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 yearís 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beerósomething 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.

I almost didnít buy a glass of this - the sample I had at the bar tasted like a cross between a wheat beer and cough syrup. But Iím giving it a shot anyway... just because Iíve had everything else available at Flying Saucer San Antonio. It has a solid, medium-orange color and a dense, bright white head that reminds me a little of frothy egg whites. Its aroma is unique, but good... a slight perfume thatís almost floral shoves its way into the nose, then continues to decorate with a sweet, alcoholic, almost cherry-like alcohol stickiness. Itís a really nice bouquet, actually. In the mouth... not as fun. It has a very smooth and practically silky mouth feel, but thatís where the smoothness stops. Itís flavor is a little awkward, and almost uncomfortable. I will admit that the beer is well-brewed and very interesting, but itís just too weird for me and not really that great of a drinker. Thereís an unmistakably oat or wheat-like undertone to the beer thatís a little excessive, and a slight sour or astringent resulting finish combines with the almost cough syrup-like alcohol and fruit character to cause me to make some serious inner and outer faces. Sorry, Avery... but sometimes you can mess a good thing up.

On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a clear yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is a floral hop and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with a light fruity malt and yeast and light dry finish. A good tripel from Avery.

The aroma is yeasty, spicy, malty, and fruity. The appearance is cloudy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a good beer but not great.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bomber from Samís, 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.
