COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t let Tripel’s light color and delicate aroma fool you, this is one serious beer brewed with maximum effort. First, we introduce freshest barley to crystal filtered water. Second, we add the best hops shipped directly for Europe. Third, our special yeast is the catalyst for fermentation, gobbling sugar and creating alcohol as it works. Some say that the Belgian monks who first brewed this style called it triple to denoted its high alcohol content. Still others believe triple’s origins lay in its triple fermentation; twice in the brewery and once in the bottle. Whatever the answer, ours is the Tripel threat.

Nice to look at with a clear golden color. One finger of decent head. Slight haze, but mostly clear. Kicks with a strong, spicy Belgian smell. Strong alcohol scent. It’s pretty clear this baby has a ton of alcohol. Oh well, I’ll try it anyway. The smell is quite pungent. It’s got a very harsh flavor. Serious serious bite. Has the Belgiany taste but with a major afterbite and serious alcohol (liquor-ish) presence. Much easier as it warms up. A decent thickness but with a bubbly, fizzy champagne feel. Makes the alcohol just slightly harder to slug down. It’s very strong, hardcore. Hurts just a bit on the way down. All in all, though, a fine brew. Just not for all-night drinkin’.

Bottle. Yellow-orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is yeast and alcohol. Taste is caramel, yeast, hop, and booze. Nice tripel.

beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
Clear golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of honey and hops. Flavor of honey and hops with bitterness in the end. The body is light and creamy while the carbonation is medium. Not bad, but doesn’t feel belgian.

jimhilt (2641) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Pours a two finger off-white head that faded quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Clear light amber color with floaties. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light caramel nose. Flavor is caramel and hops nicely balanced, hints of the higher ABV. $6.49 for a 22oz bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

slayer02348 (103) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours out a clear yellow with a small white head. Light citrus aroma that is a bit funky. The taste isn’t at all what I expected and the alcohol is very noticeable. Other than that it had some spices present in the taste and a tiny bit of hoppyness.

The aroma is lacking, the taste is lacking. I got a slightly skunky aroma, so maybe its an old bottle. What aromas do come through, some spice, coriander. Taste is similar, some citrus, yeasty, some general malt too. Unimpressive for the style.

bottle courtesy of cletus. pours a nice slightly fuzzy orange with a 1 finger white, thick, creamy head. very sweet malty nose, with some doughy notes. flavor is decent, seems more like a euro strong lager with the sweetness and all. leaves a heavy surypy sweety after taste.
