DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Draft. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Nose is apple, malt, yeast. Tastes of apple malt mild funk and yeasty notes, but the apples seem to dull the funk and spiciness of the tripel somewhat. Still, an interesting twist on this style.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2009
On tap at Ottos: Pours a transparent deep bronze golden with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of earthy hops and sweet grainy caramel malt with some biscuity doughy Belgian yeastiness. Starts with good fullness and sweet toasty pale malt with some yeasty esters and light fruity character. Finishes drier and slightly warming with light apple tartness and peppery clove notes. A pretty interesting brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - 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.

Tap at the brewpub. Interesting beer was not the flavor i was expecting. Did hide the alcohol pretty well.

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 (3203) - Ithaca, New York, 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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours gold with thin white head. The aroma is light and fruity--banana, apple, pear, even a hint of apricot--and a good dose of yeast. The flavor is banana and yeast. There is a little bit of a dry apple note in there, but not much. Overall the flavor is dominated by the yeast, which is ok, because I like yeasty tripels. The finish is dried fruit and crackers. Decent.
