COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Initially only available on draft. Draft version brewed in Irvine, bottled version brewed in San Jose.

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 (6022) - 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.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50cl: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is mildly spicy, somewhat yeasty, and fruity. Taste is much in the same category. There is not so much a traditional tripel taste as it that of a Belgian blonde. Not to say that this is a bad thing. Mild hoppiness. Not particularly interesting.

Metalhead (623) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2014
I bought this because it was on sale at $3.99 for a 550ml bottle. The pour was nothing amazing. gold color with a small short lasting head. Aroma was faint. Had to stick my nose in the glass to get anything at all which was mild candied fruit and a bit of floral scent. The taste and mouth feel are NOT creamy but rather dry especially in the finish at both 45 degrees and a bit over 60 tho it did get less dry as it warmed. Overall a second rate Tripel at best.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottled version from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid orangy copper with 1-finger frothy white head. Nose is floral, with orange marmalade, mild spice, pale malt. Tastes tart, lactic, with pale malt, cobwebby esters, and an old aley finish. A bot unorthdox, and more of a Belgian golden ale.old ale hybrid than a triple.
