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 and 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 Rayís. 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.

Bottle, in my motherís basement, just now.
Pours a very hazy banana yellow with a medium sized head that fades reasonably quickly and leaves a little head on the glass.

The aroma is sweet fruit (banana, red apple, & apricot) mixed with a bit clove like spiciness and a bunch of wet limestone.

The flavor is alcoholic and spicy with a medium to high level of sweetness, some fruit punch with frozen pineapple juice in it, some banana, and a bit of minerally earthiness.

Itís cloying and itís heavy and itís weird... but honestly this beer was formidable for me. I remember drinking bottles of this over ten years ago and being enormously impressed, this beer pushed me towards styles and price ranges where before I had rarely trod. So in a way Iím quite thankful to this beer, although itís genuinely outside the bounds of what I would normally drink now.

Very good for a triple. Nice Abbey character and smooth. I didn't think I would like this one but was surprised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet, citrus, Pours a medium amber a one-finger head that doesnít last long. Like other Belgians, not bitter. I believe this is a very good domestic trippel. Iíll buy it again.

naivepegasus (359) - USA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours a clear yellow with a relatively thin soapy white film of a head. Sweet nose with a bit of plum to it. Kind of syrupy sweet, with some dark fruits, and less spice then I expected. Not one of the better triples Iíve had, but not bad.

RedSox2004 (1553) - 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.

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

Astrozombie (53) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
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.

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.

frankenkitty (1987) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2015
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.
