OH BROTHER! is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. <P>This crisp, straw-colored ale is blessed with a host of spicy and fruity aromas. We brew it from pilsener malt, candy sugar and some very non-traditional hop choices. But hey, we never said we were monks. We’re just brothers.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Overly sweet for the style, this Tripel attempt showcases orange peel and egg pie wackiness in a hefty body marred by tart manneurisms.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy orangey blond.
-Soapy notes delve into bubblegum in the nose.
-Citrusy wheat seems confused.
-This is a good example of how Americanized Tripels can be off the mark. Then again, it’s hard to believe this bottle contained the brew they really wanted to get...

Bomber. Dirty yellow golden pour, fairly clear, small head. Quite sweet - candied sugar, light fruit and yeast. Not bad.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a mild to moderate malt presence with sweet fruit (grapes, apples) and light spices. The flavor has an interesting mixture of fruits (apple, lemon citrus), wine, yeast, and moderate sweetness. On the lighter side. This was not my favorite triple.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2006
Bottle: Dirty straw in color, very cloudy, thin white foamy head, spotty lacing.   Grassy aroma, fairly floral, some fiery spices, almost like garlic.   Muted floral flavors, very yeasty/bready.   Slight citrus aspect, but its very quick.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leans towards the thin side.   Finishes with a touch of cereal, soft floral aspect.   Remains semi-sweet after the finsih.   Tiz okay, but not like most Belgian Tripels.   Thanks JCaprioti for the trade!

Bomber bottle aged over a year and served in Duvel snifter:

Tasted side by side with Ommegang Tripel Perfection and Straffe Hendrik Brugs Tripelbier 9°

App: Amber orangy hue with almost no head nor lace, nearly lifeless. Even with the etched glass this struggled to produce any bubbles, sort of ugly compared to the other two. (2)

Aroma: Heavy toffee, candi sugar and bready malts, plummy, pitty, almonds, herbal, flowery and even a tad meaty. Much more different than the other two, smells simply sweeter and less fruity. (6)

The taste starts with some honey and sugary components, rich layers of malt and even some marizpan. Slight pop of leafy and grassy hops before lingering clove like spice and fruit nut cereal finish. Seems actually the most rustic and traditional tasting of the three. The aging does bring out some yeasty rustic notes as it warmed but that was welcomed. (7)

Mouth Feel and Overall: Very smooth alcohol presence on the palate, lush, oily and forgiving (4) Well it has it moments and shows some tribute to the classic style, this brew can not hold up the critic nor the old school tried and tested recipe. Ultimately the biggest knock I have of this brew is this unwillingness to go for the gold, seems happy being what it is. (13)

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Rating #100 of Illinois brewed beers. 22 oz bottle purchased from Party Liquors (Steger, IL). Bought on a whim and because it was in the cooler and was to be promptly drank. Pours a hazy amber hue, with bits of gold nestled into the body. Medium white head that sticks around, laces, and continues to grow as the bottle is continously poured in. Aromas are fruity and belgian yeasty spice in a nutshell, a touch of estery presence, banana and citrus, mix well with some belgian candy sugar and spice. Taste is similar, lighter bodied, but still a presence. Dry yet fruity sweetness, interesting, but not a favorite. Finishes with a bit of a remembrance of the flavor. Cheers!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 Clear straw color with nice lacing. Lagar yeast then peppery, musky smell. light body. Nice taste is grainy, yeasty, with an essence of oak. Finishes crisp and clean. A great triple
