COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sawyer’s Triple is based upon the traditional "Golden Triple" style of strong ale, hailing from Belgium, and weighs in at 7.6% alc/vol. The brew is deep golden in color with a distinctive spicy, sweet and hoppy nose. Effervescent carbonation leads to a modestly dry malt character with hoppy flavors and alcohol overtones. Sawyer’s Triple was formulated and brewed by Bill Sherwood.

Interesting aroma that smells like garbage at first and then goes into a citrus and coriander feel. Tastes really bitter and dry up front almost wine like yet goes into a kind of dry cider feel. Pretty damn good.

Sparkling clear, beautiful golden ale. Small, fizzy, white head. The nose is malty, fruity,spicy and lemony with a small note of bubblegum. Also a marriage of apricot, pear and clove. The flavor is sweet up front with a burst of the same marriage of apricot, pear and clove. Banana and apple. Well-bittered to mostly balance things out. Full-bodied with a fizzy and astringent mouthfeel. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish. A winner! A good cause too!

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 Translusent, golden color. Aroma is sweet, bready and yeasty. Flavor is slightly sweet with some pepperish flavors mixed in. Finish a nice balance of candi sugar and hops. Thanks go out to Jcalabres for picking me up a bottle and to Stone to do a good job with a style they haven’t tackled in the past.

Honey, spice nose. Clear golden apricot color. Bright golden sweet fruit flavors. Really clean and clear. Not much that is really going on, but easily drinkable. Short finish but good sweet fruit. Good lacing and dry finish.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2003
This had a really nice mouth-watering sweet/spicey aroma. Glowing hazy gold, good head and lacing. Palate was smooth, not real thick. Taste went from sweet to dry with fruit(apricot) and spices. The one thing that I really liked was that the alcohol was not very noticeable. Thanks.

Nice fruity aroma. Very smooth slightly sweet body. A very good tripel. Now we just have to wonder if they will come out with a hop monster tripel next year.

Bright brass with nice lasting head. Nose was yeasty, some hints of honey, citrus, biscuit and alcohol. Soft and fruity taste with noticeable hops and alcohol. Apricots, spice and alcohol lurking beneath every sip. Oily as it warms, very dry and hoppy and alcoholic at the finish. Awesome tribute.

I think this is an all-around good beer, as definitely has Stone's character, but it isn't one of their best. Fruity notes in the nose and tongue, but the flavor and aroma just needed a little extra "oomph."

before i rate this beer i would like to say how saddened i am to hear of Sawyer's passing. I think what Stone did is great and it shows just how awsome the beer community is. pours golden with a white head that doesn't last. aroma is of apples, peaches, and other fruits. flavor is a little tart and yeasty with warming alcohol notes and a dry woody finish. not really very hoppy flavor more sweet and smooth. this is the first tripel i've ever had so i have no basis for comparison, but i really enjoyed this. much thanks to snoot for hooking me up with this.

Flowery, perfumed aroma w/touch of cedar. Embellished apple juice color. White wine, baked apples with maple syrup flavors. Nothing really stands out about this for me...reminds me of the New Belgium Trippel only more yeasty and not quite as good.
