COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With the start of spring also comes the start of America’s oldest pastime, baseball. With fresh cut grass, cool nights and sunny days, and the sound of a baseball smacking a glove, spring is the perfect time to hit the sweet lemon, pepper, and orange notes of a tripel.

swesson (209) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap at Parry's. Drank from a snifter. Pours a dark golden, orange color with a medium head that disappears quickly. A good, but not great triple. It felt a bit too lightweight to carry the name triple ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maley1 (770) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Clear golden orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, caramel, slightly floral. Taste of Belgian yeast, slightly fruity, bready, caramel and faint hops. Full bodied, lower carbonation, soft mouthfeel and slightly dry finish.

degbert (1099) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a rich gold with a high, fluffly, lacy white head. Nose is lemon, pepper, hard cheese, and sour mash. Sweet and phenolic up front, but with a lot of peppery orange behind it; substantial for a tripel, with a very rich body. Finish is long and savory, with some orange glaze notes. Good.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap at Hops and Pie. Pour is clear orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Belgian yeasty, corn, sweet fruits, somewhat phenolic, biscuit, peppers, bubblegum and straw in the aroma. Taste is green apples, pears, biscuit, basil, bubblegum, and coriander with a lightly spicy finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Decent Belgian but not as good as their other beers.

arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought candied white fruits, grass, biscuit, bread, some sweet sugars as well in there with a hint of grass, spice, yeasty notes, a bit sweet smelling. Taste is similar, goopy sweetness with vanilla, caramel, and biscuit notes, some white fruits into a touch of grass and spice, finishing very sweet.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana taffy, candy sugar, plastic, butterscotch. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Well, this is certainly the last thing I’m going to bother trying from Elevation (this makes zero for four, and is by far the worst one so far). This in no way resembles a Tripel, but is instead just a big, dumb, syrupy malt-and-sugar bomb that’s so sweet as to be undrinkable. Tripels are traditionally yeasty and dry, neither of which this offers, nor is there any aromatic brightness or depth/intrigue...this is profoundly clumsy and quite honestly one of the worst "tripels" calling itself such that I’ve sampled in quite a while.

Not a very good tripel. The spices are far too understated and subsumed within a werthers original flavor from beginning to end. Alcohol is right, but far too sweet. Jess picked this one up for me in Denver in 2013.
