Abbey triple? Surely you jest...doesn't fit any style really, just a nice assertive strong ale, with medium caramel and fairly agressive hop profile in a pacific northwest kinda way. I like this beer a lot, but don't go thinkin' it's a Belgian style triple...

Golden red with a light, fluffy head and spot lacing. Fruity nose with yeast, coriander and oranges. Some caramel in there as well. Bitter flavor with orange citrus, yeast and coriander. Goes down smooth with a hot bite at the end.

This beer is great! Mahogany in color, malty aroma, mild hop flavor, but just enough bitterness to let you know that you are drinking a beer made by someone who knows what a beer ought to be!

super foggy with a nice white head, citrus/metallic nose, really hoppy and decently bitter, not at all yeasty and what I typically attribute to the triple stylee, floral esters and magic are in the mix

On ratebeer its called a triple, in th OBF program is called a craft malt liquor. when I made a malt liquor last year i called it an american trippel cause that sounds classier.. This brew may be more a barley wine, though ighter in body & sweetness than usual for that category. I’m a long time TG fan so had high hops for this one & wasn’t disappointed. Amber wit a modest off white head..Aromas of resin, caramel, & fruit wood smoke. Malts strong ont he flavor front, with peach and smoke mixed with caramel (also hiding the alcohol,) but enough muster from resin hops with a little grapefruit edge to keep a balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange gold color. A full-bodied triple. Malty and hoppy. Rich flavor, although very strong. Aged in oak and it taste like it. Rich mellow oak tannins. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp and slightly dry. Aftertaste is bitter. No alcohol bite despite 8.4% alcohol. Interesting beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem OR
Says 9.8% alc
Clear light copper coloured ale with a nice cream coloured half inch head.
Aroma not very prominent..mostly bready malts and the slightest of spice from the rye.
Taste oddly different more fruity .. light peach..nectarine ( the yeast), some caramel malts and a touch of cascade hops. Nice actually
Nice smooth palate..very little sign of the strong alc volume.
I liked this one..strong but a good sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours like you would imagine clouds if they were raining beer. Aroma is slightly floral and some what reminiscent of rosewater. Just a hint of hops, but the palate is very light, and just slightly yeasty, with some zesty corrianer orange notes. Decent, but not blowing the wind up my skirt.
