22 oz bottle. Tripels are odd beers. This one has a cool label though. This one pours an a rich orange, medium white head. Aroma of fruit, apricot, wheat and mild dust. Belgian yeast dominates. Flavor is mildly sweet with a touch of alcohol. Belgian sugar, lots of fruit, a touch astringent. Some clove and honey notes. Mild and subdued bread notes. Medium body, light carbonation. Some alcohol towards the finish. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body under a small fizzy white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is thick and heavy pale malts with a slight perfume like note and some light yeast fruitiness. The flavor is a bit heavy on the palate, overly sweet for my tastes in the style, and lacking in complexity. The malt is so heavy and sweet that the yeast really doesn’t get a chance to shine which is what I want to see in a Tripel. Mouthfeel is thick and clingy with fizzy carbonation. No softness to it at all, it just kinda sits heavy on the tongue. Not terrible, but not what I look for in the style. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours light orange gold with a foamy white head - but not much of a head. Aroma is lightly cooked caramel with some yeast/spice notes. There’s more than that, but hard to describe. Full bodied. There’s a lot of yeast/spice, but also there seems to be a lot of noble hop - not grass - more herb. The alcohol is detectable - seems to make figuring out the flavors difficult. Otherwise it’s ok. Finally it seems to go into light pitted fruit, kandi, and yeast/spice. Ending moderately peppery with all the other stuff. Extremely enjoyable.

2011+ bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours with a very clear, small particle infused golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are of lemon zest, floral, medium malt character. Somewhat strong yeast that has a distinct musty note. Flavors are zesty, lightly malty, medium esters with some crushed black pepper. Low phenols. Medium bubbles, dry and light bodied, even for a tripel. MercyDevice (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Orange-y gold in color, with a medium-sized head. Medium hoppiness. Has some light spice notes, as well as some citrus notes. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Always happy to try a new beer from Elysian.
The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of wheat, as well as some Belgian yeast notes and some orange citrus. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of orange citrus, as well as some wheat and biscuit malt, as well as a little bit of sugary sweetness and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. bth122 (1704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2012
