RATINGS: 43   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.34/5   SEASONAL: Special   IBU: 27   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
Previously known as "Unnamed Triple". A golden hue and malty body thinned a bit by the 8% abv. In the background is a light handed kettle addition of fresh sliced ginger root. Entertaining suggestions: pair with some flavor packed fruits such as thin mango slices and fresh peeled pineapple wedges. Try an unusual food pairing of a Chinese shrimp lo mein dish. The ginger complements the shrimp and noodles while the 8% abv will refresh your palette.

Pours deep golden with head. Smells pleasant ginger yeasty. ABove average mouthfeel and carbonation. Ginger snap, bold ginger flavour, with yeast cushioning the finish. Good flavour though not overtly drinkable or complex.

650 ml bottle. From Brooklyn, NY. Courtesy of Brandman.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with dense white creamy head. Belgian yeast, wheat and rubber in aroma. Flavour is very much wheat beer like. Belgian yeast, mild bitterness, rubber, I guess this needs those mentioned fruits and shrimps. I couldn’t find the ginger. Mild spices in aftertaste.

AirForceHops (7296) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2012
22 oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors’. Used a pint. Cloudy gold in color with sizable soapy type head. Nose is lots of fruit esters. Lots of fruit with sweet malt. Ginger is an afterthought and not real noticeable until it got real warm. Maybe I have been hit with the “power of suggestion” Because I taste mango. A decent wheat/ yeast body. Little bit of sugar. Not a traditional Tripple however, I enjoyed this. A good summer quencher. ABV is not detectable at all.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Pours a mildly hazy, but mostly clear golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet crystal malt and ginger with some mild Belgian yeastiness. Body starts lightly sweet with some biscuity notes and caramel toffee sugars along with a tough of doughy yeast and crystalized ginger spice before a drier, bitter peppery finish. Also has some light fruity esters throughout. A decently made triple but could use a little more complexity, balance and smoothness.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Murky golden color/ fleeting head. Light fruit aromas with belg yeast, perfume, marshmallow. medium body. Soft fruity, earthy flavors of apricots, peaches, toasted marshmallow, cooked ginger, pale malt. Very easy drinking, hit the spot.

Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Well-bodied, overly beefy pour for a triple (poor spelling there, Rock Art). This has a super, American fruit-salad-at-the-all-you-can-buffet kinda appeal ... overpoweringly sweet, syrupy and (did I say?) sweet. Not loving it. (#6160, 3/29/2016)

ben4321 (6535) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/23/12

Aroma: The nose has some honey, a decent amount of yeast, and quite bit of spice
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy gold-orange color with a small white head and light lacing
Flavor: The taste is rather sweet as well, with a big spice presence, and minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a soft carbonation, and a rather sticky feel on the mouth
Overall Impression: This was a decent, though heavily sweet, example of a Tripel. It wasn’t a favorite for me, but it was a decent one.
