COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the rabble-rouser and mischief-maker in all of us, Tripel Dog Dare is a bratty little instigator. Can you handle it? Come on, take a sip. We dare you, you chicken. It takes a special kind of person to appreciate the bold complexity of a Belgian-styleTripel. Is that a challenge youíre willing to walk away from? Of course not, you brave adventurer. After all, unlike sticking your tongue to a frozen flagpole, engaging in a violent game of red rover, or chucking snowballs in a frosty battle royal, sipping Tripel Dog Dare offers a much more satisfying reward.

growler into Le Wobbly Watou - Nose is best described as a La Fin du Monde. Grassy, fruity, spicy, Belgian candy, and citrus peel. Sweet, with a bitter finish. A great value.

on tap @ Drakeís / Florence KY --- Hazy medium orange amber, with a rim head and light streaks of lace. Semi-sweet toffee malt, a bit of wood, a bit of warmth, then a bit of bittering that yields to the malt again in the finish. A nice Belgian style ale, satisfying, full-bodied. Recommended.

Burnt orange color with medium off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is malty and yeasty. Flavor has light fruits, nice spice and yeastiness, with a strong amber malt. Oily mouthfeel, thick, with a slight alcohol tingle.

Had a glass on tap at Alexandriaís in Findlay. Meh, Iím not a big fan of the style, but this was ok. Too boozy and sweet for me.

keanex (1789) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Hazy ruddy amber body with a firm and creamy light tan head.
Aroma: The aroma is sweet with bubblegum and banana being the most prominent. Hints of clove linger in the back with a touch of vanilla. I like the ester profile here, very fruit, but strong.
Taste: Sweet flavor with bubblegum and banana coming through strongest with a mild clove finish. Lingering on the finish is a light prick on the tongue and a dash of floral bitterness.
Palate: Full-bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall: This isnít a real stand-out tripel, but itís darn good. Iíve drank a bunch of this over the past two days, a sample here and there, and each time I enjoy it. This is much worth a try if you like the style.

Draft. Nice spiciness, clean but yeast, light esters, good malt honeyness, one of the better ones made in the us.

On tap at Ashley's. Aroma is not that great, pretty stale. Taste is good though, mild but robust. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
