COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hop Variety: Bravo, Czech Saaz
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, Wheat, Oats
Yeast Variety: Achouffe

Lupulucid (189) - - JUL 11, 2013
Bottled April 2012. I would really have liked to try this beer fresh. By now hops have faded significantly and bitterness is all that’s left. Malt is fighting the brave fight, so the beer is still drinkable and has some interesting flavor from yeast. The beer is wildly acidic for a Belgian style which is rather interesting and appealing in its own way.

Bomber. Sweet, yeasty wheat aroma with banana notes. Pours bright golden yellow with a little bit of a white head. Good trippel with a strong wheat flavor to start with a sweet, smooth dry finish. Good, refreshing beer especially in the summer time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a vibrant glowing yellow liquid that had white tint as it looked similar to a wit style and as far as the head, there wasn’t much development except an o-ring around the circumference of the pint glass. Aroma is mild with grassy hay like scent of grained barley malts but with just the right touch of Belgian Abbey tripel yeast that intrigues my interest in how it will taste. There is very subtle and almost bland except a minor spicy yeast flavor and a heavy presence of wheat. This is a pleasant and easily quaffable beer on a warm summer night but considering the fact that this was a one time only anniversary recipe it won’t be a memorable beer like those other few recipes Avery created to celebrate other years.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. The pour’s hazy gold with a small head. The nose is peaches, apples, molding forest fruits. Earthy yeast. The taste is very sweet peach syrup. Some pears. Chewy malts. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, OK.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottled April 2012.
Appearance: The body is a beautiful amber hue with sediment in the semi-clear body. The head is short with rather poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is clean and enticing with hints of banana, subtle spices and a touch of pear.
Taste: The intro is fruity right away reminding me of either an apple or a pear, quickly the flavor becomes chalky with light banana and slight spices. The finish becomes dry and a bit watery. There’s some off-flavors in here that remind me of water with a slight chemically flavor. Not digging this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Overall: There’s something off here, it reminds me of poor quality tap water. Not interested in this.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is candy, spice, earth, hay, icing sugar, apricot and peach. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange, apricot, peach, spice, earth, pear drops, melon and sherbet with dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Hides abv pretty well. Ok, but nothing special.

Bottle shared by a friend. Opaque orange in appearance with a thin white head. Malty and slightly herbal nose with banana, honey and tropical fruit notes. Malty and peppery flavor with a banana and mango finish.
