COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Were just brothers.

JorisPPattyn (9711) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2005
Light-orange beer, very sparkling hue, some hazyness; good white head, fine and with slightly orange taint. White candy sugar, as well as the inevitable citrus. Fruity and vinous nose, dried apricots, botrytis. Dry orange peel, touch of spiciness, tinned mandarine parts on juice, and I cannot exactly place the spice. Quite dry, whilst spritzy MF despite little visible carbonation. Very original taste - even when I would rather call it Belgian strong ale than a classic tripel. Fusel alcohols, real ethanol is very well hidden. Big thanks to Lachesis, who brought me what Jason and Jim didnt - but its great, brothers!

22oz 2012 bottle. Belgian-style yeast, banana, light spice. Lightly sweet, and spicy taste. Little bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. Soft, smooth carbonation, medium body. Dry texture. Mostly clear, golden color. Little white head. Little lace. Enjoyable tripel, well done.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Overly sweet for the style, this Tripel attempt showcases orange peel and egg pie wackiness in a hefty body marred by tart manneurisms.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy orangey blond.
-Soapy notes delve into bubblegum in the nose.
-Citrusy wheat seems confused.
-This is a good example of how Americanized Tripels can be off the mark. Then again, its hard to believe this bottle contained the brew they really wanted to get...

Bottle.

JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Sampled at the Two Brothers tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 5/21/09. Cloudy/chunky orange-ish copper pour with a medium off-white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma with a bit of tartness. Sweet and sour flavor with plenty of malt and citrus fruit. I liked this one a lot better than I thought I would.

TheAlum (7096) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Rating #100 of Illinois brewed beers. 22 oz bottle purchased from Party Liquors (Steger, IL). Bought on a whim and because it was in the cooler and was to be promptly drank. Pours a hazy amber hue, with bits of gold nestled into the body. Medium white head that sticks around, laces, and continues to grow as the bottle is continously poured in. Aromas are fruity and belgian yeasty spice in a nutshell, a touch of estery presence, banana and citrus, mix well with some belgian candy sugar and spice. Taste is similar, lighter bodied, but still a presence. Dry yet fruity sweetness, interesting, but not a favorite. Finishes with a bit of a remembrance of the flavor. Cheers!

Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Golden honey color. No head at all. Aroma is yeast, sugar, fruit, and alcohol. There is a lot going on from the first sip. All of the aroma flavors along with some mildly bitter hop, yellow apples, wheat, and a hint of spice. No carbonation in the mouth. Yeast had settled to the bottom of the 22 oz. bottle and the pour was much darker upon emptying it. That must cause considerable difference between the bottle and draft. Aroma and flavor became more "wit-ish" with clove and banana. Not among the best of its style but still quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 Clear straw color with nice lacing. Lagar yeast then peppery, musky smell. light body. Nice taste is grainy, yeasty, with an essence of oak. Finishes crisp and clean. A great triple

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!
