COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The infamous 3Tail bat flies out into the night to steal secretive sips from the glasses of unsuspecting patio patrons. We have brewed this rich, golden ale as an offering to this tempestuous beast of the evening in the hopes that his thirst will be sated. The honey-like character of 100% pils malt and the subtle fruit and spice of an ancient Belgian yeast strain bring together flavors all mammals, flying and earth-bound alike, can enjoy. We offer 3Tail as tribute to our brethren in a far away land who have made the ultimate sacrifice – a vow of celibacy – in order to serve as holy protectors of ale. Ingredients: pils malt ; hops for balance; Abbey yeast sourced from the Texas hill country; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; a strong backbone. Hops: US Perle, Tettnang Tettnanger

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Golden pour with a white head. Nose is rather sweet. Some pear and apple esters. Plenty of sugar, light citrus, yeast, and a touch of cotton candy. Really sweet flavor, too. Cotton candy, sugar, pear, and apple. Yeast, some citrus, and a hint of spice.

Big extra from Erll. Thanks, Chris! Nice orange gold. Nice sweet malty nose, with citrus and belgian yeast notes. Taste very much follows. Full bodied, with nice round mouthfeel and palate. Nice surprise, not knowing really anything about this brewery.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Golden and clear with a thin head. Aroma has a good spice and orange kick to the malt base. Body is sweet with more spice. A little fruity. Finish is long with more of that fruit and malt sweetness lingering on the palate.

HighWine (952) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Excellent lacing. Belgian yeast nose. Taste is moderately bubblegum yeast with a touch of honey sweetness balanced out by a quick burst of bitter hops that cleans away the sweetness from the palate. Creamy mouthfeel. Good beer.

dnstone (2139) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Clear golden in color with a ring of white head. Aroma is sweet, winey (white grape) alcohol tones with a bit of a spice note in the end...the belgian yeast is strong. An excellent Belgian tripel.

Are a betting man? .. . Gold, great foam .. quite complex- abv done perfectly .. would love a few bottles to stash away .. . a good brew! ....Well, if someone were taking bets on your father’s bout with death, I’d bet everything I own on death. It’s a good bet. The odds are he’ll probably die..

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2010
On tap at RealTail damnit!! Poured a clear, light yellow body with a nice ivory head that left good lacing. Aromas of yeast, lightly sweet, some floral hops. Flavors of light to medium sweetness, some spiciness, yeasty and medium bitter finish. Lively carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

(Growler) Pours a clear yellow body with a small off-white head. Aroma of florals, Belgian yeast, biscuit, and grain. Flavor of candi sugar, herbs, banana, and subtle pineapple..

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a cloudy deep gold/light amber with off-white head. Aroma of lively citrus, aged fruit, horseblanket. Flavor doesn’t stray far with added notes of must, malt, some sweetness with a very pleasant light bitter at the end....Mouth feel is medium body with light fizzy carbonation. Overall, not a bad brew at all, I enjoyed!

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Growler thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy golden body and a minimal white head. Aroma of grain, caramel, gourd, toffee, candi sugar and light spice. A small hint of corn. Taste is big and boozy, candi sugar, caramel and belgian esters. Vanilla, tortilla (corn again...not sure where from) and light banana esters. Syrupy yet decent attenuation. Good, beer. Heat is there, but well hidden for its capaciousness (not entirely sure that that adjective has been used to describe a beer quality, but it seems apt).
