Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2008
From growler courtesy of dpjuart. Very nice aroma, alternating between a classic honey-teaberry-yeasty tripel profile to some sweet clear apple juice smell. Light spicy notes with pilsner malt and golden honey sweetness. Mild alcohol notes, too. Fruity and light. Golden yellow-amber clear with light haze, topped by white thin foamy lacing head. Medium to heavy body, silky, with medium carbonation. Starts nice and sweet with lots of sugar and honey, teaberry, mild bitter citrus and a fruity yeast flavor. Notes of apple juice, too. Finish is lightly bittered, with some watery sour apple notes, mild alcohol warming, and a bit of chalky yeast characer. After is dry chalky apple. This is a really nice tripel.

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Crisp apple juice, light cane sugar, and alcohol, nipped with phenols. Pours a transparent bright vibrant gold, with a white rim. Flavor is rich and solid, but fairly plain. There’s little honey or apple character. Nice dry phenols, a touch of bubblegum, and lemon sugar. Balanced with some juicyfruit and light hops. Nicely dry and with really solid phenols. Crisp finish. Alcohol runs a little hot and brash, but smooths into the beer. This is a really solid, but simple trippel. However, a vast improvement from their last Tripel effort.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark golden amber color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was light sweet apple. The flavor was tangy, sour and tart apple with a sugary undertone and a tart apple finish. The mouthfeel was moderately thick. The Tripel aspects get rather overwhelmed by the apple.
