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.

Beautiful golden color and vivacious scent. Slight sweetness characteristic of Tripel style, but not overpowering. Pronounced Eastern aftertaste - ginger, nutmeg, jasmine, but these are most apparent when the beer is fresh from a tap. Delicious.

jbruner (2318) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with minimal lacy off-white head. Aroma is loads of caramel and honey. Taste follows with a hint of yeast and booze. Definitely not a good Belgian, but not a bad beer.

mverity (265) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Aroma is of honey, white grape and dull yeast must. Hazy orange amber in color with almost no head. The carbonation has left this brew entirely. Taste is also honey, light malt and a floral sweetness (likely from the hops, but taste is more like magnolia flower). Enjoyable.

Old quick review from 2009 - Taste is full of candied sugar, fruit, and honey. A real treat.

A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a tall white head. S: Reeks of sugar. Cloying as any beer I’ve smelled with over ripe bananas and spices being the only break from the sugar (not that they really help much). Bubblegum and cotton candy only add to the problem. T: This is so sweet, it’s almost got a grainy texture to it. Sugar, sugar, and more sugar with cotton candy, bubblegum, and overly ripe fruits such as bananas and apples. A strong spice character of clove that is also unpleasant. M: Syrupy with medium carbonation. O: Unenjoyable on all fronts. I know it’s sort of a dick move to bash this beer considering its purpose, but it’s just not good.

22oz bomber - thirdeye11 shared. Pours a golden yellow - aromas of banana and Belgian yeast. A love a good triple, and this did not disappoint. Very drinkable, why can’t more of Stone’s brews be available in my area!?

Hazy amber beer. Soft palate with some syrupyness towards the finish. Creamy malt with undertones of banana and gentle spices. A restrained and well behaved tripel that goes down easily.

thirdeye11 (5549) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to Ericandersnavy) cloudy golden-orange pour with little head. Nose of apple juice, Belgian yeast, caramel, and honey. Taste of bread, honey, caramel, light Belgian yeast spiciness. Loving the palate linger, soft carbonation that contributes well to the flavor profile.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color with a white head. Attractive aroma of clove, ginger, subdued apricot, and mango. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with light warming alcohol, clove, mango, pale malt, and white pepper. There were also occasional hints of coconut and gin. Good stuff.

22oz bottle at stone bistro a couple months back. let me start off by saying that no matter what my rating says a beer brewed for charity that supports childhood illness gets a perfect 5. no argument. but i will rate it as well because it’s a damn tasty beer. pours a bright gold with a big, rocky, bright white head and tight lacing. aroma is great with huge spice notes of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg with fruity lemon zest, banana esters, and doughy yeast. flavor is delicious as well, uniquely spicy, with sweet, biscuity yeast, clove, cinnamon, and light cedar with light citrus fruits and wet grass and floral hops on the back end. palate is medium bodied, effervescent, and nicely bitter. overall, a damn good beer for an even better cause.
