This beer was served from a gravity keg at the brewery's 3rd anniversary party in Pleasantville, NY. Enjoyed with fellow BA Pleepleus.

A - Tons of hoppy sediment, which I think was multiplied from being served from a gravity keg. Foamy white head and a cloudy golden yellow.

S - Lots of hops in the nose with a citrusy sweetness.

T - Great beer. Not a lot of booziness despite the high 10.0ABV. Would like to try this beer in the bottle as well.

M&D - Smooth and crisp. Clean finish. Highly drinkable.

Worth trying if you can get ahold of it.

Poured into a Duvel glass. Nice bright, chill hazy golden with a pretty three fingers of near-white froth. Quite pillowy in appearance with lots of multi-shaped bubbles.
Aroma of dry champagne, honeydew, fresh baked bread. Nice fruity alcoholl vapor fills the nostrils.
Zesty yet dry in the mouth. Saltine cracker maltiness, with a nice burst of juicy fruity hop flavor. Kiwi, mango...of that variety. Zesty, juicy, then dry mouthfeel. Touch of tartness on the backend. Alcohol very well hidden...excellent version of an American Tripel...probably the best I have tasted. And a very nice beer for my 200th review.

Received in a trade with Ineedabeerhere. Pours a brilliant gold into my pint glass. The head is massive, frothy, and white. The retention is outstanding, and the lacing covers my glass.

The aroma is of yeasty apricot and lemon with a sweet, sugary malt profile. A bit of peppery spices and clove are present in the nose. The alcohol is barely detectable. The flavor is initially sweet with apricot and a bready, sugary malt backbone. The alcohol has a decent presence, yet doesn't hinder the other flavors. The cloves are present and the dry finish is peppery citrus with a little bitterness.

Light-medium bodied with a lot of carbonation and a dry, crisp mouthfeel. A delicious beer.

Reviewed on 4/11/09. Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, melon rind, and yeast. Classic abbey tripel aroma. Flavor is a bit more citrusy and finishes dry. Slight bitterness from the hops. Light and pleasant.

Growler from Bierkraft into Hennepin flute.

A--Pure gold. Body is very reminiscent of champagne (look out Miller high Life--we may have a new winner), tawny and golden. Spot on for the style. Head is almost three fingers of dense creamy white foam. Retention is remarkable, lacing is significant.

S--Sweet, with the candi sugar filling out the fruitiness of it, with considerable sweet nectarine, apricot, and a bit of citric (from the hops) tangy notes. Almost a cross between orange and apricot, or a muted grapefruit-peach hybrid. Less lemony, more limey, actually, which is weird and refreshing and wow do I have to taste this,

T--Even better. On the cool side it's quite sweet with more of that apricot swish in the middle. Fat, juicy malt shows the honey sweetness of the candi sugar it can meet its match. Some more tanginess from a nudge of hops, maybe cascade--dunno, but it's citric rather than floral, and the finish is parching and subtle and incredible. The sweet fruitiness of the opening of the tasting gives way to a gracious dry bow from the hops. This is nowhere near an IPA, but the hops are there, and complement the style tremendously from judicious, masterful use.

M&D--Creamy, bubbly, lively and fun. Alcohol warms as the beer does, but not in an unwelcome way. I had to take my next glass with food because I was getting an insta-headache, but that's just the way the Tripel rolls. Drinkability is fantastic and totally a million percent dangerous.

Wow. Maybe the best American beer I've ever had. This is a masterpiece, right up there with CL's Nor'Easter.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter - fridge temp - 2008

Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with lots of lively carbonation. The cream colored head rises 1" tall and shows great retention. Lots and lots of sticky lace on the glass.

Smell: Powerful spice from the Belgian yeast. Readily hopped with the mentioned Amarillo. A bit of a citrus and floral hoppiness. Very heavy pale malt aroma.

Taste: A pinchy spiciness come right off the bat. A big dose of Belgian yeast, pepper and booze. Slight banana and pale malt flavors. A weird mineral booze flavor in the finish. Some hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Spicy and boozy are two words that would perfectly describe this ale. Medium body with plenty of carbonation. It foams all the way down.

Drinkability: Not a bad brew. It needed to be a little more delicate with the spice and alcohol as they do get cloying. Not terrible.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into two white wine glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist! Extra special thanks to Ineedabeerhere for the trade and hook-up!

