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.

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 (6020) - 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.

Dark golden color with a strong and distinctly Belgian style flavor. Punchy and full with hints of spice and citrus.

On tap. Pours with a clear golden body with a fluffy white head. Aromas are super fruity, estery, phenol, alcohol, pepper. All yeast character and not particularly pleasant or integrated. Flavors show lots of esters, lightly sweet, fruity, phenol, pepper, clove. Limited malt notes. Alcohol. Lively bubbles and pretty dry.
