COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the third scratch beer, we delved into our old Belgian notes and decided to go big for a nice warming feeling when you drink this beer,” says John Trogner. “This unfiltered golden ale is 10.1% abv. It is spicy and quite dry with a hint of noble hops. The yeast is the real flavor in this beer and we used a different yeast strain than we use for The Mad Elf. This yeast creates that drier taste.

From bottle, blindtasting #10. Pours hazy yellow with a diminished white head. Dry malty aroma, somewhat cotton like. Mild spiced and dry hoppy base flavoured, yet with a solid sweet malt base - clearly declining towards the finish. Light malty note. Dry and spiced finish, lasting bitter and dry impression into the far finish.

brokensail (10642) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is a very turbid golden orange color with a thin white head forming a ring around the glass. S: Lots of spice to it and intensely sweet. There’s an almost meaty character to it, too. Fairly decent floral with lots of sugary notes and sort of oxidized. T: This beer is pretty sweet. Caramel sauce, sugar, brown sugar, and fairly oxidized. There’s some floral and maybe honey notes. Definitely old, but not bad. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Surprisingly decent for a three year old tripel. I probably wouldn’t want to have this again, but good enough for the tick.

GABF ’07. Pours yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, hay, straw), average hops (herbs), average yeast (earth) with notes of banana. Medium bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a lighter and cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized head. Lots of floaters. Aromas of spices, yeast, citrus, and fruity. Tastes of spices (though not as strong or in the forefront as the aromas), vanilla, fruity and had a candi sugar sweetness to it (but not overly sweet). Medium alcohol finish (but I would not guess 10+%).
