COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Trappist tradition comes to Manayunk with the first in a series of Belgian inspired ales. This strong, golden colored ale is brewed with pilsner malt and noble hops, but it is our unique Belgian strain of yeast that provides the complex aromas of fruit and spice. With a dry finish and relatively light body, you will find our Belgian Tripel very drinkable for a beer this potent. 10 oz servings only.
L’Chouffe yeast used. Doug’s from Iron Hill’s first beer at Manayunk.

I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours a hazy orange with a white head and lacing. The aroma is orange and dark fruit. The taste is orange, dark fruit, cherry, bread, and spice. The alcohol comes through a bit. There’s nice carbonation. This is pretty good.

12oz can poured into the wacky Engelszell glass. Clear, gets hazy at the end, golden color. Thick, foamy head builds a top and fades into a sticky lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet (Belgian candy), light esters (very restrained banana), lightly airy yeastiness, and dough from the malts. There is an additional interesting fruity sugar light character that’s very appealing. Flavor loses all that ester and has an understandable Belgian sweetness and a strong earthy bitterness. Doesn’t seem like hops. Also, not sticky, big but not BIG. This is the third or fourth time I bough this beer and finally getting to rate it. I think it’s a damn good take for an American brewery.

12 oz poured into a tulip glass. Orange golden with white head, full bodied with light carbonation. Tart citrus aroma and peppery mango flavor, with the spice lingering. Very nice.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange copper with medium creamy white head that lasts. The aroma is pure sugar, yeast, fruity malt. Medium mouth, similar flavors to nose, very boozy finish, decent.

Can. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and fruit. Flavor was lightly sweet with yeast, caramel, bread, and some fruitiness.

Murky, muddy sunflower yellow. Tons and tons of apricot in the nose, sickly sweet. Tangelo, band aids, baby food. Flavor is at once both sweet and bitter -- orange, pear and honey sugars battling intense, massive lingering bitterness. Moderate alcohol warmth. Not at all pleasant.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky orange with a a minimal white head. The aroma is full of hops and malt with some citrus tossed in. The flavor is big on citrus with hops. This is a really good beer and it hides the ABV extremely well.

They call this a triple but it's not overpowering. Very tasty. I enjoyed this beer immensely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a semi-hazy glossy orange color with less than a finger’s worth of white foaminess. Lacing concaves nicely along the sides. The smell starts off with an iced apple to sweet citrus. Light mango, pineapple opens up once it warms. Belgian spices show their presence nicely. The taste is well balanced between the spice and the sweet and also leads into the aftertaste nicely. The finish is semi-sweet but barely there. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seems slightly under, but the spices seem to take care of the slight lack. Belgian sweet stickiness rolls over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Tripel that I would have again.