A: Pours a pale and hazy gold color with a bright-white head that slooowly receded to a thin, whispy skim that left a little bit of lace in the glass.

S: Aromas of spicy amarillo hops coupled with fruity yeast, green apple, spice, and a touch of sweetness.

T: See above. Abundant presence of amarillo spice, with fresh apple, yeast fruitiness, a touch of clove and candi sugar, and finally some herbal hoppiness.

M: Peppery and sticky. Slightly sweet in the middle with a nice dry finish.

D: Excellent. Great balance between hoppy, spicy, and sweet. I found it hard to detect any alcohol and I was shocked when I went to enter my review and I saw that this weighs in at 10% abv!

Draught at Beer Table.

Slightly hazy, gold with a slight amber tint.

Nose is yeasty, clove, a bit of candy sweetness and a crisp hop note that hints at pine, citrus, and even mint.

Taste is sweet, spicy, cloves, caramel malt, yeasty breadiness, and a very distinct dry, hoppy mint. Tropical, pineapple. Unique and delicious. Finished dry, crisp minty hop bitterness.

Surprised I haven't reviewed this before

pours a hazy golden with a white foamy head that takes a while to dissipate. A pleasant looking beer in my duvel glass

Smell is a bit sweet with fruity and citrus notes as well. The smell is mostly attributed to hops and the yeast, but there are some notes from the malt

Taste is not surprising considering the aroma. A nice light mouthfeel with good carbonation gives this a good crisp taste. Taste is like a well-hopped tripel with a hint of the alcohol.

Very easy drinking beer. I'm not a stickler for beer styles so I can accept this beer as an American Tripel and just enjoy it.

Bottle received as an extra in trade with fogdog. Much appreciated.

Beer looks the color of grapefruit peel, a yellow with a touch of cloudy pink. Two very dominant smells - the hops and honey. It smells almost apple juice like. Some apple, lemon and grapefruit notes as well. Interesting flavor - not sure I love it - but interesting. At first, you get the apples and sweetness of the tripel, followed by the bitterness of the hops, which linger for a few seconds before falling off. Same flavors as the nose - tart citrus and apples, even some tropical fruits. As the beer warms, the tripel style becomes more prominent, the hops less. Nice mouthfeel.

Interesting beer. I like it, but don't 'love' it. I put this with Cali-Belgique and Le Freak. For me, Le Freak is solidly the best, with Xtra Gold way ahead of Stone Cali-Belgique.

Pours a clear grapefruit peel yellow. An enormous fluffy white head falls pretty fast, leaving no lace. Obvious carbonation.
Aroma is lightly sweet with citrus and fruits, also a slight mustiness. Flavor is lightly sweet malt body with balancing bitterness and a slight tartness. Alcohol is moderately present. Overall a very light beer. Very easy to drink.

A nice American version of the tripel.

A golden amber brew with a large head and nice retention. Lacing is all over the Delerium Tremens glass and the beer is covered throughout the consumption. My subsequent pours introduce yeast and accompaniing cloudiness.

Smell is hoppy and honeyed with tripel maltiness. Faint banana and Belgian yeast esters. A light funkiness, somewhat skunky.

This is like a light Belgian IPA. Taste is sweet malt and hops. The predominant taste is a very good tripel but the hopping is bigger and more assertive. There is a strong honey and grain malt structure. A light pineyness balances it. Light citrus cuts in and takes the pine to the finish. There is faint bubblegum. Finish is very dry and not as hoppy as the body of the beer. A puckering, gently astringent quality leads to light mint and a refrain of the bubblegum along with dry wheat toast and a touch of scones. Alcohol is tucked into a peppery spiciness that never calls attention to itself. There is a bit of heat as you swallow that curves the edges of the tongue just a touch. Well concealed. Feel is actively carbonated with a vivacious filling of the mouth that transitions to a creaminess and quenching swallow.

Drinkability is deceptive. While a tripel and deserving of respectful sipping, the IPA like qualities encourage a bit more gusto. A happy conundrum but beware!

A great one to keep around and change pace from traditional Belgians. Not as in your face as a BIPA and therefore a wonderful surprise for all who partake. Get two bottles as one is a tease.

