Tap at proof. Floral aroma Belgian yeast dough and fruit. Strong inviting aroma. Taste is much dryer than other triples. Almost a mix between a triple and duvel. Still has some sweetness with floral and earth notes. Really like this easily one of my favorite triples. JAXSON (604) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy orange gold with small white head. Yeasty, estery nose with banana, almost hefeweissen like in the estery qualities Mouth is soft and fruity, surprisingly dry upfront, lots of fresh hops, softly fruity. Surprisingly nice, I like this more than a lot of their Belgian styles. DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Draft notes from Blue Dog. Poured hazy deep golden straw colored with clingy white head. Nose is yeasty esters, some funk, hopcitrus. Taste was yeasty esters, rock sugary malts, astringent hopcitrus. High level of complexity in this. PhillyCraft (7108) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2012
On tap at Alla Spina with Pat. Pours a ultra hazy and glowing copper orange. Head was creamy, lacing was thick. Aromas of soap, peppermint, wheat, coriander, christmas spice. Crisp as hell. Taste was a tangy wheat beer with spicy hops, some fruitiness present after it warmed a bit. Further flavors of apple cider and bier de garde notes. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Tap at Victory. Clear straw with no lacing. Sweet malt and honey nose. Taste is sweeter candi sugar, mild herbal adjunct, Belgian esters. Pretty standard Tripel nose. Taste is standard Tripel- mild hefeweizen yeast character, big esters, spicy yeast, white sugar, mild hoppy twang. Very nice, normal Tripel. I took the liberty of categorizing this one from tasting though it is listed as 7% Belgian blonde ale at the brewery which places it in a nebulous position on ratebeer.

Hazy straw yellow body. Thin white head. No lacing. Aroma is mellow with hints of Belgian yeast, orange, and grainy-wheat. The aroma, especially after opening up for a few minutes was a significant improvement. Honey like sweetness, lemon-orange notes, wheat, mild floral character. Clean, light bodied brew with a refeshing semi-dry finish, and a light herbal/floral feel. A nice offering that should serve Alla Spina well for a house beer. [[email protected]
At the brewery today. Small glass, maybe too small to rate. Clear amber, lighter and more clear than I expected. Nose of wheat and malt. Almost no head, only moderate lace, pretty, but did not look like a tripel. Taste of wheat, yeast, malt, and a touch of hops, more hops than i expected in a tripel, but nice. Brewery actually lists it as a blond. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Fermentation. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Sweet banana, candi sugars, creamy sweetness, hints of spice and grass. Similar flavor without the viscosity, fairly dry with a spicy note to it. Not bad, just another Tripel. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2013
heavy bubbling in the transparent straw color, thin ring and island formed from moderate white film and small bubbles. Weedy grass nose, peppery esters hiding amidst banana. Flavor is strong banana at front, solvent and lemon mid before citrus zest finish, hints wheat throughout the full bodied, foamy experience. An attempt at marriage that doesn’t work, more hop needed to spruce this lemon-heavy tripel. Thankfully there’s no booze. Leafs93 (2293) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, pear and grass. Lighter then expected. Taste is sweet.
