COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden Belgian tripel is light in body but strong on flavor. The light malts used to build the flavor are balanced by a strong hop profile. The addition of Belgian candi sugar lightens the body and adds both a higher alcohol level as well as a dense rocky white head. This will be brewed at Gettysburg and distributed in limited quantities to Harrisburg and Camp Hill..

Draft at the brewpub in Gettysburg. Pours extremely clear copper with a thin white head. Tastes sweet, syrupy, like caramel, honey. Dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet toffee, caramel, and syrup.

sonnycheeba (3301) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Tap at Gettysburg brewpub. Pours very clear bright gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is bready and toasted malts, candy sugar, floral hops, Belgian yeast, and light spice. Flavor is chewy bready malts, light toffee, candy sugar, light hop bitterness, and faint spice; mostly dry but some balancing sweetness throughout. Medium body and carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Tap at Appalachian Collegeville, 29/11/13. Listed as Trippel. Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white head. Nose is thin for the style, toffee, sugars, ginger notes. Taste comprises caramel, ginger snap biscuit, lemon rind, light booze, spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure with light boozey notes. Mediocre tripel, lacks depth, pretty boring.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Tap. Pours clear gold with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is candi sugar, Pils malt with spicy hops and pear esters. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, heavy sugars and fruity esters with a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Draught at Harrisburg location. Hazy, rich gold with healthy white head. Smells of moderate banana and spiciness. Flavor is predominantly phenolic, with banana and slight lemon underneath. Bitterness blends with higher alcohols and phenolics to make one distinct flavor. Yummy, but I would agree with the assessment that it is on the harsh end. I’d like to see more fruitiness from the yeast in here and less of that phenolic flavor. It reminds me of modeling glue.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Draught at the Camp Hill location. Pours orange-gold with small tight white head. The aroma is yeasty with some lemon, pepper, banana, and cookie notes. The flavor is bready with some raw grain notes, a slightly harsh spiciness, plenty of yeast, and a very dry finish. Pretty good, but it lacks the subtlety of a truly well made tripel.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tiny white head. Again, very sweet aroma, yeasty, reminiscent of La Fin du Monde. Average tripel body (fyi not a fan of the style, give me a dubbel any day), a light Belgian with an alcoholic kick. Meh.

Nejhleader (1222) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2007
i thought this was really good. nice thick syrupy body. BIt of a sweet candi aroma, has kinda a honey sweet taste a little bit of candi and maybe an element of spice to it. Very nice brew.

swk (5) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2007 does not count
No carbonation or head, but a subtle smokey flavor that worked okay with smoked meat. It would make a good marinade or addition to barbecue sauce.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Gettysburg. Clear with a little bit of chill haze. No head. Mildly effervescent. Sticky and sweet fruit and white grapes up front, honey dew melon makes a brief appearance. Mildly biting and bitter, but underfermented and undercarbonated, which with the heavy body does not come off well, just too heavy and rich. Disappointing.
