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.

kramer (4989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2006
On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy deep gold, with a small very fine bubbled head. Very sweet fruity aroma, with lots of fruity esters. Banana, bubblegum, candi sugar, alcohol, and yeast all make themselves known. Very sweet and yeasty flavor, very robust with lots of candi sugar and a warming alcohol finish. Also a little banana and tangerine notes. Full bodied with a mouthfeel that is just short of syrupy. Extremely fine bubbled carbonation cuts thru the body some. Mouthcoating and lingering finish. A pretty nice Triple, very drinkable.

Hazy gold with a nice white head. Aroma is fruity, banana, spice, light clove, and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is yeasty, sweet, light bready malts, spice and some alcohol. Nice finish.

Pours a hazy blonde color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Flavor of yeast, banana and citrus. The body has a light to medium thickness with a powdery texture.

The Lure:
Banana and pear esters fly above the mild alcohol protrusions. Wheat malt is suggested, or at least some other cereal than the typical barley. Smells like a pumped up weizen.

The Festivities:
Important sweetness envelops the pear fruitiness. Yeast tingles with its creamy and sometimes chalky girth. Thick cereals blend efficiently with all surrounding flavors, but in the end it feels like a cross between a tripel and a weizen.

Transcendence:
Versatility is overrated when one specific task is required.

On tap at the brewery. Golden pour with little head. Aroma of malts and spice. Medium palate with flavor of orange, spice, and yeast. Cove finish. A very nice Begian Tripel from an amazing brewery. Definately worth a stop.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Light white ring covers the very cloudy pour. High-pitched malts remind of wheat crackers and almost feels smoky in mouth. Candyish french toast sweetness, counterbalanced by a fair amount of tartish grassy hops, lemon and tannic white grapes, fresh the whole bunch of them. Light-medium bodied, biting and cleansing carbonation. Interesting take on the style, there’s one beer who must go well with a lot of meals, the pale malts have that rare feature of being almost dessert worthy in that one without the syrupiness, not unlike a crème brûlée. It kept me more very interested than it struck me with pleasure though. Thanks Kramer!

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, citrus, spices, orange peel, banana, and yeast as well. Taste of citrus fruits, chardonnay grapes, yeast, some pepper, and a touch of alcohol in the finish. Big thanks to kramer17801 for bringing this growler to the post-KSQB tasting.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 I had a growler of this as I was passing through Selinsgrove. This is a good triple. It poured a straw color with two fingers of head. It had a smell of bananas and spice. This beer had a surprisingly bitter taste mixed with bananas and clove. The alcohol content was hidden really well.
