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!

Bottle from May ’04. Eruptive opening. Large white head forms with irrational exuberance. Hazy yellow, some floaties. Sweet candy smells with Saaz hop notes. Very reminiscent of a wheat beer. First taste is sweetish but not terribly so. Malt and yeast make appearances. Plenty of carbonation. Dryish in the middle peppery tastes. Finish is hoppier than expected. Fairly pleasant

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Yellow. Chalky, powdery, fresh perm-like nose. Quite odd really, possessing a sweet & doughy maltiness, spicy hops and a hint of wheat. Dry, light, sugared flavor, somewhat metallic, with hints of titanium, orange, coriander and phenols. On the finish, candy sugar comes through along with well pronounced spicy hops. Yummy.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Draft at 2004 MBG Summer Festival. Formed a very small off-white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. Uncarbonated, transparent and a yellow hue. Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Malty, banana, spicy and clove flavor from start to finish. Smooth and somwhat of a watery-thin mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied beer that had sparse lacing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival Saturday July 24, 2004. This draft brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent uncarbonated and yellow in color. The aroma was nice like a Belgian Triple should be with fruity wheat dough and malty notes. The mouth feel was smooth and flat with a lingering malt finish. The flavor was malty wild mild fruity coriander notes.

Deeply disappointing. Flat, suuuuper thick (the consistency of a canned mushroom) - way way too sweet. Has a final bit of hop that helped a tad. It wasn't mine - if it was I would have sent it back.

Ugh. Tastes like someone dissolved a big fluff of cotton candy in a mediocre wheat beer. A definite misfire by ABC.
