COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited release Belgian style Tripel is dry hopped to balance spicy, tropical American hop flavors with a unique Belgian yeast, giving it a bold more complex palate.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma: Strong fruity esters with a little spiciness, sweet, floral honey, dank citrus, almost seems Bretty..., some stinging booze. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full, soft carbonation, a little sloppy. Flav.: Rich fruitiness, sweet light malts, honey, lightly spicy, somewhat boozy, has a hint (or more) of Brett, bready; lightly sweet with low-moderate carbonation, fairly assertive alcohol and a decently spicy/fruity finish.

Not too bad. More dry than many American Belgians, which I like.

Gold, clear, thick lace. Very intense, complex and attractive nose. Full body, high alcohol heat, medium intensity flavor, long palate. Hoppy, malty, phenolic flavors. Quite delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sfontain (818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2014
12 oz bottle, Andersons. Pours pale yellow, little head; no lacing. Aroma peppery, grainy, dry, banana, clove, yeast. Belgian yeast, hints of orange peel. Sticky but not cloyingly sweet. Never ever would have pegged it at 9%, so well done there.

Draft 11/22/14 (Ballydoyle Aurora)-Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of hops, yeast, floral, and pepper. Taste of more hops, spices, and fruit. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

Bottle in Fl- poured in tonic pint as suggested. Floral aroma. First sip was mediocre but definitely grew on me with each sip. Think bourbon stout I had prior had made the adjustment odd. Once I was into the beer, I could relish in its flavors- very light. Not quite what I expect for tripel but delicious none the same

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
12 Oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of overripe fruit, cantaloupe, citrusy yeast and some sulfur / burnt tire. Flavor is sweet with cereal grain, orange, floral hop. Finishes with long herby hop linger. Medium-full body with a thick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a decent triple. On the sweeter side, but ok balance.

Beaver (1342) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet wheaty malts and bubblegum with some fruit.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts, with some fruit and bubblegum and some harsh medicinal alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall, a bit of a mess - overly sweet with harsh alcohol.

TheBear11D (283) - Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014
The Ogden pours a mostly cloudy orange yellow with a nice off-white head that lasts a good while. The aroma is citrus with bread and light caramel. The flavor favors citrus but also contains bread and caramel. Overall this is a very nice beer.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, heavy grapefruit and lemon peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pear, white wine and pepper. Heas is large, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A nice Abbey Tripel with fruity spicy aromas and well balanced flavors.
