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.

16 oz. bottle, $2 at Ray’s. Pours pale malts, a bit of copper in the center of the glass,and a steady stream of bubbles that just breaks at the surface. Smell is malty sweet, and just a little bit sweaty. Hints of sour fruit in the rear of the nose. Taste is loaded with tripel sweetness. Sweaty impression in the mouth, too. Still, the malt feels light, except for a thread of alcohol. Hints of orange peel and coriander.

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.

chinchill (1879) - 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

bottle. Hazy pale golden with small head. Very sweet with some booze. Some belgian yeastiness, but everything is just overwhelmed by the sweetness. Unbalanced.

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
