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

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 The resonance on my palate from this brew lacks the real substance of a traditional abbey triple. It perhaps needs some time to develop, because it’s overwhelming sweetness flatens the perception of its taste. The taste is somewhat abbrasive, however there are clever tones of caramel and honey. All together it lacks the balance this style requires.

Nice to try, flavors too strong, won’t get again. I see the double is very highly rated, so I will have to try that next.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Smell of butter, cream and a little banana. Not much foam. Flavours of pineapple, banana, peaches, orange peel. A little ginger. Could have slightly more bitterness, and less sweetness.

Samuel214 (878) - SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2016
Flaska från SB, provning med ölsällskapet. Ca 2 år gammal. Klar, guldfärgad med litet vitt skum. Lite söt och kryddig doft av honung, bröd, sirap. Kroppen är nästan slät, mediumstor och lagt sig lite av lagring. Sötma i smaken med lite stickande alkoholtoner, honung och bröddeg. Bitter avslutning. Inte gjort sig väl av lagringen. Känns lite avslagen. Mja...

Flaske 33 cl. Gylden orange med et svagt hvidt hoved. Aroma: Orange, honning og koriander og andre krydderier. Smag: Krydderier, honning, gær og frugt. En meget velsmagende triple. Ps.: Må andre også få denne dejlige smagsoplevelse.

Flaske 12 fl, en ganske udmærket triple, med sin gode aroma og jævnt kraftige smag, kommer denne triple op over middel, den ser også flot ud i glasset og har en lang eftersmag som er let bitter/ sur, som også bliver let sprittet.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 Bottle 355ml. Deep yellow, small white head, little carbonation. Aroma is sweetish, peaches, malts. The taste is mildly sweet with a bitter undertone. Lots of fruits: peaches, grapefruit, etc. The aftertaste leaves you with a warm glow of alcohol and bitterness.

voyageurmike (357) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2016
Dark orange yellow with slight white head, full-bodied. Boozy and slightly fruity aroma. Peach sweetness to the taste fades as the beer warms, leading to more sourness and bitter aftertaste. Not a real Abbey tripel, just an OK beer.

Poured at home in a snifter. Rusty orange in color with a small head for a triple. Fruity aroma with apples, pears, peaches, candied sugars, and biscuit. Taste is as fruity as aroma, biscuit, candied sugars. Meium light carb, light mouthfeel.
