COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 3rd beer in the monastic series. This tripel represents all the elegance of Belgium’s influence upon the beer world. Think of the malt as the canvas and the Belgian yeast as the artist. Notes of banana and pear float off the soft white head derived from high quality pilsner malt. As the beer warms notice the spiciness that this beautiful yeast imparts into the beer. A light dosing of Tettnager hops adds a slight bitterness which helps keep the sweetness of this beer at levels of pure enjoyment. At first glance, this is a simple beer with no specialty malts and little hops used. Then take a sip. This isn’t white wine, this isn’t an IPA. This is a showcase of beauty in a glass, and proof that beer is earth’s greatest beverage.

Smells like yeast and a bit of banana, like a hefeweizen. Taste is banana, Belgian yeast, malt, and mild hops. Medium body, medium carbonation, and some foam.

on draft at the brewery, a decent triple. The mouthfeel on the thick side and yeast esters are almost spot on, Its the booziness that makes it difficult for me to finish the sample, its just not my style, not a bad reflection of the style.

3.3
Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
A golden ale with a thin creamy lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with herbaceous character, light coriander and curacao, light fusel notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with candy sugar, herbaceous character, grassy hops, light mineral notes, coriander and curacao, alcohol warmth, pleasant if a bit too grassy for me.

Tmoney99 (14501) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Draft. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex yeast and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy yeast sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a refreshing solid beer.

kevinator (2238) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Average beer. Slight malty and yeasty nose. Pretty dark copper color. Medium weight palate with a wine feel to it. Flavor was slightly sweet and alcoholic malt. Main issue was that the Belgian character did not stand out. Overall, just OK.

3.4
deyholla (11609) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Growler thanks to Josh! Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has earthy grain and a bit of sweetness that is backed by some earthy fruits. Flavor has lots of earthy sweet grain with a bit of bread and a yeast note.

4.3
JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2014
Vibrant orange pour with average white head. Aroma of citrus and very mild spice. Flavor is super smooth, citrus driven and slightly lemony. Very awesome.
