COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our blonde Belgian style Tripel exhibits notes of vanilla and perhaps pears.

Golden orange pour with hardly a ring for a head. Nose includes honey, vanilla, some yeasty spice, and a little toffee and butterscotch, but not in a bad way. Taste is richly sweet, and mildly tart and bitter. Palate is fuller with low low carbonation. Alcohol really isn’t noticeable unless you pair it with something that mutes its sweetness. Pretty tasty.

Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, wheat, candi sugar, coriander, clove, and faint banana and lemon. The flavor is exactly the same. Reminds me a lot of a witbier, but with a little more bready maltiness than wheat. Medium-bodied, with moderate soft carbonation. Very good.

jsquire (3537) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy gold color with a frothy white head. Spicey nose with some corriander and bitter orange peel. Very traditional triple, though maybe a little sweet. Honey and candi sugar sweetness with some clove, corriander, bubblegum and faint band aid. Some alcohol intrusion as it warms.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Pours pale orange with a nice white head. It’s very active and produces nice lace. Aromatic wheat malts, spices, and sweetness in the aroma. Definate corriander. It is quite active on the palate and produces a tangy wheat flavor that has some vineous fruityness and finishes with sweetness and a noticable alcohol. I like this beer.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Had on draft at the brew pub. Poured a clear golden orange color. Taste was very much apples, oranges and pineapple. Sweet up front, and a slight spice on the end. Very good!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Pours a hazed golden yellow with a decent but quickly diminishing white head. The nose is lightly sweet and very fruity. Very small alcohol, lightly spicy. All light malt, as it should be. Not a ton of character, but no flaws. Some small peppery notes. Creamy and substantial mouthfeel. A bit creamy. A bit acidic to lightly astringent. Fruity. The spiciness is much more forward than it was in the nose. Alcohol heat peaks out. A bit creamy. Balanced though. Lingering alcohol heat. Not a ton of dimensions, but well done for the style and packed with flavor, though not sweet and syrupy as this style can tend towards.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2008
A good, if unexceptional tripel. Nice, medium gold color, with a hints at copper and red. Nose is spicy and yeasty. Flavor is the same, though perhaps a touch too sweet. A little dry in the finish.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
A prominent bready yeast character swirls around herbal hops and cracking straw in this authentic and fluffy Tripel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the misty golden sunshine.
-The aroma is too yeasty for my tastes and borders on being vegetal.
-The spicy, herbal hop bitterness is delicate and engaging.
-Polite tropical fruitiness adds complexity.

Bottle.

HonkeyBra (3491) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Orange hazy pour with big thick white head. Fruity, spicey nose with apricots cherries, spice, oak. One of the better aromas i’ve found in tripels. Flavor is complex and clean, never cloying. Understated fruits, bready yeast and nice spice. Enjoyable. Perhaps even a tripel carythedude might like.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy lighter golden with a short cap of beige head. The aroma was thick, sweet, and warm with honey and pale malts supporting some black peppery spicage.. rather simple, but well-presented. The flavor was warm as well with honey and pale bready sweetness at the core.. black pepper, floral notes, and alcohol warmth graced the edges.. sticky with decent character. Near syrupy on the palate with fine spicy warmth throughout.. hot, but tasty.
