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. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Amber Coloring. White Head. Hops. Fruit.
Not too bad of a taste....Had better Abbey Tripel styles though. igneous1 (1538) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2004
deep golden color, head is beige and lasting. aroma is very caramelly and buttery, not true to style, but still nice. flavor is virtually the same with a bit of fruitiness...the alcohol is basically completely hidden. quite sweet...and numbing to the tongue. if i’m rating it on it’s trueness to style, i’m deducting points...but i don’t rate that way. belgianhomebrew (645) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2004
Slight fruit aroma. Body is a combination and bread and yeast with a touch of fruitiness. A very interesting brew. jsquire (4665) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2004
Deep golden color with a whispy white head. Candi sugar nose with some yeast notes. Honey sweetness with with some white wine and yeast flavors. Not very interesting for a triple.

Sweet, bready, cake, honey, pear, banana nose. Copper peach hue. Small sticky white head, which leaves nice rings of lace. Very sweet, bubblegum, cider, all sugar, slight yeat, nice mouthfeel, but compleely lacking balance. Not something I'd ever drink again. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2004
This was an interesting and slightly unique take on a trippel style. Lots of herbal astrigent aromas, that follow into the taste. Pours a grainy golden color with a puffy white head. Some light fruits, with some bubblegum toffee flavors but overall not to bad, but not something I would seek out again. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2004
This is a very strange example of the style, and I'm not sure if it's good or not. Not bad as a beer, but not great as a tripel. Odd, for sure. balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 17, 2004
pours a transparent amber color with a thin white head. strong malt, grassy, and licorice aromas. fruity flavors (dates and plums) malty, sweet with the alcohol very apparent. light body with dry finish. a bit too sweet for me unfortunately...need to try some other abbey triple's to compare. badgerben (5373) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Tap at Sprecher's tasting room. Nice golden color, lots of white head. Some hops and fruit comes through in the taste. Definitely not an Abbey Tripel to style, but I found it tasty as I have found others to be swamped in yeast.
