COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of both its independence and its signature Tripel style, this Belgian style ale brewed with Belgian candi surgar and a combination of Ommegang, Duvel and Chouffe yeasts. A tripel, if you will. The unsung hero of brewing, the yeast strand dramatically influences the flavor and aroma profile of a beer. Three yeasts join here together to forge one remarkable brew.

Keg at The Blind Tiger, NYC. Pours cloudy orange with a fine, creamy cap. Lots of bready malts in the nose, with hints of yeast and caramel. Medium to big sweet flavor with heavy, heavy doughy bread, yeast, candi sugar, caramel, a bit of overripe orange. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with some sticky sugars, more doughy bread and caramel, yeast. Quite sweet (it is a tripel, after all) and quite bready, but not as cloying as many of its peers and, overall, pretty drinkable.

The fact that this is called an Abbey Tripel made me expect much, much more from it. If you’ve ever had Blue Moon Belgian White, then you’ve had this.

Draft. A lighter-bodied beer, some yeast spice, fruits and malts. Basic but drinkable.

RABinCO (1163) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a nice white head. Grassy, sugary aroma. Pleasant slightly tart taste with a good dose of sugar without being overly sweet. Finishes nice and crisp.

dogfishho (588) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a golden yellow with a big white head. The aroma is filled with Belgian candi sugar and a touch of earthy hops. On tha palate it's really sweet. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at Blind Tiger on 02/13/2013 with Andy and James (I think). Don’t have much in the way of notes - main impressions were that it was Belgiany yeasty and had some wheat flavor, but I was not a huge fan. Not bad, but kind of boring.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2013 - Pours hazy yellow orange with a white head. The aroma is very bready, raw dough, rich and malty. It has a medium / full rich body with soft carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, but adds spice and banana. The finish is spicy and has a ton of yeastiness. Okay tripel.

Tap @ Black Bottle Fort Collins. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with an off white head. Herbal, kind of chewy woody, somewhat spicy bready yeasty, strange herbal aroma. Slightly candy flavored with a bit of caramel and toffee along with some herbal and grassy notes. Not a huge fan.
