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.

Faint yeast aroma. Not much there. Pours a bright yellow gold with a thin bright white head that leaves a film of foam on the glass. Medium bodied. Velvety mouthfeel. Wafts of butterscotch and a hint of sweet and spice. A little bit acidic on the finish but overall a nice beer.

Pours a bright golden yellow color. Active carbonation throughout the session. Aromas of hops, fruit, and a little yeast. Has a light fruity citrus taste, with some yeasty notes, and a good hop flavor.

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 (364) - 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 (1673) - 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.
