Draft @ Union Station, Providence, R.I. Aroma is Belgian yeast, lemons, spices, with hints of bananas. The taste has light spices, dried fruit, lots of pale malt and light grains. Really nice yeast presence. Mild notes of candy sugar. None of the 9.5 % is found anywhere on my palate. This really surprised me for a John Harvard’s brew. Really damn tasty!

Cloudy orange color, light sugary aroma with a firm and fruity finish. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Not too bad, worth a try.

solid tripel, aroma breathes alcohol and caramelized sugars. flavor is bold with a strong alcohol note and some fruity flavor

Why wouldn’t they serve this beaut in proper glassware. you think a place as nice as this (union station, prov) would put the work in and make it official. decent tripel, not great, but i had no idea this was a john harvards company... ohh well, all in all not bad.

On tap at the Lake Grove brewpub on 9/14/07: Pours a transparent golden with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale biscuity Belgian malt with some coriander and clove spice. Body starts with some sweet malt and floral fruity esters toward a drier bready caramely finish. A pretty decent tripel, but could use a little more refinement.

Hazy golden, thin fine white head, sweet spicy banana aroma, big banana flavor with spicy notes hiding in the background, sweet without being too sweet, spices start to take over at the end, never really any clove (d good thing, imho)

On tap at the Wayne location and listed as the ’Les Trois Amis’. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of orange peels, spices, fruity (bananas), and some yeast. Tastes of fruitiness and lighter spices. Light alcohol finish. Some lacing left on the glass.

1 liter commemorative bottle. The pour here was gold, with minimla head and a lot of huge carbonation bubbles. The palate was rather weak in heft, and not very complex, with notes of fruit, some hopcitrus, and slight funk notes. JH has a way to go before they can compete with the Belgians in this style.
