COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our triple pale is a bastardization of three regionally distinctive recipes that were stacked in unequal measure in order to make a beefy beer which highlights each recipe’s finer points: Esters from a dominant Flanders yeast are reigned-in by cleaner American and London strains; Kent Golding hops provide mild bitterness, giving English and Belgian specialty malts room to breathe; Oregonian hops offer a fragrant nose; Belgian candy sugar boosts the strength of this mash-up to 8.5% ABV.

kaser (3126) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Very carbonated. Raisin, grape, bread, cherry, biscuit, and earthy. This has a ton going on in it. 12oz bottle pour to tulip glass at home. Makes you burp alot with all of the bubbles, like champagne. Smell is fruity and plum. Confusing beer, not sure i like or don’t like it, just not used to something like this.

I like this. What it is, I'm not sure. Kind of a Barley wine. Aroma like that with fruit and booze. The taste is also barleywine like. Lots of booze on the throat. Excellent winter warmer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lemke10 (826) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2014
This pours a cloudy amber color with a slight head and some floaties. The aroma is malty with hints of sweet figs. The taste is sweet, malty with a bit of warming booze. An interesting take on an American Strong Ale as it’s kind of thin for the style but the sweetness and booze is there.

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2014
12 oz bottle pours a reddish amber with substantial creamy off-white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma has lots of sweet malts, some raisins and even banana. Taste is sweeter than I expected with only slight bitterness and some alcohol warming in the finish. Body is medium + with average carbonation. I didn’t know what to expect from this one, and am still a bit confused about what it tries to be.

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a deep reddish amber with a frothy tan head. Had a sweet caramel malt aroma and taste of malt and alcohol. A bold, flavorful beer.

rlgk (11551) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Bottle from Ware House Liqour, Chicago. Clear deep golden/amber beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, bready, biscuits, hay, cereal notes, toffee, vinous notes. Malty caramel flavor, nuts, hoppy citrus, caramel, roasted notes, some warming alcohol. Decent beer.

r464 (1946) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2014
Strong aroma and flavors, dark fruits, malt, alcohol. Raisin, fig, cherry, a bit of caramel (but not too sweet). A certain heaviness accompanies the malty base and leads to a strong finish. Earthy, woody pine and resin lie beneath.
