops than most tripels. The hops seem more flavoring than bittering, with a crisp leafy presence. Wow, this one is pretty tasty. The malts are very soft and inviting. Yeast does alot of work, but is not overly phenolic. More of a peppery, mild fruit as opposed to huge clove and mango. A light metallic twang on the finish is the only thing I can complain about. Solid beer, Im excited to have this available on a regular basis. Will buy again, and Im excited to send out to some friends.

750, capped and waxed. Night 2 of my Community experiment. It pours a clear gold with a rocky white head that shows no sign of surrendering. It looks like it should have a little cannon and the phrase "come and take it". It smells of peaches, strawberries, a slight peppermint, and sort of a candy orange. I think I just described fruit loops. But in a good way! The taste is bready with a grassy finish. Simple but good. It has a nice balanced sweetness/dryness. Mouthfeel is soft with subtle carbonation. Overall, I like it. It's easy drinking if not remarkable. If this is dumbing down, call me stupid.
