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.

Malty_MacHops (641) - 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 (3160) - 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 (3050) - 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 (7112) - 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.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2012
22oz. bottle, dated April 2012. Sweet, fruity, floral aroma, lightly honeyish and perfumed with hints of melon, pineapple, clove and banana esters, licorice and lemon, some faint doughy touches and spice as well. Hazy light-medium golden in color, with a fine, fading head. Flavor profile is sweet, very mildly tart, fruity and full of clove and peppery spice, more honeyish tones and tropical fruit here, with a very gently bitter finish that moves more towards the dry side of the equation, closing with a tinge of grassy hop. Smooth and low in effervescence on the palate, very gently warming but otherwise not showing much trace of the alcohol. Solid and interesting effort, quite pleasant and a nice change of pace for this brewery.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of some citrus hops, sweet bready and grainy malts, Belgian yeast, coriander and other spices, and lemon zest. T - Starts off with a mix of citrus hops, some light bitterness, some sweet grainy malts, some lemon zest, and coriander. Through the middle, some more Belgian yeast comes through with some more spices, and a bit of farmhouse flavor. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts, Belgian yeast, spices, fruity esters, and lemon zest. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, spicy, and estery finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced Tripel. Very smooth.

dfinney23 (2391) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Hazy, pale yellow with a disappointingly thin white head. Fruit, spice and Belgian yeast notes but lacking the balance and complexity found in the best of the style.

Brouwerij (958) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours a hazy straw color with a finger of quickly dissipating white head, some lacing. Aromas of bread/dough, wheat, malt, and mild fruity banana hints. Slight hop bite up front, fading into sweet belgian tones, wheat, banana. Mild malty wheat finish that lingers. Good job masking the alcohol. Soft carbonation and medium body. A tasty beer.

J_man (836) - Tustin, California, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Initially when this was cold it had an aroma like an American lager with clean cereal malt. As it warmed up, the Belgian spice and yeast came out. Lemony orange with almost no head at all and cloudy. Nice black pepper spice and a bit of wild Belgian yeast followed by a a flowery honey and light caramel sweetness. It dries out after this and alcohol becomes evident but not overpowering at all. Seems to evaporate on the finish leaving behind the pepper and a dry bitterness along with lasting honeyed sweetness. Very nice Belgian style triple.

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2012
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy yellow, brief head. Fruity nose with some marzipan and white wine. Mid sweet, medium-full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some crystal malt. Marzipan and orange. Warming finish.
