Our Tripel pours a hazy deep gold with a creamy head. Upfront aromas of fresh plums, orange, white flowers and a hint of hay evolve into aromas of caramel malt and cola as the glass warms. A very balanced flavor profile and a creamy mouthfeel lead into a light malt sweetness with a final transition into a hint of warming alcohol and soft drying bitterness.

marcus (9220) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle from Taylor’s Market, Sacramento. Pours cloudy golden with a thin off-white head and a floral fruity aroma. There is a carbonated caramel malt flavor that starts sweet, then turns grassy and bitter.

Aroma is heavily spicy and malty. The flavor is spices, a hint of white bread, citrus, Belgian yeast, malts and a slightly dry/tangy finish.

JohnnyJ (5419) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Lots of fruit, banana, candi sugar, peppery, spicy hops, bread, and somewhat dusty. A little boozy. I just don’t like this style very much.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a hint of orange and a big white head. S: As usual for tripels, there is lots of sweet malt with plenty of fruit. Big time banana and pear with just a hint of sweet apples. There are lots of spice notes, too: clove, coriander, and mild pepper. T: The flavor is very similar with an emphasis on sweet malt/bread and toffee. There is, however, noticeable booze which is the main problem with this beer. Nice spices of coriander and clove along with the same banana and pear fruit notes. M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation. O: Overall a pretty nice beer. The booze is really the only knock on it, but pretty solid.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy dark gold with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (biscuit, meal, cereal), light hops (spicy), and average esters (apple, pear) with notes of alcohol and sugar. Flavor is moderate malt, mild hop bitterness with spicy alcohol and earthy notes. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry finish.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 5, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden orange body and a white head that fades. Aromas are strong of orange peel, orange blossom honey, rye, and spicy clove. Flavors are quite dry, grainy, a bit of booze. Some candi sugar. Lively and dry. A tasty triple.
