COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Initially only available on draft. Draft version brewed in Irvine, bottled version brewed in San Jose.

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.

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

hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Rated on 7-02-2015. The appearance of this bottled beer is a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminished, transparent golden body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma presents light floral hops, fruity, banana, spicy, sweet, light yeast, and caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, banana, yeasty, candy, sweet, spicy, boozy, caramel malt, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation, sticky and this beer is medium-full bodied. This is a good sipping beer with an excellent taste to it. The various flavors come together very well making this an enjoyable beer to drink and rate. It is worth trying and it is a beer that I would like to buy again.

Aroma is heavily spicy and malty. The flavor is spices, a hint of white bread, citrus, Belgian yeast, malts and a slightly dry/tangy finish.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation body hazy orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering candy aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of mild hops candy and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Sweet candi sugar and Belgian Trappist yeast aroma. Some banana esters, but not too overwhelming. Belgian yeast taste is very tame for a tripel but is balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours with a hazed golden orange body and a white head that fades. Aromas are strong of orange peel, orange blossom honey, rye, and spicy clove. Flavors are quite dry, grainy, a bit of booze. Some candi sugar. Lively and dry. A tasty triple.

500ml bottle from Binny’s Plainfield, #5458/6500. Pours a hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is florals fruits and orange peel with some hints of banana. A bit of a clove phenol with a light yeasty pepper, a light grass, a touch of candi sugar, and a somewhat grainy and bready pale malt backing. Flavor is similar. Floral fruits with some banana and pear as well as a light orange peel. Grainy, bready, lightly sweetened pale malts balance a light grass and pleasant yeasty pepper spice really well. A bit of a clove note, touches of candi sugar, and a light grass at the end as this finishes dry and spicy with just a touch of alcohol. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, lively, medium-high carbonation. Overall, I am generally not a tripel fan, but this one was done really well. Dry and spicy with a nice fruity essence while never getting too sweet or boozy. Really nice beer.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy dark gold with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (biscuit, meal, cereal), light hops (spicy), and average esters (apple, pear) with notes of alcohol and sugar. Flavor is moderate malt, mild hop bitterness with spicy alcohol and earthy notes. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry finish.
