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.

Poured into a goblet. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow wheat color. Just a whisp of fizzy white head formed then fell just as quickly. 4.0 S: This is a nice, earthy tripel. Not overly fruity like some - just right. Honey, pepper and clove spiciness dominate the nose. Hay and grassy hoppiness. Lightly floral with a dirty earthiness that I like a lot. Mildly yeasty. Overall, solid. 3.5 T: Like the nose, this is earthy and spicy. Honey, pepper, and clove are again the leading flavors. Hay, grassy, flowers, earth to follow. Not a lot of complexity, but what is there is done quite well. 4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good carbonation level for the style, but on the lower end. Spritzy, light, and fluffy. Good here. 3.5 D: Good overall effort. Lacking in the complexity department, but other than that I have no complaints. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012 03:53:10

This an excellent tripe,. Looks and smells light. The flavor is simple but easy to drink and tasty. Nothing out of the ordinary but done well.

Draft @ Sunset Grill and tap. Tulip shows a completely hazy bright gold. Retention for days, sheets down the glass. Big aroma of fruity esters of cloves, bananas and pears. The flavor features the yeast. Again mostly banana, sweet pears, sweet malt / bread and candi sugar. Mild hop bitterness and a dry finish. Chewy thicker body. ABV is hidden well. Overall this is well above average in style regardless of what others say. I would drink this any day of the week. Not sure how it translates into a bottle but I was happy with it on draft!

Marheb (5021) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pas mal sur le style, mince en bouche et pas mal sucré. La levure belge est bien contenue mais les saveurs sont un peu grossière comparativement aux versions classiques.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, light to moderate perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pear and pepper in the background. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation, and a lightly alcoholic finish. A very tasty beer, reminds me of Springtime. Maybe not as Tripel-ish as the standard, but enough so to deserve it’s high score.

Darwenus (908) - Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
The color is nothing special, it’s yellow and hazy with a medium head. The aroma is fairly standard for a triple, bananas and citrus and a little bit of hops, with that usual, mildly cabbage-like tone in the background. The taste is pretty good. There’s enough malt in the finish to surprise me a little bit. Overall, no better than the Trader Joe’s Belgian I bought on the same day, but it cost a hell of a lot more than the Trader Joe’s did.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2013
22oz bottle. Medium white head that mostly dissipates atop cloudy apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, spicy, coriander, some cotton candy, light straw, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, coriander, some spicy/dusky, straw, cotton candy. Somewhat dry finish, medium body that’s somewhat undercarbonated.

jtclockwork (14999) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with white head. Nose and taste of spicy pepper hops,apple skin, yeast, harsh spice and lemongrass. Slight off notes throughout. Boozy in the finish. Medium to fuller/medium body.

EithCubes (5634) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bomber. Nose is lightly lemon-citric with lovely Saison-like herbal and floral accents, pale malt and light yeast, touch of chalk, some additional grassy hops with the sweetness, plenty of fruit. Pours a clear, bright yellow-golden with a quickly dissipating head. Taste is more complex than a ’normal’ tripel, tons of great Saison notes here, heavy clover honey with floral tones and sticky malt, overripe fruit and a touch of scratchy chalk, gentle but enveloping bitterness, alcohol plays a restrained and sophisticated a role and contributes most in the warming throat and chest. Oily, slick medium body, spicy yeast, all about the yeast, even have some yeasty bread on the back end. Noble hops and are noble but modest, and the overall experience announces its modern hybridization while flashes its traditional roots. A pleasant sipping experience and much better than recent anniversaries from Avery.
