Served on-tap at the brewpub. A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a small film of white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving no lace at all down the glass. S - Smells of candied sugar, fruity belgian yeast, citric fruit, light spice and some green apples. There is quite a bit of alcohol burn on the nose once it warms up. T - Starts off with a ton of sugary sweetness slowly giving way to hints of citric fruit, green apples, belgian yeast and some dulled spice. Quite a bit of alcohol comes through as it warms up. Finish is pretty sweet, lingering for some time after consumption. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, soft feel with quite a bit of residual sweetness clinging to the pallet long after consumption. O - I have had this one quite a few times before and it was much better than this score would indicate. I will have to revisit this one in the future and give it another chance.

Draft. Pours cloudy, pale yellow with thin, creamy white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is yeast, spice, cloves, banana bread, and wheat. Flavor is yeast heavy, average cookie malt, light grassy hops, and light fruit esters; sweet, malty finish. Medium body and carbonation with high warmth.

bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2011
On draft at the Pub: Translucent and golden with minimal head. Flavor was fruity pineapple and cinnamin and some yeasty spices. A really nicely smooth dessert with the the chocolate stout ice cream.

Bursting with fruit and spices, light bitterness on finish. Heavier wheat notes then your typical Belgian triple, matt, you would like this and damn it for being a triple.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice golden color with a large white head and a good dose of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings some pepper, spice, candied sugar, light malt, and some booze. The taste brings forward more of the spice and some light fruits. Nice mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol and spice. Not the best version of the style, but it certainly gets the job done and is a good representation. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-24-2010

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Oh my god! This is the nectar from the gods. They only let you have three during one sitting which isnt to say you cant have anything else afterwards.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Pale straw-golden pour. No head. The nose is a little bit honeyish with a light kiss of mintiness and lean Belgian malt. Softly spicy phenolics (although the suspended yeast lends this a doughy breadiness that definitely shouldnt be there). A little bit of banana-like fruitiness and lingering cooling minty character. Long dry spicy finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2010
In short: A basic sugary tripel. Just ok.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body toped by a white ring of foam
In long: Nose of typical basic triple with fruity yeast esters and sweetness. Taste has the usual fruits found in basic example of the style (bananas, pineapples, apples, etc.). But the beer was just too bare-bone, lacked hops and the candi sugar was just too apparent. Strong white sugar sensation. Nothing offensive but below average for the style. The only beer I did not enjoy at Selins Grove. I think Im gonna on and assume that this beer was just a glitch in The Matrix.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet malts, candy sugar, tropical fruits and spicy Belgian yeast. Flavor of sweet candi sugar, apples, spicy Belgian yeast notes and tropical fruits.
