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.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Dark yellow body with no lingering head. Slightest hint of spice and floral hops in the aroma. Tast is pleasantly sweet and thick and melds exquisitely with the alcohol. Many thanks to Kimchee!

3fourths (8875) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Cloudy soft orange with a small thin white head. Sickly sweet fruit and sugar aroma, only slightly stinging initially on the lips. Very sweet throughout the drink, a bit thin, but not too bad. A good mouthfeel, a little salty and punchy, full of melon, lemon, unripe peaches and bread.

MartinT (8821) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Exultant pineapples, pink grapefruit and bananas bathing in meady alcohol...Obeying to the fruity onslaught are the sagacious spices, swirling carefully in the thin and a bit undercarbonated body (for a triple) of still great malt cookies...Run of the mill Belgian stuff (meaning very good)...

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2009
Bomber, purchased at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange-tinted gold. Spicy banana and yeast aroma. Slightly estery, moderately sweet palate with caramelized banana and spices as the dominant flavours. Sweet but drinkable, and faithful to the style. Another well-crafted Stone brew.

"a beer i enjoyed more than most triples i’ve had before, but it still didn’t stand up to Stone’s bigger beers. Light bodied for the style, some spicy yeastiness - not too aggressive. good but not great flavor...barely noticeable hops."

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Big thanks to markwise for bringing this to the weekly tasting. This beer has eluded me going back to its initial release. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is perfumy, lemony then sweetness and various spice notes join the fun. I’m also getting notes of berries and faint cardboard with additional draws. The taste begins with a wave of sugar sweetness then mild lemon tart notes surface to go along with hints of apple, coriander, raisins and a touch of pepper. Very nice.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nice fruity phenolic yeasty base, apricot, light sweetness, and light herbal notes. Solid.
