COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrating our 15th Anniversary this July 8th, 2011, we brewed this special Belgian inspired Trippel to commemorate the occassion. This golden ale exhuberates a nose of earthy spices mixed with a bouquet of fruit. A malty that finishes slightly dry is backed by a substantial 15% ABV, which is to celebrate our 15 years of dedication and devotion to harnessing the wonder that is beer!

Very hazy amber beer, short lived off white head. Slightly syrupy palate with fine carbonation. Semi dry. Rich and tangy dried fruits - orange with a little peach and apricot, very sweet. Mild brandy in the background, more flavour than alcohol spice but reminds you of the hefty abv. Finishes semi dry. Rich and flavoursome Tripel. Very drinkable,

Picked up the bottle at Flossmoor Station on a rainy day by the tracks. Cool little place! Light honey pour, murky, with a small tight white head. Sugary, syrupy, sticky. Lots of raw sugar, honey, toffee, caramel, and candied citrus. Fruit undertones. A bit cloying and the alcohol will hit you like a Tyson uppercut. Definitely not a favorite style for me. Still, glad I had a chance to try it.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
On tap at GTMW 2012. Hazy amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is big and fruity with mild honey, oak and yeast. Taste of ripe fruit, grains, alcohol and mild tannins. A bit too much, especially today.

MIBRomeo (2536) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pouring at GTMW 2012 Aged in mead barrels.. odd for sure. Light golden red pour no real head. Aroma was small and hard to pick anything unique out of. Palate was full well coated and thick and creamy. FLavor was very sweety syruppy sticky a light spice some honey covered bread notes. Deliciously sweet and sneaky in it’s ABV.

burg326 (3508) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2012
22 ounce bomber, poured a light hazy golden orange color, aromas of sweet sugar, light spicey yeast, light clove, honey and some wheat. Flavor is the same but the spotlight is on the sweetness, overly sweet. Should not of split this bottle with a buddy in town, should of brought to a tasting instead, struggled to finish this one.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Brown orange. Off white head. A pungent fruit aroma. Hops are tasted first along with brown sugar. Soft hops. Not bad but some odd bitterness.

arkurzynski (1459) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Sample thanks to motortoddhead. Hazy copper, almost red, with thin white head. Nose is very enticing with tons of over-ripe fruit, banana, caramel, and Belgian candy. Flavor follows suit with an super sweet candied malt middle and sticky finish. A bit boozy. An ultimate sipper that I could get used to in the right mood.

From notes. First reviewed 12/7/2011. Served on tap in a cervoise at the brewpub at the anniversary party. From notes. My pour is a very dark and cloudy tangerine color with golden edges. A small white cap is initially present but fades after just a few moments. The aroma is generously sweet. Honey, clove, golden wheat, and light pale malt all go in the same direction. There is a soft spiciness from the yeast. The flavor is intensely sweet. It is interesting for a sip or two, but then it becomes much too cloying. Pale malt and wheat bring out a honey and bread flavor, with some other light malts noticeable as well. The Belgian yeast stirs up the flavor with some cloves and general spice, but the yeast character feels outmatched. The finish is more sweetness. This is a very full-bodied beer for the style. Combined with the light carbonation, and syrupy nature of such a big ABV beer, and this tripel really sits on my tongue. Finishing my pour was fairly difficult. Between starting and finishing my glass, I consumed two other beers because I needed a break from how cloyingly sweet this was.

No heavy machinery after this one. Cloudy orange color. Apricot maybe in the aroma. Quite sweet. Unnecessarily big beer. Serving: bottle

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2011
bottle... dark golden copper, medium clarity, thin ring of head only... the aroma is not very good, weird yeast, burnt toast, honey, very hot, floral finish, all over the place and not very good... the taste is equally bad and right like the nose, sweet bomb, a touch of alcohol, sweet yeast... I was told to give this some time and it didn’t help much, too much alcohol and not very easy to drink, not sure what they were thinking
