COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, we’ve crafted a beer that incorporates the best characteristics of both tripels and dubbels. Trubbel boasts the strength and spiciness of a tripel and the rich malt character of a dubbel. We brew this uncommon ale with a classic Belgian yeast strain, dark Belgian candi sugar, and a unique blend of specialty malts, producing subtle biscuit, chocolate, and caramel overtones. 22°

This beer rocks! Very dark beer with a murky, burnt orange color when held up to bright light. Creamy, well-tanned head with great retention. The nose is awesome; a marriage of styles... abbey, dubbel and lambic-like. Tart cherries, citrus fruit and prune. The flavor is also tart with citrus fruit and very smooth malt. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, tart, tangy, astringent finish. World class ale!

Bottle gifted by Leafs93. Wow. Again impressed by this young brewery. Pours a cloudy brown color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, and Belgian spice. Sweet caramel taste, with chocolate notes and Belgian spice. This mix works very well. Love it.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2002
Pours a deep cloudy brown, enormous chocolate head, tons of lace, fairly large malt nose, hints of fruit, caramel. Front is malt sweet, the top medium and acidic, the finish dry, moderate carbonation, fair to middlin hop presence. VERRRRRRY Interrrresting! Beer, pretty decent I’d say Thanks JCA I bet right out the cask it must be a ’Hoot’.

Slightly acrid scent, but not unpleasant. Light brown head that was sufficiently thick, the beer itself was a dark caramel color. I tasted apple and maybe some grape, it was nicely bitter. The carbonation was mild and the aftertaste was smooth. This is a unique beer for me, the tartness works very well.

This really is somewhere between a Dubbel and Trippel! Appears like a classic Dubbel, with the aroma somewhere between a sour lambic and spicier trippel. Make sure to get the full aroma before tasting, as I was shocked by the sourness and white wine taste at first. Picking up the scent led to the remaining sips that matched the aroma. Mimimal carbonation and moderate mouth action. I'd love to see other brewers attempt this fine hybrid. However, it is hard to believe they'd do much better.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 2, 2013
Deep ruby with a firm head. Aroma is dark fruits, candied malts, toffee, raisin. Mouth is much more creamy than expected. A light carbonation bite but mostly smooth, thick, creamy. Flavor is dark, ripe fruit, candied sugar malts, toffee, and just a hint if alcohol in the finish. Highly enjoyable brew. The 9% is well hidden, which meant I drank it a bit faster than I would normally have. Very good. (Firkin)

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2004
This is a very unique Belgian. The aroma is spicy, with a very dark murky pour, and a HUGE head. The taste is strongly medicinal with a strong alchohol bite, spicey and herbal, tart and citrusy. A nice mixture of several Belgian styles.

ryanscourt (552) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Black/dark brown, nice lacing. Strong malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is follows sweet. Really like the nice fruity flavors. Nice mouth fill, with low carbonation. Didn’t really notice the trippel spiciness, but the large dubble malt body is there. Alcohol is apparent as well but blends in nicely. Aftertaste is pleasant as smooth, Apparently only comes out every couple years. Best one ive tried from yards.

750ml bottle. Poured a dark mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of bananas, dark fruits, all around fruity, and yeast. Tastes of bananas, some bread, dark fruits, and chocolate.
