COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden colored, crisp, high alcohol Belgian-style ale. Simple ingredients lead to a very complex beer in this case. Northwest two-row malt is mashed without the addition of specialty malts for a light, golden color. The wort is lightly hopped in the kettle for minimum bitterness and imported Saaz hops give the beer a subtle, noble hop flavor and aroma.

Pours a golden clear amber with a quick fizzle of white head. Nose is fruity and aromatic with spicey hints of yeast and subtle hops. Flavor is relativly straight foward tripel. Crisp and sweet with a bold bitter body and a clean fizzy finish. Can’t wait to try more from this brewery.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a moderate white head and fair lacing. Aroma of wheat, cloves, banana, pear, and syrup from canned fruit. Flavor of honey, wheat, and earthiness with a dry, bitter, chaulky mouthfeel.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2005
12oz bottle courtesy of Liquidsolutions.biz. Pours a copper color with nary a sign of any carbonation. Has a very nice nose with tons of exotic spices like coriander and maybe even nutmeg. I want to say that this has over ripe bananas that lend a fruit compote aroma to it. Zero bitterness and lots of the fruit.I like this but it isn’t a great tripel but it is good.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 Pours a brilliantly clear full copper color, but pours without any head, though perhaps there is a small ring of pale bubbles that is generated by a perfectly capable level of carbonation. The aroma is lightly sweet with a backdrop of astringent herbal notes. There are also aromatics notes of vanilla, clove, and other lightly spicy notes. The beer itself tastes lightly sweet yet it finishes with a dry herbal note that makes me want to take another sip. There is also a lingering earthy spice note that reminds me of coriander, could also be the Chimay strain of yeast, but I am not too sure. This beer has quite a bit of spiciness to it, but it is muted a bit by the sweetness that is perhaps a little too much. For some reason this beer just seems to clash a bit, it just does not quite do it for me, the individual flavors are good, but as a whole it just does not jive; it is decent but definitely not great.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Lightly hazed golden hue, moderate head formation. Yeasty aroma with peach and honey prevalent. Sweet fruitiness on the palate, canned peaches, oranges and pears, a touch of candy sugar. Spiciness and alcohol warmth provide some balance. On the sweeter side with noticeable alcohol which makes it surprising for me to say "pretty tastey."

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Bottled. Pours an almost apple juice looking color. Aroma is mostly of yeast and is a little fruity. Sweet fruity flavor. Some smokiness as well. Alcohol is a little strong in the finish. A little bit of spice as well.

[PIBF’04] Draught. Murky golden yellow with good head and lacing. Spice and yeast in the nose. Spicy and yeasty flavors with notes of citrus. Creamy texture and finish. Good beer.

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Golden, cloudy appearance, with relative little carbonation compared to what one might expect for the style. Alcohol is very evident, and taste is generally very sweet. A decent Belgian tripel, but seems like the alcohol content was deliberately goosed up to me.

Not as smooth as the "true" belgian trippels I have tried, but a decent approximation at a nice price.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Dark orange gold, slight head, wafts of cinnamon and evergreen forest after it’s open...smooth, all most lager like malt cut by spicy alcohol, slight bannana and "slop" in the finish. Better than the last time I tried it...
