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 itsí light malt flavor and color, accented by the complex flavors and aromas imparted by our unique yeast strain.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Light golden color with a modest off-white, fairly bubbly, head that diminishes fairly quickly. Heavy wheat aromas, mild yeast and floral components as well. Hints of bubblegum and a dash of spice (cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg) in the nose also. Sweet flavors form the start. Light malt, wheat and honey stick to the palate. Mild has a touch of light fruit. Finish has a note of citrus and wisps of alcohol. This is a bit sticky and thick for my kind of tripel, but on par with many Belgian Strong Blondes and even some tripels. Not a bad effort.

bottle. Not that bad. This brewery has sunk into the oblivion, but this is a nice peppery tripel which was much better than its overall site rating suggested.

LinusStick (3014) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Ugh! What a terrible tripel. I wasnít expecting much to begin with but this was almost a drainpour. Aroma was weak and hard to fing. Some bread, yeast and grain. Pour was a flat medium gold with no head. Taste was very sticky, yet thin. Not much flavor in the front, but then apple, sugar and coriander comes up in the aftertaste. Little to no carbonation. Terrible.

3fourths (8637) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle sample is clear and filtered yellow. Semi-sweet and spicy nose of apple syrup and candy sugar, bright and crisp on the palate, then soapy with a touch of alcohol and perfumed coriander and hibiscus flowers. Passable.

Tmoney99 (12041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured clear orange color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeasty, citrus & spice aroma. Medium body. Medium yeasty sweet flavor with a medium sweet and small alcohol finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

BuckeyeSammy (559) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Great lacing, apricot color. Vanilla, bananas nose. Yeast, vanilla, good but not great, Should be better then a 2.9 average.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Clear yellow orange pour with medium to large white head. Pilsner malt aroma, some lime like citrus, herbal hop notes, some wierd mild stink, some faint vanilla. Spicy, herbal flavors collide with clove and vanilla in an overly sweet mess. Finishes grassy with more clove and vanilla. Alcohol is very pronounced. Overall this is pretty gross.

Arayaga2 (1914) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Mildly sweet semi soapy tripely aroma. Clear gold with very white foam and decent lacing. Prominent pilsener malt taste comes through. Thereís a good deal of substance here, with a slightly grassy hop edge.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Cloudy orange pour with a very thin filmy head. Aroma is sweet, malty and has some yeast, honey and apple. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but there is some upfront warming from the alcohol. Taste is sugary sweet with some yeasty esters towards the back end. Not a whole lot going on here to be honest. I love this brewery so itís all good though.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Wow, I canít believe Iím only the fourth rater of this beer. 12oz bottle from West Lakeview Liquors from the Canis Maximus four pack. Clear, medium amber with small white head. Aroma is very sweet malt with spices and yeast, also oange and alc. Cloyingly sweet caramel malt with spice, big alc, yeast and banana. Medium body and creamy with chalkiness. This is not very good and tad out of style for a tripel.

Update: As the beer warmed up, I literally couldnít finish this beer, one of the few drain poors. -1 overall
