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%, IBUís = 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 hazy orange amber with a slight creamy beige head. Aromas of fruit and yeast spice. Med body. flavor is yeasty and fruity. Thereís banana for sure. Itís very tasty. Dry and spicey finish. Hardly a trace of heat.

mansquito (4208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Big Top Beverage Mart, Rosyln variety case: Cloudy golden orange with a little head. Aroma is a bit malty, somewhat fruity. Taste is really sharp and a little bit too boozy. Aftertaste is a little too hard as well. I really donít like this. I had some yesterday and some more today, and it did not get any better.

wlajwl (4690) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Aroma is yeast, malts and baking spices. The flavor is spices, malts, light sweetness and a tangy/mildly tart finish.

rumproasts (4189) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2013
bottle. Golden with lots of sediment and small head. Not sure why thereís this much sediment in a tripel. This is pretty boozy, but flavor gets better as it warms up.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky amber-tan color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet with notes of fresh cut peaches and pears. The flavor was sweet and tangy table sugar followed by an almost overwhelming boozy presence that then led to notes of peach, pear, honey and bread. Long boozy finish with lingering peach and pear notes. Full bodied. Other than the massive booziness a really enjoyable brew.

zizzybalubba (1626) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. Pours a darker than anticipated orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of light candi sugar and citrus. The taste is more malt forward than most tripelís giving the beer a sweeter taste than expected. The lingering sweetness on the palate is not too cloying and is cut by the alcohol. This is more of a Belgian Strong Ale than a tripel in my opinion but it is a good beer.

bcline5 (2) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2013 does not count
Poured into a wine glass. Copper color, hazy due to live yeast. 1 finger of head that did not last long. Aroma was very strong banana, reminded me of a California Chardonnay. Taste was sweeter than other triples Iíve had, with a slightly boozy finish. Pretty good beer.

thornecb (4874) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours cloudy gold into a tulip. Bright white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel aromas. Dusty caramel and sour fruit front to back. Sweet lasting fruit finish.

JStax (3823) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a thin white head of foam. The aroma is very light. Vanilla, wood, grainy. The aroma is almost too light to detect. Taste is an estery sweet, malt forward. Drying on the palate. Alcohol is covered for the most part, but there is a twinge of heat in the finish.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle, I know I had this one as well as I remember the name, bottle and even the flavor. Heavy banana, and Belgian-y esters flowed in this one, lightly boozy with notes of pear, apple, grape juice and some light vegetal notes. Most American made triples are pretty bad and this was no exception.
