COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong Belgian Tripel brewed for Papago Brewing Company in Scottsdale, AZ by Van Steenberge. Deep gold color, strong but very well balanced.

Pint on tap. Looks like a tripel almost, nice bubbly head, OK adhesion, persistent, translucent beer--wow it’s actually very lightly carbonated, caught me off guard. Taste is slightly sweet, moderately sour, with some earthy/wild notes. I’m disappointed overall, $7 is too expensive for this beer. Palate is pleasant enough, plenty long and approachable. Decent beer, but weak taste and complexity for a Belgian strong ale. Glad I tried it nonetheless, a belgo-american collaboration that didn’t quite pan out.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a sweet vanilla malt fruity esters, light spices, light alcohol. In mouth, sweet fruity malt with coriander, curacao, loads of alcohol, not bad.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Tap at Papago. Pours low haze orange. No foam. Nose is odd pickled orange peel, cinnamon, sweet relish. Salty apple chutney. Strange. Taste is watery, medicinal orange finish. Palate weak, hints of sweet cinnamon relish. Dry mouthfeel.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Draft @ Papago. Clearish golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of earthy Belgian yeast, sugar, spice and fruit. Flavor is sweet sugary malt, zesty spice and light alcohol warming. Medium body with some residual sugar. Good for the style, a bit on the sweet side.

kaser (2712) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
A draft of this poured at Papago Brewing. Orange and clear pour. Floaral and citrus but pungent. Not my style. The Belgium taste is overwhelming.

RobertDale (3473) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at Papago Brewing, but brewed in Belgium. Comes a hazy dark orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, grain, and spice. Taste is oranges, apricots, malt, coriander, yeast, and florals. Somewhat sweet. Very nice.

sonnycheeba (3562) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear gold with thin, fizzy white head; shirt retention and spare lacing. Aroma is oranges, cloves, bread and cookie malts, yeast, Belgian sugar, with grassy and floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt forward with heavy light fruit and citrus esters along with some notes of grassy hops and yeast; crisp dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2012
750ml bottle unintentionally aged the better part of two years. Holds up well. Unfiltered orange-tan, fluffy white head. Sort of boozy aroma for a Tripel. True Belgian mouthfeel and effervescence, but also tastes like they dumped a ton a sugar in it to get it up to 11%. Sort of like an Imperial Belgian Amber more than a Tripel. So boozy, but has a quality feel to which makes it something like the ultimate malt liquor. Certainly not an accomplishment in the world of brewing, but fills in another odd corner in the Belgian beer universe. Probably really nice before the assumed extract/sugar overdose.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
A little hazy orange/yellow colored beer. There was no head. The aroma of a little cognac and fruits. The taste of some cognac, with fruits like apricot, sweet and a little sticky. The aftertaste is sweet and sticky.

Tap @ Papago. Dark tangerine orange appearance with a white head. Very rich, orange citrusy, tangy fruity, Belgian yeasty aroma. Coriander, very rich orange citursy, somewhat spicy, light barnyard flavor. Quite spicy.
