COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a strong Belgian style golden ale. It uses simple pale malts and sugar syrup with a special yeast to create a warming, very drinkable brew. The yeast adds a touch of fruitiness and subtle spice. It finishes dry and clean, hiding its potency rather well. Be careful, it sneaks up on you! Available in December and January.

Growler from Martha’s Exchange, NH. Poured a nice golden with a finger’s worth of off-white head. Greeted by bananas, cloves, and a yeasty aroma up front. Smells like there is a little sour hiding in there as well. Taste follows the aroma nicely - a little sour, a lot of yeast, and some nice sweetness at the edge. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly with a quick and dry finish. Overall, this is a really nice tripel. If you happen to be at the Exchange when it is available, pull a glass.

On tap at the source, served in a snifter. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Candied fruit and sugar on the nose with hints of spice and yeast. Sweet flavor, perhaps to sweet. Smooth palate, goes down real easy. Alcohol is well hidden. I though it was pretty good.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Pour from a growler at RBWG. Pours a gold color with a small white head. Notes of bready and sweet malts, sugars, a lot of dried fruits, faint spice, and booze. The nose has a hint of cheese. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. So-so tripel.

[ Growler ][ RBWG Premeet ][ 64oz? ][ Taster ][ Free ][ 2/6/14 ]
>> Clear orange pour, bubbles, no head. Nose is sweet apple, pear, sugar, flash of acetone. Taste is sugar, brown banana bread, headache inducing sweetness. Bleh, I just hate these types of beers now so forgive me.

jtclockwork (8234) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Growler at RBWG. Pours gold with white head. Nose is off - a bit of upchuck, apple and lemon. Taste is good though. light spice, lemon and alcohol soaked fruits. Medium body.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Growler at RBWG 2014. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and grass with a light spice and light fruit note. Flavor has earthy but sweet grains with light fruits and light spice underlying.

b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Growler to snifter (shared by jcwattsrugger at RBWG). Looks good for the style; a cloudy golden orange with white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a bit of clove and banana as well. Average on the palate. Not bad.

Ferris (3887) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft - Smells bad, meaty and some say vomit. Color is hazy golden with a thin head. Taste is much better with banana esters and some spice. big flavors and mouthfeel. Nose gets better after 20 minutes and smells as it should.

pilgrimoutlaw (766) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2013
On tap at Martha’s Exchange. Pours golden blond with foamy white head. Banana, light fruit, coriander, pepper, hay. Low bitterness, moderately sweet. Full, smooth body. One of the better beers I’ve had here.

AirForceHops (3114) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Served in a snifter at the brewpub, 1-19-2013. Nice bright yellow color with an orange hue. Low carbonation with little head. Aromas of banana, clove, wheat and HUGE amounts of yeast. Flavor has large amounts of bread malts with banana esters and clove notes. Some apple notes. Alcohol is present but nothing to overwhelming. Some may say this is cloying. It is on the sweet side but for me it works. I like sweet and fruity Triple’s. Honestly I think the brew master did a fine job with this batch. Well done sir!
