This beer is an American adaptation to the classic Belgian style of beer known as a Tripel. Historically Tripels were brewed to have a very light golden color, a moderate hop presence, and be around 9% alcohol. But we are not in Belgium, so I decided to crank up the hops, dry hop the beer with American Amarillo hops, and brew it to 10% ABV. This is our American Tripel, enjoy. Sensory Profile: Enjoy in a goblet or wine glass. Tropical fruit and honey are the two biggest aromas coming from this lively brew. While the hop bitterness is not as powerful as an IPA, the hop flavor melds nicely with the fruity flavors created by the imported Belgian yeast strain used. Food Pairing: This beer goes great with roasted vegetables, fish and rotisserie chicken. And it can be used as a aperitif before dinner with shrimp cocktail.

A yellow hay color extremely cloudy, decent head retention lingers. Black pepper yeast aromatics, soft peachy fruit aromatics and sweet honey. The flavor on this thing is huge fruit mango, peach hop flavor. Overall very drinkable, American triple fully appreciate the unique play of this style.

(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Not much else to it. Some hop bitterness in the flavor but predominantly fruit, honey and yeast with some spice coming up at the end.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with minimal white head. Aroma of fruit, Belgian yeast and a little burnt diesel. Taste is light bitter. Earthy herbal and citrus with Belgian yeast and some butterscotch. Full bodied with a somewhat thin and slick texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, pretty darn good.

Bottle. Poured golden with off-white head that went away quickly. Nose was hops yeasty malt, spicy in the white peppery sense. Tasted hopcitric, dry, with finishing spiciness, florals, and hops.

2006 vintage. Hazy golden-orange with a ton of floaties. Excellent aroma - floral, orange juice, lychee. Flavour - not as good, bit past it's prime, but still some nice lychee notes and moderate sweetness. Quick finish with nice pineapple juice notes. Ended up enjoying it more than I expected from first impressions.
