COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, full-bodied Belgian Abbey-style beer. The traditional yeast strain that is used imparts a rich array of spicy and fruit-like flavors. The prominent clove and melon notes are complemented by the sweetness and alcoholic warmth of the beer. The appealing color of glowing orange makes this brew irresistible.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy golden yellow, small quick head, no lacing, suspended yeast particles. Aroma of clove, pepper and tangerine. Taste is sour with a sweet fruity background. Full bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes sour with notes of clove, banana, citrus and yeast. Not bad.

Bottle at Fado. Clear orangish-yellow pour with a lasting sodt off-white head. Grassy caramel aroma. Nice medium-light malt notes. Sweetness feels more from honey than sugar. Not nearly as full or complex as most Trippels but a pleasant easy drinking attempt.

Bottle. Poured a orange gold color with small head. Aroma of clove, spice, orange, belgium yeast. Spicy clove and belgium yeast flavors in taste. Slight fruit notes. Medium heavy body. Maybe too much clove or spice to this. Decent.

Bottle revisited since I didn’t rate this in the past. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, ample fruity character, pear, some citrus, spices, with some alcohol heat. Decent enough.

From BA review on 1-29-12 - Had on tap served in tulip shaped glass Appearance – Pours a haze orange/golden color with a nice white head. The head fades slowly giving away to the very slightest bit of lacing. Smell – Yeasty and sweet are the first detected; yeast cake and sweet fruits of orange and a bit of tropical mango and some banana are present. Then a bit of bready maltiness works its way through the aroma, with the whole aroma rounded out by a light alcohol/boozy aroma. Taste – The taste is very similar to the smell only in a different order. As opposed to the aroma, the first taste detected was a bit more breadiness with some biscuit flavor. The yeasty flavor, present throughout, stays while the bread flavor fades giving way to a sweeter taste profile of mango, orange and banana. Like the smell however the whole taste experience finishes with a nice mild alcohol flavor rounding it all out. Mouthfeel – A nice creamy body with a good level of carbonation. A good slow drinking/sipping beer; perfectly matched to its alcohol content. Overall – While not the best Belgian triple I have ever had, very enjoyable none the less. Nothing stands out, but nothing brings it down; overall moderately balanced.
