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.

Larger 16oz, embossed bottle from Belmont. Their beers have been relatively hit or miss for me and this was a positive. Pretty classic tripel across the board with just a hint of the ABV behind light sweetness. Good.

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

Mediocre tripel. Underwhelming amount of spice. Light appearance and highly carbonated.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH --- Cloudy medium amber, thin beige head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that adds light spice in the palate with fruit overtones showing in the finish followed by mild hops. A light Abby Tripel, but easy drinking.

Aroma of alcohol and dour apple. Appearance is no head light copper color beer, rather ugly. Taste is a poor attempt at an abby. Sour notes bitter after take. Over all a very sub par beer.. Stay away.

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

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 wasnít as pleasant to me as it is with other tripels.

Poured with a golden/copper body, lightly hazed and moderately effervesced, under a fast fading yellowhite head. Its bouquet is not "huge" as described, but predominantly pale malt with a hint of sweet taffy, a touch of tart fruity yeast, and growing acetone as it warms. Flavor finds a fruity sweetness on a slightly sticky body. There is a combination of flavor vs. palate that makes this (for lack of a better word)... dull. There is no "punch", there is no allure. I donít crave another, in fact Iím grabbing a glass of water to wash away the remnants of semi-cloying sugars and unripened banana from the roof of my mouth.

RedSox2004 (1421) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Clear gold with a one finger white head and moderate lace. A bit of an overripe apple aroma accompanies the Belgian yeast, banana and clove. A hint of bubble gum as well. Slight tartness in the taste, some malt sweetness and a strong Belgian presence. Nice creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body, medium carbonation and a crisp tartness in the finish.

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