COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2004 Re-rate: Batch 37. Noticed honey profile and a nice dry finish. Batch 48 at the Southeastern Gathering (thanks scoobyluv). This cloudy yellow fizzer started well, but didn't finish like I wanted. Too much citrus. The claim in the description includes "honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate" - this was the missing piece to me. If the honey were present, the sweetness and fullness would've helped perfect this otherwise excellent Trippel.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2004
Sample glass, RateBeer Southeastern Gathering. Very lemony-citric, over-the-top even. Hazy, yellow and fizzy body. Lots of lemons in the flavor. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: to many lemons, just didn’t click with me.

Aroma is lemony fresh. Apperance is murky yellow. The flavor is slightly sour with some sour lemons, dough, oranges, and bananas. A spicy and tart finish. Pretty good beer.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Batch #42 Beautiful golden orange color with a very frothy white head. Spicy nutmeg, clove and corriander aroma. Very sweet apple, orange, clove, nutmeg and corriander flavors. Surprisingly dry, bitter finish. Well carbonated. Very tingly.

maltdog (615) - Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Batch #41. Uncorks with a huge pop, pours hazy straw colored. The snow white head towers above the rim of my half-filled tulip glass, just like the pictures you see of tripels but almost never duplicate in real life. Massive lacing. Spicy musk in the nose, floral, pencil shavings, apples with brie, lavender soap, hot summer hayfield. Flavors of clovey spice, 7-up, juniper or quinine, cantaloupe, herbs-de-provence, barnyard and white pepper properties, and a chemical-like bitterness (did you ever taste residual hairspray in the air?) Dilute honey sweetness, yet finishes almost bone dry. Leaves a limestone wellwater feel on the tongue. Bizarre aftertaste of bitter salad greens, kiwi, and cigar ash. Well made but strange beer- a cacophony of tastes- I can't decide if I like it or not.

1more4dessert (326) - Upstate, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
very gold and surprisingly clear for a tripel. The yeast seemed to aggregate a bit more, actually a lot seemed to have dried out in the top of the neck. Very foamy head, soft mouthfeel. Fig, raisen sweetness upfront. The finish is long, surprisingly dry and nicely bitter

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Large white head, lasting, lots of lace. Beautiful nose, citrus, melon and fruit. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Hazy gold color. Fruity, peppery flavors, yeasty, pineapple and more melon. Nice 9%er! Finish is medium dry, fruity. Think i,ve had this beer in my cellar for a little over a year now, still yummy, nice.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 Batch #47 – This beer has a sparkling clear golden body with very lively medium bubbles careening to certain death in a nice pillowy white head. The aroma is that of yeast, citrus (orange), spices (clove, a touch of ginger), and banana. The flavor is outstanding; the banana come out more in the flavor then if did in the aroma. All of the other flavors mingle together nicely to provide a wonderful flavor spectrum. The body is medium-full with a thick mouth coating finish, that also manages to be crisp and warming. There is no evidence of alcohol in the flavor and only a tad on the palate. An excellent American brewed Beligan Tripel.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 19, 2004
Hazy yellow/gold body. Tremendous creamy white head no matter how gingerly you attempt to pour. Smells of pine cones, apple juice and yeast. Tastes of malt, clove, apples and pears. Taste is sweet, light and tasty. Everything about this beer seems careful most likely demonstrative of how this beer was made. Very well made beer and most importantly, delicious. Sampled from a 750ml bottle (Batch# 33) with my cousin and good friend Ryan.
