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.

(draught - Flying Saucer KC / keep the glass night :-) pale gold with white head and some lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast and pale malt. Flavor was Belgian yeast, a little light fruit. Really no alcohol flavor despite the 8+ %.

portableparty (2248) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle to glass. Pours pale citrus yellow orange with a quick little soapy white head that leaves a thin spotty film. Aroma is spice banana and clove with subtle hops, pepper some cracker and yeast. Taste has some subtle bitterness from the hops and a little farmhouse flavors with peppery crackers with the spice and yeast really showing through and plenty of banana and malt. Palate is slick and chalky with a drying finish.

Bif (1798) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle- Pours a hazy pale lemonade color with a good head that fades to lacing. Aroma of citrus and fruit, mostly banana. Mild malt sweetness and some spice. Taste of citrus and fruit, again mostly banana, sweet malt and bread. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, smooth and well balanced. The 8.23% ABV is very well hidden. Nice Abbey Tripel. Not an in your face, overpowering offering of the style.

Pours a pale yellow with some sediment. As it sits, the sediment slowly sits on the bottom. Heavy nose of flowers, and yeast, with some lemon grass and earth tones. Super easy to drink and not overwhelming on yeast like most in this style. Pretty good! Glad I got a few bottles!

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAY 27, 2012
22oz. bottle served in a tulip. Poured a pale gold with a couple of fingers of tight bubbled white head. Clove and Belgian spice in the aroma. Light bodied and dry. A little citrus. More spice in the finish. Nice American version of a tripel. Most seem to be sweet and flabby. Good stuff.

Beaver (1507) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is stinky musty yeast, bready malts and some bananas.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with some spices and bananas with a bit of a hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK tripel. I liked this better on tap. This seems too sweet with too much banana.

22oz bottle 5/25/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Trappist Glass-Pours a hazy yellowish golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, bread, and banana. Taste of yeast, banana, sweetness, and spices. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and not too shabby. A bit more banana than I was expecting.
