A tripel, as solid as a castle. A full bodied beer, brewed with Belgian hops, to enjoy quietly, with a powerful, distinctive flavour: flowery, hop bitterness and soft alcohol.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, sugar, hops, yeast, antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - SEP 3, 2004
750 ml. green magnum champagne bottle. Corked and caged. Date bottled is 07/2003 on a waxy feeling cork. Freshness date is of 10/2006. 13 months old when drank. Loud pop forced the cork out with great pressure. So, it’s still very lively. Poured out a somewhat hazy orangish / yellow color, with a decent, but short lived head. The head was an off-white color, and it quickly faded back to a thin island of yeasty foam on top of the beer itself. Aromas are of sweet malts, slight Belgian yeasty funk, and lemon / citrus peel. No hops are present in either aromas or flavors. Alcohol is well off in the background, along with some slight phenols. Tastes are of lemon zest, sweet malts, candi sugar, some spicy corriander, and alcohols. Very warming to both the throat and the stomach. It tastes earthy as well as sweet. Go figure. Medium mouthfeel is rich and thick, but doesn’t coat your tongue. Almost chewy in a way. Warming buzz to it after awhile too. Finishes somewhat dry, but not overly so. A really decent Belgian triple. I can’t believe I haven’t rated it before now. I was missing out on some really good beer here.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
750 ml bottle. Pours orangey golden, slightly hazy with a large white head that diminished mostly and left good lacing. Citrus, sugar cookie aroma, yeasty and spicy. Sweet & flavor with a definite alcohol bite. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Pretty nice ale - but watch out for the kick.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2004
75 cL bottle. Straw color. This is labeled a tripel but doesn’t have that candi sugar flavor that most do. It was a bit dry and citrusy with a sake-like flavor. Nice beer.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Pours a murky straw golden color with some head and good lacing. Spicy/malty nose. Creamy texture fruity and spicy with a sweet finish. Develops more as it warms.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Hazy golden color, bright white head. Fruity aroma, pears, light citrus, some banana, a little spicy as well. Creamy flavor, a little spicy, pears and bananas again. Alcohol is remarkably subdued, also a very soft and creamy mouthfeel considering the abv. I’m diggin it like a shovel.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2004

st23jt26 (17) - Charlesbourg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2004
Couleur jaune paille. Chapeautée par une mousse fine modérée soutenue par un festival de bulles! Nez d’agrumes légèrement citronné. Très sucrée et alcoolisée en bouche avec une texture crèmeuse agréable. Des arômes florales viennent rehausser l’expérience en arrière-bouche. Sous-évaluée...

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours cloudy gold with a nice lasting head. Aroma is of wheat and lemon with alcohol readily apparent. Decent but not special.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Pours a hazed gold. Strong foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and flowery. Light spice and fruit as well. Taste is sweet with alcohol and malt mixed with spice and and floral hint. There is a citrus and banana blend hiding in there too. Not too bad! Palate is is strongly carbonated and a bit tart while finishing sweet with some dryness. Pretty decent beer for not being too complex.
