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

An orange beer with no head. The aroma is primarily of alcohol, but also has some spicy notes. The flavor is very sweet - and very simple - it is of alcohol and coriander, that gives it a dry burning end. Too simple for me - maybe a couple of years of cellaring would do it good?

On tap at the Toronado. Clear dark copper colour with thin light beige head. Strong carmel malt nose. Strong carmel malt taste with warming alcohol finish.

Copper color with not much head. Huge alcohol aroma. Fruity alcohol taste that was reminiscent of peaches.

DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Pours deep copper with aroma of floral spices, yeasty esters, and some vinous hops. Tastes bready malty, fruity, hoppy, candi sugary, citrusy. The finish gets a bit cloying, and the balance could use some work, but this one isn’t bad.

Pretty! Like a cat’s eye stone! Smells goooooood. Tastes like summer nights on a wraparound porch!

On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Deep amber colour with a thick white head. Sweet and vineous aroma with a bit of yeasty spiciness. Not a terribly complex aroma. Pale malt and sweet vineous flavour. Finishes a little spicy and hot. The body on this needs to come way down to be a triple. Tends to cloyingness.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Bottle: Near coppery hue with a fading fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has major fruity esters of apple, pear, and apricot on top of sweet belgian sugar and caramel malting. Additionally I got some clove and juniper berry as well as moderate phenols on the nose. The taste starts with a heavy malty approach supported by a nice dose of ripened fruit. Some acidic notes midesection finshed with a peppery and woody finish. The feel is sharp but a bit coy too. Good but not great beer. Does show signs of a brew that could take to a year or two of aging to mellow out rough edges.

I must say that this had a really weird plastic top on it, like fake wax plastic. Reddish glow, semi transparent with no head i could see. Lots of bannanas and yest in the aroma. Very carbonated up front with some lemon thing going on, but the real deal here is fresh baked bannana bread, this tasted just like a big ol mouthful, slight burnt bitterness at the end. Solid.

Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 12, 2005
I enjoyed this tripel who is with me.......crickets........Ah well anyway a sunkist soda aroma with a hint of lemon and perfume. A dark orange appearance with excellent lacing. The flavor was very earthy with a doughy presence. I get a good deal of bananas and oranges. It blended well. A different take on the style but good nonetheless.

2.8
0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled. Clear, reddish amber body with a white ring for a head. Aroma of clove, fruits (banana, prune, raisin), caramel, alcohol and over all is earthy and coying. Body is medium to light with soft coarse carbonation and lightly dry. Flavor is yeasty sour, fruity (prune, plumb), lightly bitter clove with banana, caramel and noticable alcoholic warmth and flavor. Too much. Unbalanced and rather unpleasant; harsh. A headache in a bottle.
