COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triple Voodoo Inception is based on a Belgian Tripel recipe but is distinctly different from other Trappist ales. Inception is bright and clear with a sharp alcohol note in the beginning and an added twist of black currant in the center of the flavor profile. The beer finishes clean and has a solid malty backbone. This unique flavor profile was achieved using a special hop varietal. The high hop load also makes it reminiscent of an IPA and gives it that unique California characteristics.

Fatehunter (1406) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Almost two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body. The aroma is all barnyard. It’s not the nicest smell but it’s exactly a barnyard. The taste is light with mild lemon bitterness, a little banana and not much else. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation and medium body. A fairly average ale. It’s not bad but there’s nothing to remember it by.

I filled my glass with a hazy, dark apricot liquid topped with a small but persistent off-white head. The aroma is lightweight, not a huge presence out of the bottle, and not too much more once it’s in the glass. Lightly sour on top, the brew slides under my tongue with a bit of a salty taste. Dark berries and dough are persistent, and the palate is nice, comfortable, with a good carbonation that lasts throughout the glass. The richness of the malt is only apparent in the present swallow, despite the thick texture; it disappears quickly, not keeping a lasting impression in the finish. Not a huge fan, but definitely not a bad Belgian style.

TEJA (1376) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2014
Draught at the 21:st Amendment pub (2012). Firm white head. solid golden color. Small belgian / phenolic aroma. Malty taste with residual sweetness and a light caramell taste. Defenatly Belgian but lacks complexity.

22oz bottle - Aroma - raisins, bready, light spices, and some alcohol Appearance - golden amber body, cloudy, 3-finger beige head, average retention, spotty lacing Mouthfeel - smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation Overall - a pretty nice Californian made Belgian ale. Recommended to try and now I have a new brewery to dig into.

GarrettB (1097) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2014
February 16th, 2013 - Voodoo’s Inception shakes hands with the nose by leading with a soft tangerine sweetness, and the pucker of sour cherries. A second smell brings raspberries to the fruit bowl too, and the darker, softer sugar of blueberries - a nice aroma, and very apropos of Spring. The palate is thusly surprisingly heavy, weighed by the body and gravity, and not by carbonation or bubbles. The tangerine, raspberry, blueberry mixture appears again in the flavor, bigger in the aftertaste and long and lingering. The foretaste is dominated by a prominent booziness, but overall this brew is defined by its fruity flavors, more elegant on the nose, but tasty on the tongue, too.

"don’t know about the currant they speak of, but it does kinda sorta taste like a fruity, hoppier than usual triple. a little bit muddled, though i do appreciate the sweet tropical and slightly bitter flavor combinations."

Bottle. Sweet and mild for 8%. Pours a slightly hazy gold/orange with a nice white head. Nose is fruity aroma. Maybe some apple. Good.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pour is cloudy golden with a foamy white head. Aroma and flavor are both a bit funky - dark fruit, Belgian yeast, cloves, spice, raisins, and booze. Finish is a bit sweeter than the body.

Aquilo (556) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Cloudy golden color with a thick head and lots of lace. Funky aroma Is almost off-putting, but there’s a hint of fruit in there. Flavor is mellow bitterness, with dried fruit notes. Smooth.

FROM NOTES: August 9, ’12. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a "Beer Hunter" tulip glass. A: Smells like a tripel - deep sweetness, clove and the standard Belgian spices, though slightly modified, with a hint of allspice. A: Pours a medium-dark orangish gold. Clear at first and then cloudy with yeast at the end of the bottle. Only about a finger of off-white foam formed and then settled to ring. Bits of lacing. T: Starts with a mix of Belgian yeast and banana flavor with some spices mixed in. Through the middle a bit stronger spices come through with some fruity esters and lemon flavor and fades to finish with a slightly muddled mix of yeast and spices. P: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp. O: A plesant, well made Belgian on a mountain of hop bombs.
