    Yeasty and hides the abv well, especially on the nose. Fruity flavors of plums and orange on the nose and flavor. Dry, sweet, finish. Pretty nice brew.

    A murky orange colored beer with a small frothy white head rising briefly above. When settled, there's no lacing. A malt-pear nose that is mirrored in the tasting. With a yeasty adjunct, a well crafted beer.

    For me tripel are either good are not.. there is no in between for me.. this was good. americanized but good.

    Smells of spice, yeast, some sugar, plums and some honey. Pours hazy off orange with lazy white head that was there for a bit. Good carbonation and a medium mouthfeel with a light and crisp finish. Fruity up front flavor with some spice and hops and yeast in the middle and a slight hoppy finish... Not too bad!

    Pours a hazy sunny yellow with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, white head. Aroma is fairly strong, fruity and yeasty with a malty undertone and a hint of butterscotch. Flavor fills the mouth with mainly fruity and yeasty tones, a firm hint of malt, just a touch of sweetness and a little hop bitterness. Texture is smooth as silk and leaves a nice tingle on the tongue.

    Draft Sample @ 1702, Tucson AZ; August 2009
    This beer arrives from the tap with a n apparent brisk carbonation yet no head to speak of. The beer is a light gold color and is stunningly brilliantly clear; the lack of carbonation and the color make it look like cider. The beer somehow smells dry with some light fruitiness up front, an earthy / spicy note (coriander’ish) and some dry pear aromas. AS it warms up some tart green apple notes, a touch of pickled ginger, ample clove notes and estery higher alcohols become more noticeable.

    The beer tastes sweeter than the aroma suggested, though it is certainly not overly sweet; the sweetness is certainly accentuated by notes of higher alcohols and a clove like spiciness in the finish. There is lots of earthy spiciness to this brew that makes me think it was fermented with a Chimay derived strain of yeast; this always reminds me of dirty coriander and not in a good way. The beer is actually quite dry (the sweetness is more of an accent of the esters than of actual malt sweetness, but there are still some apparent fruit notes to this beer; lightly tart, floral pear notes and some green apple towards the finish are noticeable. A light, but prickly carbonation accentuates the spicy notes found in this beer; peppery notes mix with the phenolics and the turpene like notes really linger on the tongue, even numbing it a bit. Maybe a hint of orange zest becomes noticeable as this beer warms up. This has very little malt character to it, even for a Tripel; it is so clean it almost seems more like a Duvel inspired beer (though the dirty Chimay yeast makes this a definite deviation). This is light bodied and highly quaffable, which I do usually prefer in my Belgian inspired beers.

    This beer is not bad, but it is fairly forgettable.

    Cloudy golden appearance with a low white foma. Sweet yeasty and estery aroma of banana, canned oranges, cloves and all-spice. Full-bodied with a sweet flavour of vanned oranges, pine-apples and over-riped banana. Drier finish of pepper, grass and alcohol. A bit sweet bit the aftertaste saves this beer.

    Pours a fuzzy pale copper with a low white head. Mouthfeel has a good bite, aroma is citrusy. Flavor is light fruit with a bit of good hop balance against the sweet. All in all pretty darn good for a Belgian wannabee.

    Hazy pale orange colour, small white head. Aroma is honey, hops, some wheat and fruity. Flavour is fruity, honeyish and hoppy. A trippel indeed, but feels quite empty somehow. Hides it's alcohol quite well.
