Commercial Description

"Our Trippel Belgian Style Ale (pronounced triple) opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters implied by our Belgian yeast strain. "

    [Best served in a Trappist glass]

    The pour was a clear medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that receded down to a large puddle and small collar with good spotty lacing.

    The aroma was mild of a light bread malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of banana, apple, citrus (lemon) and a bit of coriander.

    The taste mildly sweet and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus and a slight fruity ester early on, becoming slightly bitter with a hint of banana, a pinch of spice and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with a creamy spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a medium carbonation.

    Overall a mild tasting Tripel with a good balance of flavors...

    Nice fruity esters. Some banana flavoring is apparent. Pleasant mouth feel, some alcohol warming, but not too much. Nice balance of malt and hops for a trippel.

    Although it has a high alcohol content, this beer tastes phenomenal, and isn't all that heavy. It has a hop that sits on your tongue and a sweetness that begs for another sip.
