COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Tripels are a testament to the skill of the brewer-monks who created them. Tripels play tricks on the senses—at first glance, they appear delicate and simple, but in reality, the golden color and mild appearance conceal a wealth of complex flavors. Ovila Abbey Tripel is our take on the classic style, with toasty malt sweetness balanced by reserved floral hop notes and complemented by a traditional Belgian abbey yeast. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

Maris (1588) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2017
From a 375ml bottle (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a clear golden with a medium head, The nose is light and a touch fruity with a bit of Belgian yeast. In the mouth, there’s bready malt, some sweet fruit, some spice and yeast, and a firmish bitterness. Fullish body, with soft carbonation. Pleasant enough, without being in any way inspiring.

Bottle shared near the end of an epic session. I’m pretty demanding for the style but that one is quite flavorful and drinkable. Decent stuff, would like to try some BA version.

willisread (3651) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle shared at AA. Thanks Eric! Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy, white head that lasts. Nice corriander and nutmeg nose with some star anise that lasts throughout. Sweet with some candy sugar on the palate. More spice, then a nice grassy, peppery bitter finish. Pretty good for an American tripel.

Dervock (1452) - AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle - pours orange with a small head. Aroma is malt, pears and alcohol esters. Taste is sweet and malty, doesn’t really go anywhere.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
I get sweet malts quickly taken away by an almost tart and then yeasty aromas in this pale orange slightly hazy brew with a nice head of fine white bubbles. Full bodied sweet light on the typical yeast flavor. The flavor ends in a slight bitterness and the warming of the alcohol and leaves a film on my tongue

Bottle. Belgian yeast, fruity-grainy malt, and light alcohol aroma. Clear copper with a small white head. Belgian yeast, banana, grainy malt, and light spice, and alcohol flavor. Body on the heavier side of medium, soft carbonation. Overall, a rather disappointing triple, but not a wreck either.

lliams (204) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2016
Solid tripel. Orange fruit, herbs and yeast on the nose continues on the palate. A bit of sweetness but nice and dry in the finish; moreish. Very sessionable beer for almost 9%, had to remind myself of that.

3.3
TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2015
(Bottle). Aroma is faint but mostly absent. Very thin head with no lacing. The flavor is well balanced and has nice Belgian yeast with some tropical fruit and peppery finish. Pretty tame by Belgian standards. The bottle is not dated. This is suggested since mine appears to have been fairly long on the shelf. Overall, a disappointment from this brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
