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!

Excellent taste, it taste more like a whit should. Great malt with a balance of hops. Fulfills traditional expectations of a tripel yet brings a modern hue of spice. A great conversation piece.

Appeared a medium/dark-orange in the glass with minimal head. It smelled stongly of citrus fruit and slight hops. It tasted fruity/whiney with little bite. It was definitely a smooth drink, which is probably why the menu says "limit 3".

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Thanks Metzger. Pours a golden color with big white frothy head. Hefe clove & banana aromas. Starts of with banana & clove hefe features then hits you with the Belgian yeasty & earthiness. Somewhat swet also. Decent

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2008
Tap at HDG Daze of the Devil. Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite nice and spicy. Apricot and light orange peel. A bit of clove and light banana with a soft sweetness, light honeyish character but the beer is generally quite dry and drinkable. Pepper and lightly alcoholic

On draft; poured a gold color. Aroma of banana, yeast and spices. Flavor was pretty dry to me. Pretty ordinary for the style.

pours golden, pilsner-like..aroma of spice, clove, and banana..flavor is of banana bread. honey, and heavy (almost cloyingly heavy) sugar...touches of rubber cement as well..sticky, unpleasant palate..

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 14, 2008
10 oz. tulip in the taproom. Visually, resembled a lager. Always hard for me to find aromas in the bars. Hopefully the smoking ban goes into effect soon. It would be a stretch to say some aging would tame the alcohol and bring out the flavors, but I honestly don’t think there was enough going on to save it. I would only choose it again if my options were limited or I wanted a fast buzz. This brewer needs to work in some complexity if he is to save the Phat Abbots.

3fourths (8038) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Clear gold. Sweet banana, lemon and kool-aid orange smell (yes, kool-aid). Flavor is sweet overall with a heavy candy sugar presence and some lighter lemon/banana yeast notes. Average.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 20, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Old lemons and faint spice aroma. Golden glow in clarity topped with white lace. Flavor is pure sugar syrup, oranges and phenols. A bit of mess. Way too much malt presence. Carbonation is weighed down. Alcohol snares the sinuses. Rubbery. Yeast have gotten too bold. Unpleasant.
