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.

BeerandBlues2 (9597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2012
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.

daknole (9055) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2009
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.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2007
A great tripel. Cloudy orange with a whisp of head. Lacey. Aroma of fruit and yeast.Medium mouthfeel. The taste-did they cut these fruits in? Unfiltered taste, apricot and then peach. A bit on the sweeter side.Aged? Yet the fruit could be a smoothie cut up an hour ago, masterful brewing by the couple. A must try, and as good as a monk in Belgium.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - 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 shouldn’t be there). A little bit of banana-like fruitiness and lingering cooling minty character. Long dry spicy finish.

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2007
Growler. Hefeweizen appearance of murky yellow body and a white head, bright and lively color. Sweet estery lemon and melon nose, spicy and creamy lemon yogurt flavor, with a creamy palate to match. Very good.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Draft at the HBF. I liked this one. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and big banana. Tastes triply, with a finish of citrus, more banana, cloves, and floral esters. Very nice style. Selin’s Grove came through with 2 great beers at the HBF.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2005
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.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
2013-08-17. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a moderate white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is lightly yeasty and alcoholic over sweet pale malt. Whispers of fruit. Flavour of sweet pale malt quickly turns dry, finishes with dry bitter alcohol, mild yeasty undertones. Floral notes as it warms up. 7+ Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. On tap at the brewpub.
