COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was inspired by the classic Belgian style of ale called a "tripel." Our brewmaster has created a unique brew which offers a complex nose with hints of spice and "juicy fruit" character, backed up by a semi-sweet palate of velvety smooth malt. Best enjoyed chilled with fine cheese and a tart apple.

Sampler @ Chuckís. Easily the best of the bunch. Limited release Belgian with a lot of flavor to it. Considering the four other beers I had just tried, this one was surprisingly crisp. The guy suggested cellaring it which Iím not sure is appropriate for the style. He also mentioned that they had used the recipe once before 10 years ago. I donít know if itís prohibitively expensive, but I donít see why this isnít in at least a seasonal rotation.

Bubblegum and tangerine nose, some hazy lemon zest. Starts off more like a wit. Clear bright gold, active carbonation, creamy white head. This beer seems to cross the line between Tripel and Wit. Juicy citrus body, lemon, lime and peach with a dry spicy finish that strikes me as a great beer for the senses. I agree with the suggested food pairing, this with a creamy brie and a granny smith apple would be amazing.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of banana, wheat, citrus, and yeast. Flavour of banana, various spices, yeast, and light citrus. Quite nice.

22 oz. bottle from Bottleworks. Golden yellow, diaphanous appearance. There is a slight head on this thing. This beer looks pretty good. This beer has a slight sugar aroma, but other than that, this beerís aroma doesnít have much going for it. Iím going to let this one warm before I judge the flavor too harshly. This definitely has a fruity, yeast, boozy, spice, and hop flavor. Wow, that booze cuts right through everything else. The yeast and sugar are nice, certainly. This Tripel is quite boozy. Itís rather thin for a Tripel. Man, Iím in for a long night. This is hot on the throat. I love the artwork, but this stuff isnít what I was expecting.

Sweet bottle artwork. Nose is fruity with spicy belgian yeast, sweet malts, bready, light grassy/fruity hop profile. Pours golden, nice big lasting head and lace. The flavor is sweet throughout, not cloying, but sweet, fruity, bready, notes of banana and spicy yeast, alcohol, light grassy hop flavors and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Body seemingly a little heavier than I would come to expect from style, but not a bad effort at all.

Bottle:   Dirty straw in color, some sediment floats about as I near the end of the bottle, huge rocky white head, nice lacing.   Soft bready nose, slight hay/grassiness.   Very faint honeydew like melon.   Smooth breadiness up front, slightly mealy, pale melon.   Has a mild dose of dull floralness.   Some warming from the alcohol too.   Very smooth on the tongue, not too heavy or sweet.   Some sweet melon and breadiness lingers after the finish.   This is a fairly nice example of an American made Tripel.   Had this along with some Jarlesberg cheese, which seemed to pair well.
