COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sawyer’s Triple is based upon the traditional "Golden Triple" style of strong ale, hailing from Belgium, and weighs in at 7.6% alc/vol. The brew is deep golden in color with a distinctive spicy, sweet and hoppy nose. Effervescent carbonation leads to a modestly dry malt character with hoppy flavors and alcohol overtones. Sawyer’s Triple was formulated and brewed by Bill Sherwood.

A very nice tripel, Pours a medium gold, with fantastic foam, and lacing .. . light for the style but just as complex- light yeast, cider, honey, and dry apricots .. . light bitter finish that leaves you wanting more, good stuff. .. Can you tell me where the pube fair is?

22. Thanks, Riverside! Crystal clear bright dark gold. Very thin filmy head. Big green apple, toffee, and dust nose, joined by a bit of banana. Very much the classic tripel, other than the hefeweisen intruder. Crisp, sparkling body. Green apple, toffee, dust, and lots of banana on the mid-palate. The banana is a weird addition. Mild sweet finish.

Ernest (7661) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of sugar, pineapple, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The usual Stone small/dying head and dullish body makes the appearance a little depressing, but the aroma and flavor balance are decent. As I worked my way through an 8oz pour, the syrupy sweet quality eventually became overbearing, so there's no way I could ever stomach an entire 75cl bottle of this.

BuckeyeBoy (7534) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle Pours out a clear yellow topped with a small sand head. Aroma was of light sweetness and banana. Tast was more of the sweetness some corn (kind of odd) more of the banana and a nice spice. Thanks Toby

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bomber from the original 2003 batch (or the only batch if it wasn’t re-brewed). Poured bright and vibrant lighter orange with a wispy dusting of white head. The aroma showed some age and deterioration, but in the grand scheme of things it held up very well.. paler malts and much less lighter fruit supported dry, dusty cracked pepper and plenty of yeast. The flavor was centered around tacky pale malts with peppery, banana, and spicy yeast overtones.. the hops broke down, leaving a bit of cardboard.. finished dry and spicy over the emergence of light vanilla. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, unfortunately a little empty right on the back. This was undoubtedly better a few years back.

Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Bright gold brew with bright white head. Very soft presence of hops, Belgian yeast sweet malt adds to the picture. Complex brew that some might not notice such fact due to its softness.
