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.

Golden color. Fruity, winey aroma. Pleasant light crisp fruity flavor with a slight bitterness.

I know Sprecher can do better than this so I don't know why something like this beer is out there. Appearance is a fizzy short-lived off-white head with no lace and a clear amber color. Aroma is malt caramel and solvents. Flavor is like aroma but worse and includes Band-Aids, carbonic tang, little bitterness, and the thought that I really don't like this. Body is okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OK for style but not amazing. Booze too prominent. Golden pour with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Some coriander. Bottle.

Bottle, pours a very murky orangey brown. Smells of sweet caramel, apple. Taste is also very sweet and buttery, caramel and apple.

Appearance: Warm gold color with a lot of carbonation bubbles. The abundant carbonation does not support a head at all. A white fizzy head appears and fades with the consistency of soda. The beer is slightly hazy, where shapes can be made through it but it is obviously not clear. Aroma: The beer has pear-like aromas with a slight hint of noble hops. It is pleasing to the nose but faint. I would say it is fairly average. Taste: At first I notice a slight tart presence accompanied by a light bitter and earthy hop flavor. Some apple flavor floating around as well. There is a hint of paper flavor in the aftertaste leading me to think it could be a bit oxidized. There is a hint of wheat in the aftertaste which is more pleasant. Palate: It is fairly lively on the palate given the amount of fizzy carbonation that is present. It finishes fairly dry, yet somehow leaves a sticky sensation around the mouth. O: Overall I was not impressed with the beer. The drinking experience just wasn’t as pleasant to me as it is with other tripels.

A nice triple. Pours a dark golden. Aromas of Belgian candy. Nice sweet candy flavors with a boozy finish. Quite nice.

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.

Golden pour small bubbled white head. Candied sugars wheat a bit bland. Avg palate. Overly sweet... Forgettable.
