This is amazing Tripel. Bottle conditioned / pours crystal clear if carefully poured off the yeast. Big Clove / Alcohol nose and similar flavor. Beautiful beer!

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2004 I really do hope that for some freak reason this recipe was changed so drastically due in part to my previous rating, because it would really make my day . Anyways, I picked up a bomber of this at Bottleworks with #079 (bottle number - this is really small-scale) written in pen on the front. This was a completely different beer than when I had it previously on tap. Has a very creamy head that carries over into the mouthfeel. The big yeast and alchohol is backed up with some great malty fruit (apple, banana, etc.) but the most interesting part of this beer is the very uncharacteristic mouthfeel, it's just so creamy and un-tripelish. Great beer. 1/3/03 - This beer must be very new and in it's developmental infancy because this was not a well crafted Tripel. I have said it before and I'll say it again, American microbreweries just can't make these Belgian ales at all like those folk across the ocean do it. This was intensely bubblegummy, fruity, and had the mouthfeel and finish of white wine - a fruity one like Boone's. Not so successful but there's no harm in trying.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Huge amount of sediment in the bottle, but pours cloudy yellow, thin white head. Very nice aroma - mango, walnuts, some smoke, even some chocolate, but the especially the fruity mangoish aroma. Champaigne-like on the tongue. The first flavors are fruity, smoky, banana, and some nuttiness. Some alcohol is apparent, but not overwhelming. Very nice. It has a hand written "#105" on the bottle - batch number?

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2005
No bottle number on it. Pours a hazy straw golden with good head and lacing. Strong aged chedder cheese in the nose. Nice malt sweetness with some spiciness. Nice creamy texture. There is is a lot of sediment in the bottle so the last pour is very thick but tasty. I wish I had more. This is a very nice beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Very impressive bananna yellow color, perfect for the style. Great head retention, looks great in the glass. Citrus flavors all over this one. Excellent mouthfeel, nice touch of dryness. Only problem is the slight alcohol sting in the finish, if that wasn't there this would be an amazing tripel.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2004
UPDATED: APR 24, 2004 Bottle 138 Hazy gold fast fading head. Fruity, sweet, I smell a hint of wine. Can you say apples? And a bit of pineapple, sweet for the most part, sour notes try to dry it out a bit and alcohol can be tasted but it’s a good thing. Nice warm finnish going down. One of the better US efforts at doing the Belgium beer thing LaConners efforts in this direction are getting better every time

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2004
Sweet fruity brown sugar aroma. Rather pleasant in appearance - hazy orange-yellow with shy white head that diminishes to cover. Plenty of black flecks of suspended yeast. Swet, malty and fruity with orange-citrus hop flavour. Smooth and creamy palate. Bottle #52. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Bottle #311. This is a great effort from LaConner. Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice big white head and some floating sediment. The nose is floral and fruity. Apple, banana, and citrus are dominant with hints of spice and yeast in aroma. Light bodied with flavors of yeast, bread, and fruit. Enjoyable.

Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Thanks again to Dr Bill for sharing.
