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

# 3566 ersma: wo kommt das her? manchmal findet man ja was im keller, von dem man keine ahnung hat, wie es da reingekommen ist. orange-bernsteinfarben und leicht trübe. wenig schaum, der recht flüchtig ist. der geruch ist röstmalzig mit karamellnoten. dazu kräuternoten. der antrunk ist süßlich, malzig, melassig. aromen von karamell, nassem heu, herben kräutern und honig. leicht spritig. die mitte bringt hopfen mit, gleichzeitig wird es klebrig an den lippen. der abgang ist überraschend herb, obwohl röstmalz, karamell und das melassige prägend bleiben. die flasche ist ok. fazit: etwas süß und klebrig für ein tripel. die aromen sind bis aufs melassige aber angenehm und ausgewogen. gut trinkbar. 9,10,11,12,12,11 - 10,85

Bottle from On the Fly. Close, but no cigar. Everything right in the wheelhouse for the style, herbal and grassy notes, but nothing exceptional.

theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Aroma is light belgian, lemony, maybe some tropical fruits, rye bread. Nice but a bit underwhelming... had to really search for the aroma. Appearance is golden straw, crystal clear, tiny little head that fell flat quickly. This was a bottle on a non refrigerated shelf so that could be to blame for the non-existent head.... maybe. Taste is citrus forward, big sweet malt, pronounced bitterness.. maybe from hops but reminds me of orange peel. Palate is medium. This beer has too much alcohol heat and a hint of astringency. No creaminess at all. Comes across a bit watery , flavors disappear quickly. Too bitter for my taste. Overall this beer doesn’t pay off. A difficult beer to do well. Too big and just ends up being sloppy.

Une triple, certes pas d’abbaye, comme indiqué, mais néanmoins bien typée et d’un niveau abv respectable de 10 % … Signalons le bouchon qui nous parle de brasserie alimentée en solaire... A vrai dire, on s’en tape, c’est dans le verre que ça se passe … Couleur doré brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, partout, très nombreuses. Mousse blanche crémeuse, joli nappage général à 2 mm. Arômes de blé, houblons, pointe d’oignons confits, marmelade de pommes. 1ère bouche quasi veloutée, à la très belle entame pleine, sur malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche où un côté épicé/fleuri un peu indéfinissable domine, agréable mais incongru. 2ème à la très belle texture, et à l’ensemble bien malté, mais pas très harmonieux. Arrière-bouche pleine aussi, longue, mais pas vraiment heureuse. 3ème à la texture splendide, et un peu mieux intégrée. Arrière-bouche large, ample, avec des nuances intéressantes et d’autres moins. Longueur plus nette, très belle, pleine, maltée. Jambes groupées, serrées, fines. Levure douce, mais bien trop faible pour une triple de ce niveau. Alcool pas du tout accablant, progressif, mais il n’harmonise pas l’ensemble. Finale belle et profonde, quoique manquant un peu de complexité. CONCLUSION : beaucoup de bonnes choses donc, en particulier la texture remarquable, mais on manque de l’harmonie des vraies triples ...

Bottle split at LKS HeIgHtS, thanks to Fergus, 21/04/15. Very lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is caramel, grain, paper, straw, pretty basic aroma. Taste improves comprising caramel, light spice, prunes, vanilla, dates, light booze. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, light warming booze in the close. So so affair, a very basic model lacking any depth or complexity.

35,5cl flesje via Firma Bier Alcoholpercentage van 10% Uitgeschonken in Leffe glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje, schuimkraag trekt snel weg Aroma en smaak: fruitig beetje als dadel, kandijsuiker, honingachtig, erg zoet, Belgisch gist Conclusie: tripel met voornamelijk zoete tonen, daardoor niet echt verrassend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks to Fergus. Pale orange, lightly sparkling, pretty clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is biscuits, varnish, caramel, a bit meaty. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is boozey up front, biscuits, buttery, dry. Too much booze up-front for my liking. But alright.
