COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three distinct Trappist yeasts – one earthy, one fruity, and one spicy – combine to produce the unique personality of this Belgian-style pale ale. Zesty hops, gentle malts, and a few vanilla beans provide a crisp, smooth profile, while the trio of yeast strains ferment the beer into an elegant harmony of flavors. From chaos, comes Trifecta.

Il y a des fruits jaunes derrière cette vanille et ces épices. Drôle de blonde que cette Trifecta qui vient d’être libérée de cette longue canette. En bouche, des éléments sucrés qui se combinent à la vanille brouillent les apparences. Les épices de la levure me ramènent quand même au style. Les fruits sont moins. La bouche est belge, crémeuse, bien aérée. La finale de vanille et de houblons est singulière. Pas difficile à boire mais moins amusante que prévu.

Bottle at home. Pretty great stuff. Belgian notes upfront with a really appealing dry/ crisp finish. Vanilla notes somewhat odd but subtle- can’t decide if they really work or not. Lots of spice/pepper. Appealing funk/ sourdough notes. Super clean. Very enjoyable.

on draft at brewery, another bland tasteless belgian ale which is fine! Very simple and drinkable, ive heard some bad things about previous batches so this is a good thing.

ctipping (713) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter. Orange body. Big white head. Smells a little hoppy with some Belgian yeast. Lots of vanilla. Tastes malty. Sharp Belgian yeast that’s almost overpowering, but vanilla takes over and overwhelms the finish. Medium body. Interesting variation. I think I couldn’t drink a lot of this, but in small doses it’s ok.

Dark, golden color with a pillowy white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, Belgian yeast, pepper. Mainly bitter. Has a long, super dry finish.

AirForceHops (5277) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2015
750 bottle date of 10/8/ 14. Dirty hazy color thin lasting head. Aroma shows me Belgain yeast, very mild vanilla, some light traces of honey. Yeah all the flavor is here and.proper but a tad on the stale side. This feels like it is a bit past its prime. Still pretty good overall.

Draft during EBF weekend. Poured a deep gold body with an average sized foamy white head. Aroma and flavor of Belgian yeast, banana peel, menthol notes, grainy bread crusts. Average mouthfeel with carbonation that is a bit on the strong side. Okay.

On tap at the brewery: Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is Belgian funk, spices, and a little citrus fruit. Taste is more of the same, with the funk really standing out. Light to medium body, not my favorite.
