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.

Tap at the 2014 OBF. Pours hazy orange gold with a beige head. Lots of banana ester in the aroma. Med + body. Flavor is rather sweet with fruit esters and a little hop. Decent triple.

On draught at 27th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival. Full golden color. Aroma is toffee, caramel, and honey. Taste is sticky sweet honey, frosted flakes, and plum. Very sweet, but I like that sort of thing.

Ugh. Sprecher managed to screw up my favorite style of beer. Taste is more like a quad than a triple. Too much metallic flavor. Aroma is non-existent. I am sticking to their Amber brew if I ever drink Sprecher again.

chinchill (1700) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours hazy orange-amber with a small head that soon reduces to a few islands and a thin ring. Aroma: fairly good mix of bready malts, toast, Belgian yeast, and soft fruits. Flavor: fruity and bready, with light spicing from the yeast. Feel: slightly astringent; a bit hot with the higher ABV too apparent.

This a slightly tart beer. It has a medium-light body and a somewhat short aftertaste. Flavors are a sweet banana, tangerine, and orange

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2014
bottle. Hazy pale golden with small head. Very sweet with some booze. Some belgian yeastiness, but everything is just overwhelmed by the sweetness. Unbalanced.

1pintatatime (67) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pours medium gold with no head to speak of. Smells of vanilla, cloves, orange peel, and cinnamon. Sweet throughout with flavors of fruitcake, brown sugar, and a hint of pear. Slightly hopped finish, but far from dry. A solid if not outstanding Belgian style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

backdaft (201) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep golden color with a thin white head that dissapates quickly. Aromas of banana, sweet malt and mild earthy hops. Taste is candy sweet with strong malt and and some light spice. Crisp dry finish.

drdisque (510) - Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle poured in a tulip. Extremely sweet candy aroma. Sweet light bubblegum flavor with yeast and wheat flavor. More of a sweet wheat ale than a true triple. Clean slightly yeasty finish. Does hide its ABV very well. Not awful but I probably won’t buy again.
