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.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2012
12 oz bottle and served in my gold rimmed Ommegang tulip to match the golden foil on the bottle ;-) Pours a medium golden hue with some floaties with a small but lasting fizzy head, spotty lace. The aroma has notes of pale golden grains, some caramel and biscuit, a surprising pear and kiwi fruitiness, a kiss of sugar and honey, along with a touch of woody esters. Not as yeasty nor as boozy on the nose as most Abbey Tripels. The taste is more sweeter and malt forward than the nose with some fruity and earthy tones. A bit of spicy hops and even a bit of sea salt character on the very edges of the tongue. Interesting to say the least, not quite like any Tripel I have had before, a good thing and a bad thing. Sort of got boring after half the bottle. The mouth feel is a tad tepid and chalky, good job of hiding the alcohol IMO. Overall a good beer but methinks it is something I will not buy again. Better Abbey Tripels on the market I would rather enjoy.

Golden Pour. Nose of alcohol and fermented fruit. Taste pretty straightforward - Consistent with the aroma. Average Trippel. Nothing that I would purchase again.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades very slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet fruity nose and flavor is sweet light fruit and spice. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.50 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

12 ounce bottle with gold foil. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet dusty bananas, some yeast. A nice brew; sweet but not overly so, light spices, banana and some berries, very dry and dusty as if its aged a bit. Enjoyable, triples are often hard to love for me but this was good.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy golden orange with minimal white head. Aroma of sweet apples, bubblegum dental floss, candied sugar, subtle Belgian yeast, and cotton candy - un-classic tripel, more on the sweeter side. Flavour of sweetened apples and pears, bubblegum, some cotton candy, phenols and a bit of booze. Sweeter and less dry / yeast than I like my tripels, but it’s well-executed for what it is.