Spring 2008 bottle courtesy of gpcollen1 in a trade. Thanks for the opportunity and for introducing me to this brewery! 750 ml bottle poured into my snifter.

A- Body is a translucent golden yellow hue. Pours with a 2-3 finger white, frothy, yet creamy head. This head eventually fades completely leaving no lacing behind in the glass. When held up to the light I can see that the cloudiness of this brew is thick and uniform which is a big +.

S- My initial pour of this brew was while chilled and I honestly smelled nothing. The second pour...with the foam one could pick up a soft floral hop presence but nothing else...but when the head faded this brew showed its true colors. Its a wonderful soft balance of grapefruit, lemon zest, floral presence with an even softer sweet bready yeast background. I would label the scent slightly tart, but it is also bitter and sweet. Nothing is soft or overpowering.

T-Upfront are very soft flavors of floral hops and citrus-I pick up a little bit of lemon and grapefruit, with a slight yeast backbone. The finish is very soft as well with a bit of tart citrus, floral hop bitterness and flavor, sweet bready yeast, and a hint of phenols all balancing perfectly. These all disappear immediately nothing lingers on the palate...but after consuming most of this bottle there is a bit of alcohol heat lingering...not initially though.

M- Nice smooth light mouthfeel. The body is light and the highlight of the feel is smooth yeast but it also has a hint of alcohol in there.

D- As far as sheer drinkability goes...after at least 6 months the ABV is very subdues and barely noticeable...making this very deceptive. The flavors of this brew are very good-and very soft. If chilled its best to let this warm a bit before drinking-otherwise you are doing yourself a disservice. Its very good...but very soft...so I really didn't taste much during the first glass (which was slightly chilled). Another wonderful brew by Captain Lawrence!

A wonderful 750ml bottle that I was lucky enough to acquire in a trade recently. I had been wanting to try some of these more delicate beers from Captain Lawrence and I got my wish here. Served chilled and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 01/01/2009.

The pour was very nice. Rich amber in color with a light cloudiness to it. A good sized head of white came up over the top and settled down nicely into a small layer of foam across the top. Some light carbonation could be seen streaming up from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma was very nice and very complex. Light grain in the base and then a blast of sour notes coming through. Very, very nice. Light apples, pears, peaches, hints of anise and lovely earthy notes coming throughout. THe flavor was clean, crisp, sharp. Alcohol was totally hidden here beneath of blanket of nice fruit and light spices. Smooth finish here left a subtle tartness in the mouth and a really nice light grain flavor and a hint of green apples. Smooth mellow carbonation and a really fine finish,

Overall for a triple, this was fantastically drinkable. No hints of alcohol at all and really just amazingly complex. I would love to try this one on tap as I heard it is mind blowing. This is one that needs to be sought out!

A: Beautiful beer. Nice hazy orange yellow with big time white frothy head.

S: Smells more like a saison to me than a tripel. Yeasty, bananas, some floral notes and spice. May not be remembering well, but this really smells similar to a Brooklyn Local 1.

A- Pours a hazy golden-straw color with a thick 2 1/2 finger head that eventually diminishes to a thick sheet of foam, leaving splotchy lacing down the side of the glass.

S- Spicy and yeasty, as per the traditional Belgian style, with a surprising hoppy aroma with hints of pine.

T- Spicy with a unique Belgian-style hop profile, however a unique piney kick is present as well. Spicy notes of Belgian spice and the discinct Belgian yeasty flavor comes through. A refreshing citrusy kick of lemon is noted in the aftertaste.

M- Fine carbonation with a crisp finish.

D- Clean and easy to drink. Overall, this is a very good tripel, however, CL has put out better beers.

I bought a 750 ml. bottle of this last night from the Whole Foods in White Plains Ney York. I poured it into my tulip glass.

A- Nice cloudy gold with a slight orange glow. It poured with a nice 2" rich white head that receded at a good pace to a white skim coat on top. It had nice lace rings all the way to the bottom.

S- It smells quite nice! The first whiff reminds you of a good Belgium triple with that fimiliar funky yeast and bananas. It then takes on a nice floral note with hints of hops and sugar and traces of alcohol.

