COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this tripel with Amarillo hops, giving it a North American twist. Aromas of malt, biscuit and citrus complement each other to produce a well-balanced take on a classic Trappist style.

Almost clear amber beer with a small white head. Palate is slightly viscous with fine carbonation. Sweet malt. Touch of something spicy - maybe cinnamon. Sweet generic fruits. Little aniseed and drying alcohol. Trace of sweet apples and pears esters. Quite a dry finish. A curious beer but not unpleasant. Light spicy aftertaste.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
650 mL bottle from the brewery. Hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. The surprisingly mild nose has sweet tangerine, cookie dough, wheat, and a touch of spice. Taste is not a whole lot different, although you can add some booze and a touch of C-hops. Bitterness in the finish may be from alcohol as much as from hops. Really well done.

neongolden (555) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
(Sample of a friend’s on draught at the brewpub, Sept 28, 2012) Poured a slightly hazed orange with a fairly frothy, lacy white head. Aroma of citrus (orange, some pith) and biscuit malt, slight yeast funk and some sugary sweetness and leafy hops. Flavour fruity orange, slightly leafy hop character, spices and pepper, very faint yeast. Light sweetness from the malt, lightly bitter and slightly boozy finish. Medium mouthfeel, lively and effervescent carbonation, alcohol not hidden but not overwhelming. Well-balanced, quite drinkable take on a tripel with good use of Amarillo hops.

Bottle [650ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o garthicus. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma is herbal, yeasty and a bit sugary sweet along with some fruit and light hops. Flavour of fruit, herbs, spices, yeast and light sugary sweetness. Light bitter, slightly alcoholic finish. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable and pleasant to drink.

2012-08-12. Very lightly hazy orange body with a nice creamy off-white head. 4+ Very interesting first sip is fruity with notes of citrusy hops, light alcohol in the finish. Very light bitterness, the alcohol is restrained on the tongue but its grip upon my throat grows slowly but steadily, which suggests it is likely stronger than it initially appears. 7+ Aroma is modest for such a big beer, mild melange of sweet malt, soft subtle sweet tangerine and modest alcohol. 7+ Very smooth medium bodied palate, softly carbonated. 3+ dangerously drinkable at first, but my body occasionally balks at the alcohol intake, recognizing that it is due more respect that my quaffing is giving it. More subtle and nuanced than expected, the hops work rather nicely with the malt. Very good. 16+ On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow, small white head. Lots of great pine hops, with slme citrus, with a great amount of spice. Some pepper, corriander, and even some cardamon. Lively carb, refreshing mouthfeel. Herbal finish with a good bitter hop bite.

bomber shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Hazy orange, solid and lasting fluffy white head. Smells like a slightly fruity trippel with plenty of dry funk. Taste follows, less funk, more fruit, less alcohol - really nice! Average body, airy mouthfeel, slightly floral and alcoholic finish. Very nice stuff.
