COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers of Anderson Valley had to conjure the High Priestess of Fermentation to help them formulate and create this rare hand-crafted elixer. It is luxuriant, smooth, more that a little wild, and at 10% alcohol, it's bound to raise your spirits. Open the Bottle and greet the High Priestess. You are worthy.

MOderately flavorful...hints of citris below banana. Rocky white foam that fizzed quickly. Amber-orange color. Sweet-moderately. Lovely buttery mouth feel with a lingering taste and texture. enjoyed it, would buy it again. Will cellar it for future consideration.

This Abbey Triple is ok. Sweet, spicy, and banana flavors. Finishes clean, dry, and bland.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Apple, honey, cinnamon, granola. Amber body with a foamy cream colored head. Pretty sweet, with vodka like alcohol background. Fruit and sweet tea dominate the taste, but the background of alcohol kills this beer. The alcohol sharpness fades as you drink though to make it more plesant. But the tastes stays pretty bland, and more like a belgian ale then a tripel.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Crystal clear amber color, small white head. Aroma is crisp and clear, with candi sugar, bananna, honey, vanilla, slightly spicey. Flavor is sweet and malty, dry, with alcohol notes, a little cloying as it warms. Nicely thick palate. A nice tripel overall.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma reveals pleasant caramel sweetness and bready Belgian yeastiness with a touch of pepper. Starts with some sweet caramel toffee and nice bready Belgian complexity. A nice and authentic tasting, well balanced triple. Thanks skaughty!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Poured clear copper color. Sweet malty aroma. Caramel and alcohol. Flavor is malty, sweet and has a lightly spiced finish. Full bodied and warming.

TChrome (1440) - Bedford, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Beer pours medium orange color with an average sized, though small for the style, off white colored head that mostly diminishes. Aroma is fruity with orange, pronounced esters and yeast. Flavors include big raisin, pear, and lots of spices. Tasty.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2004
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 12.16.04 Bomber bottle. Copper-gold pour with minute head fading to a ring. Strong grape aromas, spicey, banana; major alcohol presence. Palate is oily at first, light tingle, big alcohol on finish, retronasal. A very spicey triple with lots of nutmeg, cooked pineapple, gin, apple, ginger, some flavors I can’t place. Quite good.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2004
What do you know? Another thin, sweet, boring American trippel. I gave this one a chance, against my better judgment, given how good their dubbel tasted. But no. American trippels are just plain horrible--we just cannot seem to tackle the crucial smooth mouthfeel/restrained sweetness that the Belgians master so easily.

Poured a clear red-amber with virtually no head and little carbonation. Aroma was malty and bready. Flavor was mild honey and pear, with the alcohol fairly well restrained. Short sweet finish. No much to say, as there wasn’t much to report.
