Bottle. Celebrating my 23rd Anniversary on the job with a Nineteenth Anniversary beer. Pours with a fizzy appeal ... the carbonation settles into an interesting island in the middle of the beer. This drinks with a full-on Belgian bearing, fruity and creamy ... mellow pineapple, red apple, yeast. This is some delicious stuff.

Hazy light golden with a persistant white fluffy head. Lovely sweet abbey aroma of hay, sweet earthy cereal, a light herbal tone like lavender or basil or something...just really nice. Flavor was the same, sweet and pale-malty with a nice Belgo yeast spiciness paired with some sort of perfumy herbal action, without being too bitter, with hay and lavender notes. Really tasty. Not very dry...not a complaint, but not what I was expecting. Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz Bottle. Aroma is pretty mellow, but has fruit, spice, and yeast to it. The taste is of heavy yeast with some spice, a bit of fruit (some peach, banana, some others I can’t really tell) along with some notable pepper and again...yeast! A good, well bodied beer with a solid mouthfeel and a great finish. Smooth, carbonated and to the point. This is absolutely up there with the rest of Avery’s best! 8.2% abv.

This an excellent tripe,. Looks and smells light. The flavor is simple but easy to drink and tasty. Nothing out of the ordinary but done well. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 24, 2012
For my third anniversary on this here website. Bomber, bottled in April 2012. Pours cloudy gold with a large white lacy head with good retention. Aroma consists of doughy bread, clove, tart berries, earth. Taste starts out lightly sweet, turns sour, then finishes bitter. Much more bitter and hoppy than most Belgian examples. Flavor is a bit fruity (apples?). A really nice tripel with an American bent. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2012
A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of some citrus hops, sweet bready and grainy malts, Belgian yeast, coriander and other spices, and lemon zest.
T - Starts off with a mix of citrus hops, some light bitterness, some sweet grainy malts, some lemon zest, and coriander. Through the middle, some more Belgian yeast comes through with some more spices, and a bit of farmhouse flavor. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts, Belgian yeast, spices, fruity esters, and lemon zest.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, spicy, and estery finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced Tripel. Very smooth. seymour (1985) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Tasted on tap in a fluted tulip at Three Kings, thanks Brett! It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with thick, creamy, long lasting white foam and lace. Grainy, reminiscent of crackers and freshly baked French bread, tart and fruity, faint noble hops balance, with strong Belgian yeast notes: fruity, spicy, peppery. Despite the light colour, there were nonetheless subtle and complex malty and caramelly notes. I swear even hints of Brett, reminiscent of Goose Island Matilda or a well-aged Orval. Tart and slightly barn-yardy. Light body, strong carbonation, dry finish, highly "digestive." Really delicious. superspak (5500) - Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2012
22 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled in April 2012. Pours hazy golden amber color with a small 1 finger foamy white head with poor retention, that reduces to nearly nothing. Small specks of lacing, and a small amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, banana, clove, pear, apple, pepper, grass, bread, bubblegum, herbal, earth, candi sugar, wheat, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good strength, balance, and complexity. Taste of lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, herbal, earth, wheat, bread, pepper, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of banana, lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, earth, wheat, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and complexity of flavors; no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel! Great flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one.
