COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is handcrafted in the Monastic tradition and bottle fermented for a slightly dry finish. The incredibly complex layers of fruit and spice tones wil sing on your palate. Those born with a saintly patience might lay this beer down for a year or more, the rest of us will enjoy the bold smoothness of this Triple today.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a very small fizzy off-white head that completely vanished immediately. Aroma is syrupy sweet with lots of pear and apple notes. Some oxidation as well. The flavor has definately taken on an aged character to it. Quite malty, but not a whole lot of fruitiness or yeast, just an almost Barlewine like sherry oxidation character. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and somewhat syrupy with soft active carbonation that keeps it from being too cloying. Maybe over the hill from what it was when fresh, but still an interesting beer to taste.

Thanks Cquiroga! Pours a slightly hazy golden color with no head or lacing worth noting. Aroma is grassy and full of cloves with a slight spice hint. Flavor is grassy and full of cloves as well with lingering spice hints. Very smooth and easy on the palate. I’m not a fan of tripels, but find this to be a more tolerable one.

Well, I almost decided not to rate it, but then I came and saw I wasn’t the only one to have a problem with this. Sits dead in the glass, a burnt copper color, with no effevescence and no head. I can feel just a hint of carbonation on the palate. The screw cap came off real easily, without a pop - the bottle showed only a hint a sediment - also this stuff was very very clear. Thus, I’m not attributing this to bad storage and handling, but to poor bottle conditioning technique...there was just no yeast in this! Lightly fruity aroma (fruit cocktail, dates), soy sauce. Flavor very sweet, with soy sauce and spiced rum and a light fruitiness. Feels heavy and flat on the palate, lifeless. There seems to be alot of alcohol in the finish, like I’m drinking rum or whiskey.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2005
Strong peach and grainy aroma with plenty of alcohol and some notes of peat and soy. Cloudy orange-tan coloured body with a thin, white, fully diminishing head. Some spiciness in the very boozy, peach flavour with leafy and grainy notes and again a bothersome note of soy or beans. Very dry and over attenuated medium body with pointy, sharp agressive carbonation. Bottle sampled at DenverLogan’s pre-GABF 2005 party.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Clear copper color out of the bottle, with a minimal whispy off-white head. Very sweet nose of sugar and apple juice. Lots of fruit in here with apple, pear, apricot, some peach and banana toward the end. Hints of spice, leather, and an almost oaky woodiness. Syrupy thick on the tongue, but the carbonation makes it work. Nice enough, but there are much better triples.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2005
While this had plenty of the expected tripel characteristics, I kept thinking to myself "apples" and more specifically - the core. I actually wrote down "core" twice in my notes. Anyway, it had a nice palate - smooth with tiny soft bubbles. It was enjoyable, too bad I had to share it! (no, really, thanks to Eric for sharing this with me!)

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Pours oily golden amber with a ring of bubbles. Aroma has lots of candi sugar, faint alcohol, and some apple/pear. Flavor much the same, all candi sugar up front. As it warms, apple/pear flavors start to come through. Decent tripel, just doesn’t score the greatest.

2.9
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Pours a med. amber with an immediately dissipating fizzy head. Aroma is of apples and corriander with hints of colve, but overly sweet. Body is med-heavy which is accentuated by very low CO2 for the style. Flavors are of apples and honey with very little in the way of belgian yeastiness or intricacies. Finishes very sweet. Extremely underattenuated.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Unique aroma (spiced nuts??), lovely orangy/brown/copper color. Weak, almost non-existant head. Fruity flavor is overtaken by stong alcoholic slap. Burns going down, ruining the flavor. It’s too strong to enjoy the taste. I like alcohol, but too much of a good thing...yadda yadda yadda. Expensive.

Finally rating this,found all these notes.Aroma was pleasantly spicey and not much else but I enjoyed a little more ripe fruits when I tasted it.
