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.

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.

Strykzone (5206) - 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 (781) - 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.

Nice banana bread aroma. Drinkable, alcohol well hidden, but just a mediocre example of the style
