COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A warming golden Belgian style ale, traditionally brewed by monks. Our Triple is made with Belgian candi sugar and a special Belgian yeast strain. We carefully age it to round out this beer's complex characteristics.

Tap. Pours hazy golden with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, pear dominant, biscuit malt and spicy hops. Flavor is malt forward with heavy fruity esters, light hops and bitterness, peppery alcohol and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

On draft at the Pub: Translucent and golden with minimal head. Flavor was fruity pineapple and cinnamin and some yeasty spices. A really nicely smooth dessert with the the chocolate stout ice cream.

Bursting with fruit and spices, light bitterness on finish. Heavier wheat notes then your typical Belgian triple, matt, you would like this and damn it for being a triple.

On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice golden color with a large white head and a good dose of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings some pepper, spice, candied sugar, light malt, and some booze. The taste brings forward more of the spice and some light fruits. Nice mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol and spice. Not the best version of the style, but it certainly gets the job done and is a good representation. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-24-2010

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Oh my god! This is the nectar from the gods. They only let you have three during one sitting which isnít to say you canít have anything else afterwards.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Pale straw-golden pour. No head. The nose is a little bit honeyish with a light kiss of mintiness and lean Belgian malt. Softly spicy phenolics (although the suspended yeast lends this a doughy breadiness that definitely shouldnít be there). A little bit of banana-like fruitiness and lingering cooling minty character. Long dry spicy finish.

In short: A basic sugary tripel. Just ok.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body toped by a white ring of foam
In long: Nose of typical basic triple with fruity yeast esters and sweetness. Taste has the usual fruits found in basic example of the style (bananas, pineapples, apples, etc.). But the beer was just too bare-bone, lacked hops and the candi sugar was just too apparent. Strong white sugar sensation. Nothing offensive but below average for the style. The only beer I did not enjoy at Selins Grove. I think Iím gonna on and assume that this beer was just a glitch in The Matrix.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet malts, candy sugar, tropical fruits and spicy Belgian yeast. Flavor of sweet candi sugar, apples, spicy Belgian yeast notes and tropical fruits.

on draft at the brewpub, pours gold with a tall white head. Aroma is peppery hops and citrus notes. Flavor is very smooth, light floral hops and pepper again with candied sugar and grass. Dangerous at 8.5%, no hint of alcohol.

zdk (1807) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
tap @ Selins Grove - hazy yellow pour. arouma is a touch of citrus. taste is a caramel malts, citrus, cinnamon and ester cloves spice. Tingly mouthfeel. Hop bitterness clings to the tongue. Something is off balance on this one.
