5/23/2008: Kerberos Tripel pours a fair golden wheat color with a thi and frothy white to off-white head. There is a slight haze and a very generous level of lively carbonation. The aroma is lightly sweet, fruity, and malty with some floral, spicy, and muted bubblegum characteristics as well. The flavor is sweet and fruity on the palate at first. Some cotton candy comes through mid-palate and then it turns fruity (apple, peach?) toward the slightly spicy finish. There is a twinge of floral hop presence in the finish, but that’s about it. Overall this beer leans heavily toward the sweeter side as a pretty large amount of wheaty malt is evident. There is also some clover honey and clove spiciness to help add some character to this beer. The alcohol is quite hidden. This beer has a medium to medium-full body and offers a sticky, moderately syrupy mouthfeel. Actually, this is not bad at all. It might not be completely traditional as far as Belgian Tripels go, but it is a tasty derivation from the norm and hits the spot at this particular point in time!
12 fl. oz. bottle (8.5% Alc/Vol, IBU: 27) from The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Rating #14 for this beer...
Light golden color with a modest off-white, fairly bubbly, head that diminishes fairly quickly. Heavy wheat aromas, mild yeast and floral components as well. Hints of bubblegum and a dash of spice (cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg) in the nose also. Sweet flavors form the start. Light malt, wheat and honey stick to the palate. Mild has a touch of light fruit. Finish has a note of citrus and wisps of alcohol. This is a bit sticky and thick for my kind of tripel, but on par with many Belgian Strong Blondes and even some tripels. Not a bad effort. jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2008
bottle. Not that bad. This brewery has sunk into the oblivion, but this is a nice peppery tripel which was much better than its overall site rating suggested. LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Ugh! What a terrible tripel. I wasn’t expecting much to begin with but this was almost a drainpour. Aroma was weak and hard to fing. Some bread, yeast and grain. Pour was a flat medium gold with no head. Taste was very sticky, yet thin. Not much flavor in the front, but then apple, sugar and coriander comes up in the aftertaste. Little to no carbonation. Terrible. 3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle sample is clear and filtered yellow. Semi-sweet and spicy nose of apple syrup and candy sugar, bright and crisp on the palate, then soapy with a touch of alcohol and perfumed coriander and hibiscus flowers. Passable.

Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured clear orange color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeasty, citrus & spice aroma. Medium body. Medium yeasty sweet flavor with a medium sweet and small alcohol finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew. BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Great lacing, apricot color. Vanilla, bananas nose. Yeast, vanilla, good but not great, Should be better then a 2.9 average. Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Clear yellow orange pour with medium to large white head. Pilsner malt aroma, some lime like citrus, herbal hop notes, some wierd mild stink, some faint vanilla. Spicy, herbal flavors collide with clove and vanilla in an overly sweet mess. Finishes grassy with more clove and vanilla. Alcohol is very pronounced. Overall this is pretty gross.

Mildly sweet semi soapy tripely aroma. Clear gold with very white foam and decent lacing. Prominent pilsener malt taste comes through. There’s a good deal of substance here, with a slightly grassy hop edge. Hangover (1141) - oxford, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Cloudy orange pour with a very thin filmy head. Aroma is sweet, malty and has some yeast, honey and apple. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but there is some upfront warming from the alcohol. Taste is sugary sweet with some yeasty esters towards the back end. Not a whole lot going on here to be honest. I love this brewery so it’s all good though.
