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.

Nice golden color. Has some hints of vanilla and fruity notes characteristic of Belgian typed. Not much of a head. A full bodied flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a creamy white head. Aroma of citrus, and sweet fruit. Taste is sweet citrus, caramel malt, and a slight alcohol burn on the finish.

A light orange pour with white head. A very strong vanilla and honey aroma. A great Belgium style beer with a vanilla and cherry taste that isn’t too overpowering. Has a dry finish

Bottle. Poured a golden honey color. One finger head. Aroma is honey, Belgium yeast, candy, slight coriander, slight orange. Medium light sweetness. A bit of warming alcohol. Average carbonation. A bit of dry finish. Pretty good. I could drink another.

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
On tap pint in Alfie’s, 9th Ave, New York on 18 Jan 2013. First three words on my notes: Bubble-gum, cloudy and sweet. That kind of sums up the brew nicely. Luckily I like sweet brews normally, this one however caught me out somewhat. If this is supposed to be in a Belgian Tripel style they’ve gone wrong completely: as a stand alone brew however it was fine, not really to my liking but there is nothing bad or poor about it. The alcohol is well hidden by the vanilla/bubble-gum flavours and I managed to finish my pint without any undue problem, but I’ll never have another.

Pours a hazy orange with minimal head. Nose of some vanilla and spice. Taste has some sweetness...burnt sugar followed by alcohol burn. Alcohol more prominent than other triples, but not overpowering. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle from EithCubes. Deep, hazy golden pour with a diminishing white head. Nice lace on the glass. Vanilla aroma with candyish pils and some rosy alcohol notes. Faint spicy presence. Flavor has more alcohol that comes through quite sweet and enhances the malt. Vanilla is still there and some light cherry. Body is quite full and the carbonation is light. Sweet finish. Overall pretty good, but the palate drags it down. Could be drier for me.

NikkTwist (1579) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy orange amber. Fizzy head disappeared quickly. Despite the booziness, feels like a watery Trippel with earthy hops. Unusual, but I can not say I really enjoy it. Can see it improving with age. The fuzzy edges need to be refined.

Received in trade from. Greatly enjoyed this beer. Been awhile since I had this style. Nice aroma but I can’t identify - springtime. Apple? Gold honey pour with lots of lacing. Palate is med and soft. Taste is slight fruit and dries at end. Niiiiice
