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.

Poured a cloudy light gold color with faint orange shading like peach juice, with a medium white head that reduces efficiently. Lovely nose of vanilla, pie spices, apples, raisins with a slight medicinal note. The latter might be a subtle showing of the 10 percent ABV, which is otherwise hidden until near the finish. Like its Belgian cousins, this evolves in the glass (as well as in the cellar), and is worth the time spent. Initial carbonation can be assertive, but reduces to a nice tingling. Palate hits banana, candy sugar and green grapes. Medium body with a mildly dry finish, and that alcohol brings a pleasant warmth. This is a sipper, and provides a very credible American homage to its Belgian forebears. I’ve sampled it several times over a year, and it does seem to be improving with age.

chinchill (3121) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2015
12 oz bottle into a Porter Bar . Murky, golden body with a decent head. This is rather spicy tripel with overly coarse carbonation. More bitter than tart and more tat than sweet. Fairly complex flavor includes some yeast and bready malts.

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Golden hazy pour with nice white head which lasted. aroma of banana, clove, golden syrup and vanilla. Very sweet smell.....Extremely sweet taste. Banana Clove, a bit of autumn spice maybe, but too sweet. Palate is deep medium and nice for the style overall this one just was tough to drink for me.

ElCapitan22 (272) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours slightly hazy, but much more clear than I expected. Has next to no lacing but does have some head retention. Smells heavily of banana and tastes the same. A nice beer overall.

SamP01 (629) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours a hazy golden honey yellow with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet fruity spices, some notes of ripe pears. Taste is similar with a sweet spiciness, biscuit malt and yeast and some sweet alcohol as well. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. Finish is on the sweet side, sweet fruity flavors, has some biscuit malt and some alcohol sweetness as well, has a slight note of spiced bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden but you feel it in the end. Overall a good full flavored Tripel. good to go.

Bottle. Hazy orange color with small white foamy head, orange peel aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet and spicy taste with hints of vanilla and nutmeg, medium finish with faint alcohol aftertaste. Nice brew.
