1 yr aged bottle pour..golden color..bottle conditioning evident as one can see yeast/sediment action at bottom of bottle..slight head..fairly carbonated..a little hazy and cloudy..tried to keep sediment in bottle..nose of clove..spice..Banana..typical belgian taste profile..warming and strong on finish..quite nice..one of better american produced versions of the style..reminds me a lot of aged bottle of la fin du monde..just not as complex..very enjoyable however and worth cellaring to allow things to get more interesting.. weihenweizen (3825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle with bird on the shoulder of a monk poured into a trappist glass. Pours clear pale golden with small white head, little lacing, very little carbonation, and light clove aroma. Taste is stale clove, hints of fruit, grainy yeast, some alcohol, and slightly bitter finish. Expected more, really not comparable to the other triples I have had lately. solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Nice little surprised I packed away for the doldrums of Central American beer. It definitely lived up to expectations. Smells floral with some sweet malt. Pours cloudy orage with good head and lacing - even in this hostel coffee cup Im drinking it in. Taste has light sourness and sweetness. Some boozy bitterness as well. Bottle from village beer merchant. ronaldtheriot (1932) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Stoudts Triple has a medium, fizzy, white head, minimal lacing, and an opaque, orange appearance, with lots of floating gray matter. The aroma is of sweet bread, fruit cake, figs, and dates, and the flavor is the same, with a back-end bitterness and an underlying alcohol note. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Stoudts Triple finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this would be an outstanding beer to have early in the morning with eggs, bacon, grits, toast, and a biscuit. Overall, I think it’s an absolutely lovely beer! RJT

Well-rounded tripel that has some high notes in the nose and the taste. Certainly improves with cellaring.

12oz bottle - pours watered down honey with white head and thin lacing. Nose is yeast and spicy. Flavor adds hay, alcohol and cereal. Sweet. Light to medium body. Light for the style but aromatic. Citrus aftertaste. Comparable to Ommegang’s Hennepin. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Cloudy orange yellow color with thin white lacing. Banana and tangerine esters. Full bodied with bubble gum and coriander notes. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2012
12oz bottle from Pinocchio’s. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow-amber color With a thin white head. Aroma is yeasty, clove, a little banana. A little heavy on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, yeasty, clove, bread, a little boozy, with a light, yeasty finish. A decent American tripel. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
12oz bottle. Hazy orange - yellow color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Thin fizzy slightly off-white head, fades to minimal. Nice aroma - banana, plenty spice and esters. Little loose dots of lace. Soft, bright lighter carbonation. Spicy taste, some zest. Very little alcohol warmth, but it’s welcomed. Vanilla. Clove. Yeasty. Light pepper. Ginger? Solid and interesting tripel. I’d say it’s up there with Victory’s Golden Monkey, as far as Midwestern Tripels. deyholla (11598) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours Pours a near clear gold with a bit of sediment and a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of sweetness with notes of fruit, cookies and grain and just a hint of spice. Flavor has sweet grains up front with a slight grassy and floral note. The finish has a bit of booze with a light spice note.
