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%, IBU’s = 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.

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.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2010
There’s really nothing about this beer that I found worth wanting another. I suppose the appearance is the highlight, with a nice lightly coppered orange color. However, flavors are thin and occasionally unpleasant. Not likely to find a place in my rotation.

Golden pour with minimal white head. Aroma of floral hops, soap, grass, and light malt. Flavor of sugar, clove, spice. Overly sweet.

polishwarrior (19) - USA - APR 21, 2010
From bottle and sampled from brewery. Pours a golden color with a thin head. Aroma was kinda that of bread/yeast. Taste had a pleasant sweetness to it. Palate with full bodied, almost syrup like. Overall this is well balanced and very enjoyable.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2010
Sampled at tasting at stevo’s. Pours yellow with white head. The aroma is banana, bread, cookies, vanilla, and mild spiciness. The falvor is lemon, banana, clove, a little bit of pepper, and some light sweetness. Textbook, but good.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2010
Cloudy gold, thin ring of foam. The words "yeasty" and " boozy" figure prominently in my review. Also some white wine notes, as well. Not bad, but not really to my taste.

decaturstevo’s stevofest part 2. Sample from a bottle thanks to decaturstevo. Clear yellow, thin white ring. Aroma is spicy, alcohol. Taste is must the same, musty, spicy, alcohol. Pretty boring.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2010
12oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Clear and quite clean-looking pour, which - as several raters have noted already - resembles apple juice with a bit more carbonation (but not cider dank). Nose is heavily malty to me, with ripe fruits and just a faint spiciness, far less than I want from a tripel. Mouthfeel is quite nice, with a slightly oily feel at first, then pleasant carbonation leading to a semi-dry finish. But this just tastes more like a strong biere de garde to me, and not an especially good one at that.
