COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Weíre just brothers.

Bottle from yem25 I think. Thanks. The aroma is pretty yeasty with hints of oranges, banana, and spice. Some sweet bread and some sugars too. Pours a golden orange tone with no head really. The flavor is sweet and fruity. Yeast, orange, apples, sugar, pilsner malts. No pepper or bitterness at all, just a mild alcohol warmth in the finish. Sweet, fruity, one dimensional, but not bad.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, 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!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow body with a mostly white head. Sweet and malty up front with loads of fruit. Tart cherries, citrus, sweet alcohol latent candied sugars, bananas and a hint of lemon. Apple and some chewy sweetness with a light tart finish. A mild spiciness also finds its way in here as well. This beer was all over the place, i enjoyed it.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2005
This is a nice drink, but not "extreme or unusual" as advertized. It pours a slightly hazed golden body with a very short-lived fizzy white head that couldnít care less about lacing. Itís got a soft, yeastily fruity aroma - bananas, cherries, orange (?) - and is a little tart. Lively in the mouth, it has a sweet malt and citric flavor backed up by cloves and white pepper. Itís got a sticky-dry, peppery finish. Despite itís 8.5% abv, this comes across more like a Belgian golden ale than it does an abbey tripel.

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.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota. Pours a hazy golden brew with a thick white head that has some nice retention, spotty lacing that dissipates toa fine film and thin ring. Aroma of golden multi-grain malt, coriander, banana ester, candi sugar and a touch of orange zest. Taste is creamy, malty, light carbonation with flavors of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, coriander and some orange peel. Finish is slighlty spicy, some banana esters and a touch of white pepper. According to past ratings from two years ago it looks like Two Brothers have tweaked the recipe making this a fine Tripel to come out of America. Nice to see Two Brothers brought this one out of retirement after two years.

Thanks for the bottle, Duane. I was expecting a lot after enjoying Hop Juice. Hazy medium gold colored body. The aroma is Granny Smith apples with cinnamon and some light mango. The taste is warm peach pie with cinnamon. There is also some tart cherries in the finish. This is toward the fruity end of tripels, but not overly sweet. The body is smooth and relatively thin for the style. This is a beer that begs to be savored. Decent.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of acid, spices, cinnamon, apples, and dust. Poured light orange/brown in color with a small tan head that disappeared. Cloudy. Full of tiny and small particles. Turbid. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of yeast, apples, candi sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and spices. Medium body. Sticky texture. Soft carbonation. Sweet, spiced finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Not quite straw and too light for golden, a liquid that is quite yellow and orange in color. A slight haze. Head diminishes rather quickly leaving a ring and thin lid of tiny bubbles. Interesting aromas, with mild attic dust, light fruit and touch of marzipan. It does make your nose work. Does seem very light on the palate with a small bubble lift off the tongue. I must use the word interesting again. Quite dry for a tripel. Some more dust, along with with light citrus, and a honey dryness. Has some sparkling mead qualities. Light spice note mid quaff. Not a lot of malt flavors floating about in this one. more white vinous qualities. It does not fit the triple style that well, but it sure fits the belgian strong category.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 20, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with with yeast swirls dark orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy malty and caramel malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The balanced flavor contained notes of malt hops and caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
