COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale but powerful, our Belgian style Tripel has been fermented with the same strain of yeast still used in two of the world’s remaining Trappist monasteries. A distinctive fruitiness and crisp clove flavor are the keynotes of this beer. Brewed with Belgian pale malt, Belgian candi sugar and finished with Noble hops.

not properly served in pint glass. thin appearance with mild white head. mild flavor of yeasty esters and clove, dry finish. very watery mouthfeel. one of the worst tripels I have had, no substance and no flavor

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2004
served in a pint glass. golden and clear. decent dotty lace. smells of yellow grains and candy sugar, bubble gum, apple sauce and clove, some alcohol. not a hugely robust "trippel", some clean fruitiness could almost be construed as soapy, a yeast element is noted. bright carbonation, with watery feel, moderate sweetness with solid cookie malts, and a tad of lemon bitters will emerge with authority if given time. good entertaining beverage.
