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.

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 (4615) - 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 (3138) - 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.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2005
12 oz bottle: pours a fairly clear, lightly red gold. Minimal head dies into a thin, slightly wispy head. Aromatic honeycomb and floral hops mix with interesting and zesty yeast. Sticky palate, filled with doughy flavour and make the yeast a bit more mellow. Amazing, that it is 10% abv…fresh wildflowers are noticeable in the finish (not that I have tasted any, but this IS my imagination) Anyway this beer is intriguing to me, not because I find it true to the style that I love, but because it has taken the style and morphed it into a deeply flavour treat. Nice job – unique.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pours honey-gold with a large-bubbled, one-finger head and some nice effervescence. Very earthy aroma, with banana, Belgian spices, and a hint of apple. Some citrus and vanilla. Has a little bit of a Biére de Garde feel to it. Sweet flavor, with some hop bite and a peach and honey aftertaste. Very well-balanced; nothing overpowers the palate. Alcohol is well-hidden. A pleasant surprise. Not overly spicy like Golden Monkey. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, but I could drink this often.

JoeCanals (9) - USA - JUL 25, 2005 does not count
Thought that the alcohol content would overpower the beer, but this wasn’t the case. Smooth caramel taste from the beginning. Highly recommended for a stronger ABV beer.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Crystal clear, amber color. Little head, but some lacing. Aromas of caramel, fruit, vanilla and chocolate. A hint of diacytel. Herbal character -- taste of hops is prevalent, but with a tad molasses-type sweetness, peaches, citrus, raisins and banana. Strong licorice, vanilla and cardamon notes. Only a hint of malty smoke. The high ABV seemed to be fairly invisible in the flavor.Good effervescent but chewy mouthfeel. Finishes dry and smooth with a long hop linger.
