The hallmark of Belgian Triples are fruity esters balanced with a dry finish that fall in the range of 7-9% ABV. And for this years 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beersomething unusual considering our penchant for producing eccentric beers that defy styles or categories.

In excited anticipation of 20 years and the new brewery, we concocted this very traditional, yeast driven, dry and fruity Tripel.

Hop Variety: Bravo, Czech Saaz
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, Wheat, Oats

Bomber. Sweet, yeasty wheat aroma with banana notes. Pours bright golden yellow with a little bit of a white head. Good trippel with a strong wheat flavor to start with a sweet, smooth dry finish. Good, refreshing beer especially in the summer time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a vibrant glowing yellow liquid that had white tint as it looked similar to a wit style and as far as the head, there wasnt much development except an o-ring around the circumference of the pint glass. Aroma is mild with grassy hay like scent of grained barley malts but with just the right touch of Belgian Abbey tripel yeast that intrigues my interest in how it will taste. There is very subtle and almost bland except a minor spicy yeast flavor and a heavy presence of wheat. This is a pleasant and easily quaffable beer on a warm summer night but considering the fact that this was a one time only anniversary recipe it wont be a memorable beer like those other few recipes Avery created to celebrate other years.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottled April 2012.
Appearance: The body is a beautiful amber hue with sediment in the semi-clear body. The head is short with rather poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is clean and enticing with hints of banana, subtle spices and a touch of pear.
Taste: The intro is fruity right away reminding me of either an apple or a pear, quickly the flavor becomes chalky with light banana and slight spices. The finish becomes dry and a bit watery. Theres some off-flavors in here that remind me of water with a slight chemically flavor. Not digging this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Overall: Theres something off here, it reminds me of poor quality tap water. Not interested in this.

Scopey (14219) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle at Bruces, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is candy, spice, earth, hay, icing sugar, apricot and peach. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange, apricot, peach, spice, earth, pear drops, melon and sherbet with dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Hides abv pretty well. Ok, but nothing special.

DiarmaidBHK (4641) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours golden with an inch of,white foam. Big fruit and yeast notes on the nose. The yeast on the tongue is balanced with a nice hop finish which adds a touch of dryness. Very nice

MadRobin (2954) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle after cellaring for (oops, longer than intended) 8 months. Clear, yellow gold with a 3-finger off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of banana, grain, spice, yeast, light citrus and pineapple. Taste of grain, light citrus, tropical fruit, spice, yeast and mildly bitter earthy pine. Medium body and medium body and with a soft, pleasant mouthfeel. The unintentionally long cellaring certainly did no harm to this fine American example of a Belgian-style tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