T- This tasted quite different than I expected. The smell led me to belive this would be typical sweet triple style. I found it to be pleasently dry and crisp. It is similar to the Belgium IPA style as the hops play a staring role. It has hints of bananas, yeast and sugar but the overall taste is a nice light floral hop note that dominates with out over powering. Pretty dry finish with a slighty lingering bitterness. It also has a really nice warming alcohol that is pretty well hidden.

M- It's a fairly light body for this style of beer, and had good champaign like carbonation that sent small bubbles to the top till the last sip.

D- I was pleasently surprised by this beer! The boottle describes it as an American Triple. It is a fitting description as it takes the best of the belgium style triple and puts a good old American spin on it. I thought it was very balanced between the fruity sweetness and floral hops. It definatly stand out in its catagory for me and a joy to drink. I will be picking up a few more next time I'm at Whole Foods. Cheers!

Poured from 750ml bottle on 12/11/08. Thanks to FooFaa for sharing.

A - Cloudy golden, light orange-tinted body with ample carbonation and patchy white head that diminished to a thin ring of retention.

S - Spicy yeast with a prevalent earthy, herbal hop character and good bit of citrus twang. Hints of clove, fresh garden herbs, barnyard funk, pepper and lemon rind.

T - Spicy Belgian yeast character with clove notes and a pretty aggressive hop profile for a tripel. Overall, an herbal character dominates, with some subtle earthy funk and citrus rind bitterness. A sour tang emerges toward the finish to add yet another dimention to this brew.

M - Medium body with a light syrupy texture and poppy carbonation on the tongue. Quite bitter in the finish with a mild lingering sourness on the palate.

D - I found this to be quite a complex tripel with a noticeable hop presence. Nothing really overpowered the flavor profile, making this a well-balanced brew that was easy to drink.

Thanks Kplynch for this bottle received in a trade. This beer had been kicking around my cellar and had not piqued my interest enough to break it out until I needed to clean house a bit. I am however, glad I did.

Light dull gold, slightly cloudy. Polished off a half bottle of this watching the holiday parade. The aroma and first sip have a big up-front of belgian yeast and a bunch of familiar hops. Some sweetness and good, medium body. Fairly drinkable.

Oh, and the bottle art pictured here is quite old..

Pours gold in color with plenty of carbonation and a decent inch of head on the pour. Smell is juicy, citrusy hops and some belgian yeast.
Taste is a perfect balance of belgian and IPA. This is the first of the style that I have thoroughly enjoyed. The hops are very citrusy and work well in this Tripel. Plenty of carbonation and bitterness in the hops that create a wonderful mouth feel. Wonderful beer and you never notice the 10% ABV. I could drink this regularly, very well done and enjoyable.

Purportedly among the best American breweres I had very high expectiations. Someone recently related this beer to RR Damnation batch 23 so I had higher expectations.

Together, this meant that I was rather disappointed with the actual beer. A bit under carbonated for a tripple and entirely too bitter (I know it is pumped as American hops etc... but it just didn't do it for me). Batch 23 is far superior....

I enjoyed it a great deal nonetheless. I just set myself up for something bigger....

Captain Lawrence, Xtra Gold Tripel (Tasted 11/18/08)
750 ml. bottle: poured into a chalice.

Appearance: Gold, duh. Head is a frothy white monster composed of tight bubbles, foams up quickly, then fades down into a one-inch cap, minimal lacing.
Odor: Pear, banana, pepper and faint grapefruit against a canvas of candy-sweet Belgian malt aromas.
Consistency: Creamy, medium body. Peppery alcohol and hop bitterness prickles at the tongue, however the carbonation level is perfect, this beer is still as soft & smooth as a babies bottom. There's a somewhat syrupy background to the feel, but it's barely noticeable with everything else going on.
Flavor: Pear and soft sweet bready malt rushes in first, joined by the aforementioned peppery alcohol notes and a bit of grassy hop flavor. Alcohol warmth sets in slowly, some honey flavors come into view as the hop flavors intensify, slight grapefruit and pineapple juiciness. Finish is clean, leaving a bit of grassy, bitter hop flavor and spice behind.

I'm pretty sure this bottle has been sitting in a warehouse for a while because the hop flavors are not nearly as intense as noted by others, but that's the beauty of it. While the hop flavors have become less intense over time, it's still a damned fine tripel. I hope to get a taste of this fresh in the near future.
