COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three distinct Trappist yeasts – one earthy, one fruity, and one spicy – combine to produce the unique personality of this Belgian-style pale ale. Zesty hops, gentle malts, and a few vanilla beans provide a crisp, smooth profile, while the trio of yeast strains ferment the beer into an elegant harmony of flavors. From chaos, comes Trifecta.

Pours cloudy amber with a thick off white head. Smells strongly of spices with a hint of vanilla. Tastes different than I expected. The vanilla is disappointingly subtle. The strongest flavor is spice with some bitterness. Mouthfeel-Crisp and slightly carbonated. Overall-Decent beer. I had hoped for more vanilla.

Pounder can via PUB’R. Hazy golden pour toward copper. Nose was hops, pale malt, florals, mild vanilla, some red fruit. I got some berry notes in this, in addition to the hops. Solid beer.

16oz can, split over dinner. This smells great, with the malt sweetness, Belgian yeast, and vanilla all balanced really well together. The flavor is good, although it got a bit too sweet for me as it warmed up. It reminded me of some of the big Belgian-style beers I’ve had from Three Floyds. Interesting.
