COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the third scratch beer, we delved into our old Belgian notes and decided to go big for a nice warming feeling when you drink this beer,” says John Trogner. “This unfiltered golden ale is 10.1% abv. It is spicy and quite dry with a hint of noble hops. The yeast is the real flavor in this beer and we used a different yeast strain than we use for The Mad Elf. This yeast creates that drier taste.

yespr (44793) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2009
From bottle, blindtasting #10. Pours hazy yellow with a diminished white head. Dry malty aroma, somewhat cotton like. Mild spiced and dry hoppy base flavoured, yet with a solid sweet malt base - clearly declining towards the finish. Light malty note. Dry and spiced finish, lasting bitter and dry impression into the far finish.

Ungstrup (37284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2010
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of peaches and other fruits as well as medium notes of malt and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, peaches and other fruits, grain, and yeast as well as light notes of milk, leading to a lightly alcoholic finish. The moutfeel is smooth.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Miver. Pours a cloudy and opaque golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Medium body, lightly sweet fruit, minerals and vitamin C. Some yeastiness also. Dry finish without any greater bitterness. 010209

brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is a very turbid golden orange color with a thin white head forming a ring around the glass. S: Lots of spice to it and intensely sweet. There’s an almost meaty character to it, too. Fairly decent floral with lots of sugary notes and sort of oxidized. T: This beer is pretty sweet. Caramel sauce, sugar, brown sugar, and fairly oxidized. There’s some floral and maybe honey notes. Definitely old, but not bad. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Surprisingly decent for a three year old tripel. I probably wouldn’t want to have this again, but good enough for the tick.

GABF ’07. Pours yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, hay, straw), average hops (herbs), average yeast (earth) with notes of banana. Medium bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2007

3.5
hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a lighter and cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized head. Lots of floaters. Aromas of spices, yeast, citrus, and fruity. Tastes of spices (though not as strong or in the forefront as the aromas), vanilla, fruity and had a candi sugar sweetness to it (but not overly sweet). Medium alcohol finish (but I would not guess 10+%).

DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid deep goldish canary color with 2-finger off-white head and some floaties. The aroma was floral and spicy, with bready candi sugary malt, Saazy hops, and quite a bit of apricotty and peachy fruit notes. The flavor was on the candi sugary sweet side, even a bit cloying at first, with a lot of candi sugary malts, honey, peach, pear, and mid-palate floral and spicy notes. This is a solidly complex tripel that I enjoyed a lot.
