With a flow of over 19 million gallons of water a day, Bellefonte’s Big Spring is the 2nd largest spring in PA. Brewed with a combination of Pilsner, Munich, and Aromatic malts, Big Spring Tripel Ale is fermented with a classic Belgian yeast. Look for bready fermentation characteristics finished with notes of banana and alcohol.

3oz pour at the brewery. Pours golden/amber with a small head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts, light oak, hints of light fruits and alcohol on the finish. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer but a little too malty and boozy for my taste.

From BA review on 2-3-12 - Had on tap at the restaurant Appearance – A haze light golden-orange-yellow color with a very light head, giving way to some nice lacing. Smell – A sweet yeasty blend. I got some strong lighter fruit aromas of tropical banana and a bit of mango mixed with some more mild citrusy and lighter floral aromas. A nice bready backbone aroma throughout the aroma makes the overall smell experience quite pleasant. Taste – A sweetness of tropical fruits first meets the tongue. Banana, mango and some orange are the most prevelent. A smooth malty flavor with a bready-yeasty flavor then begins to take over, leaving a very pleasant aftertaste in the mouth. Surprisingly, there is not a large alcohol flavor in this brew at 9.3% abv. Well done. Mouthfeel – A moderate level of carbonation, but with a body slightly thinner then would have been desired. While not really thick, it is nice, none the less, and very drinkable. Overall – I rather enjoyed this beer. A sweeter Belgian with lots of fruity flavor. A nice spring time sipping beer.

Sampled on tap at Zeno’s. Nice fruity aroma with yeast, bubblegum, and orange blossom honey. Sweet nose with light hops. Beautiful orange amber hazy-cloudy with thin lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and light alcohol warming. Starts sweet with honey, pilsner malt, bubblegum, and yeasty funk. Nice alcohol warming and sweet carbonic finish. Good triple.
