Trappist tradition comes to Manayunk with the first in a series of Belgian inspired ales. This strong, golden colored ale is brewed with pilsner malt and noble hops, but it is our unique Belgian strain of yeast that provides the complex aromas of fruit and spice. With a dry finish and relatively light body, you will find our Belgian Tripel very drinkable for a beer this potent. 10 oz servings only.
L’Chouffe yeast used. Doug’s from Iron Hill’s first beer at Manayunk.

Can. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and fruit. Flavor was lightly sweet with yeast, caramel, bread, and some fruitiness.

Murky, muddy sunflower yellow. Tons and tons of apricot in the nose, sickly sweet. Tangelo, band aids, baby food. Flavor is at once both sweet and bitter -- orange, pear and honey sugars battling intense, massive lingering bitterness. Moderate alcohol warmth. Not at all pleasant.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky orange with a a minimal white head. The aroma is full of hops and malt with some citrus tossed in. The flavor is big on citrus with hops. This is a really good beer and it hides the ABV extremely well.

They call this a triple but it's not overpowering. Very tasty. I enjoyed this beer immensely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a semi-hazy glossy orange color with less than a finger’s worth of white foaminess. Lacing concaves nicely along the sides. The smell starts off with an iced apple to sweet citrus. Light mango, pineapple opens up once it warms. Belgian spices show their presence nicely. The taste is well balanced between the spice and the sweet and also leads into the aftertaste nicely. The finish is semi-sweet but barely there. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seems slightly under, but the spices seem to take care of the slight lack. Belgian sweet stickiness rolls over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Tripel that I would have again.

keanex (1695) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Glass: Tired Hands oversized wine glass.
Appearance: Hazy golden orange body with a dense white head perched on top.
Aroma: Mild fruitiness, getting a dash of strawberry, banana and apricot with a dry phenol presence that’s very mild. Aroma is pleasant and soft.
Taste: Soft fruitiness throughout, hints of banana and vanilla, with a peppery doughy finish that lingers with anise.
Palate: Creamy and full-bodied.
Overall: Solid tripel, good balance between phenols and esters. Could put a few of these back without realizing it.

solidfunk (6771) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
A little bit bitter, a little off tart. Some Belgian floral and some basement muck. Some resin. Not super well balanced. Pours cloudy golden with ok head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Tap at some bar in Philly.

Strykzone (6176) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2014
12 ounce can received in a locals trade with jdb288. A big white fluffy head that leaves a little lacing as it falls. The beer is deep golden and quite hazed. A light aroma of pale malts, yeast, and gentle fruit. That pretty much describes the flavor. Alcohol is not tasted all that much but it definitely brings some warming. This is sweet but not from candi sugar. Nice.

BillWyce (935) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2013
From notes: Can poured into Trappist glass- lightly hazy golden amber with a thin, 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of stone fruit mixed with earthy yeast. Body is a bit fuller than medium, yet a touch watery. Finish is brief, with an astringent dryness. Flavor of stone fruits, maybe apricot and plum, with a dry earthy yeast note underneath that lingers in the back.
