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

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 (549) - 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 (11450) - 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 (8214) - , 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 (4831) - 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.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
A fizzy yellow tripel. Faint yeast aroma of fruit, earth and spice. Flavor is booze and peppery Saaz hops. Not much else, really. Moderate bitterness with a boozy and short bitter finish. This is easily the worst Tripel I’ve ever had.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Crisp fruit and honey with a touch of yeast and dough. Slightly hazy golden with a fizzy white head. Balanced with fruity notes and a touch of herbal hops bitterness. Strong carbonation with a balanced body and finish.

vipinvelp (2130) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2013
Somewhat hazy golden yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is bit weak, low bitter, also sweet. Not caramel, more like orange. Taste is bitter, again not too much. Some sweetness precent. Short bittersweet aftertaste. (Houston 201301)

jrob21 (2529) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
A little on the burning band aid side of the equation so not working in a great way for me. Pours cloudy gold with a white head and thick full lace. Spice and citrus aroma. Some clove and licorice. Full body and sweet. Lemon and fruit flavors. Can’t get past the finish though.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12/16/12. Bomber from 5 Points. Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head that fades and doesn’t lace a ton. Spicy yeast aroma with light sugar, a touch of alcohol, and methinks a hint of brett coming around. Slightly sweet entry with sugar, orange, and yeast, followed by plenty of bitterness and a nice dry bite. Tasty.
