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.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Brew Kettle Ogrefest 2008, 2/13: Light amber w/ a thin, but lasting off white head. Peppery and banana yeast, and lightly floral w/ a dry malt aroma. Light green apple & sulphury yeast as well, barely noticeable, but present. Gets more fruity as it warms with some candy sugar sweetness, rose, and white grape juice aromas. Lightly sulphury yeast flavor initially. A bit bitter in balance, but pleasant and dry. Fruity, banana, peppery yeast, with pear and green apple notes. Pils malt flavor also, and what seems to be a wheat malt flavor and tang/tartness. Low herbal hop flavor and a dry finish w/ some sugary sweetness up front. Bitterness into the finish and lingering aftertaste which is also herbal. Highly carbonated lightens the body, and smooth at first, dries out when swallowed. Well hidden alcohol for the most part is lighly warming. Great yeast character in this beer, and a really nice version of a Belgian classic from a local brewer.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Initial samples from the Winter Warmer Festival in Cleveland, it’s so nice to see Thirsty Dog brewing in oHIo again. A newer offering from this brewery, which is a 10% abv Belgian Tripel. Aroma is exceptionally fruity with prominent banana and citrus notes followed by a sharp peppery spice. Rich golden pour, vibrant when held to the light. Pencil thin white head and some mild spotty lacing. Medium thickness, the mouth feel is easy with a noticeable alcohol bite. Finish is dry with a slight watery quality. Big malty flavor, earthy and fruity (orange and banana) coupled with pepper and coriander. A fresh funkiness adds to the familiar Belgian yeast. It’s fresh and still a touch boozy, but it drinks real nice and provides a nice comfort.

Dogbrick (9639) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2008
On draught at Winking Lizard in Columbus, served in a snifter. It’s been awhile since I have had an opportunity to try a new Thirsty Dog beer. The beer pours a mostly clear amber-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Latticework of lace on the glass. The aroma has a nice spiced character with notes of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with spice, earthy malt and citrusy hops flavors. The finish is spicy and mildly bitter with a moderate amount of yeast and tart fruit in the aftertaste. Pretty well done all around.

Draft growler from Party Town. Poured clear orange gold hue with a medium off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate aroma of tart citrus, herbs and earthy. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium cough drop bittersweet flavor with medium sweet finish with small alcohol bite. Complex flavor and enjoyable.

shigadeyo (3296) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2008
1/02/2008: Thirsty Dog Cerberus has a bright golden color. The carbonation is lively, but comprised of small bubbles (this makes for a smooth and creamy palate). There is a creamy and lasting beige head that creates good, frothy lacing from the top to the bottom of the glass. This beer is subtle and complex. The aroma is delicately spicy with a touch of dry smokiness. The flavor is lightly fruity with a nice pale maltiness, sweet, and some kind of medicial flavor toward the backside. There is some staying bitterness that grabs the back of the throat as well. This beer is strong, but the alcohol is well disguised. I really like the palate. This beer has a medium body, but is fells soft, smooth, and mellow, if not almost creamy. This is a really drinkable beer!

Growler fill from Party Town in Florence, Kentucky shared by Tmoney99. Thanks again Tom! Rating #1 for this beer...
