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.

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."

Light bright lemony golden color. Maltesers chocolate nose, alcoholic and fruity. Big alcohol kick at the front, quite sweet, hints of banana. Nice aroma, but overall too sweet and somewhat boring for a triple.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 29, 2005
Pours a golden yellow color, small white head. A little bit of sediment floating around. Aroma of apples, pineapples and a little wheat. Flavor is bananas, cloves, coconut and apples. Thanks to BBB63 for this one.

3fourths (9016) - 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.

Hoppy, candy in the nose, light amber, small head. Malty, with a mix of citrus and spice. Fairly light bodied. Very nice treat, Thanks Kimchee!

Pours a golden orange color with a cream head. Smells of yeast and citrus. It is a sweet beer and drinkable, a decent beer.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Thanks to Beerlando for the bottle. Pours a clear yellow with aromas of yeast, grain and banana. Flavors are grainy with some banana. I think I’m a little biased against the style, now, and this was a pretty average Tripel.

Another gift from the great guys at Stone - I can’t thank you enough! Pours a fine though disappearing head on an orange body. Lots of yeast and hay present in the aroma. Fruit and peaches also. Too much triple for me!! Flavor is sweet and fruity and rather syrupy. Strong hay notes. Not really a beer for me, since I’m not a fan of triples!

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Bottle: Clear gold color. Classic Belgian - tons of yeast and way too banana-ee for my palate. It’s probably a good representation of the style, but not my cup of tea. Wait? Ummm.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle:   Vibrant straw, clear but with some sediment, moderate to small sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Dusty nose, a little mealy and cardboard.   Not bad but seems past its prime.   Yeah, cardboard and mealy type malts on the tongue.   Should have drank this one sooner.   Bready, but in that wet cardboard sort of fashion.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes okay, not as bright as I would have imagined it should have been.   Lingering cardboard.   I waited too long to try this one, but decent otherwise.   Thanks Bob for this freebie from one of my first trades.   Been cherishing this one for a while.   Should have drank this sooner.
