COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sawyerís 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. Sawyerís Triple was formulated and brewed by Bill Sherwood.

3fourths (8036) - 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.

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 Iím a little biased against the style, now, and this was a pretty average Tripel.

Another gift from the great guys at Stone - I canít 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 Iím not a fan of triples!

pinkzambia (1478) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Bottle: Clear gold color. Classic Belgian - tons of yeast and way too banana-ee for my palate. Itís probably a good representation of the style, but not my cup of tea. Wait? Ummm.

5000 (6300) - 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.

Pulled out of that magic fridge at the Hampton after the Dark Lord release. I donít know if my palate was fried or what, but I got very little out of this. Pleasant enough fruity aroma. Watery mouthfeel. I really had to search to find the flavors here. Very subtle fruit thing going on. I still canít find the hops. Iím a fan of triples, just not this one :(

On-tap 1/28/08 at Stone. Iím way down for the good cause and all but man, itís overrated, this brew is average at best. Pours golden yellow with a fizzy white head that fades quickly to nothing. Faint smell of sweet bready malts. Tastes bready, malty sweet, banana, apricot, with a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is full, carbonation is active and good at first but it fades ignificantly towards the end of the glass.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle (thanks reakt). Sweetish and alcoholic, with less finesse than its Belgian counterparts. This has some slightly estery citrusy fruit characters, with some noticeable alcohol. I prefer Stones hoppier anglo styles more.
