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.

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

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2015
12 oz single, bottled 3 months ago, purchased at Molly’s Spirits and drank during game 4 of the NLCS. Pale orange and slight hazy appearance with a small, lingering white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light candy sugar, clove, orange peel, light peppery spice, coriander, herbal hops and lemon zest. Similar flavor, moderate sweetness balanced by a mild hop bitterness. Medium to full body with a light syrupy feel. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Set One (esp. Heroes > Rebirtha), from 10/24/99, Eagles Ballroom, The Rave, Milwaukee, WI

omhper (21886) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Sugar cane and marzipan up front. Very sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Syrupy sweet with dough and marzipan. Some hay and pineapple White pepper and honey in a mid bitter finish. Just too sweet and clumsy.

Huge esters without the big boozy aroma. Flavor is lots of candy sugar, hints of farm and nice tropical fruits. Not too alcoholic and big for how high in abv it is. Great Belgian brewery!

Everything I expect in a Belgian Tripel. Great Belgian yeast character in the nose, full bodied, finishes medium-dry. Alcohol is spot on for the style. Enjoyed a 12oz bottle of this and will go back for more.

onceblind (6101) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Clear deep golden with a thin foamy white head. Lovely gentle wheat and booze and blonde Belgian malt nose. Smooth and semisweet flavor with a touch of dusty Belgian blonde sweet malts, a bit of sweet grains and a bit of alcohol heat. My words don’t do it justice but this is just as good as the St. Feulian triple. Authentic, clean but complex. Wowee.

RSRIZZO (1905) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 40°. Its a slightly hazy gold with light carbonation and almost no head. Aroma is mild fruit and yeast with a note of sweetness. The medium body gives a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. A bold yeast flavor comes in up front with a little tropical fruit and just a touch of citrus, then ending with a bit of pepper. In the after taste the citrus stands out with a sour note coming out of the yeast giving it a Belgian feel. Overall its a tasty Tripel.

notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2015
12 ounce bottle - mostly clear gold - minimal lace - nose is highly sweet, with some caramelized sugars, tropical fruit, light muskiness, mild dusty yeast and phenilocs, alcohol - a bit thin in the mouth - flavor is a bit sweet up front and gets pretty boozy and hot through the finish - the middle is decent, with some tropical estery character, moderate bitterness, white pepper, floral hop notes - overall though, it’s pretty weak.

3fourths (8795) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Draft at the brewery in Poncha Springs. Clear rich gold with a white head. Banana and white grape esters, mineral-like phenolics, light burn of alcohol, crisp and cracker-y malt actually seems Belgian-like, as does the effervescence and lip-smacking sweetness. Fluffy carbonation contrasted with sharp malt and phenols, peppery and prickly and salivating and nicely warming in the mouth and throat, and it’s thankfully clean front to back. This brewery has shown promise before with the Kolsch, and I’m pleasantly surprised to find the Tripel so enjoyable from tap (never having bought the overpriced bottles that came to Boulder county after seeing Ernest drop a low 2 on it).

Overall, nice. Two demerits. Not getting much Belgian yeast. And a tad too sweet.
