Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft - Lemon grass and pepper. Clear yellow gold with a decent white head. Sweet and oily lemon with some nice peppery notes. Sweet and fun, I like it.

ARH (568) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
On tap poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is primarily lemonade with touches of banana, clove, and grass. Itís lightly cloudy / hazy pale gold. The head reduces to a medium thick, creamy / soapy ring with a splotchy white surface. A light amount, but dense, streaks of lace are left along the sides of the glass. The taste is a medium low bitter with a medium high sweet. The texture of this one is thick and chewy with a medium body and lots of fizzy, soft carbonation. The finish is lemon drop candy with some spices. Thereís also secondary notes of banana and vanilla. This one is surprisingly clean and dry for a tripel. The aftertaste is a very light citrus, sweet candy sugar, and a dry spice.

tectactoe (2343) - Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Tap: Super, super hazy, deep yellow body with a foamy white film & semi-chunky collar outlining its edges. Aroma is refreshing lemonade; a lightly sweet, vibrant malt body can be found underneath if you search, but really itís mostly sour lemon flesh & mild lemon-like acidity. Taste is similarly lemon forward, definitely on the shandy side, more so than an actual Belgian-style tripel. Lemonade, sweet pale malt with a chunkier & heavier yeasty & bready underbody. Finishes with Lemonhead candy sweetness & minute tartness that lingers. Like a thicker shandy, you really donít notice the 9% ABV at all. Not much like a tripel, really.

Of the shandys, this is not my favorite. A lemon kick in the mouth. Has a bit of a sour aftertaste

firstsip (507) - Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Royal Oak Beer Fest. First Griffin Claw beer to disappoint me. Fake, almost Pinesol lemon flavor and nose dwarfs any characteristics of Abbey style. Not a good triple, but not a good shandy either.

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Tap sample. Poured clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex lemon citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a refreshing beer.

ICEatALAMO (1000) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draft with raspberry. The pour is a nice hazy yellow/orange. The aroma is all sour. The taste is not as sour as the aroma and somewhat smooth. The raspberry mellow it out nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tap. Pours dark orange with thin white head. Aroma of tons of lemon and Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet lemon rind. Very bitter lemon sort of cleaner like.
