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: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a bright golden-amber color with a trace white head. The aroma was tangy, sweet and sugary with a prominent alcohol note. The flavor was tangy, sugary and had a candied fruit element although a strong alcohol note interfered and the finish was rough. The body was thick and sugary but the alcohol really distracted.

Growler from Beerbill. Poured a hazy light orange color with a white head. Yeasty aroma with light malt underneath. Some spiciness. Malty start to the flavor with big Belgian yeast character. The finish has a mild spice to it. Medium bodied.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On draft at brewpub. Poured hazy copper in color with a frothy white head which left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet Belgian candi sugar, bread, and fruity esters. Taste is very sweet, fruity esters, candi sugars, doughy bread, with a small dose of spices. A bit warming in the finish, but I enjoyed this triple.

Shared by beerbill, thank you. Pours glowing golden and a very rich, thick, foamy head. Looks very nice indeed. Aroma is candi sweet and an earthy-dough yeastiness. Taste is a bit too sweet (like most American Tripels). Flavor ends slightly bitter but otherwise an easy and sweet drinking beer.

Big thanks to beerbill for sharing this - hazy golden pour, with a foamy, lasting lace (the carbonation held up really well in the growler - smells of apricot, pineapple, tangerine, honey, floral character - the flavor has a bitter herb and flower quality that does a great job balancing out the honey sweetness and light grain characteristics - the fruits from the aroma become detectable through the middle - finishes with warming alcohol and lingering bitterness - a well done tripel.

beerbill (3266) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Growler filled at Selinsgrove. Pours a hazy amber gold with a moderate linen white head that faded to a ring by mid-glass. Very pleasant aroma of orange, coriander, and yeast. The flavor is very similar with orange and lemon, coriander, and yeast. Lightly sweet along with some mild bitterness at the finish. Very enjoyable.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
From growler. Aroma lightly spicy (anise star? allspice? still can’t name my spices), light lemon, herbally grass. Flavor brings heavier spices and is peppery, light fruits, some red, but spices dominate. Hot (spice-wise) finish. Decent triple, just a touch too spicy for me.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Growler shared by beerbill. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter spices and Belgian yeast. Flavor of light spiced fruits (apple, pear), light sweetness with a bitter spicy finish. Very light and spicy, so easy to drink, more subdued than most tripels (a good thing, as it’s not super spicy). WOW, I really enjoyed this beer! Nice and spritzy and light on the tongue.

Growler from Kramer17801, thanks. I’ve wanted to try this for some time now. Pours a cloudy hay color with small tight white head. Aroma of yeast, banans, corriander, light lemon, and belgian candy. Smooth and sweet with the flavor just like the aroma. Perfect body. Light dry sweet finish.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 Comlex taste that is not dominated by any aspect. Fruit flavors, bananas, and other spices are all present. Light bodied and low carbonation, but full flavored. Low alcohol presence considering the strength. Goes great with food because of the strong flavor.
