Previously known as "Unnamed Triple". A golden hue and malty body thinned a bit by the 8% abv. In the background is a light handed kettle addition of fresh sliced ginger root. Entertaining suggestions: pair with some flavor packed fruits such as thin mango slices and fresh peeled pineapple wedges. Try an unusual food pairing of a Chinese shrimp lo mein dish. The ginger complements the shrimp and noodles while the 8% abv will refresh your palette. 27 IBUs

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Pours a mildly hazy, but mostly clear golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet crystal malt and ginger with some mild Belgian yeastiness. Body starts lightly sweet with some biscuity notes and caramel toffee sugars along with a tough of doughy yeast and crystalized ginger spice before a drier, bitter peppery finish. Also has some light fruity esters throughout. A decently made triple but could use a little more complexity, balance and smoothness.

muzzlehatch (4829) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2008
22 ounce bottle (as "Golden Tripple") from City Market in Burlington, VT (January 2008), consumed at cellar temperature from a Chouffe tulip. Pale, lightly hazy/thick golden in color, with a huge frothy nearly snow-white head that dies slowly leaving wispy lacing....lots of spices in the nose on this one, cardamom and ginger predominating, a bit of orangepeel, some lightly farmy yeast notes -- pretty much on-target if not spectacular......the body is definitely ginger-dominant, too much so in fact, dry and woody and very spicy with a strongly peppery finish; yeast character is evident as well throughout....the body is fairly full, but the harshness of the spices really takes its toll on the palate, and this ends up in this tasters mind an overdone spice bomb, interesting and not badly brewed exactly, but not terribly drinkable either.
