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 (297) - 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

notalush (5360) - 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 (8602) - 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.

BOLTZ7555 (2969) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Alright, our first hick-up with Elevation. This one just doesn’t cut it. Not a fan of the style at all, but this beer barely shows it belongs there. Light straw pour with a dense ivory crown. Bright citrus, tart Granny Smiths, spice...missing the sweetness (which I’d normally appreciate and enjoy). Need to go back to the recipe on this one...
