COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As with the mythological guardian of Hades, it is best to treat this heavy hitter with respect and caution. It is innocently blond in color, and deceptively smooth. Beware!

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz bottle and pours a hazy orange color with minimal off white fizzy head. Aroma has medium notes of esters and some alcohol. Flavor has notes of fusel alcohol, and esters. It finishes with a thin ester alcoholic note. Mouthfeel medium. Overall below average not sure if i would drink this again.

Sampler in charleston, another barely subpar tripel. Yey. Bready and fiercely carbonated. No major flaws

Cast at Maxs Belgian beer fest. Cloudy yellow. Mildly hoppy, straw, lemon, pepper. Not bad.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 On draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing. Vinous aroma with notes of yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of tart fruit, yeast, malt and spice. The finish is fruity with a lingering tart aftertaste. Good all around.

Draft. Pours golden with a white head. Flavor is very sweet with a bit of spiciness, but overall bland. The alcohol is hidden very well.

Probably the third or fourth tripel Ive tried called Cerberus. (get original). Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head that leaves very good lacing. Im conflicted by the nose. It is complex and interesting, but not the nose of a tripel: Big white wine and champagne, massive chardonnay grapes, some fusel alcohol, big artifical candies in the nose, Jagermeister, licorice or something in the nose (help me out here), dried light fruits, marachino cherries, overly sweet cherry frosting. Taste is white wine, champagne, vinous, tart and boozy. Misses a bunch of tripel notes Id like to see. Unreal how much this tastes like white wine. Its really cool but not what a tripel is about. If they soured this and aged it in oak- you could get something out of this world.

Straight from the tap at Brewers Art (the greatest bar ever). Looks like a typical Tripel. Big fluffy head, golden body. Smells like malt, spiciness too. Flavor is a little less in your face than most Tripels. That being said, this beer goes down SMOOTH for 9.5% Could be a session beer, but youd be on your ass sooner, rather than later.

I was able to sample this on cask at Maxs Taphouse during Maxs Belgian Fest. Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells grassy, a tad herby with a touch of clove. Flavor is astringent with grassy hops, some light candy and plenty of Belgian yeast. Chalky on the end with no hint of the alcohol. Eh.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2009
On cask at Maxs Belgian Fest: Pours a hazy deep goldenrod with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity pale Belgian malt with lots of earthy grassy character and some bittering sulfur. Starts with a light caramely sweetness and earthy bittering hops before a drier bittersweet finish. Not much of a tripel, but an interesting brew nonetheless.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Draught in a small chalice at the brewpub. Straw yellow without much of a head (they did pour it almost to the rim though...). Not a huge aroma, but a nice spicy, herbal hops note, with a touch of pale malt and light fruity yeast character. The flavor is dry and hoppy, with light malt and yeast. Fruity hints of banana and grape. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Simple and dangerously smooth and drinkable. I could session this, but that would be a short session indeed.
