This beer is made with one grain and 4 Belgian yeasts, a deceptive golden color, and a malty palate lend complexity to this Belgian Trippel Ale.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #36 (Jan 2010):

While the head might fall short, the lacing does leave some rings behind; light haze within the golden color. Faint lemon candy, taffy, ripe papaya, shortbread and peppery alcohol in the nose. Lemony and medicinal flavors start it off, and peppery alcohol rounds it out with some sweet but vague tropical fruit. Grainy; dry maltiness mixes well with the nutty yeast component. Warming alcohol never gives a feeling, even on the breath. Maltiness and an herbal flavor make up for a very pleasing aftertaste.

Perhaps not as refined or polished, but brimming with flavor. The complexities hit all the right spots for the style.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poored from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - A pretty, deep orange. Very hazy. Half a finger of head which fades quickly and no lacing.

S - Pears, oranges, a sweet maltyness. Definitely some alcohol present.

T - Very sweet. Tastes like sipping on a white wine. Grape, pear, apples, with an alcohol finish. Any bitterness that is present is overpowered by the sweetness.

M - Light bodied. Good carbonation.

O - Decent beer, not my favorite though. I prefer more of the bubblegummy yeast flavors in tripels as well as a dry, bitter finish. This is a bit too sweet for my liking.

Thirsty Dog Cerberus

Poured in tulip glass

A: Pours a deep rusty orange color with some sediments.

S: Pears, apples and maybe touch of honey. Has a familiar slight funky Belgian yeast aroma to it as well.

T: Sweet and sugary. Maintains the common flavors I've found and still can't quite get used to in the trippels I drank. A hint of alcohol on the end too.

M: Smooth.

O: I like this but not enough to search for it again. For me it's another go round with a style I'm trying to wrap my head around. Not bad . . . I'd drink again if offered.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-an orangish golden color with a fingers worth of white head that leaves a bit of foam around the edge

S-pale malts, spices, lemon and a bit of orange

T-pale malt, apples and pears with some bubblegum sweetness, honey, light spices, and some yeast

M-medium body, medium carbonation

Overall an enjoyable beer, but maybe a little to sweet for me
