auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 2, 2010
On tap at Chumley’s - Lafayette, IN. Pours a glear orange-tinted gold, with a thin, superfine white slick. Light phenolic apple head aroma. Flavor is sweet, but nuanced. Nice balancing yeast character. Finishes dry and clean. A bit tangy. Aside from high residual sugars, this is enjoyable. It’s not particularly deep and complex, but for an American interpretation of Abbey Tripel, it’s fairly decent.

ITs a solid beer on tap. The first time I tried it was in a 22oz bottle and it had to be infected- sour, explosive, undrinkable. After telling the bro in law this he insisted on taking me to the brew pub to try it fresh. I was a very well balanced and taste beer on tap. I might purchase with caution in the bottle however.

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.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
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 (3738) - 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 (1018) - 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.
