Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

Guest tap tulip at Flossmoor Station. I’ve got a 2002 bottle from trade in my cellar, but here’s a chance to try it fresh on tap: Cloudy yellow overlay on a golden pils type body. Stiff white head with yellow flecks. Sweet, alcoholic smell with a comforting malt backing. Taste starts with bitter orange peel, some wit spices like coriander and grains of paradise, but all in good harmony. taste is not quite as sweet as the smell, or as a Tripel would expect to taste. Some slight weizen esters. Light on hops, which is a good thing for my scratchy throat right now. Slight bubblegum finish.

From tap @ BBF 2014. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, sweet, fruity, a bit spicy. Flavor is moderate sweett and light bitter, light caramel and fruity, no alchool.

Bottle pour average gold with thin white head. Nose Belgian yeast, mild sugar, and spice. Nice balance to aroma. Taste esters come out up front, coriander, allspice, and some sugar. Mid palate balancing sweet malt. Light spicy bitter finish. I always enjoy this one. Fear the monkey!

The best American tripel I’ve had so far. Dark golden and velvety, small silky head, buttery taste and mouthfeel. Essences of spice, floral and some fruit. A little bit of tang and alcohol warmth on the tail end. Nice job!

bottle. Golden with small head. Sweet and boozy with moderate belgian spice. A little over the top, but nice nonetheless.

Nice aromas of lemon, honey, yeast, lots of spices. Spicy with coriander, cilantro, maybe cloves. Grassy. Honey. Lovely!

My personal go-to for an inexpensive tripel. I love this stuff and tend to keep a sixer on hand most of the time.

Very good beer. Strong flavor comes from high alcohol content. Love that two beers does the job ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chimay glass. Appears a cloudy orange with a bit of white head. Smells light, orange peel, lemon, and yeast. Tastes nice, lemon, orange, coriander, cloves, and yeast. Pretty floral. The palate is medium. A pretty good Tripel! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
