COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on the abbey style ales of Belgium, this tripel has a spicy nose and a delicate, fruity balance of malt, hops, and yeast on the tongue.

Nephilium (1356) - Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Slightly sweet aroma, hints of fruit, candi sugar, and yeast. Pours a hazy orange, with a dusting of head on top. Very sweet tasting, with a touch of seeds of paradise/pepper in the finish. Touch of alcohol in the throat. Not bad, but not my preference of style.

sample on 4/1/10 at Ale Atlanta. pours a murky blonde with a soft lemon nose with some yeast and more citrus... nice body with a spicy / yeast finish... a nice Tripel.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2010
In the bottle from a shop in Holland MI. Pours a dark gold with a medium white head. Incredible lemon zest aroma with a great spiciness that evokes traditional medicinal notes for the style. The body is thick. Really good hoppiness with the quinine-like taste. This has a big sweetness- candy sugar sweetness. Nothing delicate about this beer. I think of it as a "Big Ugly American Belgian Tripel." Drink up.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2009
12oz bottle. Hazy golden orange, with a minimal bubbly head. Deep sweet aroma, some apricot and honey tones. A respectable beer, with some solid underlying bitterness. If this were to have the effervescent carbonation of a Belgian it would be world class stuff. The toasty malt, bitter hops, and yeasty sugary thickness are really well balanced. More bitterness than your typical Tripel for sure. Quite a nice beer.

My first bottle of this year’s model is super hoppy - - a real surprise. Hop bittering almost like fresh tree bark predominates, set off by enough bright apricot candy spice to keep it out of pale ale territory, and keep it dancing. Will have to side-by-side it with Piraat.

ChainGangGuy (4374) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, light golden body with a small, white head. Smell: Sweetish, honeysuckle nose with a hint of fruit and a clear, nostril-flaring waft of booze fumes. Taste: Sweet, honeyed maltiness with a sip of fruity peach juice and cotton candy extract. Faintest spiciness. Even fainter bitterness. Coarse alcohol all the while. Pinch of dried herbs on the sweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks. Unnecessarily sweet and comes across as needless boozy. The lack of adequate carbonation really allows the unpleasantness to languish on the tongue.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Pours a clear orange with a thin, quickly vanishing head. Aroma of spiced, rum-soaked raisins. Flavor leads with mixed spices, sweet, yeast is pleasantly funky, but carries a sulfury off note. Lemon zest on the finish.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2008
From a 12oz bottle - Pours a clear pale color with small quickly dissipating head. Below average carbonation. Smells sweet with a nice bitter hop presence and yeasty notes. First sip is sweet and smooth with fruity hops and Belgian yeasts. Very nice, very drinkable. Excellent bitter finish.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Pours a cloudy nut brown colour with a large light brown head. Mouthfeel is creamy, well carbonated with plenty of flavors of caramel, hint of oak nuts, cotton candy and cinnamon. Aroma is pelasent too, bright fruit- spice and touch of whisky.
