OH BROTHER! is one of a series of special limited-run beers in styles that are more extreme or unusual. <P>This crisp, straw-colored ale is blessed with a host of spicy and fruity aromas. We brew it from pilsener malt, candy sugar and some very non-traditional hop choices. But hey, we never said we were monks. We’re just brothers.

Cloudy gold color with a thin head. Lots of coriander aroma, marshmallow and wheat. The flavor starts off heavy on the wheat, almost like a witbier. Plenty of coriander. Yeast and bread... very chewy. A bit of sugary sweetness on the finish.

Skyview (6076) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota. Pours a hazy golden brew with a thick white head that has some nice retention, spotty lacing that dissipates toa fine film and thin ring. Aroma of golden multi-grain malt, coriander, banana ester, candi sugar and a touch of orange zest. Taste is creamy, malty, light carbonation with flavors of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, coriander and some orange peel. Finish is slighlty spicy, some banana esters and a touch of white pepper. According to past ratings from two years ago it looks like Two Brothers have tweaked the recipe making this a fine Tripel to come out of America. Nice to see Two Brothers brought this one out of retirement after two years.

Hazy gold body. Foamy white head. Light sour fruit aroma with some light cedar. Flavor has glue like sour peachy hops. Light tropical belgian spiced malts. Its pretty good, unusually sour, but not bad.

A golden color with a quick fizzy head. A promising aroma of bananas leads to a citrus/peach flavor. Unfortunately it was sooooo sour that it burned my stomach. If I was going to have a triple (which I do alot), this would not be my top pick.

Lubiere (13991) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2006
Hazy blonde al with a thcik white head. Light coriander malt aroma, with light orange notes. In mouth, sour lactic notes overpowers the light candy sugar of the malt. Some orange peels noted, but the stringent sourness makes this a biut unpleasant. Guys, stick to the british style.

Straw-colored, hazy, white head. aroma is spicy, lemon grass. flavor is VERY tart, with plenty of lemon throughout. not very interesting or complex. a real bummer from 2 bros.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2006
Bottle: Dirty straw in color, very cloudy, thin white foamy head, spotty lacing.   Grassy aroma, fairly floral, some fiery spices, almost like garlic.   Muted floral flavors, very yeasty/bready.   Slight citrus aspect, but its very quick.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leans towards the thin side.   Finishes with a touch of cereal, soft floral aspect.   Remains semi-sweet after the finsih.   Tiz okay, but not like most Belgian Tripels.   Thanks JCaprioti for the trade!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Pour is hazy bright golden yellow with a thin dense white head that left good lacing...smell is perfumey and spicy with some nice yeasty character too...thin mouthfeel...taste is way sweet and citric at first with a strange sour flavor...no real depth to the flavor at all...no real spices to taste...just a cloying sweetness like when you finish a lemon drop candy and are really thirsty all at the same time...for 8%+ the alcohol is well hidden...

Pours light orange with minimal head. Nise is citrusy and spicy. Medium body. Mild malt flavor with gentle sourness in the finish.

muzzlehatch (4963) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2006
22 oz bottle from DiCarlos Armanetti in Mundelein, IL, (Dec 2005) drunk at cellar temperature from a La Chouffe glass at home. Pours with a smallish lasting snowy head atop a dark golden-amber translucent body....little lace or yeasty chunks apparent....middle-of-the-road sweet/sour aroma, with a bit of orangepeel and sourdough, little dusty-old yeast but really nothing to remember....mouthfeel fairly neutral with light yeastiness, medium body and a little syrupy/sticky character....flavor rather pedestrian, lightly orangey-peppery, bit of sourness and yeast....ehhh, hard to come up with anything to say, perhaps some sour apple as well towards the finish, yes that’s it, more tart than most at the end but really it doesn’t add up to anything significant, another attempt from these fine Illinois boys at something special that is just...adequate.
