COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops abound in this triple Belgian ale, brewed with three times the normal amount of pilsner-malt to build on plenty of raw rich material, and an 'over the edge' amount of Hallertau and Aurora hops. Just to make it perfect with a great hoppy nose, a full round complex mouth-feel and a lingering beautiful hoppy aftertaste, in perfect balance with the glow of the 9.5 % alcohol by volume. Refermented in the keg (keg conditioned) to infuse the softness and easy drinkability of the natural carbonation. Brewery Van Steenberge craftsmanship by excellence!

House beer for Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh.

Rated from beer log during 2009 Belgium trip... Gentle hop aroma, not over the top like American IPAs, yellow orange in color... Sweet like a typical Belgian, but not overpowering, like a trippel but more bitter. The way an American ipa would be but better balanced... Candi sugar sweetness definitely makes it unique... A hopped up trippel, very good, nice bitter palate... Highly recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on Draft @ The Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pittsburgh,PA .. . last beer before jetting .. thick lacing .. quite a boozy brew .. . hard honey and a touch of yeast .. . long bothersome finish .. . has such a bite to it, good aftertaste though .. . . note to self: must buy hand held tape recorder, then i will no longer be speaking into the garage door opener..

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Draft at sharp edge creek house. Pours golden with a thin white head with some yeastiness on the nose. Some pear and grape notes on the tongue with a slight hoppiness on the finish. Solid but not the best example of style.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Hopfig-säuerlicher Geruch. Hopfiger vollmundiger Antrunk, angenehm bitter. Der Hopfen bleibt sehr trocken, erst spät bildet sich eine wenig fruchtige Note, etwas nach Apfelsine. IM Abgang ebenfalls sehr hopfig, harmonisch. 12/12/11/11//11

Oh ya, this stuff is good. Nice light golden color with a beautiful white head. Perfect balance of sweet and hops with a nice creamy mouthfeel. This is one of my favorites. Doesn’t do to well in a growler though, I’ve tried about 30 times and it never lasts more than 12 hours. Doesn’t really matter though it’s gone so fast.

Draft, Sharp Edge. Poured a lite golden color. Had a velvety frothy head. Good balance of hop, sweetness, and alchohol. Med bodied.
