COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Belgian-style triple is strong, fruity, and slightly sour. It starts with a big malt presence, followed up by a pronounced candy sugar sweetness, and balanced with a spicy hop finish. A must-try. Ask your server for a taste!

12 oz. bottle. Iím not quite sure what to make of this beer. I poured it as I would any other beer, and it didnít have any head, and sort of resembled apple cider, which seemed a bit odd, so i just thought it had a high ABV, whatever. Then after smelling and tasting, Iím thinking I either got a bad batch, or this is just a neglected beer. It kinda tastes like it was a good beer at some point, and maybe improper beer storage, etc made it what it is now. Iíve had a few other offerings from ABC all of which were pretty good, but this is the worst. oh well.

Tasted 1/4/09. 12oz bottle. Activated pour was hazy ansd sedimented. Golden brown hue. Bubbled off-white head. Typical nose, citrus and bananas with caramel malt character. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Caramel and slight pepper. Perfumy and candy. Just decent at best.

flat pour with no head and looks like apple cider. Sweet bubble gum , sour fruits and more sourness. This is not going well......Very flat......I think it might be a bad bottle......usual tripple flavors and slight alcohol on the tail end.......wow this isnt very good Im gonna dump this and try another bottle.......hold on.......nope...... extremely dissapointed.

From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008. Ultra-light yellow-white color! Very nice lacing. Super light aroma. Its flavor, though, is so much better. Light, but just a little sweet. You can detect a little alcohol presence amongst the lemon and hops. Good, but their dubbel is better in my opinion. Could use more alcohol for a triple.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish brown with lots of sediment. The head is small and white (even after a vigorous pour) and quickly diminishes to a thin collar.

The aroma is very subdued - bready grains and some bananas and cloves.

The flavor is sweet malts, a little banana and clove, and a pretty harsh alcoholic bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full and slightly syrupy with almost no carbonation.

Overall, not that great of a tripel - itís under-carbonated and pretty subdued other than the alcohol.
