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 courtesy of my sister. Clear golden hue capped by a small foamy head with almost no retention. Light citrus, grass, and dull earthiness in the nose. Taste is big cracker sweetness, clove, and flowers. Big full body, light carbonation to assist. A good solid beer. Rated via BeerBuddy

Just the way a triple should taste. Good representation of Belgium flavors and not too thick. Tap

Bulk_Carrier (2679) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2015
This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a slim fingerís worth of white foaminess that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. No lacing. The smell had a sweet to lightly spiced "iced apples" with a slight crisp citrus coming in underneath. Light spice of coriander opens up and rounds out the aroma. The taste was mainly balanced between the sweet and the spice leaving a sweet fruity aftertaste leading into a wet sticky sweet fruity finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Alcohol seems to be well hidden adding a light carbonation gracing to allow a nice smooth sweet stickiness rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Tripel. But I do wonder if Stoudtís spelled that on purpose on the bottle, funny to me - donít care enough either. Still, I would drink again.

Pours a golden/copper colour with lots of bubbles and a small head. Light citrus and bready aromas. Spicy flavours, maybe nutmeg, with a lasting finish and a nice aftertaste.

Jabah (198) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This, like every Stoudts that I tried, is a primo A-B+ rated beer. The aroma and flavor is yeasty, which Iím not the biggerst fan of. Otherwise I would have rated this a bit higher. Pours a faded orange/copper color with light carbonation and medium head. In addition to the yeast, the smell is fruit and a bit like perfume (maybe thats the cloves and/or spices?) Tastes slightly hoppy, a little bit on the sweeter side, traces of yeast, spices, malts. Has a nice kick and meant for sipping.

rondphoto (2786) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Hazy medium amber, off-white head cover, strips of lace. Light aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is toffee malt that adds mild hops on the swallow, then moves back to malt with added citrus and clove. A decent brew, not great.

joejames (348) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
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.

NikkTwist (1971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
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.
