Naked Elf takes a hard look at the less-is-more theory. Ever since we developed The Mad Elf, we’ve speculated what it would taste like without the cherries and honey. So what lies beneath the fruit? Naked Elf is unfiltered, so the spicy yeast taste is more prominent in this strong, hazy orange ale. The combination of the Pilsner, and Vienna malts give a lot of body and minimal sweetness, but Naked Elf has a dry finish. Finally, the heat of the alcohol makes its presence known in the finish. The Naked Elf’s finest quality is the delicate balancing act between a lively yeast kick and a slight alcohol note that lingers in the back of the mouth—constantly reminding us not to overindulge in this complex, warming elixir.

Draft at taproom. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Orange and Other juicy fruit on the nose. Solid triple aspects on the tongue. Finished with that warming thing you get from mad elf. An interesting experiment but I'm missing the fullness and the fruitiness of the mad elf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via trade. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has sweet candies and some toffee and caramel. The taste is more sweet than anything, but I get some spice as well. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, light spice, some toasted malt, I’m not sure this is a tripel in my opinion, this is pretty basic stuff, not much to get excited about.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2015
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg labeled 7.5%. Clear amber orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving some bits of lace. Medium to bigger body, smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Mild slick texture. Toasty malt and mild burnt sugars, little bit of mild spiciness, touch of fruity banana ester, mild caramel. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness, very mild warmth. Is this a tripel? Kind of, but more amber than typical. I call it a belgian amber ale. Solid overall.

The brew itself is a good representation of the triple style. The fruit notes make it the Xmas style but it’s still a little less than the original mad elf. Tap and bottle

matty (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber color with a brief off-white head. Aroma is sweet, some spice, banana and a little bit of alcohol (maybe some dried fruit?). Medium-full body, the taste is yeast forward - spice, banana with a bit of sweetness in the back. Finish is a little dry but with an alcohol kick. Good stuff!

jsmerig (1464) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a clear reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of cinnamon and spice. Taste is sweet with a light maltiness and dry spiciness in the finish. The only thing missing is the heavy sweetness/maltiness. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
