COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In case you hadn’t heard, there’s going to be a bacon shortage next year, and guess who is to blame? That’s right, Famine, the third brother has ridden in on his black horse, bearing his scales and taken away your delicious pork treats. But as least as the droughts set in there will be some Famine to drink, not that it will help in the long run. Food for thought: For added irony, drink Famine during your various acts of holiday gluttony!

kirk36 (223) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Excellent dead-balls-on example of a triple. A bit more body than comes from a monastery. Horse-blanket forward, Belgian yeast all in the house! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a rocky white foamy head. Lace was messy and all over the place.
The aroma had some Belgian sugar, citrus pulp/lemon, light hay/grassiness, white pepper, light clove, banana and bubblegum.
The flavor was basically the same with a lingering aftertaste of the banana and bubblegum. Some hits in the finish with some dry chalkiness.
The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, decent tripel, I think I could see myself coming back to this one.

22oz bottle pours a hazy yellow with some clumpy, white head. Nose has some spice, pepper, some candy sugar, some lemon, some hay. Flavor is sweet, candy sugar, lemon, orange, some perfume. Chalky finish.

radagast83 (8533) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a solid wispy white head. Aroma was a nice citrus character, with plenty of light wheat notes. Flavor was citrus, lemon zest, not bad at all.

3.2
BeerandBlues2 (13872) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle shared by nimbleprop. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, cracker and biscuit malt with fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Travlr (26268) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle courtesy of nmannthevisuallychallenged, thanks! Murky pale yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of spiced white bread dough. Taste is white pepper, heavy spice, maybe coriander, and straw.

3.3
AirForceHops (7910) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Purchased @ One Stop Shop. Aroma shows hints of clove, light candy sugar and pale malt. Flavor starts with a sugary malt followed by Earthy hops and rounded out by thick yeast. Also, alcohol shows it face. The yeast is really thick giving a full mouthfeel. Certainly not bad, but not great even if you are a fan of the style. And I do enjoy the style.

3.1
jimhilt (2630) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Pale, murky amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nose is yeast, flavor is yeasty and light sweet orange peel. $8.49 for a 22oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

3.4
thornecb (6095) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a slightly hazed gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to coat surface leaving no lacing. Sweet yeast and lemon aromas. Dry and thin with upfront caramel, hay and toast turning to yeasty lemon before the lasting bitter pith finish.
