UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Reconsidering this after a year, much better tripel than originally rated. Big and buttery, malt, savory spice, slick and smooth.

Growler courtesy of ditmier. Pours a hazy amber with a nice white head. Smells of dry pilsner malt, spice, some clove, coriander, ginger, perfumy. Tastes dry and crisp with some nice spicy elements, pepper, some citrus on the finish. Very enjoyable. Hopefully someday theyíll bottle this!

Tap @ the Pie - This pours a hazy dare I say murky pour that is golden and has that unfiltered appearance that makes the color shapeshift a bit. Nose, s really fruity and spicy. Creamy carbonation flows over the palate, with a delicious mouthfeel. Really wheaty cereal grain maltiness, with lovely hints of citrus an yeasty notes. Delicious!

AKA Triple Pie at Flying Pie on Fairview: Murky tan pour with a smaller head. Nose of yeast and fruits. Taste is fruity, yeast, some cloves. Very well blended flavors make this smooth and true to style.

On Tap at Flying Pie on Fairview. They call it Triple Pie there. It really isnít my style. Extremely thick looking. Looks like a cardboard milk shake and is about as thick as one too. It has sweet wheatty, hefeweizen-like aromas. The tase is rich and citrusy and sweet. Not for me.

Cloudy brown, excellent Abbey Triple. I canít believe this is an Idaho brew. Sought it out at the Fairview Flying Pie. Best Idaho beer Iíve tried for sure.

Dark golden brown pour with a generous amount of head. Soft look and feel to this beer. Smells of fruit and citrus. Great look and feel! Nice beer!
