COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed using Pilsner malt and candi sugar, this Tripel is brought into character primarily from the use of Belgian brewing yeast. Gently hopped so as to not cover up the colorful flavor of the yeast. Slight ethanol presence with a moderate sweetness to balance.

5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in New Brighton, Minnesota. Consumed on 5-14-15. Pours a clear, bright copper with beige head. Plum and caramel scents. Juicy taste features a caramel flavor. Quite sweet. Red apple and red grape flavors. A little too sweet but good. Light body for the style.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty with some spices. Strong flavor with heavy malt and yeast presence yet also sweet with banana notes and more spices with alcohol coming through as well. Medium bodied; medium carbonation. Toward the end, alcohol presence becomes more prominent. Not bad.

Draught at the brewpub. A bright gold beer. No head and little carbonation. Mild aroma with light spice and yeast. Flavor is just a little sweet, some coriander, and sweet malt with yeast. A little thin on the palate.

@ Barley John’s, on draught: I don’t know if I got a bottom of the barrel run, but the aroma was almost non-existence and the palate almost tasted flat. The flavor is similar to the other reviews. Distinctive Belgian candi taste and a hit of ethanol on the tail end. Sweet trickle aftertaste. A pleasant drink, but maybe not the right barrel.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Winterfest 2008. Gold color with yeasty aroma and plenty of spice. A little banana in the body that was otherwise sominated by an excellent yeast profile.
