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!

Growler at the Fort Wayne tasting - Pours light amber with a very thin head. Thereís a light, sweet, yeasty aroma. The flavor is sweet and bready. This tripel is medium bodied and easy to drink. The 10% abv is buried. Itís uncomplicated, but not bad.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Tap at abc; Golden hazy blonde, great aroma of banana and clove, lavender and a hint of peach. Medium mouthfeel, smooth from start to finish. I have to say some extra carbination was present, although it did not interfere with the palate too much. A great brew.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
Sugary, malty, doughy, citrus-lemon aroma with some light higher alcohols. Opaque yellow straw coloured body is topped by decent white head that recedes to ring. Lemon-citrus cookie dough flavours with some mild phenols. Explosive carbonation offsets the heavy palate. Although itís certainly not to style, Iím certain that it is very enjoyable to imbibe. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
The Lure:
A straw yellow robe purports a savvy and creamy haystack. There seems to be a beginning of DMS, but it is actually contributing in this authentically Wallonian attraction.

The Festivities:
Lemony meringue melts into a creamy, bitter finale. Huge effervescence aptly imitates the most Wallonian brewers. Not a stylistically-correct Tripel, but who cares when you are having so much fun?

Transcendence:
Veracity breeds proficiently in the Michigan brewing scene, it seems.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
Floaties soldiers arbor this golden white headed body. Intensely sweet aroma with heavy phenolic notes and a serious DMS component. Powder sugar, corn, honey, cabbage meld into a scent reminiscent of honey cough drops in a vegetal way. Somehow, the yeast dries it up a bit on the palate, though thereís still sugary banana bubble gum flavors. At the same time, the thick mouthfeel is dominated by big bubbles that keep biting after having swallowed. I donít know what to make of this one, clearly, itís not a top tripel, but despite every critic I have toward it, I can say I generally enjoyed it.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Tap: Light amber transparent with no head. Strong apple/fruit aroma up front. Sweet malt and apple cider/sugar taste to it with hints of banana. Slight bite at end with banana aftertaste. I drank three more after the sampler.

Pailhead (5076) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2004
On tap: Aroma contains a lot of apple. Transparent gold with and orange tint. No head. Flavor has a sort of barley wine taste to it, but more sweet. Apple, cinnamon, banana bread, caramel, and raison. Slight tartness in the finish, Syruppy mouthfeel. Light bitterness in the finish. Well done.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2004
On tap: Some of the ladies I was out with made fun of the tulip glass and then had a sip and were impressed. Fairly sweet, not yeasty enough for me. The 10% is well conceled, Iíve got a good buzz.
