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!

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.

Let it burn! This Tripel has a solid amount of alcohol and you feel every bit of it. It like a giant glass of malted pineapple. Itís good heavy beer made for sipping.

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.

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.

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".

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.

Bottle from trade with kmweaver. Thanks Ken! Pours a hazy light golden color with a dent size white head. Aroma of wheat, bananas and cirtus. Taste is semi sweet that resembles a wheat beer. Has a smoothh dry finish. Nice easy to drink brew that has a crisp clean flavor.

On tap at the brewpub last December. Reviewed from notes. Pours a slightly darkened golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is of pear, clove, apple, yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Taste brings a bit more booz along with some moderate spicing and general fruitiness. Feel is medium with good carbonation and some warmth. Drinks fairly well and was a pretty good brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-12-2010

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.
