COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest beer weve ever brewed at Blue Mountain, coming in at almost 12 percent alcohol by volume. But its also one of the lightest-colored brews weve ever created! Brewed solely with Pilsner and Vienna malts, and we used the same amount of barley it would take to make 1000 gallons and packed into just 500 gallons worth of the smoothest, fullest-bodied, strongest winter brew youve ever had. This lager defies most standard beer categorization (Germans would put it in the Doppelbock category), but were calling it a blonde Triplebock. The name says it all... It wont take many of these and a long winters nap will be all youre capable of doing.

ClubGonzo (5576) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 30, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a light amber body with a massive creamy-cloudy white head. Nose is nuts, biscuits, caramel, bread crusts and hints of brown sugar and straw. Taste is pale malts, nuts, caramel and hints of sugar and mild grainy notes. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Sort of like a crossover between a Belgian triple (without the obvious yeast tones) and a Helles Bock. Interesting, and not bad at all.

jgb9348 (5988) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2015
Clear, crisp copper coloured body with a golden glow and a very rich, four centimetre tall microfoamed tan head with a zillion small bubbles constantly rising from the bottom. Bright aroma of pit fruits, apricots, earth, yeast, curacao, caster sugar, alcohol and a bit of oak - definitely smells more of a belgian ale (and looks, too) than a doppelbock. Full-bodied; Rich, candy sugar flavour with a nice malt note, some apple and pear flavours, a touch of oak and dry flavours and a hint of cognac and whiskey on the finish as well. Aftertaste is rich and subtle at the same time with only a bit of the grain getting through, but tons of sugars, a good amount of fruit and a nice full complement of oak and dry tastes showing at the tail end. Overall, a nice beer with perhaps a mildish flavour, probably due to it being a lager, but a good robust beer with a nice character and a good description from the brewery itself. Not worth searching out for, but if the price is nice, not a bad beer to welcome Spring to. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Moms Organic Market in Alexandria (Mount Vernon Avenue), Virginia, a few blocks from home on the other side of the river/run for US$11,29 on 14-March-2015 sampled at home in Washington on 22-April-2015.
