Keg @ Queen City. The pourís medium amber with a small head. The aromaís of Belgian yeast. Countryside. Pears. Quite sweet, concentrated syrup flavors. Ragged yeastiness. Caramel. Slightly hot finish. Full body, oily. Not great.

A light brown sugarish aroma. A deep amber pour with tight white head and lace. A bit of abv, brown sugar and a bit of sour. A bit thin and watery. A beer that I could drink but something was wrong on this recipe. I donít know what but my dad once said "If this is a tripel my ass is a jack hammer" maybe that isnít exactly what he said:)

12oz bottle-pours a dissipating light brown head and dark red color. Aroma is spice, yeast, medium malt-caramel, medium fruit. Taste is wood/spice/sharpness, medium malt, fruit, acidic. Rated aroma as it came across as an attempt at a Dubbel, taste??? Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
This is not starting out well. 12 ounce bottle from the brewery. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was a paint thinner smell. Also some banana and clove notes. The pour was copper colored with a thin head, low head retention and poor lacing. Taste is nutty with apple and banana notes. Alcohol is fairly noticeable.

Rarely will I give a beer a higher aroma rating than flavor, but this is one of those rare instances. Pours a deep but clear amber, little head. Flavor profile is interesting... unfortunately the alcohol is fairly evident. Doesnít seem nearly as focused or integrated as the really good abbey triples, but possibly a bit more drinkable.

probably one of their best beers you can brew, always a hit with more knowledgable beer drinkers, itís done well when Iíve seen it at parties in the small kegs you can buy. Its not very intense, pretty drinkable for an average person for a style that is normally not that easy to handle

Growler, Sept 2006. I will echo what others have said; its not really a tripple in my mind. However, I still found it enjoyable. A golden-amber color, darker than I suspected. Smell was strongly sweet, which was good IMO. Strongest flavors was of bubblegum, sugar, alcohol and a generally sweet. Not a standout for the genre, but still enjoyable

Again, thanks to Kinz for abandoning this at maniacís. A color thatís good for the style, golden brown in color. Aromaís a bit off from what I expect, too sweet with far too much in the way of caramel, it drowns out all the other complexity (if there is any). Taste is really off, this is not a belgian. Full of cotten candy and caramel. Way too sweet of an ending.

Thanks to Kinz for kindly donating this after the last Richmond Gathering. Slightly hazy amber color with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Flavor of sweet caramel with some hints of banana.

Medium orange amber, little head. OK, itís time to throw all style considerations out the window, this isnít hitting it as an abbey tripel. Aroma wasnít to style either, but was pleasant, a mix of caramel, bubblegum, and banana. Almost like a hefe getting run over by an english strong ale. Flavor was caramel, juicy orange peel, banana, bubble gum, and apricot. Also some cotton candy on the finish, balanced a bit by a dash of pepper. Although this doesnít fit any style Iíve ever run across before, it is sort of vaguely Belgian with some hefe esters floating about. Really not all that bad a beer. Probably a bit better than this score indicates. Thanks walter!
