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.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Poured a golden mildly effervescent amber with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet and floral, yeasty as well with a touch of hops. Taste is not nearly as bad as I expected. Very dry with some floral essences and very little sweetness. Not very elegant, but surprisngly drinkable. A tripel you don’t feel bad about drinking out of the bottle. Interesting.

VAYankee (334) - Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Gold, orange body with a very small white head. Aroma includes vanilla, hops, and touches of alcohol and honey. Initial taste is not sweet, instead a bit yeasty with some spices present just a tiny hint of vanilla. As claimed in the description nice dry finish with a touch of sweetness.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 16, 2005
bottle-pours golden orange with a small whtie head. sweet, candy sugar, alcoholic, estery, lemon aromas with some hop notes entangled in there as well. sweet flavors wit notes of honey, grassy hops, and a bright yeast character. As big of a beer this is, the alcohol was not that overbearing. Not bad for an american trippel.

beerbill (3565) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Super floral aroma. Pours a clear amber with a thin whitish head. Citrus and honey come through in the flavor. Although this beer is 10% ABV, there was no alcohol burn to speak of. Very enjoyable.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Clear, deep golden body with a sudsy white head. Sharp nose of alcohol, vanilla, melon, honey, and phenols. Medium sweet and spicy, mildly phenolic black pepper flavor with a significant hop presence. Finishes with substantial, drying bitterness. Not particularly exciting, but a decent American tripel.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Not too bad for a tripel. Alcohol is actually hidden pretty well. Aroma is doughy with lotsof yeast and mildy spicy. Flavor is a bit muddled but has some decent light bready malts with some spices, pepper, coriander etc. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth as well.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle. Clear yellow gold pour. Fruity, almost melon, aroma, with spices. More of malt pressence in flavor, with lighter malts, sweeter light fruits, honey, and spices, especially clove and corriander. Maybe a tad thin.

JK (4918) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Vanilla aromas as well as light fruit, coriander, and alcohol. Gold, with no head. Very sweet fruit and lighter malt. HIdes the high abv well. Heavy palate. Not bad at all, but can’t stand up to the higher quality Belgians.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Poured a clear amber color. Malty aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavor matches with the addition of some spices. Alcohol is well hidden.

aracauna (3236) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Pours a clear amber (doesn’t appear to be bottle conditioned) with a minimal head. Very floral aroma. Oregano and honey. Cloves (almost bandaids) and a slight touch of sulfur. Better than most American-made tripels, I’d say.
