Our Tripel pours a hazy deep gold with a creamy head. Upfront aromas of fresh plums, orange, white flowers and a hint of hay evolve into aromas of caramel malt and cola as the glass warms. A very balanced flavor profile and a creamy mouthfeel lead into a light malt sweetness with a final transition into a hint of warming alcohol and soft drying bitterness.

574deadzone (1408) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a hearty hazy golden with a bout a finger of eggshell head that settles to a ring and leaves some soapy lace. Nose is fruit forward, citrus, orange marmalade and stone fruit, somewhat spicy, fairly floral. After reading the description, I agree with the plum and cola notes. Pretty sweet, fairly tart, somewhat bitter. Medium bodied, fairly active, tingly and bright, with a yeasty tart and bitter finish. Pretty nice tripel, strikes a nice balance all around, though it doesnt necessarily push it to the next level.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Interesting take on a tripel. Very strong saison-like flavor, with the addition of some tropical fruits. If this were labeled a saison I wouldn't have been surprised. Peppery etc. like a saison. Good Belgian yeast notes. Not carbonated highly, as is the American way it seems. Good. B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
