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.

BMMillsy (1253) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (7895) - 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.

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2013
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.

Tap @Draught 55, NYC
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweet apple, candy-marmalade aroma. Medium-bodied. Tastes like an apple cider. Alcohol, light fruity yeastyness. Doesn’t taste like 10% at all, strange.
