COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tripel Threat is a strong, hoppy, pale Belgian style ale brewed in the Belgian Monastic tradition. Using Belgian Trappist Ale yeast, Saaz hops, and Belgian Candy Sugar, the aroma exhibits a complex blend of spice, fruit, and malt. Well carbonated and initially light in mouthfeel, the aroma gives way to a spicy flavor and a warming sensation of alcohol.

Ernest (6307) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2004
RBSG Portland 2004, at the brewpub. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of banana and clove. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Another entry in the "get the obligatory banana esters and clove phenols and let’s call it a tripel" category. Too sweet, too lacking in character. Just a big banana-and-clove mess, IMHO.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Medium clear yellow. Mild yeast, bananas and sweet orange peel in the nose. Some spices, such as coriander and whatnot... a good harsh bite middrink, crisp with notcable alcohol. Bananas, cloves, and sharp spices in the finish. A very decent tripel.

On tap at the Widmer Brew Pub. Pours very light for a tripel, light orange with a small white head. Aroma had lots of spice to it with some good maltiness. Taste had some good spice to it with a bit of alcohol becoming present towards the end. Tastes like apple and citrus fruit, with a very smooth mouthfeel.

Medium orange color. Small head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied triple. Malts are fruity and sweet, apricots and oranges. Slightly spicy hops. Not a lot of the bright Belgian yeast character in it for me, but it has the typical fruitiness of a Belgian. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Tap @ Gasthaus for RBSG 04’
The aroma is brutal with phenols & alcohol, extremely spicy, almost gagging. The flavor is full bodied & curdling on the palate with alcohol and yeast. The finish is balanced with moderate citrus character. Good though!

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Deep yellow-gold. Soft, creamy and smooth; maybe even a little sticky, too. Spicy (coriander, pepper, clove) and a little herbal. Ironically, I found this to be spicier than their saison. No offenses, but it was way too sweet for my blood.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2004 Starts off real nice, but becomes overly sweet. Aroma is great, I swear there is corriander in this. Great bitterness. Nice citrus taste. Could be more balanced, but this was good. ReRate: Nice bubblegum flavor going on here.
