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

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours a very lightly hazy golden yellow, nice head fades slowly, quite creamy. Aroma is lightly bready, sweet pale malts, with a good fruity note and faint pepper. Flavor is a match - apricot fruit coming through, the esters yeast driven. Dry on the finish, with a lightly peppery and floral hop note. Very, very nice traditional tripel - extremely well done. Nice job Avery. Alcohol is present, but not out of balance. Might be better than this rating.

Tonkun (916) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Golden orange pour with a white head that disappears quickly. Candied pineapple, banana, floral. Creamy carbonation. Medium body with nice balance of flavor and approachability. A bit of bitterness at the end. Well balanced and easy to drink. But with nice depth and layers of flavor.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dirty gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma seems to have pineapple ester. Med body. Flavor is pineapple. Might be a banana undernote. Or not. Surprising. Yeast/spice gives pineapple? Tasty.

marcus (6787) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours bright yellow with a pineapple aroma and a thin off-white head. There is an intense sweet malt flavor that turns to slightly sour fruit with a nice yeast presence.

Poured a nice pale urine colour with an abundant head.. Nose of spice, but not enough of that spice came through in the mouth.

BigBeer45 (1273) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Two Bottles from two different stores, for a reason to be noted later, this ale had a yellow and orange juice pour with a bit of haze, and made hardly a cover, I poured fast to try to make a cover, I was unsuccessful, what little cover there was fizzed away and there were a few bubbles at the sides of the glass, there was no lacing in the glass, the bottle had a layer of light brown colored sediment on the bottom, the presentation was disappointing, even pouring the bottom of the bottle did not help to make a cover or head, the aromas were orange and peach citrus, some light pale malt, a little spice, floral and esters in the background with faint honey sweetness, there were flavors of light malt, orange citrus, faint spice and esters, the finish had some malt and fruit with a little pepper on the tongue, the mouth feel was a little watery and the carbonation was sort of flat, there was a poor presentation which was a bummer, the nose and flavor was pretty good but could have been better with more carbonation, the mouth feel was sort of flat, I tried two bottles of this beer from two different stores hoping to get a better presentation with the second bottle, unfortunately, both bottles had little carbonation.

Onionkid (370) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz Bottle. Aroma is pretty mellow, but has fruit, spice, and yeast to it. The taste is of heavy yeast with some spice, a bit of fruit (some peach, banana, some others I can’t really tell) along with some notable pepper and again...yeast! A good, well bodied beer with a solid mouthfeel and a great finish. Smooth, carbonated and to the point. This is absolutely up there with the rest of Avery’s best! 8.2% abv.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head - looks quite dull. Aroma is fairly yeast, with some dry apples and hay. Flavour is characterized primarily by the yeast and dry apples, not a traditional tripel by any means, but not a cloying sweet American "tripel" either. Finishes yeasty and apple-forward, with a medium duration. Decent, albeit forgettable tripel.
