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)

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 (4567) - 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.

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.

Flaska från SB. Lagrad ett år. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, torkad frukt, päron, honung, brunt socker, bröd, örter med toner av jäst och jord. Lagom sötma, fruktig, rund och len med fin beska.

En god triple, der helt klart smager igennem af humlen, ellers passer den godt til stilen.

bubbleflubber (2207) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Pours golden-amber into the glass, with a nice fluffy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is of distinct bran cereal and yeasty esters. Flavors have caramel, banana, fruit breads and indistinct berry jam, finishing with a nice pie spice, accentuating a numbing clove aspect. The spices, clove and malty sweetness work together well in the mouth, providing an actively carbonated, medium-bodied Belgian offering. The palate is substantial, but not heavy, with some nicely sweet complexities at play. The ABV is hidden well for a high gravity Belgian Tripel. Nice job on this one. Very enjoyable.

A not too bad tripel by the Anderson Valley Brewing. I liked the combination of a Belgian technique with American hops.
