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.

Tap @ Revolution: Semi-clear golden body with not much of a head by the time it gets to my table; just a somewhat chunky, foamy white ring. Aroma is very well anticipated based on the style, though maybe not as refined as some more "seasoned" examples. Gummy Belgian yeast, slight phenolic alcohol, clove, toasted breadiness, generic ester sweetness, & perhaps a slight medicinal vibe. Taste amps things up even more, producing a super sharp strike of that Belgian yeast right up front. Totally in your face. Yeah, slightly medicinal & phenolic which hurts the score a bit for me, but luckily warmth doesn’t exacerbate that problem, which is usually the case. It actually gets more mellow with time, as the fruity esters get much stronger. Mild banana taffy, baked bread, faint plum. Slightly wheaty finish with a touch of alcohol heat. A decent tripel that could be pretty nice with a little more refinement & finesse.

5oz on tap at the brewpub. Nice citrus, fruity tropical banana type flavors up front in the aroma. Mild spice, and some belgian yeast / light candy sugar type flavors. Mildly hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. A few things of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More drying in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light spicy note of the alcohol in the finish. Decent American tripel. A bit more noticeable heat on the end then I’d like, though. Not as smooth as it could be. Solid, tasty stuff, though.

A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity banana malt with coriander, light sulfur, and alcohol warmth. In mouth, a sweet fruity candy malt with curacao and coriander, alcohol warmth, very smooth. On tap at brewery.

Strong alcohol flavor to start. Then it is a banana flavored middle with a bitter finish. Pours orange in color. Too sweet for me and I am no a fan of Belgium beers. Had at revolution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (2993) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
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

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.

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
