COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We started with a Trappist Triple yeast culture and carefully blended Belgian pale barley malt with traditional malted wheat and oats to produce a delectable golden ale. This special brew is aged 12 weeks creating a fruity and refined taste with a huge bouqet, light body, and a very smooth, non-bitter finish. Best served at 55 degrees F.

Light golden color with a frothy head. Aroma lighter than expected. Flavor of faint fruit with light body. Drinkable

relatively weak aroma for a belgian style. gold color, lightly fizzy. lots of malt and fruit in the flavor, very sweet but not quite cloying--i htink this would be an excellent dessert beer but it doesnt belong up in the ranks of some of the excellent tripels of the world.

bottle from bunkypop, Thanks. pours a cloudy dark yellow almost orange with a small residue of head ringing the glass. the aroma is a bit disturbing, yeasty sour grape aroma. but the taste is good. fruity might be an understatement for this one. very sweet dark raisin and plum, possible banana notes, yes, definite bana flavor is present. finish is a roasted flavor of malts and yeast. sweetness dominates this throughout, very smooth and drinkable but is a bit cloying.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Pours a deep amber color with a thin, fizzy, sustained white head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and spicy. Fairly light bodied, but wants to fizz up in my mouth. Kinda of an apple, pear, and spice (nutmeg?) flavoring. A tingling, but not bitter, fruit finish.

Reddish orange with a medium sized tan head. yeasty aroma of bananas and other fruits. Quite carbonated and sweet, overly so in my opinion with apples, bananas, and other fruits, with some spiciness. An ok trippel but a lttle too much on the sweet side for my tastes.

Pours a clear orange, small white head that leaves quickly. Aroma is fruity, and somewhat yeasty smellin .. Very carbonated, Flavor is very sweet, very sweet, then fading to bitter. Very full- mouthed taste to it. I am liking tripels more and more...

UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 My bottle was slightly more than 1 year old. The body was a very cloudy and murky amber. The head is medium and seems very heavy. The nose has ginger, nutmeg and bananas. The taste has bananas, apples and a little bit of black pepper. The finish has an alcohol burn. Thin mouthfeel with little complexity. I have had worse tripels.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Clear amber color, small white head that fades to nothing. Sweet aroma of wheat, pears, light banana, and watermelon. Flavor is very wheaty and pretty sweet with a peppery mix of fruit (apples, pears, candy watermelon). Rotting apples especially show up in the finish. The taste is ok... but Id still have to say its too sweet. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, and it leaves an alcohol burn in the belly.

No head whatsoever.Nice golden amber color with just a few streams of fizzies trailing up from the depths.I am having a hard time finding this Huge Bouqet they are talking about,musta left it in the bottle.It does have a slight floral scent not like a Real Belgian Tripel but not bad or anything.This actually has a nice fullness to it,not light or thin at all.The finish isnt very tasty, fads fast.

Malt aroma. Light red appearance. Flavor of sweet fruit. High abv is not noticeable in the taste. Lightly spiced. An ok effort but needs more balance and less sugar.
