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.

Ughsmash (7157) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a dense, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up bright white pepper, clove, and floral (lavender?) spicage over bready malts.. light green apple and other light fruits showed as it warmed.. spicy and warm. The flavor found honey-kissed biscuity malts on the warm core.. tacky spices (black pepper and darker fruits above all else) around.. finished with peppery spicage and alcohol warmth.. tasty stuff! Medium-plus bodied with lower carbonation.. spicy and engaging.. I enjoyed it.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2012
12oz bottle. Thin white head. Totally hazy orange amber color. Yeast particles floating about. Little lace. Nice light crisp carbonation, dry texture. Bigger body. Caramel, belgian yeasts, candi sugar. Little alcohol taste, not too much. Hint of smokiness. Nice bitter spicy taste, some savory. Nice to sip - a well done tripel. 10% ABV is well-hidden.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours cloudy murky yellow brown. Aroma of Belgian yeast, toffee, candy floss, candied sugar, fruity. Flavour is the same. Medium bodied. Nice example of the style.

Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Clear orange until I got to the yeast, then moderately hazed orange amber color. Yeast particulates at bottom of glass. Just one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is lacking, but a good sized ring of lacing is left. 4.5 S: Wonderfully spicy with white pepper, clove, and hints of corriander. Mildly yeasty. Flowery hops with a touch of herbalness in there as well. Somewhat sugary with peach, pear, and apple fruitiness. Very well done. 4.0 T: Tastes like the nose, but perhaps a bit less impressive. Peppery with lesser clove and corriander from the yeast with a moderate yeastiness. Flowery and sugary with hay like earthiness joining the scene. Peach, pear, and apple fruitiness again. Booze well in check. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good carbonation level and while it is somewhat spritzy, it isn’t spritzy enough. Good creaminess though. 4.0 D: Tasty beer. I only wonder if I’m rating this higher than I should since I haven’t had a decent tripel in ages. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-10-2012 02:52:44

Chudwick (2173) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 21, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear bronze with thin off-white head. Nose is alcohol, pear and caramel malts. Flavor adds desert fruit and more alcohol. Taste is sweet, real sweet. Dry finish that will make me snore all night. It almost tastes like soap in a weird way, but keeps me wanting more. Clive Barker couldn’t have made a better beer if he tried.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small beige head. Yeasty and fruity aroma with some herbal notes. Nice yeast flavor with soft fruit (very little banana) and earthy herbal notes. Not overly sweet and the alcohol is well hidden.

Very good tripel. It seems like it has more yeast than others. And it’s way sweeter than any other tripel I had. Worth a try.

The aroma is peppery as hell; estery, flowery hop. Orange rind. Touch of dry white wine. Spicy, musty. Looks cloudy, yellow-orange. Ring of pure white head, crown of lace. Sediment and tiny bubbles. The flavor is orange peel, champagne notes. Peppery malts, touch of spicy peppercorns. Some definite horseblanket flavors. The palate is dry, fizzy, a little sandpapery. Very bubbly. It’s like a strong mimosa: not really my style but pretty good.
