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

IndianaRed (5035) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy, light orange, amber witha very nice, dense creamy off white head that is maintained very wel byt he continous effervensnce. The lacing is also very sturdy and even. Lots of sweet pitted fruit notes inthe aroma. Raisons, plu\ms, apricots, along with butter, rum, and spices. Very interesting. Flaovr is sweet and spicy. Buttery, and of apricots, melons and the ABV is quite noticeable. Light and soft feel, the carbonation is soft but fine and lends to the smooth feel. Slight alcohol tingle on the way down. Nice.

HDane (82) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Golden orange, no head. Nose of apple, some banana, a spice that seems reminiscent of licorice, and yeast. Flavor is spice, yeast up front, with a bit of the aforementioned fruit in the back. Slightly carbonated, with a light to medium body.

3.3
OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2006
22oz bottle pours amber without much head at all. Aromas of light apple, and a touch of toffee. Flavor is apple, candi sugar, spice, and some yeast and bannana. Medium body and not much carbonation. Fair but nothing great..

Arayaga2 (2221) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Orange brown beer (a bit dark for a tripel) with minimal white head. It has an aroma of a bubblegum, and taste is lightly fruity and not too sweet/bitter/anything. Nice bit of spice and some residual tannic taste, with a very slight out-of style caramel edge. All told, a pleasant beverage at $5/22oz

ABUSEDGOAT (2852) - California, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Clear orange body with no head or lacing. Aroma is very fruit with other notes of sugar, pepper, spices, vague hints of yeast. Flavor is very fruity but the mouthfeel is ’off.’ Quite a bit of alcohol there too. Definitely not worthy of having a waxed top. At least it shows a lot of potential.

3.6
Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2006
Robe orangée très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche jaunâtre qui s’estompe. Arômes d’oranges, d’épices et d’alcool. Saveurs de bananes, de levure, de malt caramel, d’alcool, d’épices et de cerises.

jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Clear amber color with relatively no head after 30 seconds. Aroma is mild of yeast, taste is a pleasant blend of spices, malt, fruity, and malt. Not a bad tripel, but not one to seek out.

Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2006
Nice amber color, not much of a head, warming, somewhat of a triple flavor, but something was missing, it was ok, drinkable, but some flavor was missing.

JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours a light gold color. Thin white head that quickly disappears. Very little carbonation. Light fruit and belguim yeast aroma. Tastes of fruit, belguim yeast, and spices. Does a very good job of covering that 10% abv. Very warming, but a sub-par trippel. Good compared to some, but not great for the style.

3.5
Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Sweet aroma, with caramel hints. Orangey caramel color with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly. This one sticks around a bit. Lots of sweetness, with banana aftertaste. Almost no hoppiness to speak of.
