COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made with one grain and 4 Belgian yeasts, a deceptive golden color, and a malty palate lend complexity to this Belgian Trippel Ale. ABV = 10%, IBUís = 31, OG = 23.1 P

The three headed Hellhound of Greek Mythology, that stood at the gates to Hades, lends his name and three heads to this elegant, full bodied Belgian Style Trippel Ale. A deceptive golden color and wonderful malty palate bring bold complexity to this big brew.

glennmastrange (2240) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, moderate to heavy lemon and perfume for the hops, moderate earth and soap for the yeast with hints of apple, coriander, wood and white wine. Head is small, wispy, white with some lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is slightly hazy lemon yellow. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. An okay Tripel, bold but just a little too abrupt in flavor.

Strykzone (4897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2010
An effervescent golden beer that has a nice thick yellowish head. Oodles of bubbles float up. Very pleasant fruit aroma with yeast and honey. Flavor begins buttery with citrus fruit, yeast, honey, banana. Finish brought out some hops and was on the sour side. Tasty.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle has notes of hay, cough drop, citrus and sweet dough. Medium yellow hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is sweet and musty. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft. Overall a good Tripel but I found it highlighted everything I donít like about the style. Too much cough drop.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Clear golden pour with suspended small granules and white head with lacing. Nose is like cleaning supplies, chlorine, with sweet banana and cane sugar as it warms. Flavor is very sweet alcohol and vanilla, and a little bandaid antiseptic. A little cloying on the palate.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2010
This poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some spices and lemons. Maybe a hint of vanilla. The flavor is pretty much the same with a sweet finish. Pretty standard issue Tripel really but ok.
