COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian Tripel is a true classic, brewed with strong ale yeast derived from Westmalle Abbey. This yeast lends clean, assertive flavors and fruity aromas to a pleasing malt backbone. Although this is one strong beer, we were able to maintain the high level of refinement which is a true characteristic of the style.

Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Reddish orange pour. Banana aroma. Sour and spicy taste to this. Not a Belgium fan so can't review this fairly. Don't like it. Too syrupy

Shared with northropfrye at the brewpub in Chicago. This is one of my favourite styles, and I really enjoyed Revolution’s take on this.

On tap at Revoluion. A nice fruity bubblegum aroma and flavour. Overall a solid tripel.

draft, Pours are glowing gold with white head. Aroma of honey, clove, fruity esters, Flavors are sweet honey balanced by warming alc, some pepper and clove notes, touch bubblegum and banana too, alc is bit hot and messes up the profile, body is syrupy, it sorta runs the classic American triple line, I like haymarkets a lot more but this is drinkable

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - DEC 8, 2011
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a brassy gold with thin, wispy head that doesn’t do much. Aroma is rich, malty, sugary, a bit boozy/phenolic, a touch of clove-like spice with some earthy/grassy notes. Flavor is a good dose of sugary malty caramel followed by light grain and grassy notes with a dash of red licorice. Hop bitterness gradually becomes quite assertive and provides good balance to the loads of sugary-sweet malt. Thick, slightly sticky palate with earthy bitter hop aftertaste. Not bad.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2011
draft... Dark gold with a bit of copper, a little ugly, light toppe head, good retention at first then just a ring, no lace... Really light nose, sweet yeast with honey, light flowers with a bit of a bitter skunk finish, not impressed but the alcohol is hidden well... Tastes decent but not much of a tripel, again mostly sweet wheat honey, lots of yeast with a metallic grass finish, not a big fan of this

HighWine (946) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2011
5oz sample at the brewery. Chestnut color, bready and Belgian yeast nose with aromas of banana ANC circus peanut candy. Taste is yeast forward but pretty hoppy. Its a little boozy as well. More hops than I expected but it all pulls together well. I would have liked a little more malt body and sweetness but have no complaints. Very good.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Draft at Rev. Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet aroma, light fruit. Little boozy and strong, but a fairly well done tripel.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, golden-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige-tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity with a slightly grainy caramel along with a good amount of sweeter banana. A touch of honey sweetness and a soft yeast that also gives off some tropical fruit and pear esters. Flavor is similar with a bit more yeasty spice sticking out. Sweet and estery up front with some bready caramel and a mix of pear, tropical fruit, and citrus. Yeast comes out more in the middle with a bit of a peppery flavor along with some banana, honey, and candi sugar. A light hop bitterness at the end as this finishes fairly dry with a bit of an alcohol heat, but has a nice malt sweetness and some fruit before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid and well balanced trippel. Slightly sweet with a nice yeasty fruitiness and spicing that keeps this well balanced and dry. Nothing crazy, but very solid.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a dark amber pour, deep glowing color with no haze, a small frothy whitish head sits atop, dies to a tiny ring, laces small. Aromas are sweet fruits, honey, touches of lemon. Gentle spicy yeast, bread, candy sugar, and more touches of pear and apple ester. Initial is medium bodied offering a touch of heat up front, moving into fruit, tropical and citrusy, with pear and apple playing a long. Candy sugars, Bazooka Joe, bread, lemons, and honey. Gentle spice, some earth, and more bread. A touch hot, with a gentle bitterness into the finish. The sweetness and malt still reign in control, with some light spice from the yeast (though it is light). Touches of more fruit, tangerine and mangos. Finish is fairly clean for a bigger sweeter beer, some touches of hops, gentle fruit, and some mellow sugary sweet and honey essence. A style I generally don’t enjoy. This offered some complexity of fruit flavors and was fairly drinkable and not as sweet as many other examples. Not bad considering. Bubblegum comes on stronger as it warms.
