The hallmark of Belgian Triples are fruity esters balanced with a dry finish that fall in the range of 7-9% ABV. And for this year’s 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beer—something unusual considering our penchant for producing eccentric beers that defy styles or categories.

In excited anticipation of 20 years and the new brewery, we concocted this very traditional, yeast driven, dry and fruity Tripel.

22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Pours a cloudy, bright golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is big doughy Belgian yeast, pale malts, a light herbal hopping, some banana esters, and a light clove phenol. A light pear and orange fruitiness. Flavor is similar. Big doughy Belgian yeast up front with a bready pale malt backing. Some lemon and orange citruses with a nice pear as well as a light clove spice and banana ester in the middle. Herbal hopping gives this a medium-light bitterness and helps it dry pretty nicely. Finishes with lots of doughy yeast, clove, and a bit of a zesty lemon citrus. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a medium-light carbonation with just a slight alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent tripel. Lots of doughy yeast, a pleasant dry herbal hopping, some clove and banana, and a light fruity zestiness. Nice beer.

On tap. Good white head, leaving plenty lace. Nice hazy bright yellow color. Nice light fine carbonation, good crispness. Nice dry finish. Easy to drink, refreshing even, yet more of a full body. Fruity citrus peel, nice spice, good yeast body - really nice flavor. Something like bread dipped in the olive oil dish at an Italian restaurant, with good amount of pepper over sprinkled over top. That savory component, but it refrains from being too heavy with that light bright zesty sweetness, and crisp body. I really like this. It’s hot and humid here, but I’m in the shade with a fan, and this is hitting the spot.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a golden copper color in the glass. It has a floral and citrus aroma, very refreshing. Taste has some banana’s, spice and carbonation. I’m surprised at the high alcohol content because it doesn’t taste that strong. Good beer though.

Cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Looks like Witbier or Saison. Herbal aromatics. Disappointing palate, a bit soapy. Herbs overwhelm everything.

TheBeerGod (6025) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a rapidly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet with tropical fruit, floral hops, yeast, candi sugar, sweet malt, sponge cake notes and soft spice. Taste is sweet malt, wheat notes, bubblegum, dusty yeast, dried flowers, floral hops, tropical fruit, rum cake, and candi sugar. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation and a mild alcohol warmth. Ends with more yeast notes, malt, candi sugar, straw, soft booze, sponge cake, and light spice.

bu11zeye (12752) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2012
(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, herbs, florals, soap, banana, light medicinal, and citrus. Flavor of yeast, grain, straw, pear, herbs, and peach.

thegreenrooster (4030) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is cloves, banana and some fruity esters. Flavor is the same, lots of clove and banana with some spicy fruit and sugar. What ever yeast they used really did its thing. A little low carbonation compared to some Belgian triples but this is quite tasty.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Serving: 22 oz. bottle at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a hazy yellow with large and active white head. Lots of carbonation in this brew. The nose is all bubblegum. The flavor is a mix of bubblegum, candy sugar sweetness, and banana. Light to medium body with high carbonation and a lingering finish. Tastes like a dumbed down tripel. It definitely doesn’t hold a candle to the more complex Belgian versions.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Pretty nice beer. Bit sticky, seems more than 8%, nice Belgian character, almost saison-like, thick feeling though. Nice doughy fruit flavor that seems quite traditional.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light golden, slight haze with a small white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, spicy and citric, slight doughiness, a bit peppery. Flavor starts with a lot of the banana esters, a touch candyish which then gives way to the spicy and slight pepper note, finishing fruity and a bit citric, just a touch boozy. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Pretty nice
