COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Triple Lindy...is that hard?" "It’s impossible!"

Our new Belgian-style Tripel ale made with a complex blend of malts and 100% real sugar. Pilsner-like in body and appearance, with layers of crisp malt, candy, and a balanced hop finish. This Belgian-style ale was aged in Apple Brandy, Bourbon, and Rye Whiskey barrels and then blended together. The sharpness of the Belgian yeast we used is smoothed out greatly by the time spent in barrels.

Dégustée en compagnie d’Alexandre. Désolé pour ce sombre cadeau de fête mec. Look ordinaire de tripel, peut-être un peu plus ambré que la tripel coutumière, mais sans rien de plus. Mousse presque absente, look huileux. Un nez des plus ordinaires pour une bière d’une brasserie qui ne propose habituellement jamais rien d’ordinaire. Dominance de Brandy, de pomme rouge, de baril ayant contenu de l’alcool et de levures belges. Comme c’est ordinaire. En bouche le liquide est huileux, moyennement effervescent, très très mielleux, ponctué par une touche brettée mal définie et décousue. Je m’attendais, avec un tel nom et une telle description y retrouver la complexité d’un triple barils. Je ne suis que dans le brandy et la levure belge. Le drain a également trouvé cette bière très ordinaire.

22oz bottle in a tulip on my 30th thanks to Reynolds. Pours brown/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, strong malts, a little oak, some booze from the barrels, and some light fruit notes. Flavor the same. Average texture. Might not be remembering this correctly, but I don’t think it was bad, but not great compared to all of the other bottles opened that night.

Bomber poured a clear tarnished gold with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, bourbon, apple, rye, oak, fruitiness and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, rye, bourbon, oak and light fruitiness with a smooth lingering bourbon finish.

Really nice nose, fruity and malty. Interesting. Muddled. Boozy finish, phenolic finish. Ok.

Slightly boozy. Lots of oak and apricot but not sweet. Thick but still fizzy. Heavy beer

Poured a cloudy peach color with Roman of light fruit, yeast banana, and booze. Flavors are light fruit and banana up front with so excited yeast and a nice mix if bourbon and brandy all at once. The barrel treatment wasn’t overpowering but just enough to make it worth while.

Bottle thanks to Adam. Pours a hazy gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is apple skin, honey, booze. Medium mouth with nice belgian sugar, citrus, easy to drink hides the alcohol well, very nice.

Bottle shared by someone. Pours slightly hazy dark golden color with white head. Fruity aroma with brandy, bourbon, Belgian yeast, and some oak. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation.

First and foremost is that this still very much carries on the Abbey style with yeast driven notes. Moderately fruity, spicy, and boozy. The apple brandy is there as is the whiskey but are more for depth than a major component of the flavor profile. Rye whiskey? Never would have guess that... and it really is not needed IMO. Faint oak on the finish. As it warmed a bit of meaty smoke comes out on the nose and I like it! Overall this is a nicely complex Abbey Tripel. I dig it.

Bottle... Pours hazy and peach-colored with a short-lived, white head. This smells mostly like an ordinary tripel, but I am also able to pull a subtle liquor-barrel component from the glass. The characteristics seem more akin to bourbon than apple brandy. There is also an odd, underlying, beefy facet to the nose. Full-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. I can’t actually taste much other than the apple brandy here. Not boozy-hot or even all that warming. Tangy finish. Not a whole lot going on here. I don’t love tripels.
