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

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Very handsome pour, deep golden with a bit of flaking detectable and a lustrous head to it. Soft floral hops in the nose but mostly ripe stripes of yeast and a bundle of dry herbal additions. Nice nose but fairly perfunctory as per most American renditions I suppose. Playful mouthfeel, taste is mostly a bit sweet although some grass and spice in the finish. Comes across as fresh and clean but the taste was just average overall.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2012
22oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a small, fizzy, white head that quickly vanishes to nothing. Aroma is zesty Belgian yeast, citrus and sugary/honey malt. Flavor is spicy up front with sweet sugary malt, light musty yeast and some alcohol. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Solid beer for the style, not overly sweet.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
On tap. Hazy golden pour, slight white head. Nose of banana esters, fruit, and grains. Flavor is very fruity and a bit alcoholic. Decent.

Bottle pours hazy straw color with two finger white head. Good lacing. Aromas of bread, pepper, cloves, banana. Moderately bitter and sweet. A little bit of salt. A bit of acidity on the tail end. Body is light/medium and smooth. A nice tripel.

Leighton (11023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Not really blown away by this beer, but perhaps that’s because I don’t like tripels over 8.22%. Anyway, it’s quite sweet and certainly yeast-forward. Plenty of ripe, juicy and sugary fruits at play. There are much worse tripels out there - in the States AND in Belgium, mind you - but this one was still just OK. (3.4)

Bottle at Bruce’s, London - thanks to Ken! Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold with a slight, frothy white head. Nose holds lots of yeast, mushy bananas, sugary wheat. Medium to big sweet flavor, mild lemony tang, yeasty and lightly doughy wheat. Medium to full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sugary, vaguely syrupy finish, plenty of doughy wheat, yeast, mellow lemon and banana. Drinkable in small doses. (3.4)

theisti (3237) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 26, 2012
22 oz bottle purchased at Rimann in Prairie Village, Kansas. Bottled April 2012. The pour is light haze yellow gold with a one inch white head the falls rockily with nice lacing. The aroma is straw, hay, earth and a soft clove spice yeastiness. Nice integration and softness. The taste is initially the straw and hay then turns quickly to herbal and honey sweetness. The sweet builds, finally showing some alcohol heat before it finishes dry with more lingering sweet. The yeast clove is present, though is somewhat buried behind the honey herbal. The palate is medium bodied, a bit of slick oily mouth feel and the dry sweet somewhat hot finish. The nose on this was promising, though the taste delivered a pretty typical sweet American Tripel. Certainly not bad by any means, just not totally my thing.

dmac (4016) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2012
22 oz bomber from Spirits Middletown. Poured a rather ugly slightly cloudy yellow under a very ugly piss bubble white foam. Aroma is dried out sugary tropical fruits, yeast, dry grains and a hint of bubble gum. Medium bodied with tight bubbly stronger carbonation and a dry finish with a touch of lingering heat. Flavor of dry tropical fruits, sugary sweet even though dry like sun dried fruit, toast, yeast, old bubble gum. Not bad but a bit hot, especially for only an 8.3% beer.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pale yellow with a light white head. A really dry finish. A nice brew but not their finest.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Draft at the Flying Saucer. Pours hazy gold, not much of a head. Subtle fruits and yeast on the nose, some bread. Flavor is classic belgian. Yeasty, sweet, smooth.
