COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Trappist yeast and Belgian candi sugar, this pale colored ale has a complex, mild spicy character. Alcohol is evident, along with a pronounced banana fruitiness from the special strain of yeast used. Our Belgian Tripel finishes slightly sweet with a clean medium body.

Draft at Crown. Pours a thick-looking deep gold, nearing orange with a persistent and fluffy white head. Nose is sweet and spicy. Notable alcohol notes as well in the nose. Peppery. On tasting, the alcohol is very warming. Sticky sweet and sharp. Malt is kind of lost overall in the alcohol and phenolic notes. Toning down the temperature of fermentation could clean this up nicely. Meh.

Spicey front notes and a bit of spice on the finish. Clean malt taste and very little alcohol burn. Golden color and a great finish on the palate. Sugary sweet and spicey.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Tap: Deep golden hue with a small frothy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of D1 Candi Sugar syrup, banana, apricot and melon rind esters, some clove and white pepper, hint of sea salt and even peaty scotch but just a hint. Red wheat and biscuity malt vapours are found under the sugary layer and around the alcohol edge. The taste matched up to the nose almost disturbingly, What I wrote about the aroma is exactly what I found on the palate. Perhaps the only difference is that the flavor profile is not quite a fruity and perhaps a tad more boozy. The mouth feel is very sticky and full-bodied for the genre. Very warming upon the finish. Overall, it does display some of the best things about an Abbey Triple and sadly some of the worse too. I say, give it a try however and see what you think.
