COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly sublime Belgian-style triple offering an electrifying blend of spicy aromatics balanced with a lively malt palate that is so good it’s scary.

Bottle from case and keg in new hampshire. Silky golden pour. Powerful yeasty aroma, bread, malt. Belgian candy, bread, yeasty, peppery, golden malt. Bit of a sting on the back end.

chinchill (1367) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2014
650ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pour is hazy and golden with a good head and very good lacing. Aroma: mildly fruity and lightly spicy with a substantial light grain base. Flavor: moderately fruity with hints of banana and clove, and a less obvious presence of light malts. Feel: lively but appropriate carbonation; medium body. O: fine American version of this Belgian style.

Ron (2344) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2013
I’ve seen this at stores for awhile. Never considered spending the money for this till BOTW had it marked down to $3.98. Sat in my basement for a 1/2 year then. wow, suprisingly lively still. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Smell is malty and sour. Taste is full and sour. Not a hint of alcohol considering the high ABV.(very warming) A decent Belgian ale.

malrubius (1578) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2013
From the disco’d rack at Heinen’s - $3.99. Golden orange with chill haze and ring. (Not my best glass). Spicy herbal hop yeast aroma with some ripe orange underneath. Orange mango sweet fruitiness with drying herbal spicy finish. More importantly, it’s not a gooey mess like most American triples. Nicely attenuated to give medium light body and fine carbonation for decently soft mouthfeel. Actually, surprisingly, really fucking good for an American Triple. Wish it was fresher, but I did get it of the disco’d shelf.

Deep golden color with a white head. Crisp and malty, hints of citrus zest and spice. Full and tart. A nice tripel.

reebtogi (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
650ml bomber bottle pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is banana and cloves with some yeasty notes. Taste is a banana fruit and light malty sweetness with some hints of clove spice and a spicy hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. A decent brew, but not up to par with the better Belgian tripels. Not recommended.

pours a hazy gold. lots of fruity citrus, some Belgian yeast. packs a decent punch with its solid pallet. spine did NOT tingle.

Ed5388 (1718) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a clear yellowish orange color with a medium size white head. Aroma of banana, yeast, and some spice. Taste is banana, fruits, some spices, and ends a little bitter.

Aroma is spicy yeast, citrus and fruit. The flavor is strong citrus, light bananas, malts and a big tart/sour finish.

nealblind (511) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Slightly cloudy orange with significant head. Smells of buttery belgian yeast and honey malt. Tastes of slight lactic tart, bananas, apples. Some spice flavors but definitely sub-electrifying. Still it hides the alcohol very well behind a shimmering veil of yeasty goodness.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Pours a nice golden color with a touch of haze and a finger of compact white foam. The nose has a nice malt aroma with pear, Granny Smith apples, a light cherry character. Floral hops are present as well. The taste starts with a big maltiness and apples, though it is not as sweet as in the nose. Midway though, the spicy yeast phenols add a sharp twist. Candi sugar and big phenols round out the end. Overall it’s an Okay beer. I’m not really geeked about the whole package. It’s a bit too phenolic; the alcohol is not particularly well hidden and the sweetness didn’t meld well with the rest of the flavors.
