COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notice a unique aromatic nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with only a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. The palate improves with age, so keep some on hand and you can ride Tripel Horse down a new path with each opened bottle.

Nose is Belgian yeast, spice, coriander, lemon. Taste is Belgian yeast, banana ester, spices, on the sweet side, an odd off aftertaste, alcohol at the very end. Thin for a tripel. It's ok, the funky aftertaste and lack of body kill it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a translucent gold with light head and minimal lacing. Aromas of honey, citrus, and Belgian yeast. Very sweet, with hints of caramel, tangerine, and cinnamon. Pretty decent Belgian beer.

jsquire (3345) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Yellow gold color with some haze from the bottle. Big yeasty nose with some spice. Flavors of bitter orange peel, coriander and alcohol. A bit harsh for a tripel, but still tasty.

Bottle. Gold with a quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and spices. Taste adds some caramel, roasted malt and bubblegum. Rich mouthfeel with moderate carb. Booze is well hidden. Not bad.

Pours a cloudy orange amber with a white foamy head. Aroma of clove and banana. Taste is sweet followed by a note of cocoa. Finishes dry and crisp with a lingering cherry and bitterness. The higher A/V cones through a little.

BMMillsy (1149) - Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle to Brooklyn tulip at Brass Rail in Hoboken. My first New Jersey rate! Pours a murky yellowish orange with a small ring of white head. Aroma of banana, clove, yeast, booze, pears. Flavor follows similarly with banana, clove, spiciness, pear, apple, honey, yeast. Very very sweet and boozy for the style, but a mix sipper. Heavyish mouthfeel with low carbonation. An interesting interpretation of a tripel and a bit on the boozy side but not too bad. Worth a try, especially for ticking Jersey.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to Blipp. Pours a clear hazy gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grains and rich sweetness with a hint of dry honey. Flavor is similar with earthy grains that have a good amount of sweetness and a touch of dryness.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Keg at the Blind Tiger, NYC, 25/11/13. Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is dark fruits, sugar, dates, yeast notes, lemon rind, fruit cake mix. Taste comprises cake mix, dark fruits, yeast esters, citric punch, sweet notes. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sweet finale with lightly warming booze. Decent enough tripel, good balance, holds some flavour and not overly sweet or boozey.

For 10% ABV, the bite is well hidden. This is kind of sweet, though, and not in the way I want from a tripel. I’ll drink this six pack but probably won’t buy again. I’d rather leave this style to the monks.
