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.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours a nice golden color with a decent white head. Malty aroma with a hint of citrus and fruit. Some spice jumps out in the flavor with a hint of alcohol. Decent hit of hops too. Very nice brew.

22oz bottle shared at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. Pours golden in color with white head. Aroma malty, hops and spicy. Taste spicy, lemon and sweet with bitter finish.

Light golden color with small head. Fruity, spicy, hop aroma. Taste of vanilla, wheat, and spices. Good carbonation. Overall I liked this better since the first time I tried it. This was very similar to the RedHook Trippel except this one was thicker body.

Bottle from Stone purchased in late January 2009 - consumed mid August 2009. Really enjoyed this for the style. Nose was sweeter grass, nice floury yeast and very slightly powdery apple. Flavor is more of the same plus very light vanilla, delicate spice and a nice even carbonation. Reminded me of Chimay White white is a flabbergasting compliment for Stone.

22 oz bottle: Thanks to mreusch for this one! Thank you to Stone for brewing this, for many reasons! Clear light amber w/ a short lived white head. Peppery yeast, herbal hop, continental malt aromas. Juicy fruit gum yeast. Toasty malt as well, but mostly yeast and fermentation characteristics. Flavor is sweet up front, spicy yeast (peppery) and fruity mid palate, and drier in the fruity and peppery finish. Very well hidden alcohol, dry m/f, lighter medium body. Wow! This is a really nice beer! Aside from style, this is a good, if not quite "stylistically accurate" (but who cares) beer! I wish I had more!

Excellent and weird aroma of wood and cloves. Unlike any aroma I have smelled. Nice smooth tripel. Not exceedingly alcoholy. Mild with a small amount of hops.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
Bottle 65 cl. Pours an almost clear deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Medium body, a little low in carbonation, fruit - banana in particular - and other exotic fruits. A little phenols in the finish. 100709

Purchased from brewery gift shop. Pours radiant light amber to honey golden with white head that retains well. Nose is the best feature with delightful floral, esters, angel foodcake and birthday cake icing. Palate brings forth the candy sugar with a good amount of banana and alcohol warmth towards the end. Rather assertive, as I expected it to be, but not one of the best Tripels I’ve had.

22 oz. bottle shared by LooseCannon at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. This sounds like a lazy review and in some ways it is. But it’s a tripel. As long as it’s a good tripel I don’t have much exciting to say about it. This is a good, solid tripel. Nothing more, nothing less. I liked it.

Strong aroma of citrus when poured. Had a taste of fruit at the front, then a slight bitter finish.
