COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 3rd beer in the monastic series. This tripel represents all the elegance of Belgiumís influence upon the beer world. Think of the malt as the canvas and the Belgian yeast as the artist. Notes of banana and pear float off the soft white head derived from high quality pilsner malt. As the beer warms notice the spiciness that this beautiful yeast imparts into the beer. A light dosing of Tettnager hops adds a slight bitterness which helps keep the sweetness of this beer at levels of pure enjoyment. At first glance, this is a simple beer with no specialty malts and little hops used. Then take a sip. This isnít white wine, this isnít an IPA. This is a showcase of beauty in a glass, and proof that beer is earthís greatest beverage.

Vibrant orange pour with average white head. Aroma of citrus and very mild spice. Flavor is super smooth, citrus driven and slightly lemony. Very awesome.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Draft at brewpub. Pours clear golden amber. Small white head, minimally lasting. Fruity, yeasty, banana, clove, bubblegum. Nicely hidden alcohol. Thankfully not sticky or syrupy. Fairly sweet, moderate bitterness. Good balance. Not overpowering. Very nice. Iím convinced...

On tap at the brewpub. Comes golden red with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, malt, and spice. Taste is yeast, malt, apples, bananas, spice, and grain. Excellent.

deekyn (1169) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
On tap at the brewery. A - pours a golden orange with a light finger if off white head. Virtually no lacing. S - good spicy Belgium yeast. Pepper, cloves, bubble gum, white wine grapes, banana esters, pear, honey dew melon, buttered popcorn, dry cleaning chemicals and the pilsner malts all show well. Some musty farmhouse also persists in the back of the nose. M - medium oily bash with a sugary medium to heavy palate. Good carbonation. T - Belgium yeast, bubble gum, and pilsner malts are up front. Fruity esters follow. Banana, pear and melon all show in the middle with a resurgence of the malts. Honey and rose hips too. Ending is pepper and cloves with fruits lingering. some alcohol in the end with zinc accents. Not a tripel person but this was very enjoyable.

clear golden amber pour with small white head. Aroma of white wine, pears, yeast, very fruit forward aroma. Taste of pears, caramel, slight yeast. Full bodied, perfect carbonation. Simple beer, perfectly balanced and a joy to drink. Excellent beer.

Poured up at the brewpub where it exhibits a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up a nice load of a fruity ester like mix of apples, pears and apricots and then it hits a touch of grainy malts as some fruity Belgian candi sugar and yeasty spices come to the surface. Cool. The taste begins with a mild yet inviting grainy maltiness before the thick honey covered sweet ripe green apples, sweet Belgian candi sugar and bit of ripe apricot join in the fun. To midway sweetness smoothed out yeasty Belgian spices come to the surface adding interest against the thicker sweet notes. Nice and easy drinking for the style with everything lined up with a pleasing degree of balance.

DesertDevil (503) - Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2013
On tap in a snifter at the brewery. Fruity nose of soft pear, a touch of mango, and a heavy dose of pilsner malt. Pours a hazy light orange with a moderate white head. Damn tasty, with light banana esters, green apple, bready malts, a light white grape note and oakiness, and a slight bitterness to finish. Iím normally not a big fan of tripels, but this one is delicious.

Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Loads of wonderfully fruity aromas and flavors live in this one! Pears, banana, yeast, tinges of oranges. Sweet up front with a very light and welcomed bitterness. So damn good.

Clear yellow pour, aroma is yeasty, with bits of lemon and banana. Taste - butterscotch lemon, yeasty with a fairly soft mouthfeel, finishes slightly bitter. Very nice triple.

At the brewery, orange gold pour with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is a little earthy with some yeast and banana notes. Taste has the pear and belgian sugar sweetness and damn smooth. Danger, the alcohol is well hidden. Too many of these will put you down for the count. Awesome brew!
