COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We started with a Trappist Triple yeast culture and carefully blended Belgian pale barley malt with traditional malted wheat and oats to produce a delectable golden ale. This special brew is aged 12 weeks creating a fruity nad refined taste with a huge bouqet, light body, and a very smooth, non-bitter finish. Best served at 55 degrees F.

A boring golden beer with no head. Belgian? I doubt it. Its yeasty and sweet with a caramel malt finish. And this is from a duvel glass. Boo.

Tasted on tap at Sprecher’s Restaurant & Pub. It had a nice aroma with light carbonation. A fine tasting Triple.

Had this on draft at urban burger. Cloudy light orange pour. Very unique. Almost has a bubble gum taste to it. Fruity. Not bad and I don't like this style.

Bottle. Small fizzy head that fizzled out quickly. Aroma has banana, orange, coriander. Medium light sweetness. Ave carbonation. Not bad. Not too well refunded or complex. But not too bad though.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2012
12 oz. Bottle. Overall, a way too alcohol loaded Tripel. Apricot, vinous scent with a tart, grain finish. Light/medium bodied, slight bubbly feel. Small bubbly head over a hazy copper, dark hay color. Apricot fronted taste to custard, to alcohol. Not a completely bad Tripel, just too boozy.

Draft @ Sprecher. Not a bad beer. Pretty much what you expect from a triple. I would happily enjoy it, but wouldn’t seek it out.

Lovely beer, strong, but not overpowering. Gold color with thick white head. Slight sparkling palate. A mild sweetness, but generally well attenuated. A spicy fruity taste.

Pours a cloudy orangish gold from the bottle. Little head. Aroma starts as something promising, but doesn’t quite get there.

16 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 1/28/2011. Pours hazy deep orange amber color with a fairly dense 1 finger off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Decent spotty lacing clings to the glass, with a fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of apple, grape, banana, caramel, candi sugar, clove, pepper, herbal, bread, honey, and spicy yeast esters. Pretty nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity; they were slightly offensive at first but got a lot better as it warmed up. Taste of pear, apple, banana, caramel, candi sugar, honey, herbal, clove, bread, and light spicy yeast. Lingering notes of light fruits, caramel, candi sugar, honey, herbal, clove, and light yeast spiciness on the finish for a bit. Pretty good complexity and balance of flavors; with no cloying sweetness at all surprisingly. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice Tripel with a pretty unique flavor profile. It could use some more carbonation and spiciness to balance out the malty fruitiness; but overall it is still quite enjoyable and easy to drink.

On tap at Sprecher Restaurant in Middleton, pours a clear golden with a thin white head and zero lacing, the aroma has some spices mixed in with a tad bit of fruit, the flavor has some spices on the front end with a sweet finish, really nothing stands out to make this above and beyond what I was hoping for.
