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

MartinT (8661) - 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.

Orange hazy pour with big thick white head. Fruity, spicey nose with apricots cherries, spice, oak. One of the better aromas iíve 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.

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.

(draught at brewpub) cloudy deep orange-yellow with spare bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum and other fruit esters. Taste of banana, doughy bread, and other fruit esters. Light mouthfeel thatís lightly carbonated.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Opaque, hazy gold with a tighly packed layer of tight bubbles on top. A sweet and spicy nose of lovely citrus and yeast. Lemon, cloves, fresh dough, wheat, vanilla, corriander and light banana. The body is thick and full, due to what appears to be loads of suspended yeast. The carbonation is nice, but canít quite cut the weight. The flavor is pretty nice. Sweet, some fairly pronounced, but not overpowering, spice and a bit alcohol. The finish is long and warm, but definitely satisfying. Not my favorite from Brugge, but a treat to try and something I would drink again.

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

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Indiana Microbrewers Festival: Golden hue with a small frothy head. The aroma is a bit funky and acidic, some pepper, cardamom, ginger, apricot, grassy esters along with bready malts and a hint of Belgian sugar. The taste is twangy and fruity with an aggressive boozy nature. The finish is yeasty and spicy. Mouth feel is sharp and highly warming (then again I just noticed that is 11% ABV so I guess that makes sense now). Sort of weird almost hybrid beer but it does grow on you after awhile.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Nose is peppery, yeasty malt with apple, and some caramel, but mostly yeasty pepper. Flavor is malt, yeast, pepper, apple, and a twinge of sweetness. Decent tripel.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Draft. Very small white head with a short retention span, hazy body with no visible carbonation, no lacing and a straw yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, fruity, bready malt, sugary, and some pepper notes. The flavor was sweet, fruity, the ABV definitely came through, spicy, malty, and yeasty. The mouthfeel was tingly and a medium bodied beer. Refreshing and worthy of a try.
