COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Similar to Belgian-style Strong Pales, the Tripel is often characterized by its lighter color, spicy aromatics, and complexity. Brother David’s Triple is brewed with copious amounts of pale malts as well as Belgian candi sugar, giving it a deep golden hue, medium body and rich mouth feel. The dense head gives off aromas of candied orange peel, clover honey, pears, and a hint of freshly mown fields. The fruity esters and spicy hop flavors balance the phenolic characteristics leading to a peppery, citrusy finish.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Pilsner, Munich (20L)

HOPS:
Columbus, Sterling

TtV (458) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 Bottle 355ml. Deep yellow, small white head, little carbonation. Aroma is sweetish, peaches, malts. The taste is mildly sweet with a bitter undertone. Lots of fruits: peaches, grapefruit, etc. The aftertaste leaves you with a warm glow of alcohol and bitterness.

Dark orange yellow with slight white head, full-bodied. Boozy and slightly fruity aroma. Peach sweetness to the taste fades as the beer warms, leading to more sourness and bitter aftertaste. Not a real Abbey tripel, just an OK beer.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Poured at home in a snifter. Rusty orange in color with a small head for a triple. Fruity aroma with apples, pears, peaches, candied sugars, and biscuit. Taste is as fruity as aroma, biscuit, candied sugars. Meium light carb, light mouthfeel.

Bottle. It pours a rich, deep golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma is pretty sweet and boozy with some alcohol, orange, marzipan, honey and light spicy yeast notes. The flavor is the same. Lots of alcohol, orange, honey, bread dough and a decent amount of spicy/fruity yeast in the finish. Very sweet and virtually no hop character. Not really my idea of a nice Tripel.

jbruner (4747) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow from the bomber with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big Belgian esters, banana, bubblegum, wheat. Taste follows, clean and easy, not my style but solid.

355ml bottle at home. Somewhat hazy orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite sweet, but Well balanced with subtle bitter tones. Peach, tropical fruits, citrus, some yeast, grass and some herbs. Very tasty triple, liked this one a lot.

3.5
Danjo312 (107) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2015
Supergeiles Belgian Trippel. Ultra malzig und schön fruchtig. Trockenfrüchte und Apfel dominieren. Extrem würzig und lecker. Den hohen Alk-Gehalt merkt man kaum. Schöne Krone, verschwindet schnell. Leicht trüb, goldgelb. Lang anhaltender Malzgeschmack und im Verlauf süßer werdend. Bei gefühlt 10-12 Grad perfekt erfrischend und vollmundig. Und auch hier: wunderschöne Flasche! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours cloudy golden straw with a thick white head. Aroma is like apple juice and Graham crackers. It’s got a decided Belgian bubblegum flavor with a bit of juice. This is kind of tart with a ton of flour and nut in the tongue. This is pretty good.
