COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012

CaptainCougar (7129) - 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.

rosenbergh (6087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
650 ml bottle. From Brooklyn, NY. Courtesy of Brandman.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with dense white creamy head. Belgian yeast, wheat and rubber in aroma. Flavour is very much wheat beer like. Belgian yeast, mild bitterness, rubber, I guess this needs those mentioned fruits and shrimps. I couldn’t find the ginger. Mild spices in aftertaste.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Ginger root all over this with a sweeter citrus and coriander character. Clover with a sweeter finish and a mild etoh warming. A step up from there usual.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma was totally dominated by ginger which is not an ingredient often found in tripel but it was still enjoyable. Taste was also dominated by loads of ginger with some coriander and a sweet Belgian style malt profile. Full body with great carbonation and no alcohol was detectable. Definitely not close too the style but nonetheless very enjoyable.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a light orange glow and a nice, relatively fast-dying tan head. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, coriander seed, curacao, full oranges, tons of wheat and a lot of nice sugars. Full-bodied; Strong yeast and wheat flavour at first with a lot of orange, curacao, coriander seed and a bit of a banana and bready type flavour. Aftertaste shows a bit of the yeast, some sugars and a hint of bubble gum - very nice. Overall, relatively potent and a nice beer for the style - good flavour and a nice subtle difference than most other trips. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 09-September-2012 for US$5.55 sampled at home in Washington on 30-October-2012.
