COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kerberos is the Greek name for the three-headed hellhound that guarded the gates of the underworld, making it more than worthy of protecting the contents of this bottle.
We used the finest imported Pilsner malt and Belgian candi sugar to give this beer its’ light malt flavor and color, accented by the complex flavors and aromas imparted by our unique yeast strain.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Hazy medium orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is a bit unusual for the style in a way that is hard to describe: fruity, hints of berries, brown sugar, boozey notes reminiscent of rum. Very low on carbonation with a light, slightly viscous body. Has a bread, grain, and caramel flavor up front, burnt sugar, some citrus. Not near as fruit as it smelled, but with very strong sugary flavors. Doesn’t really feel like a tripel.

Benzai (10060) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
Hazy golden color with a small pretty fast diminishing head. Smell light malts, light sweetness. Nice taste, full body, good carbonation.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2011
Triple with amazing color, which is a good interpretation of a triple, although it too sweet.

Kristall-König (2475) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2011
Hefiger, leicht süßlich-weinartiger Geruch. Antrunk sü0ßlich und trocken-hefig. Kräuterige Mitte mit würzigen Noten. Nelkig-zimtig und betont bitter im Abschluß. USA-Tripel - interessant, kann einem Delirium tremens jedoch nicht das Wasser reichen.Test vom 17.4.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

skoisirius (1845) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Had this once a few years back, pretty sure this still is not sold in Washington state. Big orange zesty kind of nose. Smells like an imperial wit of some sort. Same kind of citrus notes in the flavors blended with some bread and Belgiany sugar notes not blended together all that well. Just doesn’t really taste like a Triple...

Japalo (1467) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle. Faint aromatic caramel cereals hay. Hazy light Golden. Medium head and body. Slight sweetness and short nonbitter finish. Searching for the yeast flavours!

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Unique and welcomed take on the style aromatically with bubble gum and strawberry notes peering above the classically dry attic nose. Hazy sunset, fleeting white head. Sweet honey body, ample weight, darker more robust middle, approaches a balance in the finish, though remains malt driven accented with some herbal notes from the yeast.

mile (3427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty – wheaty and fruity sweetish aroma, some banana and yeast, faint spiciness. Body is medium, malty – wheaty and fruity sweetish flavor, yeast and some spiciness, faint banana and hoppyness, some alcohol. Finish is average, malty – wheaty and lightly sweetish, fruitiness with some yeast, alcohol. Sweetish fruity tripel, too much alcohol considering the body.

TET (2112) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Golden yellow beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is quite strange, but interesting, bananas, some fruits, spicyness, like combination of hefe and tripel. Taste is similar than aroma, cooked bananas, fruits, yeast and some drying spicys. Almost full bodied with enough of carbonation. Weird, hefe-tripel hybrid, quite tastefull and succesfull beer.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. An unusual tripel. Hazy golden pour with almost no head. Has a wit tones about it. Yeast and banana on the nose followed by spices and bread. Sweet malts and light citrus come through int he flavour. Decent enough but there are better tripel’s out there for the price
