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.

From a 12 oz bottle poured in a tulip. Extremely sweet candy aroma. Sweet light bubblegum flavor with yeast and wheat flavor. More of a sweet wheat ale than a true triple. Clean slightly yeasty finish. Does hide its ABV very well. Not awful but I probably wont buy again.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap @ the ber Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Light amber or deep gold depending on how you choose to look at it. Lots of esters here, some banana, some marzipan, lightly spicy. Not bad.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Jungle Jims) Fairfield, OH.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Belgian style yeast, sweet malt and mild hops in the aroma. Hoppy bitterness, yeast and malty sweetness in the flavour. Quite balanced but not that tasty for a Belgian style brew.

Patrickctenchi (6468) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pours fizzy, yellow amber with a quick, off-white head. Candied-fruit aroma. Taste is a banana-apricot mix...slightly sticky-sweet. Pretty tasty.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin, kind of bubbly off-white head. Fades to minimal. No lace sticks. Bigger body. Crisp, kind of smooth lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good, banana flavor. Little vanilla. Light spice. Some orange citrus. Moderate sweet taste (lightly zesty), lighter bitter. Light alcohol bite in the finish, but its not bothersome. Doesnt excel in any way, but still an enjoyable, tasty, reasonably easy to drink American tripel.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2013
16oz bottle from the brewery poured into my New Holland pseudo-tulip (really! New Holland cant even do a tulip right - it is about a 10oz pour, and might be 8oz) from our trip for the Sprecher beer&cheese tasting, cellar aged 2 years. Pours a golden orange, slightly hazy, with a lot of veryfine bubbles leaving a small white head. Aroma has bananas foster (banana and caramel), cloves and sweet malt. Some belgian yeasty-ness shows later in the glass. Taste is of sweet maltiness, bananas and other sweet fruits with some spiciness. Light to medium bodied and sticky. Finishes sweet and somewhat thick. Became progressively sweeter and flatter throughout the glass. Shrug? It is Sprecher, but perhaps the overlong aging adjusted the balance too.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Hazy medium orange amber. Thin quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, wheat, Belgian yeast, some spices. Full bodied, a little carbo and yet sort of syrupy. and flat. Very sweet, yeasty, plenty of spice. Just not quite right. Ive had it a few months, maybe the bottle is a bit old?

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
12 ounce, twist-off bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, darkened gold body. Not appreciable head forms on pouring, and, what little is there, evaporates almost at once.

Smell: Clove buds marinated in alcohol, faintly bready pils malts, splash of honey wine, stone fruits, tropical fruits, and basic chewing gum.

Taste: Lightly bready malts, some balmy, grainy pils malts. Subtle sweetness. Early-arriving pinch of cloves and pepper. Fruitiness, most notably banana, pear and peach. Moderate bubblegum character. Noted alcohol though not overbearing. Drying on the back half with a turn towards a more tropical fruitiness. Alcohol definitely ramps up at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, but a little middle-of-the-road for me.
