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

ABUSEDGOAT (2729) - 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.

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 (3592) - 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 (1686) - 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 (5545) - 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.

3.2
trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 26, 2006
This is missing something. Clear amber pour. No matter how hard I tried, I could not coax a head out of this beer. Aroma is spicy and malty, but weak. Taste was musty yeast, spice, and lots of alcohol. Thick mouthfeel with a sticky finish. Good, but there are much better tripels out there.

3.3
Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a medium fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate spicy citrus and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a heavy bitter sweet alcohol finish of moderate duration. Interesting but not a standout brew.

2.8
bp (922) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Pours a cloudy orange with a thin head, I agree with others when they say there is little aroma from this beer, slightly spicy aftertaste, hides the alcohol well but overall a very average brew
