COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Similar to Belgian-style Strong Pales, the Tripel is often characterized by its lighter color, spicy aromatics, and complexity. Brother Davidís 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

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Wow. I am not sure what went wrong when most of you rated this beer but my wife and I absolutely loved this one. Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this fine brew poured a cloudy bronze color with a small white head. The aroma was strong and sugary with a faintly sour tangy and fruity finish. The flavor is strong sweet candi with nice ripe fruits and a yeasty middle. the finish is tangy sugars. I found the alcohol to be rather well disguised and found an enjoyable thick mouthfeel. I will definitely be tracking down this one again.

A great sipping beer-strong, complex combo of sweet/spicy. Long, long finish. A great bargain compared to Belgian ales. No more wax seal on bottles.

Taken on good word from Dave at HO10KB in New Kensington, PA They had it on tap so I tried that first and it was delicious. Lighter look than expected. Iced Tea color. Weak Iced Tea at that. STRONG flavor. Over the top Triple. Sweet, malty BOOZY goodness. One of the best Abbey style beers offered by an American brewery. An Abbey style beer that doesnít taste like someone just blended Chimay and Yuengling. What a delightful surprise. I had almost given up on American Belgians. Perfect yeasty, Belgian flavor. Would love to have them make a Quad. Honestly, I canít think of one other American brewery that has gotten it this right. Mouthfeel - not too carbonated. Just the right balance of syrup to ale. A TINY bit hot. Am planning on laying three down for a few years. Weíll see if they can last. Dear Anderson - PLEASE make a Quad!!

I was surprised to see how many people really didnít care for this beer. I loved it. Very lightly hazed, yellow body with moderate head and good lacing. The alcohol really drove its flavor into my nose, but it carried great notes of pepper and clove without leaving much sense of alcohol. The flavor and palate hit every note right, being a balance of aggressive and comforting flavors, rich and tingling mouthfeel, and more. Really good beer.

A bottle well-protected against oxidation by a vinyl (not wax) seal must count for something... a gentle pour uncovers tiny & constant sparkling effervescence throughout a honey-hazed amber body under a creamy, cream-colored head. Aroma finds smoky yeasts, like a nice Gouda with a plantain undertow and hints of maple. Alcohol concentration makes me say, "woooh"... flavors as rich as a Barleywine. Fruits and yeasts. I stop taking notes at this time by writing, "Forget Notes. Just Drink. This is Tops." There you go.

Awesome. Spiced tea leather honey and cereal aroma. Appearance is dark golden straw filtered. Taste is dry banana, cereal, nuts, bread, slight floral notes and honey with a hint of sour bark. Very full, malty mouthfeel with light golden grains on the tongue. Overall its wonderful, wild, yet tamed and well made and interpreted.
