Guest tap @ Mad Anthonys Fort Wayne while on a post DLD bender. Took me six fucking weeks but i finally figured out who brews this fine ale. Clear amber with a white head. Nice fruity, estery yeasty tripel aroma. Medium body with light carbonation. Good flavor starts citrusy sweet and a little boozy, with spicy yeasts. Drys out a bit for the finish with dusty pale malts and hay. The 11% is noticeable throughout but never really gets in the way. A good tripel no doubt, but like most American brewed examples of this style it’s a bit too sweet and spicy for my tastes.

Draft sample at Keg Fest. Poured hazy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that lasted with fair lacing. Complex spicy fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a good beer.

In short: Simply put, one of the best Tripel I’ve had.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy orange body with a small white head
In long: Inviting nose with floral and fruity notes. Superb malt extraction, crisp and full body. Crunchy honeyed malts, orange peels, aromatic floral notes, a light granny smith apples tartness, dry grass and citrus fruits. All the flavours I can hope for in a Tripel are there and as a bonus I got a crisp and fresh feeling that I rarely get from a bottle. Typical lively Belgian carbonation. This really is a top notch authentic Belgian Tripel. One of the best Triple I’ve ever had and certainly the best brewpub Tripel I’ve ever had. That Brugge Tripel has nothing to envy to a real Brugge Tripel. Not that it’s not real Brugge Tripel because it is the Brugge Triple, just not a Brugge Tripel. Athough one could believe it is a Brugge Tripel if he didn’t know it is actually a Brugge Tripel.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Very nice local offering, and I agree with those who said this one is underrated. Courtesy of Sprinkle. Nice smokey and yeasty aroma. Pours a solid orange color. Flavor is more of the smoke and yeast, with a big body and lots of flavor. Great balance of malts and sugars as well. Everything works together wonderfully. Very very solid and nice! Hovers between a tasty treat and a good session beer. This will be my go-to anytime I stop by Brugge, no doubt.

Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition, on tap. Very caramely with light touch of alcohol finishing it off. Indiana and tripels? A good adoption of the style. I had two.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Tried on tap at the brewery. Very nice, solid smell of banana and candy sugar. The body is thiick and full. Taste is full as well with sweet fruit and banana followed by some needed sour ending.

Wow, this overall rating on the beer is insanely low. Pours hazy / cloudy amber with a dense white head that leaves very nice lacing. The aroma has banana, earthy yeast and smooth sweet malt - more true to style than most US versions. Medium / full body that is creamy and smooth with very soft carbonation. The taste starts with lots of yeast, heavy typical Belgium tripel malt and candi sugar. The finish has some sharpness and sourness as wells as a good amount of spices. This is a great American version of a tripel that could easily compete against the true Belgium counterparts. Thumbs up for this well crafted beer.

opaque orange, frothy beige head, heavy lace, light fruity spicy aroma with hints of citrus, creamy body, balanced malt flavor with a sweet fruityness that’s well balanced with the spicy citrus character, the sweetness picks up a candy quality as it warms and becomes a spiced candy
