Inspired by traditional Belgian Tripels such as Westmalle Tripel, this beer delivers classic flavor with extra emphasis on the hops. White fluffy head on top of bright golden hues. Aromas of floral grass with hints of pear. Flavors of apricot are finessed with the spiciness from the hops. The palate is left with a zesty earthiness.

Pours a medium golden color with three fingers of white foam. Soft pear, honeycomb, spicy yeast and bit of spice and grass linger. Solid tripel with a nice balance of yeast, sweetness and bitterness.

On draught at pFriem. Colour...pale hold with barely any head. Nose...quintessential Belgian aromas with some floral notes and boiled sweets. Palate...sweetly spicy and just plain sweet-ish, this tripel certainly falls in the realm where it belongs. There’s plenty of dried orchard fruits with a particular lean towards D’Anjou and Comice pears. There’s a zestiness on the mid palate and a lingering note of boiled sweets on the finish.

Strykzone (5626) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Sampled at the brewery. Very clear golden. White foam with sticky tat work lacing. Rich sweet malts and wheat are tasted first. Soft fruit behind that. Nice subtlety. Sonpleasant after you get past the sweetness.

Tap. Clear gold. Mild, with some hoppiness. Aroma and flavor are a little too simple and not smooth enough. Decent attempt at a great style.

On tap at pFriem, pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Aroma contains notes of floral hops, grass, and pear. Flavour is extremely dry, bringing out notes of spicy hops, grass, a little floral quality, and very dry pears. Extremely dry, hoppy and spicy, without any hint of residual sugar, just how I like my tripels. Excellent stuff.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Clear amber pour with small white head. Fruity aroma with many grassy notes. Full bodied malty flavor with no alcohol notes. Plummy finish

On draught at pfriem- pours a bright clear golden color with thick white head. Nose of cloves, grass, and anise. Taste is also of cloves and hops. More bitter and brighter in color than expected, however did not mind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a bright golden color, fair amount of lacing. Slight funk in nose, aroma subtle overall. Medium body. Very spicy, estery finish. Long finish satisfying.

On draught at Caps & Corks. Deceptively light golden in color, almost like a pils. So much herbal, floral, and sweet bubblegum flavors. Wonderful!
