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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Oh my god! This is the nectar from the gods. They only let you have three during one sitting which isn’t to say you can’t have anything else afterwards.

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 shouldn’t 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 I’m 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 (1809) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/08: Pours a hazy bright golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity Belgian malt and yeast with a touch of fruity esters. Body starts fairly full and malty sweet with a good balance of clove and coriander bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty authentic and enjoyable.

hazy gold pour. Small head. Aroma is very nice. Spices, yeast, apples, honey and tropical fruit. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. Yeast, honey, apples, pears, banana, bread...good.

KornDogg (529) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. golden body with thick head... aroma of sweet fruits, flavor is also sweet, lighter taste in alcohol then other triples I’ve had, but still pretty decent

Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a huge white head. Fruits and sugar fill flavor and nose but alcohol kind of killed it for me, even though its not as high as other high abv beers.
